Sven Bridstrup (sven62) | 6 comments Audible pushed a book ad to me on FB. I liked the publisher's description but I cannot remember the name of the book!!

It might be a new book. It is about a spaceship carrying people (humanity?) on a very long voyage in stasis. There is a section of the ship that's close off from the passengers - supposed to be the automated control of the ship. Someone wakes up and they go in the prohibited section and find a dead body. I believe it said the dead person was not part of the passenger list or whatever.

What book is this???

Try Six Wakes

Jordan (justiceofkalr) | 395 comments Maybe Pitch Dark? It's got a ship with people in stasis heading out from a failing earth and there are other people on the ship who aren't supposed to be when the crew unexpectedly start waking up from stasis.

Sven Bridstrup (sven62) | 6 comments Yup, I looked at Six Wakes.... not it. Not Pitch Dark either.

Thanks for trying!!

Cheryl  (cherylllr) | 2287 comments Could it be YA? There's one from a few years ago I could try to dig up if you think it's possible. Told from the girl's POV or alternately, iirc.

Sarah | 2611 comments Is it The Man in the Tree by Sage Walker? Some of it doesn’t sound like it fits but it’s the closest I’ve seen.

This sounds VERY familiar, but I can't think of a name. Not either of the ones mentioned, either. Now it's bothering me because I think I might have read it, or at least started to read it. It might have been a y/a novel, but I didn't find it under the first of my scifi shelves I looked in, which means nothing since I don't shelve every book I read.

Sven Bridstrup (sven62) | 6 comments Thanks for the energy! Still looking for this title. I don't think it is YA. I don't get ads for ya. I think it's a new book.

Sarah | 2611 comments Have you tried clicking around on Facebook or amazon or audible and seeing what comes up in your ads/suggestions? I feel like if I see an ad once from them I see it a hundred times.

This sounds terribly familiar to me also but I’ve scoured my TBR and can’t find anything.

Sven Bridstrup (sven62) | 6 comments Sarah, HA! ... I was actually using that tactic. Guess what?
FOUND IT!! It just came back up in my feed.

The book is Forgotten: The Forgotten Series, Book 1, by M.R.Forbes

Thanks everyone!

Sarah | 2611 comments Haha! Who knew ads were useful for something? Lol. I think I’ll add this too, sounds intriguing, so thanks for the update!

Let's hope the first line of the blurb isn't an omen! :D

Forgotten
