Review of, Sea of Forgetfulness, by Lanie Mores
I’m so glad to see the sun shining this morning. Last night we had a tornado warning, (third one for this year), but fortunately all we had here was rain. Those a few miles north of us were not so fortunate, as there was extensive damage to trees and a few homes. As yet, there are no reports of casualties, so let’s hope it stays that way.
Today I want to share my review of, “Sea of Forgetfulness,” by award-winning author, Lanie Mores.
What Amazon says:
Angelika Juris unexpectedly becomes legal guardian to her sister’s rejected child, Dani… a child with the potential to develop supernatural abilities.
After witnessing a horrific event, Dani develops mental health issues, but is able to overcome her inner turmoil through treatment and her parents’ love. Their lives fall into a comfortable routine filled with dance classes, sleepovers, and video game marathons.
Until the accident.
At the age of thirteen, Dani is involved in a tragic highway disaster, and as a result of her injuries, her powers manifest. Afraid to tell her parents about her newfound abilities, and even more afraid of harming, them, Dani is lured away to find her estranged mutant brothers, seeking answers about her origins and how to control her new power.
Guided by an amulet and map—a gift sent from her brother, Tomas Scholz—Dani embarks on an adventure where she meets a young boy, Jonathan. He is lost, with no memories of his identity, his family, or his home. With nowhere else to turn, Jonathan joins Dani on her quest, and together they battle pirates, the undead, and finally, her evil family—a family that is a far cry from what she expected.
Will Dani deny her destiny and resist the evil plans of her siblings, or will she succumb to her role in fulfilling the prophecy—being the path and the key—that ends in the fall of mankind?
Is Dani dangerous? Her adopted parents, Angelika and Anthony, along with Dani herself, want to know.
Sea of Forgetfulness is a continuation of a thrilling science fiction/supernatural thriller series that stung my eyes because I refused to pull them away from my kindle.
I found this entire series to be captivatingly multi-faceted and even interdimensional. As this story moved briskly along, excellent plot crafting had me questioning my previous assumptions until the revelation at the end.
Personally, I enjoy a good mystery, especially when it contains elements of the supernatural.
By the conclusion Dani had gained maturity and newfound wisdom, transforming from a surly teenager to a philanthropist whose eyes were opened to the fallacy of her previous perceptions.
I highly recommend this book (series) to anyone who has ever contemplated the existence of more.
