Book Review: Unforgotten (Unremembered #2) by Jessica Brody

After a daring escape from the scientists at Diotech who created her, Seraphina believes she is finally safe from the horrors of her past. But new threats await Sera and her boyfriend, Zen, at every turn as Zen falls prey to a mysterious illness and Sera’s extraordinary abilities make it more and more difficult to stay hidden. Meanwhile, Diotech has developed a dangerous new weapon designed to apprehend her. A weapon that even Sera will be powerless to stop. Her only hope of saving Zen’s life and defeating the company that made her is a secret buried deep within her mind. A secret that Diotech will kill to protect. And it won’t stay forgotten for long.

Packed with mystery, suspense, and romance, this riveting second installment of Jessica Brody’s Unremembered trilogy delivers more heart-pounding action as loyalties are tested, love becomes a weapon, and no one’s memories are safe.

I loved book one, Unremembered, and was on pins and needles waiting for book two.  I'm happy to say that Jessica Brody did not disappoint with Unforgotten.  It was every bit as good as book one, and I can't wait for the next book in the series!

I love the premise of this series.  It's a combination of time travel, sci-fi (Sera and Kaelen were created, not born) and mystery.  There was so much going on in this book, and Brody wove it all together seamlessly.  

Unforgotten starts out with Sera and Zen living in 1609.  I love historical fiction, so to have part of the book occur in the past made me enjoy Unforgotten even more.  The time-travel aspect of the story was really well-developed.  I think it's interesting how authors all have their own take on the mechanics of time travel.  

Unforgotten is so many things, but at its heart it's such a great love story.  I love that: this book is so much more than just a love story, but the relationship is an integral part of the book.  Brody struck the perfect balance between Sera and Zen's love for each other and the rest of the plot.  The book did not lean too heavily in either direction.  I don't like reading books with absolutely no love story---I have to read about someone falling in love---yet I love it when books have a detailed plot yet still have a well-developed love story.

I thought that Unremembered had a lot going on as far as the characters (there were so many) and the plot, but Unforgotten takes it one step further.  I loved that I never knew what to expect from this book and that Brody continually surprised me.

I can't say enough good things about this series.  I really loved everything about it!  Except for maybe that huge cliffhanger of an ending.  Now I have to wait for book three: but I know it'll be worth the wait.  I highly recommend Unforgotten!
