What the mind forgets, the heart remembers.
Alone in a train station bathroom, Sophia Hernandez has no memory of who she is or how she got there. All she’s certain of are three things: her college ID is a lie, bad people are coming for her, and no one can be trusted.
The only clue to her past is the fellow student who finds her. Although Sophia’s gut tells her Kyle is lying when he claims he can’t help her, his touch makes her heart race. Is it because of a red-hot natural attraction, or a missing memory of something far more dangerous?
As two mysterious, menacing men chase them from the station, Sophia’s memories return in frustrating fragments. So do deadly skills she didn’t know she had. In the next forty-eight hours, a loved one’s life will be on the line as she sifts through a mounting tangle of secrets and lies.
Including the most heart-wrenching secret of all. Not only isn’t she a normal college student, she isn’t even a normal human.
Warning: Contains one girl who is more than she seems, one boy who knows more than he’s telling, and enough twists to give you whiplash. Expect explosions of all kinds.
Revive is a wicked good story! If you love contemporary thrillers with a dash of sci-fi, this should definitely be your next read.
This is my first book by Tracey Martin, but it certainly won’t be the last. She has a way of pulling the reader into the story very quickly and then blind-siding you with twists when you least expect them. The story has flashbacks, and they are done very well. I never became confused about what was going on. I did thoroughly enjoy the fact that I was in the dark as much as Sophia, though. It gives the reader a way to bond with the character, in my opinion. Speaking of characters, this story has an awesome cast; each person has a purpose and adds to the story, moving it forward. The depth to this tale is remarkable, to say the least.
Revive is a roller coaster of emotions with nail-biting intensity and perfect pacing from beginning to end. I highly recommend this book to all fans of thrillers and science fiction!
~About the Author~
Tracey Martin grew up outside of Philadelphia, the lucky recipient of a drama-free childhood, which is why she spent so much time reading about other people’s lives. It was while she was working on her doctorate in psychology that she had an epiphany–imaginary people are way more fun than real ones. And so she began writing. Never able to choose just one of anything, she currently writes both urban fantasy for adults and contemporary stories for teens.
She likes her coffee simple, her music epic, and her movies to contain explosions. A city girl at heart, she doesn’t understand how she and her husband ended up living in New Hampshire, but writing keeps her off the mean, small town streets. You can find her online at tracey-martin.com..
