Everything she does, along with her friends Mihkel and Sindri, is to keep her family alive even if it means constantly breaking the law. Captain Hawthorne, Elena’s father and second in command at CROSS, has been successful at getting them out from under a death sentence for their misdeeds. But, even his influence can only go so far. When Elena and Mihkel turn 18 their fates put them in the middle of a rebellion leaving Sindri behind. They learn about PULSE and how it effects their lives as it involves them in a web of treachery and treason. Who do they trust and what part do they play in the rebellion?
Titterington’s debut novel Memories of No One (PULSE Trilogy Book 1) is full of adrenaline rushing moments. Even with those moments peppered throughout, it took over halfway through the book before the story itself really took off. Elena’s character was well developed. She is a hardheaded teenager who is constantly going against the rules to do what she believes is the right thing for her family. She is fiercely loyal to her family and friends no matter the personal consequences. I was finally getting very interested in the story when the book came to an end, setting up for the sequel.
The copy that was sent to me for review was supposed to be after it had been professionally edited. There was numerous typos and quite a few plot inconsistencies that were distracting. I have made the author aware of those that I found. Hopefully, she will have them resolved before you get a chance to read the book. 3 out of 5 stars.
I received this book for free from the author for review consideration. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.
