What a great series!  When I was offered the chance to read and review False Sight, I knew I had to read book one, False Memory, first.  I loved False Memory, and started False Sight immediately after finishing book one.  I was so happy that I was able to read the first two books in this series back-to-back.  It made it so fun for me to stay in Krokos'  fascinating world.  I feel like I got to know the characters really well in book one, False Memory, and I fell even more in love with them in False Sight

The idea of the multiverse is a new and thrilling concept for me.  To think that there are multiple worlds, multiple versions of Earth, is really captivating.  I love that premise.  Beyond the basis of the multiverse, the False Memory series is also about clones, another enticing subject.  To think that there are numerous versions of a character, each living their own life with their own destiny, is really fun to read about.  And also a little bit creepy, but in a really thrilling way.  The idea of transferring one's memories and essentially, their mind, into a new body is intriguing.  It's something I used to wish for as a young child: having the health problems I do, I used to long for my brain to be implanted into a new, healthy body.  And that's exactly what happens for some of Krokos' characters.  Their memories are transferred into clones of their old bodies, essentially giving them the ability to live through anything. 

I love Miranda as a heroine.  She is strong and always does the right thing.  I love a character who is tenacious and full of integrity.  I really admired Miranda and was quite invested in her story.  

False Memory was full of twists that I never saw coming.  I love it when authors surprise me, and Krokos' writing is full of shocking revelations.  The writing style was perfect: descriptive without being superfluous, neat, clean writing which was very direct.  There were no redundancies or extra words in either of the False Memory books.  I loved that about False Memory: Krokos gets right into the action and stays there for the entire book.  The pacing was just right, with the action pretty much non-stop throughout the entire book. 

I loved everything about False Sight.  I can't think of one thing I'd change about it (which is rare for me).  The False Memory series is unique, thrilling, and all too believable in its plausibility.  I loved it and can't wait for book three!
