Book Review: Remembrance by Michelle Madow




 
Genre: Young Adult (Fantasy/Paranormal Romance)
Published: July 25, 2011
Publisher: Dreamscape Publishing

The Blurb: 
Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from Regency Era, England ... but she doesn't know it yet.

Then Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie's high school at the beginning of the year, and she feels a connection to him, almost like she knows him. She can't stop thinking about him, but whenever she tries talking with him about the mysteries behind her feelings, he makes it clear that he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching him is even more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has started to become full of himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his arrival. So why can't she get him out of her mind?

Even though Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, fighting fate isn't going to be easy.

My Review:
Remembrance is the first book in the Transcend Time Saga by Michelle Madow. This story effortlessly sweeps you away from reality. I enjoy a good escape from the real world when I read, and this book definitely accomplished that. The emotions are intense. There is a lot of hot and cold, especially from Drew. It reminded me of Twilight in the beginning for that reason, but that didn't bother me, nor do I feel like it hurt the story in any way. There is one thing that irks me though. Of all the people in the school, why did Drew have date to the particular girl he dated? It was cruel on so many levels. What girl you may ask? Well, you'll just have to read to find out! Aside from that, I absolutely loved the story. The author wrote Remembrance after watching the music video for Love Story by Taylor Swift. The fact that the song inspired the book was a big reason behind why I wanted to read it, and I was definitely not disappointed. I think Taylor Swift is an amazing song writer, but I'd never seen this particular video so I decided to wait until after I read the book to watch it. I got chills watching it. The author brought the song to life. Now I'll always think of Lizzie and Drew when I hear that song. 

If you've read Remembrance, check out my review of Vengeance and Timeless, book two and three in the Transcend Time Saga.
