Synopsis: Memories will make you.

Natalie isn’t dead, but her past is. With Protocol 00 finally having been shut down, the free will of the country was received at the price of the memories of Natalie. After being found trespassing in Area 51 she is taken as prisoner where her mind is wiped and life meets its impending doom. However, just before she is about to be executed she is broken out of Area 51 by the White Knights, where she is thrust into a war-torn land with the expectation that she will lead the overthrow of President Ash’s regime once and for all.

But although Natalie wants to help end all the destruction she feels she has caused, she wants to get her memories and past back more than anything. Surrounded by lies and manipulation, Natalie quickly realizes that no one seems to care or have answers about her past. And with the government still out to kill her, the real struggle becomes, not if she will get her memories back, but if she will live to make more.

The Review:

Delusional was intense, thought provoking, and driven. Full of action, self discovery, and horror, this one was an adrenaline ride. It was fast paced, emotional, and surprising!

It was a continuation of an intense fight for survival amidst a terrifying war and rebellion. It was a story about self doubt, guilt, depression, and love. It was unpredictable and compelling.

I definitely enjoyed this one better than book 1. I felt like I was right in the middle of things with Natalie, and it was terrifying. I enjoyed getting to know her character better, and found it intriguing that she went on a second journey of self discovery that allowed for reminiscing from the first book as a refresher.

The writing seemed to improve a little from Control Freakz. I was still impressed that this young author managed to capture my attention, and kept me glued to the book long enough to finish it in one sitting! There was still room for improvement as far as tenses went and not trying to be so descriptive at times, but the heart of the story was there, and the excitement and story twists kept me reading until the heart wrenching cliff hanger!

I enjoyed how intense and refreshing this one was. It reminded me a little of The Hunger Games and Divergent, but it also felt unique and exciting. I felt like the story continued at a nice pace, and I was left craving the next book!
