Review: Erased by Jennifer Rush

ErasedTitle: Erased

Author: Jennifer Rush

Genre: YA Science Fiction

Series: Altered (Book #2)

Publication Date: January 7, 2014

Format: Hardcover, 275 Pages

ISBN-10: 0316197157 (Little, Brown)

Reviewed by: Roxanne

Synopsis:

They thought they had escaped. They were wrong.

After fleeing the Branch with Sam, Cas, and Nick, Anna is learning how to survive in hiding, following Sam’s rules:

Don’t draw attention to yourself.

Always carry a weapon.

Know your surroundings.

Watch your back.

When memories from Anna’s old life begin to resurface—and a figure from her childhood reappears—Anna’s loyalties are tested. Is it a Branch set-up, or could it be the reunion Anna has hoped for?

Ultimately, the answers hinge on one question: What was the real reason her memories were erased in the first place?

Quick & Dirty: Four boys, one girl, missing memories. Will the search for answers turn every thing upside down.

Opening Sentence: Like Clockwork, I woke after mid-night and immediately had the urge to see Sam.

Excerpt: Yes

The Review:

Anna and the boys are back in book 2. Since I found some issues with the last couple of series that I hadn’t read the previous books, I got a hold of Altered and read it right before Erased. So disclaimer aside Anna, Nick, Cas and Sam are back with some minor appearances by Trev. They are in hiding still and constantly moving their locations despite the ending to Altered, they clearly don’t trust the Branch. When Dani (the supposedly dead sister) pops back up the rush to find answers is on.

The gang with the help of Trev locates Dani and move in to rescue her, they also end up rescuing three other guys. When a code word sets the three new guys off, Sam decides to break the group in two leaving Nick and Anna on their own. Anna drags Nick to meet her uncle whom she has just found out is alive and to get more answers. Or is it just more lies?

In a final showdown will the truth come out? Whew this book was action packed and I must say that despite liking Sam and Anna in Altered I was more than happy to jump ship to Nick and Anna. Not going to say if I ended up disappointed or not…okay, maybe I will. Yes, sigh — I was despite the fact that I really feel like the author put a lot of work into some kind of triangle and then just abandoned it. I mean abandoned it, there was a lot of buildup and no real resolution or dealing with the buildup. Everyone just kind of acted like nothing happened. Seriously, for a fickle shipper like me I was heartbroken…

That being said, I was so glad to see there was a book 3, and I am dying to find out what happens. All though I really thought with the way Erased ended that it was the last book and was working on being bitterly disappointed. So yes, I was invested despite shipping all the wrong couples’. I flew through this book, just had to know what was going to happen and how it was going to end. Now I am off to find book 3 and see how the trilogy ends. Enjoy it, I know I did!

Notable Scenes:

“This could be another trap.”

“Sam immediately flicked his attention to me, checking my reaction.”

“A kiss that felt like goodbye.”

“I pressed the button.”
