Book Review: Reminiscence by C. Marie Mosley

Genre: Young Adult 
Published: May 30, 2012
Publisher: Self

The Blurb:
Can someone’s entire life – the only one they have ever known – be a complete lie? The truth is out ... and Coralie Collier is about the find just what lies within that truth - the truth about herself, the truth about her heritage, and the truth about her purpose ...

In Reminiscence, lies a story of a natural born heroine, Coralie Collier --- she just doesn’t know it yet. Coralie lives a simple, almost boring life, that is, until things in her life start to get interesting. Outlandish dreams, bizarre and dangerous encounters, and missing pieces to her memory, are all incredibly important fragmented clues that could help Coralie in finding out her true identity. Along with these clues, and the help of an old family friend, maybe there is a chance for Coralie to find out what is going on around her before it’s too late … and her true purpose has been compromised. All of the characters’ lives within the story swirl around her – and they all know the truth - the truth about the lives they were all born to live... Could there be more to her life than she ever knew? Could there really be more to her surroundings than meets the eye?

Get drawn into Coralie’s world and explorations as she attempts to discover what secrets are hidden in her past and what journeys are in store for her future.

My Review:
Reminiscence by C. Marie Mosley is the first book in the Empyreal Warrior series. I really hate it when a book isn't by cup of tea, but there were many things that kept me from enjoying this book. I was distracted by the over use of umm's and ellipses. The pacing was very slow which made it hard for me to stay focused. I think Coralie's parents bothered me the most. They took forever going back and forth with each other on how and when to reveal Coralie's big secret to her. It was frustrating. On the up side, I enjoyed Coralie and Courtland. I think the overall premise is interesting and holds promise for the future books in the series. Now, take this review for what it is- my opinion. So, just because this book wasn't for me, doesn't mean you won't love it.
