Momento Mori is wonderfully descriptive. It transports you back in time but through the eyes of many different characters. A female Assassin, who is extraordinarily good at her job, thieves, henchmen who love t..." Read more of this review »

Memento Mori by Katy O'Dowd
"Memento Mori is a tale of revenge, and like all such stories as a bleakness to it. It has overtones of Joe Abercrombie’s “Best Served Cold” - but we are at least spared another repeat of that overused ‘Klingon Proverb’ quote.

Delicious Distraction!

Let's get this straight first off - you don't have to be a sports fan to read and enjoy this book, but I found it refreshing to read something set in a world that I know nothing about. A romance is a romance, right?
