Since her mother vanished nine years ago, Anamae and her father have shared a quiet life. But when Anamae discovers a brooch identical to her mother’s favorite pendant, she unknowingly invites a slew of trouble into their world. They’re not just jewellery, they’re part of a highly developed technology capable of cloaking the human form. Triggering the jewellery’s power attracts the attention of a secret society determined to confiscate the device — and silence everyone who is aware of its existence. Anamae knows too much, and now she’s Enemy Number One. She’s forced to leave her father behind when she’s taken in by a group determined to keep her safe. Here Anamae searches for answers about this hidden world. With her father kidnapped and her own life on the line, Anamae must decide if saving her dad is worth risking her new friends’ lives. No matter what she does, somebody is going to get hurt.
Okay, this book was interesting. I liked the premise, and when I saw a chance to get the book, I thought, “Hey, why not?”.
I first read this book because it was written by a person who had given me some valuable information on pitching a story and guided me through the confusion of the Pitcharama contest, which resulted in my first request from a publisher.
Okay, I’m sure you’ll all saying,
Uhm, yeah. I didn’t tell y’all. I wanted to wait until I heard back from them. And, quite frankly, I haven’t yet. Either my novel was so bad they didn’t want to tell me, OR they’re still reading, OR they’re drafting a rejection letter right now. 🙂 Don’t worry, I’m fine. I expect them to reject my novel. *shrug*
Forget Me Not was… well, there was a love triangle.
In love triangles, one guy gets a broken heart, and the other gets the girl. Love triangles are desperately cliche. I was a bit upset over it, because I had been enjoying the book. The MC also does several things that are deliberately idiotic.
Forget Me Not was an interesting read, don’t get me wrong. The cliches wore me down, thought.
What do I rate it?
Three and half stars.
