Editorial Reviews


In The Persistence of Memory Book 3: The Beginning of Always, Karen Janowsky delivers an unforgettable conclusion to what has been a tumultuous and entertaining series. As with the other books in this series, the wild pace of the writing grabs your attention and refuses to let go...Janowsky has shown herself once again to be an ambitious voice, touching on a huge range of subject matter in the Persistence of Memory series, and ensuring that readers are fully invested in the fate of this imagined world to the very last page. --Self Publishing Review

Janowsky has this ability to create a gripping narrative which is rich with details and shines with romantic intrigue. Classic themes of love and sacrifice add emotional vigour to the theme...Janowsky paints a convincing portrait of the misfit superpowers, who with their human afflictions struggle to attain order in a world full of chaos...Fans of romance will love the couple's sensual journey of discovery, which is erotic without being crass. --Prairies Book Review

Janowsky has pitched the perfect ending. A superb series and a must-read for fans of Superhero Fantasy Fiction The Beginning of Always is unreservedly recommended. --BookViral

I found this book to be a satisfying conclusion to the series. Much of the action is replaced by deep, human conversations about devotion versus respect, to honor versus obey, romantic versus unrequited love, and cultural religion versus spiritual religion. Pretty deep themes for a story about superheroes, but Janowsky crafts very realistic characters despite their sensational situations, giving them humanity and depth that keeps you rooting for them until the final pages...If you enjoyed the first two books in the series, I highly recommend finishing what you started. --LitPick

Author Karen Janowsky has always featured fantastic moments of drama and intense personal connection in the Persistence of Memory series, but none more so thrilling than this final installment. The heat is turned up to the max as Daniel and Nina cling to one another for survival, their taut romance giving way to moments of absolute darkness and devastation. The paranormal and superhero/villain elements are fully in play when the central danger plot takes over, accompanied by graphic and visceral description quite unlike anything readers have seen before. This results in a heart-in-mouth reading sensation that takes the intensity of previous books up to eleven, whilst also maintaining the character integrity of the developmental stories and putting them to their absolute limits. All in all, The Persistence of Memory: The Beginning of Always is a superb series conclusion not to be missed. --Readers Favorite Reviewer

Star Rating: 5 / 5: The end of a trilogy is always something beautiful and bittersweet. Over the course of three books, readers have gotten to know and love a set of characters, have been enthralled by storylines, and have gasped over twists and turns in the plot. The Persistence of Memory trilogy is no exception. I'm grateful to have had the chance to review all three books and to have a front seat view of just how exciting superhero romance (a subgenre I hope to see more of) can be...[One of] my favorite things about the series is the balance. The author doesn't just make sure equal weight is given to the plots. She makes sure equal weight is given to the tones as well...Hopefully someday we'll see a sequel series about another member of WISE. --Reviewed by Jo Niederhoff, Manhattan Book Review
