If it does it was very minimal. As for your other question: I don't know if you've read the first book (this is a sequel), but...kissing. One scene at night where Sera and Zen are sleeping together. This is in the 1600s where they are now living. (Not a spoiler, that's in the first few chapters of the book.) Zen alludes to sexual stuff that night and promises to "show her later," but nothing further happens in regards to that comment.

Hope this helps :) Exactly the kinds of questions I want to know, too.(less)

"The eternal knot.
It’s an ancient Sanskrit symbol that,according to Zen, represents the flowing of time and movement within all that is eternal.
To me it represents Zen."

It appears that this series is getting better and better.And just like Project Paper Doll,the second book in the series doesn't suffer the middle book syndrome-it's actually waaaay better than the first one.I kinda knew that things wouldn't work out (view spoiler),but I didn't know that it would be

I dont know if you are allowed to curse on this website or in a review but I am just going to use the word duck to substitute that very strong meaningful word that i assume everyone should know.
WHAT THE DUCK? Like honestly. Okay first let me say that I loved Unremembered so much, like seriously it's one of my favorite books of all time. It was just so action-packed and filled with romance, who could not find it to be thrilling and just incredible? I get to this book and the beginning I am feeli

Since the hardcover of this book is so expensive and the book is so small, I'm waiting to get it at the library. I'll share my thoughts once I get the chance to read it. My pre-read review is below.

I am so excited for this one. I really hope we get to see more of Cody, I liked him alot. I also hope that we find out some more about Sera's past. I'm sure we will.

I'm a bit iffy with the title, but I can tolerate it. The first one seems to have a lot of hate, and I guess I understand why some peopl
3.5 stars

Unforgotten is the second book in Jessica Brody's Unremembered trilogy and picks up a couple of months after the ending of the first book. Seraphina and Zen have fled back to 1609 to escape the Diotech scientists and if they can just keep their heads down there is no way they can ever be traced. Unfortunately while Zen has settled in quite quickly Seraphina is struggling and the villagers look at her with suspicion in their eyes. When Zen becomes ill and an accident causes Seraphina to
Well, I'm glad we got that whole amnesia thing out of the way.

This second book in the Unremembered series starts off with a bang. We're in 1609 with Sera accused as a witch and being burned at the stake - and this after some disturbing dreams. The dreams thread through the book and become the basic line to follow in terms of the plot. This is nice because while they are at first undecipherable, they're a hint. And when they unfold into scenes that actually happen, the device works beautifully.

Life in 1609 wasn’t so bad, until Zen was struck by a sudden illness and Seraphina was accused of witchcraft. Barely escaping with her life, Sera finds herself in 2032. Her rescuer? A man just like her – a creation of the power-greedy Diotech. Only he’s better than her. With Zen’s life slowly slipping way, Sera must work to find a way to save the life of the boy she loves. The problem? If she wants Zen to live, she’ll have to work with her enemy. Diotech.

Much better than unremembered. Yet I am still disappointed that the author doesn't dive into her science fiction world more.

Time travel in a whole different level; one moment you're in the year 2013, then 1609, then 2032. 2115 is a time where science as succeeded in fully understand genes and DNA, where people can genetically manipulate others and where man can create human.

But alas, the author's story is about true love, blah blah blah. It's a good book, with moments where you wish more books

Why did there have to be a love triangle? GAH!
That cliffhanger ending OMG. How people waited for the next book I don’t know. I felt that the love triangle and the romance in general was pretty underdeveloped and the plot twist with Kaelen I called pretty early on. Sera also seemed a bit stupid at times, but I got over that eventually. The second half definitely elevated it to a 4 star from a 3; I wasn’t connecting to the characters initially but I got really into it in the second half. Also, why do books about worldwide diseases follow me r ...more

So I was kind of meh about Unremembered, the first book in this series, when I read it last year. I liked it but didn't love it, but I was intrigued enough to want to continue with the series. If it's been a while since you read Unremembered, the book does a fairly good job at throwing in reminders about what happened previously, although it would never hurt to at least skim the previous book before moving on to this one.

