Based on the Platonic theory, Reminiscence is a romantic and modern retelling - with an unique and urban fantasy twist - on the classic tale of "Beauty and the Beast." I enjoyed the meta element with Nora reflecting on her favorite fairytale, "Beauty and the Beast," comparing it with her own situation. The past plays a huge role, coming back to haunt them as Nora remembers a past not her own, and Darcy is literally from another time. The more Nora learns about the past, the more she's able to address her present, as well as the future. I love how all these little clues come together by the end in a very unique take on good versus evil, light and dark. The characters are charming and compelling, both fitting in as fairytale archetypes, and turning away from the usual stereotypes. Amy Marie weaves romance, humor, destiny, and history into a delightful story perfect for fairytale lovers!" - Reviewed By Liz Konkel for Readers' Favorite
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Reminiscence: a thoughtful novel with references to all kinds of secret ancient lost wisdom, yet doesn't cloy with philosophy or metaphysics. It is a heroine finding her balance, not to mention finding an ancient young love who kisses her hand. Which is not a plot that gets old no matter the number of incarnations." - Amazon Customer
From the Author
I'm a first-time author developing a new fiction/fantasy saga. I've lived all over the United States, but Ohio will always be my home. I'm a huge fan of all fiction, and am always looking to get lost in the relaxing escape of a good novel. I've worked several years for a major book retailer, and now enjoy a career in aviation as an air traffic controller. I'm a sucker for an old-fashioned good versus evil story, and the cuddles of my dog Brutus.
