4 1/2 of 5 Stars Stacey Nash creates another great book in the Collective Series, Book 2, Remember Me. Anamae Gilbert and friends are training to continue their fight against the Collective. Mae and Jax were captured by the Collective. Their memories were stolen, and they were programed into thinking they are part of the Collective. I really dislike the Collective. They are the epitome of evil. I love Mae’s character. She is strong and smart. The characters are well-developed and believable. Stacy Nash is an exceptional writer. Her work is extremely descriptive. Remember Me was well-written and full of surprises. There were times I could not believe what was happening. I would love to see this turned into a television series. I cannot wait for book three. Complimentary copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
You'll see from reading the blurb that Anamae loses her memory and wakes up somewhere strange. I initially assumed she'd just forgotten all of her resistence friends (with amnesia they would be strange to her), so I was intrigued to discover she'd been taken by the Collective. This meant we got to see their world through a stranger's eyes -- in Forget Me Not they were a faceless, well, collective, but in Remember Me we see that it's not all black and white after all. There are factions and an interesting, Illuminati-style creation myth. The other thing we get in the sequel is a dual point of view, split between Anamae and her best friend, Will -- who is still with the resistence fighters. He goes a little crazy at the start of Remember Me after Anamae is taken. In the same way that she rushed into danger to try and save her dad in the first book, he doesn't exactly think through his actions in trying to save Mae. To give him credit, though, he does realise after a while that he's behaving rashly, and since he loves Mae I forgave him. My other favourite character in this book is Lilly, daughter of the resistance leader. I love how determined she was not to be over-protected by her father. I think when Mae breaks Will's heart (which I'm just assuming is going to happen because she's still all googly-eyed for Jax), Lilly would look after it and nurse it back to health. Yes, I'm planning the futures of these characters. I love this book!
