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

I wanted to know more about Daniel and Nina, I wanted to watch them succeed and make them happy as the author promised in the title. The drama, the mystery of the villain, the fight against evil, and the relationship between the two protagonists were simply amazing. The author handled the love scenes tastefully, the characters have been given ample time to grow and the plot has been handled with the utmost care. I was sitting on the edge of my seat, waiting for Daniel and Nina to win, to find a happy ending.
After reading the first two, I can't wait to read this novel again. Pretty deep themes for a story about superheroes, but in spite of their sensational situations, Janowsky crafts very realistic characters, giving them humanity and depth that keeps you rooted for them until the final pages.
-And I particularly liked how the villain was portrayed.
I’m the kind of reader who prefers satisfying, profound dialogue about the human condition to a pure action driven plot, but in this novel I have it all …depth, action, suspense and romance.
Without giving away any spoilers, I will say that the villain in this series (and especially as they reveal themselves in Book Three) is as tragic, complex, and unorthodox as any villain I’ve ever come across in literature. The backstory and character arcs of all the major players are skillfully conceived and executed with flair and freshness. For those of us who delight in deep and complex characters, this book (and series) was a delight to read.
Let me address an elephant in the room: There is sex in this book. A lot. For those who are anti-sex, you may find yourself skipping quite a bit. There’s plenty of action, fight scenes, drama, humor and so forth, too. But yeah, there’s a heaping helping of very hot, usually explicit, and gorgeously (albeit unabashedly) described scenes of sensual and carnal delights. Fortunately, it’s part of the story, part of the characters’ nature and personalities (as it is for all of us), and not a bit of it is gratuitous or cynical. Rather, it’s a joyous affirmation of life itself, and gives to the story a sparkling joie de vivre that’s infectious and much needed in times such as these.
In her debut trilogy as a novelist, author Karen Janowsky has taken a huge risk. All innovation and fresh, ground-breaking creativity is always about taking risks. Creating an entirely new genre that weaves elements of romance, action-adventure, super-heroes, science fiction and fantasy, with attention to deep character development takes guts and, to pull it off, takes talent and knowledge of craft as well, not just courage. Ms. Janowsky’s triumph in pulling it off will open doors to other authors, and will no doubt earn her a well-deserved following of devoted readers.
