Climbing Higher with Emily Colin


The Memory Thief: A Novel

Thank you Emily Colin and Librarything for sending me a copy of this novel The Memory Thief.  Emily is a debut author with a wonderful novel!

Synopsis:

Maddie warns her husband Aidan that he shouldn’t go on this latest climb.   There might be severe consequences.   Aidan chooses to go on the climb anyway.  While on the climb something happens.  Over in another part of the country Nicholas is recovering from a car accident, but does not remember anything.  Nicholas wakes up  with someone else’s memories.   Maddie and Nicholas both have premonitions about what happened to Aidan.   Are there any attachments between Nick and Maddie?   Will Maddie survive her latest trial?

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed this novel!   I thought the characters are very life like.  I also felt the sadness that Maddie, Gabe, and JC experienced.   The story had so many twists and turns that I was actually surprised  the way it ended.  The only  aspect of this novel is the numerous intimate scenes within this novel.   I feel that a story can be told without having so much of it.   Overall a very creative and descriptive novel.  I look forward for more from this author.

What would you do if you woke up with memories that weren’t yours?  Would you be freaked out?   Wonder what might have happened?  Or could there be a supernatural element?  The author uses a supernatural emphasis throughout this novel.  

Please stop by and visit Emily at Facebook, Twitter, and her website.
