I loved Mary Fan's sci-fi books, so I was excited to see her branch out into fantasy. The world she has created in Tell Me My Name is unique, filled with trees that grow clocks, angel-like beings called ayri, and malevolent sorcerers, even though all we see of it is one icy cage. The for-now nameless main character strives to escape from her mysterious imprisonment---mysterious primarily because she cannot even remember her own name. Her captors---including a handsome apprentice who repeatedly risks punishment to be kind to her---hint that she has magical powers that she has no idea how to access. Her attempts to escape are hindered by her lack of memory. She doesn't know how good or bad or strong she is, or whether she has the ability or strength to bypass her binds. Full of vivid descriptions and heart-wrenching emotion, Tell Me My Name whets the appetite for further installments in the Fated Stars series.

I LOVED the title and cover of this book, and they both fit the story perfectly. Wow! I read this in one sitting. I love a good amnesia story, and Tell Me My Name does not disappoint! A girl wakes up in a prison of ice and iron, and there's not even a mirror on the wall to jar her memory of who she is. I really felt caught up with her emotions as she struggled to recover her memories in this face paced, captivating read.

I was offered this book in exchange for a fair an honest review. This is that review.

When I write reviews for indies and rate indie books, I always do so from the perspective of what I believe the author's target audience would feel about the book. I am not this book's target audience, and I do not think those who read my many horror reviews would enjoy this book, unless they also read fantasy of the more magical and mystical kind.

My tastes are actually quite broad, so I did enjoy reading this story. This is mostly due to the quality of Mary Fan's writing - descriptive and poetic at times, language that fits the enchantment, setting, and characters of the work. I was drawn into the story by the quality of the author's word choice and the emotional sensibility behind it.

The story is a quick read that largely takes place in a single setting, with a strong female lead and a smart villain. I would recommend this story to YA and adult fantasy readers. 4.5 stars

I received a pre-release copy of Tell Me My Name and I'm happy to report that it was every bit the treat I was hoping for.

The story opens with a girl who wakes up in a cold dungeon with no idea of who she is or how she got there. The tension soon rises as she struggles to understand her situation and cope with the sinister forces that are working against her.

Despite being set largely in a one-room cell, Mary does an excellent job of introducing us to a rich and lavish world that is truly clever and unique. The bad guy is particularly creepy and the ending will surely leave you wanting more. A solid work and a great read.

Tell Me My Name is an introduction into Mary Fan’s new fantasy series, Fated Stars, with the first book, Windborn, due in 2015.

A girl wakes up in an icy cell without knowing who she is and why she is there. A group of magicians visit her, accompanied by an apprentice who is the only one who seems to care about how the girl feels.

Whenever she tries to remember anything, searing pain shoots through her, but she keeps trying nevertheless as she is sure remembering some facts about her past may help her get out of the cell.

Tell Me My Name was a short but an enjoyable read, with a highly inventive ending. I’ve read all of Mary Fan’s books and this one was as great as the others. I look forward to reading more books by this talented author.

Can we just talk about the cover for a tad, please? It's severely gorgeous. However, as gorgeous as it is, it's pretty deceiving. Tell Me My Name is not kidding around. It's dark and it's full of pain and hurt and precariousness. After all, what can you be sure of if you don't even know who you are? I liked the way the protagonist's feelings were portrayed as she journeyed from utter ignorance to discovering who she is. It felt very real and plausible. It was interesting to find out about this fantasy world - which even in this 52 pages seemed very layered - alongside with her as she was trying to regain her lost memories of it. What I was not fond of was her voice. She sounded conceited whatsoever and even when she realized how old she was she talked about her peer in age as if he was below her. All in all, I will pick up the first book, Windborn when it releases because the fantasy word gripped my attention and I hope I'll warm up to the protag eventually.

I loved this small gem of a novella, which draws on myths and situations that are eternal in the human condition to bring us the tale of a brave, vulnerable young girl who has been stripped of everything, even her identity, and thrown in an icy cell to be tormented by a powerful magician. Her struggle to survive and recover her memory kept me riveted.

This is the complete review as it appears <a href="http://ianwoodnovellum.blogspot.com/2014/11/tell-me-my-name-by-mary-fan.html">at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV</a>. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here. Graphic and children's reviews on the blog typically feature two or three images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.

Note that I don't really do stars. To me a book is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate it three-fifths worth reading! The only reason I've relented and started putting stars up there is to credit the good ones, which were being unfairly uncredited. So, all you'll ever see from me is a five-star or a one-star (since no stars isn't a rating, unfortunately).

I rated this book WORTHY!

WARNING! MAY CONTAIN UNHIDDEN SPOILERS! PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Tell Me My Name sounds like it ought to be a really original title, but there are several similar titles on B&N, so be sure you pick the right one!

This novella starts out in a really intriguing fashion. A young girl - wonderfully not a trope or cliché girl, but a rather skinny, flat-chested young woman, dressed in a rather skimpy and thin dress which is tied behind her neck and which barely covers her front and not very much of her back, awakes to find herself trapped in a cell of ice walls within which metal bars are buried. There's a tiny window and no door, and she cannot even chip the ice, let alone melt it.
