Buried Memory by Adam J. Wright
Who erased Alec’s memories? Why? Why did he send himself that weird little magical artifact to a place he had no idea he was going to live? Weird. Answer these questions and more in this episode of Harbinger, P.I.
Publisher’s Description: Whoever said that nothing ever happens in a small town clearly never visited Dearmont, Maine. It’s getting hotter than hell around here. When the dead start crawling out of their graves, you know something’s up.
If there’s one thing I hate more than zombies, it’s having my memories erased by magic. That’s a real bummer, right? So when I get a chance to break the spell that’s locked away part of my mind, I take it, even if it means dabbling with ancient Egyptian sorcery.
Sometimes you shouldn’t go poking at things that are buried.
Because you end up having to deal with an army of the dead.
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel (or, in other words, SPOILERS).
Nervous Nellie says…
This is an urban fantasy, magic included – no assembly required. No sex, no cliffhanger and mostly only magical violence. Mostly. Some zombies, vampires, witches, and a super secret society.
Alec Harbinger works for the Society of Shadows and knows no other kind of life. In this book, he is smacked up side the head with secrets he never knew were secret. The major players are back: Alec, Felicity, Mallory and Alec’s dad. The mystery of the magical relic, the evil overlord that wants to raise a zombie army and the mystery surrounding Alec’s time in Paris on a special assignment gone wrong kept me engaged. There were plenty of lines revealed, but there were also plenty of secrets that are yet to come out.
I listened to this book via audio and it’s only around 4 hours long. It may be a short book, but it packs a punch. I’m not exactly sure how this author crammed so much action and adventure is just those few pages, but he did. The story moved along nicely and I didn’t notice any scenes that were not complete or any dialog that suffered because it was a short book.
I’m seriously liking this new series. I hope that it’s a long-running one.
