Book Description

“In our future is our past…”

A young man named Seven awakens on a deserted street, stricken by an amnesia that he can’t explain. When he discovers other survivors that share his affliction, among them a woman who stirs his dormant memories, they embark on a deadly journey across a ruined landscape.

Haunted by the mystery of their city’s apocalyptic demise and hunted by a malevolent beast, Seven and his companions discover the dark truth of their past.

What awaits the survivors at the crux of myth and legacy is a story of love, loss, and triumph that defies even death itself.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars; Outstanding Story September 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A man wakes up in post apocalyptic city with no memory or how he got there. A simple enough start... but things quickly become more complex (I'm trying to remain vague to avoid any spoilers) as other characters and plot elements come into play. Finally, things wrap up with a satisfying ending that brings closure to the reader. All in all, a solid story.

Since a big part of the fun as a reader is discovering the mysteries of this story for yourself, I will refrain from giving away any plot details. In an effort to help other figure out if this story is for them, I offer the following comparisons: Fans of the TV show LOST will enjoy this. It is a character driven story about people looking for answers in a mysterious location while being pursued by an unknown force. I also found elements of it reminded me of the videogame Myst. The reader is not gifted with omniscience, rather we figure out the mystery piece by piece just as the characters do. That's about the best I can do while I remain committed to not revealing specific plot details.

My one complaint: The ending, while very good, failed to explain the behavior of one of the central characters. I'm still pondering her motivation for her actions. Oh well, since other elements were wrapped up nicely I guess I can deal with a bit of ambiguity. (It's definitely a more satisfying ending then LOST presented.)

The story appears to be professionally edited and formatted with minimal errors found. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely one to watch out for!! April 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First off, this in no way reads like a debut work. I've read a lot of the current greats in fantasy: Abercrombie, Lynch, Sanderson, Rothfuss, Butcher, etc. This guy writes like a seasoned pro. From the very start he creates a world that's enticing and creative; his characters are recognizable, yet each has their own personality. When he jumps to somebody's POV, you can tell who it is. He does an admirable job with his characters. They've got their own motivations and histories driving them. And they've got some attitude as well.

As for the writing style: A+. I consider myself a snob in terms of writing level, and Mancilla writes better than a lot of big name authors. His imagery is absolutely amazing; it's evocative, poignant, and inventive. Actions can be visceral while motives are nebulous, objects can be ethereal while their sensations leave behind heavy scars. His writing really shines here.

As for the story itself, it'll keep you turning the pages. This author likes his twists and actually lays down all the groundwork for them. The conflicts are measured by both drama as well as mystery. You'll want to find out what happens as badly as the characters. If you download the sample, you'll end up buying the rest of the book because it draws you in, and you'll find that you just have to know what happens next.

If you like stories like Lost and Battlestar, do yourself a favor and buy this book. You'll love it, and hopefully it'll lead to more amazing stories by this guy. As talented as he is, I'm sure he's got lots more tales to tell.

3.0 out of 5 stars I really liked the fist third of this novel July 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This novel starts out strong. People who do not know who or where they are trying to figure things out in an abandon city pursued by a mysterious malevolent force, awesome. I became confused with the remaining two thirds of the story with flashbacks and a jumbled story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Confusing start but worth sticking with! January 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The official plot summary describes the confusion of the characters at the start of the book, but fails to mention that the reader is even more confused. The characters at least know where they are and have an inkling regarding their professions but the reader is totally in the dark for a long enough time to become frustrated.
However, things do clear up! The book is very well written although the development of character friendships tends to be a bit jerky and sudden even though emotion-based, particularly as regards secondary characters.
Although any summary of the plot would be a spoiler, I suspect that the biblical creation myth played a major role in defining the plot line.
All in all, the book is worth the read!

3.0 out of 5 stars Confused August 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book to start with. The mystery of who these people were and where they were was intriguing. But the timelines would jump to the point that I could not work out what part of the characters` history I was reading about until I had read a few sentences, sometimes a paragraph. I did not even finish it, giving up about two-thirds of the way through. The effort of puzzling out where they were in the story was not worth the effort. A shame as it was a very unique idea. Maybe someone with a more logical mind would enjoy it more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Someone To Watch Over Me March 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Brendan Mancilla's literary debut is a combines the gritty realism of an end of the world scenario, and the struggle to survive with some semblance of dignity and hope. Mr. Mancilla's power of description urge you to feel the physical and emotional pain of his characters as they face a world devoid of every comfort they ever knew. It's a great first effort, and I predict a great future for this new author.

More About the Author

Brendan Mancilla is a science-fiction and fantasy author who lives in San Diego, California. His debut novel, "Someone to Remember Me", is the result of a venture into the realm of self-publishing.

He earned his degree in English from San Diego State University where he read classic authors like Walt Whitman, Edgar Allen Poe, and William Blake alongside contemporary (and sometimes unknown) authors like Zade Smith, Flora Nwapa, and Jose Manuel Prieto.

Brendan has characterized his writing as an exercise in escapism. Of the worlds he writes about, he has remarked that he likes to "bend genre lines" while throwing in conflicting characters because it allows him to "pile on the dysfunction" to create a compelling story.

Someone to Remember Me, which is available for free on Kindle, iBooks, and Nook, was released for download in February 2012. It is periodically updated with corrections and new content. Learn more about Brendan Mancilla at www.bmancilla.com
