Well, since I'm the author of this book, I do feel a little silly leaving a review, but I can tell you this, fans of CATALYST will not be disappointed! Questions will be answered, more questions will be raised, and there will be more action, more adventure, more romance, and more deception. Hope you love it! <3

I've often found that sequels in a story can tend to disappoint. What you loved in the first book isn't quite there, or the author takes the story in a completely different direction than you were anticipating. But I'm happy to report that isn't the case at all with Forgotten! If anything, I liked this book even more than the first one. While we start out with the familiar setting from Cataylst, it isn't long before we get to visit Rubex, a fancy metropolis next to the ocean. There's action, twi ...more

Mind. Blown.


I honestly did not know how everything would play out after the cliffhanger ending of CATALYST, the first book in this series. At the start of FORGOTTEN I was drawn right back into Sienna Preston's world and felt just like I was meeting up with old friends. The heart pounding plot twists and turns rival that of any roller coaster and I DID NOT WANT IT TO STOP. This book is the best kind of adrenaline rush. Both Zane and Trey are deliciously swoonworthy, and it takes a special kind of

I skimmed through the first book and the ending had me wanting to read the second book. I kinda regret it now.

Well, although I enjoyed the action and storyline the love triangle was stupid. Sienna was a great character but she was definitely not a one women man nor smart in the romance department which had me wanting to slap the girl senseless. One moment she loved this guy another moment she loved that guy just dumb. And to be mad at one guy when his actions weren’t his and then flip the switch

I was excited to dive back into the world of Sienna and the game of lies she's been thrown into. In this second installment from Kristin Smith, we learn that no one is safe from the reach of the Capitol. People are having their memories altered. I was kept guessing through the whole book and nearly bit all my finger nails off wondering who was going to regain their memories.


I loved this book and am excited to read what happens next.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

I didn't realize until I was partway through that this was the second book in a series. But even without having read book 1, I was able to keep up. This is a dystopian YA love triangle, and it's not my favorite handling of the trope. But it was good enough to finish. There was an interesting part about memory wipes and some twists about who did what.

One thing that was a little off-putting was the switching POV. Although the chapter beginning stated whose POV it was, the voices weren't differenti

Forgotten continues the story of Sienna Preston, a brave teenager who is determined to get to the truth behind a genetic engineering experiment. She has the help of a guy named Zane, who is the right amount "hunky" to make teen girls crush on him. Problem? She still has feelings for Trey. This has everything fans of dystopian YA love: suspense, action, plenty of twists and turns, and a love triangle!
