Elusive Memories by Amanda Shofner
Date Read: August 2014
Genre: Fantasy, Urban Fantasy
The Northern Alliance Betterment Society, better known as the Hunters, has persecuted the Gifted for years. When Sam Benson is taken and her memory stolen, she certainly isn't their first victim. But she's determined to use her family's influence as memory-bringer elders to make sure she's one of the last.
As soon as she escapes the Hunters' compound, anyway.
Two Hunter guards claim to be working to get Sam free, but only one has her best interests at heart—and holds the key to mounting an offense against the Hunters. With her memory fractured and the Hunters set against her, can she choose the right person to trust?
The paperback edition includes The Unexpected Gift, a novella following the events of Elusive Memories.

First Thoughts when Finished: Elusive Memories by Amanda Shofner was a unique (can’t stress that enough) story that pulled me and didn’t let me go. (Read in one afternoon). I enjoyed the mix of suspenseful storytelling and fringe paranormal. This is one of those series that will catch you off guard and make you want more! What can I say I am ready for the next one 🙂

During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
