The Forgetting, #2

Written by Sharon Cameron

Samara is one of the knowing. They are a superior people descended from the residents of Canaan. They live underground and they can never forget – anything. They will always remember their first breath, everything they see and read, love, death, hate, and more. But, Samara has a memory so terrible that she knows that she must forget. The secrets she knows lead her to Canaan. Can she make it?

Beckett is from Earth. His goal is to find the lost city of Canaan and find out what happened to Earth’s social experiment. Beckett, and his friend Nita, are allowed to go on an investigative camping trip off of the ship after they land. But, when they loose communication, they find something. This something leads Beckett to start ignoring protocol.

Circumstances bring Samara, Beckett, and Nita together. Everyone is hiding something. But, in order to survive they must unite. What is really happening and what is everyone hiding from each other? Why is Samara so keen to forget everything she has ever known?

This is a great book for those who have read the Forgetting. This book is even better than the first. However, the first book will be a required read to really understand this book.
