Rating: 4/5

In this second book of the False Memory series, Miranda North and her friends, Peter, Noah, Sequel, and Rhys are in for an adventure that readers will enjoy tremendously.

After waking up on a park bench, Miranda had no memories of her past. But she soon realizes that her old life was anything but normal. With this new knowledge, Miranda’s world takes a definite turn for the strange when she realizes she has a unique power and is a clone.

Now Miranda just wants to fit in. Be a normal girl, and forget about her strange life. But how is that possible when there is a chance the people who created her, will attack? Yet, Miranda along with her friends, are willing to try. Things seem to be going well, but when one of her friends turns rogue, Miranda is faced with a problem that she never could have imagined.

My favorite character in this book would be Miranda. She’s brave, loyal and overall a very interesting character to read about. When things start to look difficult, Miranda never backs down and pursues what she believes in, a quality that is admirable. When her friend turns traitor and disappears, Miranda is on her tail, constantly trying to figure out what happened to her. And when the fate of the world rests in her hands, this heroine is never hesitant to act.

I believe that this story was more interesting than False Memory, its predecessor. Krokos fills False Sight with much more adventure, action, twists and turns compared to False Memory. As the story progresses you think you know what is going to happen, but the whole story changes with one simple turn of events.

For False Memory, I felt that the action sequences were not needed, but I felt the complete opposite for this book. With the new, surprising enemy, all action sequences were detailed and to the point, giving the readers more information of what the characters were going through. But, I have to say I loved and hated the ending. Full of action, suspense, and nail-biting decision it’s a conclusion that readers will never be able to forget, False Sight was finished with skill and precision that left me itching for a possible third book.

The only thing that I didn’t like about this book was how long it was. Honestly, the story could have bee 20-25 pages shorter and still carried the same details and emotions. The fact that it was stretched out, totally dragged out the middle part of the book, and I was left waiting for the conclusion to hurry along.

Overall, I really liked this book. I don’t reread books often, but this is one that I definitely will. Read False Sight by Dan Krokos and join Miranda North and her friends on an amazing journey to fight for what is right. If you love sci-fi books, this is definitely one you will like to pick up. I recommend reading the False Memory before False Sight to get a good understanding of the characters and previous action.
