Review: The Memory Thief by:L Mansy

 The Memory Thief

 **Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:

 In the city of Craewick, memories reign. The power-obsessed ruler of the city, Madame, has cultivated a society in which memories are currency, citizens are divided by ability, and Gifted individuals can take memories from others through touch as they please.

Seventeen-year-old Etta Lark is desperate to live outside of the corrupt culture, but grapples with the guilt of an accident that has left her mother bedridden in the city’s asylum. When Madame threatens to put her mother up for auction, a Craewick practice in which a “criminal's" memories are sold to the highest bidder before being killed, Etta will do whatever it takes to save her. Even if it means rejoining the Shadows, the rebel group she swore off in the wake of the accident years earlier.

To prove her allegiance to the Shadows and rescue her mother, Etta must steal a memorized map of the Maze, a formidable prison created by the bloodthirsty ruler of a neighboring Realm. So she sets out on a journey in which she faces startling attacks, unexpected romance, and, above all, her own past in order to set things right in her world.

My Review:

 Etta's main goal is to ultimately save her mother and her mothers memories. She feels that she will have to turn to people that she would rather not turn to, in order to save her. The overall premise of the book was promising but lacked substance. It was an intriguing plot line but yet it didnt quite go anywhere, which a lot of others have commented on. You will follow along as Etta Lark goes above and beyond to help her beloved mother. With many twists and turns the story fizzles out by mid story and by the end I found it severely lacking and I couldnt stay interested.
