Review

"A fantastic blend of heart, action, and suspense." - Anna Howard

"Foreign Identity was amazing! I fell in love with the characters right away. The plot was suspenseful and intense, but had a love story, which is perfect for a romantic like me." - Christina Krieger

"I just couldn't put it down!" - Angie Richmond

About the Author

An avid lover of stories that tiptoe the line between fantasy and reality, Becca J. Campbell looks for new angles on bridging the gap between the two. She holds a special place in her heart for any story involving superpowers or time travel. Her passion is defying the limits of her own creativity.

Becca's journey into writing began as many of her other creative endeavors do--by daring herself to try something new. The question "What if I wrote a novel?" and some hastily scribbled notes on a church handout were the inspirations that jumpstarted her first book. Since then, she has written half a dozen other novels and several shorter works.

You can find her at BeccaJCampbell.com.

Format: Paperback
Allan Douglas Foreign Identity, by Becca J. Campbell is quite probably the strangest alien abduction story I have read: "strangest" as in unique and imaginative. It is also a genre-melding story that brings together elements of romance, fantasy, mystery and Sci-Fi.

A note on the romance angle: I tend to avoid modern romance novels because so many of them are a cape of pornography hung on a wireframe of plot. The primary thrust of the story (pun intended) is graphically described sex. Foreign Identity is not one of those.

The story begins with a man and a woman chained to opposite ends of a strange room. They awaken to discover that they have no memory of who they are, where they are, or how they got there. The room is a puzzle, a puzzle they must work together to solve. But it is also just the first step in a long series of challenges that are before them as they get to know one another and try to discover who they are, what is happening to them and how to get back "home".

The story - which I can't say much about without spoiling it for you - is imaginative and well written. Ms. Campbell is a good story teller. The pace steps right along and keeps you turning the pages. Even the Kindle version is formatted well: there are scene changes within each chapter where the point of view changes and is indicated by using a line of white space. In most Kindle books I've read this technique fails because the conversion strips out the added white space. Not this one; here it works. Kudos to Consortium Books for getting that right.

Character development is slow, we don't really get to know them until the end of the book, but that is natural when the main characters have no (or very little) background to draw upon for backstory.

Foreign Identity is a novel by Becca J. Campbell. I read it a couple days ago. I enjoyed it. I picked it up partly because I like sci-fi, but mostly because I have gotten to know the author a bit (she lives less than 5 minutes from me - yet we've only met online!) and I think she's pretty cool. I purchased the book on sale for my Kindle and finished it in a day. That is not necessarily unusual for me, but I would assume most people would want to finish it quickly to find out what happens. :)

The book starts with a man and a woman who wake up in a room, chained to the walls, with no memory at all. By working together, they uncover a puzzle that frees them from the room, but only releases them into a maze with more puzzles. Throughout the story they seek to escape and to find help with a desire to find home - even though they don't know where that is. They have to, somehow, work together and trust each other in order to be free.

The Breakdown:

I loved how she worked the amnesia. I've seen it used several times as a way to drive the plot, and that really bugs me. Becca, however, totally wiped their personal memories and left them that way. There's never a 'Oh! I remember that!' moment at a critical time to push the plot forward. That said, she has her characters have feelings or instincts for certain things - which they cleverly don't know if they should trust - which add depth to the character, both in what they remember and what they don't as well as how they react to it. Very fun!

The characters. I really liked them. They were believable and consistent. I enjoyed getting to know them even as they got to know themselves. And after the little bit of the past we learn about their lives, they are even more relatable and understandable.

What would you do if you awoke in chains and there was a strange man linked to you? You had no memory of who you were, how you got there, and who you were chained to? The man headed for the door in the room and almost pulled her down as the chain was too short. Once they worked as a team to find the keys that would released them out of thousands that were in the cubbiehole, they took the names on the keys, and called themselves by the names on the keys asit fit more than anything else. But where were they, and who erased their memories?????????

Rebecca Campbell spins a totally bizarre yet intriguing story that captures readers from the very first page and has a shocking ending that you just have to read!!

I read this book in twenty four hours because I simply had to discover the answers to all of the questions posed at the beginning. Without spoiling anything, I have to say that the twist was very interesting and I loved the ending! I don't think I've ever read a book with this kind of twist.

Foreign Identity is a book that grew on me as I read it. I was intrigued in the very beginning by the hook: two strangers are thrown together in a strange labyrinth of rooms, and their only hope of escape depends on their figuring out clues related to their identity and to the identity of their captors. My interest sagged just a bit when I quickly guessed one major plot line. Also, the writing in the beginning of the book, as one reviewer commented, was mostly well done, but a little repetitive. I thought there were places where the author would have done well not to drive each conclusion of a character's thought home quite so neatly.

In further reading, I discovered that it didn't matter that I had so immediately figured out a pivotal element of the story. The beauty of the book is in the two main characters and their developing relationship, as well as in the way their respective understanding of their situation builds. I think we are meant to be a step ahead of them in figuring out certain things, for that adds poignancy to our desire for them to understand. Also, there are many elements of mystery in the story, so knowing one of them doesn't dim the suspense created by the other puzzles. There are some predictable moments, but there is also much that is unique and creative about the work, as well.

Kudos to Ms. Campbell for creating a science fiction story with attention to both character development and plot. Kudos to her, too, for writing science fiction with a wholesome romantic theme. Since the two main characters carry the weight of the book, Foreign Identity is somewhat like "Moon" in that regard. The stark setting forces the characters to dig into the puzzle of who they are internally.

I have already read one short story by Ms. Campbell, and I certainly look forward to reading more of her work.

Please note that I was given an electronic review copy of Foreign Identity in exchange for an unbiased review.(less)
