Book Description

Adventure, Romance and Mystery in a Unique Fantasy World

I don't know who I am.
I don't know what I am.
All I know is that I'm being hunted, and this world is not my own.

Lost in a world full of monstrous fairies, a troubled sixteen year old has to find out who she is and why her memories were stolen before she is found by those who want her dead. 

She takes the name "Memory" and knows she has just one goal - to find her way home, wherever that is. But this land is strange. No technology to be seen, and iron is banned, thanks to a pact the humans have with the magical creatures who share their Victorian era world. In her t-shirt and torn jeans, Memory knows she's different, even before she performs impossible magic.

Haunted by her past, chased by a dragon, wanted by the king and stalked by the strange, handsome savage that seems to know her, everyone is after Memory, and she suspects it's not just for her eye-catching outfit. Her forgotten past holds dangerous secrets that will challenge everything she believes and risk the lives of everyone she loves.

From the very beginning of Memory's Wake, the reader is dropped into the action as Memory appears in the land of Avall with no memories of who she is or where she came from. She remembers things about another world, but it's clear from the soldiers chasing her and the monsters she encounters that this is not the world she thinks it is. Befriended and helped by Eloryn and later by Roen and the mysterious Will, Memory travels across the land in search of a safe haven, as well as the secrets of her identity.

I loved reading Memory's Wake. The action was almost non-stop, and in the quieter sections, romance or an amazing discovery pushed the story onwards - I didn't want to stop reading. I'm not just saying this because Selina's lovely artworks are making my banners look great this month!

The first thing you'll notice when starting to read this book is that it's illustrated - Selina has included 44 black and white illustrations throughout this book, some full-page, others small drawings at the start of each chapter. They translated very well to the kindle version and helped me to visualise an already very visual story.

Memory herself is a fantastic character - with just the right amount of absolute confusion with her amnesia and disorientation in a new world, she still comes out with the occasional witty remark that often the other characters don't understand. Her magic is quite terrifying - I am looking forward to reading more about that in future stories.

The ending left me with a lot of questions - Who ends up with Roen? What's Will's story? What happened to Memory in our world? How did Thayl find her there? and plenty more. I was pleased to discover that there are two more books planned in this series so hopefully some of my burning questions will be answered!

If you love fast-moving fantasy with a touch of swoony romance, nasty fae and plenty of magic, you'll love Memory's Wake.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little torn August 26, 2012
By Marla
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is kind of a tough one to review. There is a lot of energy and intensity to the story that keeps it moving at a fast pace, which is something I like, but that intensity is also in the writing, and sometimes it's just too much. You can see in the first page that sometimes the writing is a little overwrought. Everything is *super intense* and *soul shaking* etc etc. The reason I'm torn is because that is pretty much what being a teenager is like. I think the author does a great job of showing the confusion and and uncertainty of being a teenager, and she's created a fascinating world, and the mystery draws you in. I wish she had learned some restraint in writing though, because it quickly loses effect, and you just become immune to it. The illustrations are really stunning.

3.0 out of 5 stars cool story with flawed writing (2 1/2 stars really) August 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I borrowed this book from the Prime lending library based on the unqualified rave reviews. I decided to throw a tiny thread of dissent into the mix just to play devil's advocate here. Don't get me wrong. The fantastic pictures, quick pace of the story, and creative world-building; all drew me in right from the beginning. The quality of the writing, however, could definitely use some improvement. There were numerous times I was jerked out of the story when a sentence or image didn't make sense, a metaphor was strained to the wincing point, or word choice was just plain wrong. It was frustrating too that the girls were always fainting, falling, losing track of reality, and/or writhing in pain. It felt like they merely alternated between nausea, agony, breathlessness, and self-pity throughout much of the book. If the angst had been toned down, the female characters would have been much more likable and sympathetic. As it was, there were moments I wanted the villains to just put them out of their misery.

Amazon's self-publishing is a grand thing. I've found several really promising new authors because of it. Selina F. may be one of of them sometime in the future. She just needs to find a better and more critical group of "first readers" to help her edit her stuff before she puts it out there. Otherwise, we end up with books like this -- a frustrating near miss of a book that's a waste of some great creativity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical illustrations, magical lands! June 13, 2012
By Anni
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A magic journey filled with intrigue and adventure! Memory finds herself dropped into a fantastical land, with no memory of who she is or even what her name is. Dressed in punk-girl clothing and with pink hair and piercings - the readers understands she's from our time. She's given her name by a strange girl she meets - Eloyrn. Poignancy is introduced by the fact that Memory came into this magic world with bruises, yet doesn't know what happened to her. She and Eloryn form a friendship as they flee across the land of Avall - with wizards, the fae, dragons and an evil king to contend with (not to mention two handsome boys!). Avall is a fully fleshed out world, with a pact in place between this world and the world of humans. A wonderfully-told fantasy tale.
The exquisite illustrations add an extra layer to the tale of Memory's Wake - I've never seen illustrations in a YA novel before, and these are just gorgeous and not to be missed!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing! July 13, 2012
Format:Paperback
Memory's wake, by Selina Fenech, is a beautiful, romantic, dramatic novel!
Once you begin the book, the ready becomes instantly mezmorised and sucked into the story, praying for it to never end. The artwork included throughout the book lives up to all the amazing work Selina realeses elswhere, and is truely beautiful. The story is one of the most well thought out, well written, and mind turning stories I have ever read! I would recomend this book to anyone aged 15 or above, who likes romance, drama, and a little bit of drama.
