In a stark future world wrought from man's inclination toward annihilation, two groups of people struggle to survive and shape the future of mankind. The group known as the Myths is led by bloodthirsty, power-hungry Vernon, whose primary goal is to shape the future of civilization the way he wants it, with him at the helm. And he has the power, determination, and lack of morals to achieve his goal at any cost. Working against him are the Preservationists, or Presers, a group of genetically enhanced humans whose lives are centered around a single goal: preserving the knowledge of the past so it may be used in the future when mankind is ready to rebuild a humane and wise civilization. At the heart of the Preser's effort is Shelana, a young woman determined to protect her daughter and pass on the information and knowledge that is her destiny. But that determination puts her at the bull's eye of Vernon's target as he attempts to wipe out the Presers once and for all, changing Shelana's destiny to one of mere survival and, after her family is murdered, one of vengeance. It's a fool's task except for one thing. Shelana possesses a powerful but deadly secret: knowledge of Vernon's one potentially fatal mistake. If she can survive long enough to use this knowledge, it will give Shelana hope for the vengeance she seeks, and all of mankind hope for the future. If she can survive....

I was one of a privileged few who read Memory's Child years ago when Spratley first wrote it and I'm ever so happy to see it finally out there for others to read. It's a definite page-turner, a cautionary tale set in a world that is bleak and depressing, but woven through with threads of hope for a brighter future.

Picked this up as the post-apocolyptic scenario sounded different, which it was. Writing was a bit uneven, characters were fairly well developed although not always consistent but the storyline made it an entertaining read for me ... until I got to the cliffhanger ending. Ended just minutes before a big battle began between two of the major groups.

Major pet peeve for me and I've been running into this gimmick so often lately, I've lost every bit of patience I ever managed to develop for it.

Updated to add: Author has written a novella to continue this story and I have upgraded my 1-star rating which I gave due to the cliffhanger ending to a 3-star. Would probably have rated it even higher but I'm still personally annoyed at the initial cliffhanger ending.

A fast paced, well written sci fi novel with realistic characters & a plot that sucks you in. I couldn't put it down. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel to see what happens next.

Lynette,

I finished your book and OMG lady!!! It is such an awesome book! I hate that it ended. I can not wait to see what happens to Shelana, Race and Fellon. They have sooo much more to do and so much story left to be told. I have just fallen in love with them and when I got to the last page, I was sick that it had ended. When will the next book be out? I'm dying out here not having another book that continues on where this one left off. Congratulations Lynette! You definately have a winner on your hands. For anyone that has not yet read Lynettes' book by all means, get it now!!! SMemory's Child (Phoenix Nest: Guardians of the Future)tick with after you start reading it. It gets better and better the more you read. Very addictive! Hugs girl, you have made it!

I liked the plot even though it was a little drawn out. I don't ordinarily read romances, and I got tired of Race's selfishness. I didn't see much to love about the man. Scattered throughout the story are commentaries about society and environmental issues, which are a little preachy. The ending was abrupt, leading into the sequel(s). For a free book, it was okay. I probably wouldn't buy the sequel.

I had real problems with the writing at times. At one point the hero's eyebrows get raised like caterpillars racing up a tree. Really? There were also some real inconsistencies with some of the characterizations. We are told repeatedly what a genius the heroine is, yet there is so much she doesn't notice or can't figure out even though she is also considered to be exceptionally curious. Perhaps she just has a really good memory, but we are told (never shown by any evidence in the story itself) that she has a super high IQ. I kept waiting for her to use it at least once or twice, even in a way that didn't matter much to the story, but I can't remember even one incident where she did. Sometimes, she was treated as humorously naive, and she shouldn't have been if she had the intelligence she was supposed to have had. I could never get passed this problem. Also, the character of Race is very inconsistent - cold one minute and overly solicitous the next. The time sequence is not very well laid out. I had to work to figure out how much time had passed.
********SPOILER ALERT (I guess.)********** Finally, the book ends just as we reach the climax. All that buildup, and then it drops off.

I like to give indie writers a break, especially on early efforts. But when they have received so many positive and very generous reviews, it does seem like a dose of reality is needed.
