Review: The Memory Keepers

What would you do to survive if you’d been alone since you were small? Appropriate goods to sell? In futuristic London, memories are the currency of worth so Seven steals them. He knows he faces the death sentence if he’s caught but that’s the cost of living for Seven.

When he is caught in the vault of London’s criminal prosecutor, he thinks his life is over but Alba, the prosecutor’s daughter is far from the arrogant spoilt rich girl Seven expected. The two take tentative steps to connect despite the chasm that separates their worlds and life looks up for both of them. But when people close to Seven are attacked as a result of the memory he stole, life tilts irreversibly for both of them.

Government secrets are uncovered, people are murdered and memories changed forever in The Memory Keepers. Although a little on the slow side to start, the ride is worth waiting for. Intrigue, hope and heartbreak make the pages fly once the action hots up.

A perfect escape-read anytime.
