Book Review: The Adventures of Sarah Ann Lewis and the Memory Thieves

About the Book:

What Sarah doesn’t know…

…could doom us all.

It’s 1988 in the middle of nowhere, Texas, and 13-year-old Sarah is about to be swept out of her boring life and into a world of danger.

Spies are coming for her. The people next door are not what they seem. And Sarah’s family has been hiding something. Something BIG. Something not even Sarah knows.

The fate of the world hangs in the balance. But for Sarah, all that matters is rescuing her family. What’s left of it, anyway.

If she fails, the Memory Thieves will learn their secrets, and as a result, millions around the world will die. But to save the people she loves, Sarah will have to team up with strangers she isn’t sure she can trust. Strangers who aren’t even human.

This story is not what you think.

A captivating blend of rural sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, and thriller, the first book of this genre smashing series will have you begging for more.

My Thoughts:

I was captivated from the very first page. This middle grade science fiction, fantasy, mystery was very engaging and creative.

For fans of N.D. Wilson and the Chronicles of Narnia, The Adventures of Sarah Ann Lewis had all the elements of a great story. There was a mystery to be solved, danger to be avoided (the very real type that includes fighting for survival and even death, but isn’t overly graphic in its description), friendships to be made, trust to be reinforced (or betrayed), intrigue, adventure, talking animals and other-worldly creatures.

From a Texas school room to a basement in Berlin, the story never lags. My only complaint is that the next book in the series hasn’t been released yet.

I received a free digital pre-release copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. An honestly I really enjoyed it.
