I don't know who I am. I don't know what I am. All I know is that I'm being hunted, and this world is not my own.
Lost in a world full of monstrous fairies, a troubled 16-year-old has to find out who she is and why her memories were stolen before she is found by those who want her dead.
She takes the name Memory and knows she has just one goal - to find her way home, wherever that is. But this land is strange. No technology to be seen, and iron is banned thanks to a pact the humans have with the magical creatures who share their Victorian-era world. In her T-shirt and torn jeans, Memory knows she's different even before she performs impossible magic.
Haunted by her past, chased by a dragon, wanted by the king, and stalked by the strange, handsome savage who seems to know her, everyone is after Memory, and she suspects it's not just for her eye-catching outfit. Her forgotten past holds dangerous secrets that will challenge everything she believes and risk the lives of everyone she loves.

An imaginative read.

An imaginative and engaging read.
What would you do if you awoke in a strange place with absolutely no memories of who you are!! Well that's what Memory has to deal with. She awakens to find herself face to face with a girl she doesn't know, a world she never knew existed, no memories of who she is, a savage that seems to know her and an affinity to magic that she never in her wildest dreams would of imagined. She is thrown into a fight for her life with no idea of why she is on the run. What follows is an action packed and engrossing read!
Character wise: Memory is a hard character to grasp at the start because you don't get a sense of who she is. You find yourself on the journey to finding out who she is alongside Memory, which I liked.
Then we have Eloryn. The girl who finds Memory and is on the run from wizards. She has lead a sheltered life and is now on her true path to become who she was meant to. I liked Eloryn, she is a sweet and innocent girl but is brave when needed and helps Memory.
We also have 2 different boys, one is the savage who seems to know Memory and Roen, who is a noble but living in secret. Both of the boys were well written and developed and I loved finding out more about them.
Plot Wise: It's quite slow to start but once it gets going, it really flows. We have magic, mystery, wizards, dragons and plenty of danger to keep everyone satisfied.
The world building was amazing. I loved the world Mem wakes up in and the author describes it perfectly. I loved the different magical beings also.
Anyway, overall I really enjoyed this and loved the audio. Em Eldridge did a great job with the girls and distinguishing between them. She gave each character her all and it showed.

BEAUTIFUL SISTER STORY!!!
Would you consider the audio edition of Memory's Wake to be better than the print version?
Always is, but I only listened!
What other book might you compare Memory's Wake to and why?
This is unique...in a far away land of magic, royalty and fairies!!!
Which scene was your favorite?
The end where the sisters rescued each other!!!
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
I;m not sure, but this would make a wonderful movie!!!

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
This was a very enchanting listen, 2 sisters lost to each other, and finally find one another! Memory is in a different world than Aloryn...and one day the 2 worlds meet...Aloryn has been hidden her whole life because she is royalty, and her mother was murdered...Memory is sucked into this world and has lost all memory of who she is and where she belongs...Well fate has brought these 2 girls back together, and they do not now they are sisters...actually twins! Memory is in odd dress, and Aloryn is all formal...well they have to work together with the help of many others along the way to survive! Really great listen and I definitely want to continue this series!! The Narration was very pleasant too!!
I RECOMMEND...WELL WORTH YOUR TIME AND A CREDIT!!!
Thank You Audiobookblast(dot)com
