Review: Forgotten by Krista Street

About the book:

Forgotten memories. Supernatural abilities. Mysterious tattoos.

Four months ago, Lena woke up in a dark alleyway with no recollection of who she is. The only clues to her past are a mysterious tattooed symbol and a supernatural power: the ability to see evil in people.

While struggling to regain her memory, she follows a strange guiding instinct to a small Colorado town. There she finds other young men and women with similar stories, similar tattoos, and a multitude of superhuman powers. Among them a man she’s intensely attracted to, yet with no memories of him, she has no idea why.

As Lena and the others explore their powers and try to figure out who and what they are, they make a frightening discovery. Those who know the answers to their questions are hunting them. And if they find them, these superhumans may not survive.

Review by Katy Haye:

Forgotten was a treasure! Alternately intriguing, dramatic, heart-warming and chilling, I enjoyed every word.

Having a couple inexplicably attracted to each other is a bit of a staple of speculative YA fiction, but it’s almost always woefully done and leaves me rolling my eyes. By contrast, the relationship between Lena and Flint was intriguing and always convincing – and developed into something that had great depth (and a nice chunk of heat!). I love the pair of them and I can’t wait to spend more time with them.

The world-building was great, both in the “real” world, and the hints at the group’s backstory and what went on in the past. There’s clearly a lot more to be discovered as the group figures out everything they’ve forgotten, and I look forward to finding it out with them.

Katy Haye writes speculative YA fiction. Check out the first book in her new YA fantasy series, Awakened by Magic, while it’s just 99c/p. Kyann only wants to save her sister, but a greater destiny of myth and magic awaits her in the Empire of Charnrosa.
