But when the long-dead Raven reappears in her life, now as a very attractive grown man, she discovers that her photographic memory has the power to bring the dead back to life … heal her paralysis … and shape reality itself.

Pursued by a rogue government agent who wants to eliminate her and her talents, Minerva must learn to control her powers to save herself and Raven. Because if she dies, he dies as well―again.

My Review
So let me tell you about Memortality. I wanted to read this book because it sounded different. Minerva was in involved in a car accident when she was a kid that left her paralyzed. Her mother is completely cold-hearted though I was incline to think that perhaps she acted that way so that she didn't have to deal with issues she had with herself. Anyway, I felt bad for her having that type of mother. With that said, she wasn't all that sympathetic of a character for me at the beginning. Like her friend said she turned into the person she hated.

Once you get passed that bit the story picked up and was quite interesting. Her talent brought back Raven and did so he would be at the time and not picking up at the age he died. The author could have left it there and explore the story as a romance but instead added the extra element of being hunted. Now the story has action and another character who has a backstory.

I liked this book. It took me awhile to get past the beginning chapters but once I did the story took hold. And look at that book cover. Some of y'all know that I love eyes so this is a beauty for me.
