Blog Tour Memorys Wake By Selina Fenech

Memory’s Wake by Selina Fenech
(Memory’s Wake Trilogy #1)
Publication date: June 16th 2011
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Lost in a world full of monstrous fairies, a troubled sixteen 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 pre-industrial 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 that 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.

Memory’s Wake contains over 45 illustrations by the author and artist.


My Review

We meet Memory or Mem, waking from unconsciousness after having a real bad nightmare or was it? Memory meets Eloryn who she thinks is a Ghost girl. Memory cant remember anything of who she is, where she from, what her name is-which is why Eloryn gives her the name Memory. Memory is dressed completely different from Eloryn. Eloryn tells Memory if she helps her find Alward, she will help her get her Memory's back.

The girls have a long and difficult journey ahead of them. And have to decide who they can trust? Will after everything they go through, will Memory take the chance of getting her memory back even the bad ones?

I loved this book. I loved everything about it, especially the pictures. I felt like a little girl again reading about fairies and magic. This book was amazing. I loved the cover, the blurb, everything was right about this book. I loved how Eloryn and Memory's relationship changed. It kept me enthralled all the way through.

This book is amazing. Look out soon for my review of the next book in the series Hopes Reign.

This book gets 5/5 stars
