Book Review: Erased by Liz Strange

by Liz Strange

ebook, First, 226 pages
Published June 15th 2014
Dark Continents Publishing
Grey Singer doesn’t know who she is or what she’s done. All she knows is that the InterStellar Collective wants her dead. Her memories are muddled, she has no money, and no one to watch her back except a much younger bartender who claims to be her boyfriend. According to him, she’s been erased.

But how can she trust him to help her get through this when she can’t even trust her own mind? While caught in the middle of warring factions her very life, and the lives of countless others, might depend on the answers.

Erased follows the journey of Grey Singer. She has been an elite officer of the Collective and worked very hard to attain her position when one day she awakens in a familiar, yet unknown, place and on a planet with no memory of how she got there or what transpired to bring about these events. We then follow her on her journey to find out exactly what happened that resulted in her being erased.

The world building is very well done and unfolds as Grey seeks out the truth of what is going on. There are a host of intriguing characters and even a little love interest thrown in the mix. Grey's journey is a race from beginning to end with some great battles, feats of escape, surprises, and some really fun gadgets.

The story is complete with a very satisfying ending and was a unique read for me that played out like an action film in my mind at times keeping me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was going to be revealed next. I will admit to not always liking Grey, but hey her brain has been erased so there is a learning curve with her likability here and by the end I was on her team.

I would recommend this book to those who enjoy reading action with a bit of mystery and a syfy bent. I received this book with a request for my honest review without any compensation whatsoever, other than the joy of reading a new book.

  1. This cover made me think WW II. Not sure this is a book for me, I don't really like memory loss stories. But thank you for the review.

  2. Sounds interesting and I like the authors name and bio.