I ended up enjoying Unforgotten way more than the previous book. I'm guessi

UNFORGOTTEN was a fast-paced, intriguing middle book in a trilogy. Sera and Zen are on the run from the evil Diotech corporation which wants to recapture her. After all, they are the ones who created her and made her beautiful, fast, smart and able to travel through time. They have escaped to England in the year 1609. And, while Zen fits in, Sera is still learning what it means to be a human with freedom and choices. However, their idyllic respite is soon threatened when the wife of the man who ...more

First of all, I can’t believe how long it took me to get to this book, and then I didn’t even read the hardcover I won from Jessica Brody herself! I went for the audiobook instead, because I knew I’d be able to listen to that much sooner, and I’m glad I did. The narrator, Julia Whelan, is one of my favorites — so, total thumbs up to the audiobook version of Unforgotten!

Coming to this book so long after reading Unremembered wasn’t even a big deal. I was able to ease right back into the story (it

Fast paced and action packed. I loved that we got some serious answers and it wasn't a filler book like some second books in a trilogy are.

The ending is a killer. It's not exactly a cliffhanger, but it definitely makes me crazy that I have to wait over a year for the last book.

I didn't find this book to be near as interesting as the first book, but it did have its moments of making me curious as to what will happen next. I wouldn't call it a waste of my reading time it just could have used a little more suspense. Maybe book #3 will knock my socks off?

Rolling my eyes times thousand. I don't know why these love triangles always need to happen. It isn't interesting. It's annoying. It's a bad plot to fill up empty space.
Luckily I read the blurb beforehand so I didn't need to be extremely disappointed whilst reading it, but heck, it was so annoying. The MC became this lust-filled girl who basically wanted to rip apart anyone and everything as soon as she looked at her new love interest. Even though literally one line before that, she was telling

This one is better than the first in my opinion. The plot is just brilliant, however I still have some issues with the protagonist. She is supposed to have this higher intelligence, but she can sure make some less than smart decisions. Also, it bothers me how she jumps to the worst conclusions and spirals down with the gloom and doom when she doesn't even know for sure what the outcome is. I will say that this series keeps me reading and if not for the issues with the protagonist, I would rate i ...more

Characters, man! It's all about the characters for me! And Miss Jessica Brody didn't only reach my incredibly high standards for 'great characters', but even surpassed it! And that's a very hard thing to do. Because I'm picky. And negative. But whatever.

Since I finished reading Unremembered I have been desperate to read Unforgotten, I wanted it there and then but had the torturous wait of a whole twelve months before I got a copy of Unforgotten in my hands, and what a fantastic bookish day it was when I got the book through my door.

This was good, but there were a couple things that really aggravated me. While the memory scavenger hunt was interesting, that plotline felt kind of thrown in there. They had to follow these memory triggers, but I was sitting there wondering what all of that had to do with a cure. Sera wasn’t even questioning this quest they were on and it left me feeling like I’d missed something important. Eventually, it all made sense and all the pieces came together, but I just wish it hadn’t taken half of t ...more

SO. Im stuck between 3.5 and 4 stars. Obviously 3.5 (sadly) doesn't exist so 4 stars it is. I gotta tell you the first half of this book... Wasn't feeling it. 1609 was about as romantic as diarrhea. I mean just because your favorite poem was written by a guy who lives in a certain year doesn't mean you should live there. There's no correlation between them. The 17th century was laborious and unfair and disgusting. Why not the 20th century? I don't know. And 1609 Sera was pathetic and whiney. I w ...more

So, Zen and Sera have this epic love right??!?!?!? I mean, he travels back to 1609 to live with her. He basically worships the ground she walks on, always super kind and patient. But, he has the audacity to get "sick". And, it hits the fan.... even, though she really can't control it.

I predicted the cause of her attraction and gravitation to Kaelen. I hate it. Toward the end, I was glad for it's reciprocation. But, I still

“What does it feel like?"
"It feels like..." I begin hesitantly, "...falling from the sky."
As I suspected, confusion registers on Kaelen's face.
"Thrilling and terrifying at the same time," I add.
Kaelen ponders for a while. "Falling from the sky equals death."
I bite my lip to keep from laughing. "Only if there's a ground underneath you," I counter.
"There is."
I shrug. “But what if there wasn't? What if you simply fell forever? Never knowing if there was a ground beneath you or not."
"It's not possible," Kaelen rationalizes. "Unless you were falling in a vacuum."
I smile. "So maybe that's what love is. Falling in a vacuum.”
