All Miranda wants is a normal life. She's determined to move past the horrible truth of her origin as a clone so she can enjoy time with her boyfriend, Peter, and the rest of her friends at school. But Miranda quickly learns that there's no such thing as normal - not for a girl who was raised to be a weapon. When one of her teammates turns rogue, it begins a war that puts ...more

*Spoiler free for the series*

I'm feeling torn on this one. On one hand it was a highly entertaining read, very unique (as expected), and I definitely want to know what happens next, but it was such a different book from the first and I'm not sure how I feel about the direction it went in. Being different is not a bad thing - who wants a repeat of it predecessor? - but I feel like the increased sci-fi-esque of this whole plot became a little... too much for me, maybe?

I was a big fan of False Mem
Wendy Darling
3.5 stars This was not quite what I expected. The best way I can describe it now is that the first book, FALSE MEMORY, was like the awesome aerial battles and other tense action sequences in the Battlestar Galactica reboot. The second book is like the parts of BSG that focused more on overarching mythology that expands beyond scifi. It's an interesting direction for this series to take, though I'm not quite sure how I feel about it.

Some things I really liked about this, though, including an awe

Great book, though I wish the eARC had it's talking marks (quotation marks, but talking works better) for when they were talking, because some of it was mental and not verbal communication, so it was a bit hard to understand. Liked the first book better, because it was normal to the weird, and this was trying to be normal again to weirder, and while alternate universes are cool, it was harder to suspend reality. And yeah, I can't wait for the last book!!!! ...more

This was definitely better than its predecessor. It was nonstop action as Miranda has to figure out how to save the world from an invasion by the faceless ones. I might have even given it four stars except for the author's termination of Noah. I will also have to find the concluding tome. ...more

Not as enjoyable as the first one but still not too bad. Ready to see how the author ends this series.

This book did not live up to the first one in my opinion. I will likely read the third one to see how the series ends. However, I wasn’t really invested in these characters the second time around.

3.5/5 stars

After finishing False Memory, I couldn't wait to dive right in to False Sight! Krokos had me completely hooked on this idea of genetically altered teens, who were created to be used as weapons to control the masses. However, it goes much deeper than that. I couldn't wait to find out what happened next for Miranda and her friends. After making some shocking discoveries about their Creators and themselves, they begin this book looking to have some semblance of a normal life. However, Da

Have you ever watched Alien and its sequel, Aliens, back-to-back? I did that this past year, and it was jarring--in part because everything had to be escalated in the sequel. The stakes were raised across the board. In the first movie, Ripley risks her own life to save a cat; in the second one, it's a (really annoying) child. In Alien, one alien attacks a ship full of humans; Aliens pits an entire planet full of families and a team of space marines against overwhelming numbers of the creatures, ...more

This is the second book in the ‘False Memory’ series, and picks up a couple of months after the end of book 1 ‘False Memory’.

False hurt me deeply.

I read the first book simply as a means of getting my own creative juices flowing for a novel I wanted to write. I was enthralled. I finished False Memory in less than a day and eagerly waited for Monday to check out the next book at the library. Within three hours of reading False Sight, I had to stop. I just couldn't do it anymore.

*Spoilers beyond this point!*
I loved the first book; it had a sense of urgency and intrigue; I wanted to know Miranda's story. I wa
2.5 stars

I don't really have much to say. False Sight is confusing, frustrating, and and I say confusing?

It's just really hard to enjoy a book when you have no idea what's up with the world-building and why so-and-so is happening. Like the Black. What is that? How is that even possible?

What I do admire about Dan Krokos is that he's writing from a female POV. Sure, this is a dystopian-thrillerish sort of book, so it's not the same as writing from a female POV in let's say, the contemporary genre

All Miranda longs for is normal, which is something she will never have. In False Memory, the first book in the series, Miranda is a 17-year-old girl who awakens on a park bench with no idea how she got there, and goes on to discover that she is part of an, "elite-force of genetically altered teens who possess flawless combat skills and powers strong enough to destroy a city, " (Quote from book #1 synopsis). She has discovered what she is, but more than anything she would just love to forget tha ...more

Recommended to Wendy by: Sequel
"False Sight" the sequel to False Memory is a fast-paced science fiction thriller. In this story Miranda wants to move beyond the truth of her origin as a genetically altered clone, and enjoy some normalcy with her friends at school. But, what she soon discovers when one of her friends turns rogue is that she's far from being a typical teenager and that she may not only be instrumental in destroying her friends but also the world she loves.

In this sequel to last year’s adventure story of cloned teen super soldiers who lose their memories daily unless treated with a special memory-enhancing drug, and discover their true mission is not to save humanity but to destroy it using mass hysteria and paralyzing fear, the team of Roses are on the run and trying to blend in to high school life. That is, until one is triggered by a secret message that releases an alternate, violent personality on a mission to retrieve a powerful tool, the Tor ...more

I had no intention of reading this, but I got a ARC and thought I'd see if this series got any better. Nope. It's like the author decided to throw in every single sci-fi element and mix them all up. Plus the main character is still as flat as ever, the world-building is laughable (especially all the thing in caps like The Torch), and the twists are confusing instead of exciting. I won't be reading any more of his books. ...more

Oh sweet Jesus, and when i thought this series couldn't get more confusing and wth-ing. Spoilers from this point on!!!****** It sucks when you don't love a book or rave about one when the majority of people actually liked it. Oh well. c'est la vie. That is how it was with me in this series/book.
Miranda... clone miranda. Oh whatever, Miranda is dead. Yay series over, she sacrificed herself bla ba blaaaaaaaaaa. Boring. I wasn't full on in pain to see her go get blown up. It didn't effect me at all
Like a 4/4.5. The writing style is different. Sorta 2 dimensional in a way. Like flattish but it works and it makes sense for the main character to sorta think in that style. All in all this is a super fantastic sequel and it blew me and its predecessor out of the water! So action packed and fast paced. Really fun. The story kinda comes out of left field but it so right. The first book was very different than this one but it was really much more of an prologue of a book giving you the back story ...more

I was really excited to read this book but it felt different than the first one. As much as I really wanted to love this series, it feels like a connection to the reader is missing. I was a bit confusing with the plot and the twists in this book, so it was harder to get into it. Can’t wait for the conclusion!
