Summary
She wakes up in the rain surrounded by dead people wearing gloves. The only clue she has to what happened is a letter that begins "Dear You, The body you are wearing used to be mine." And so begins Myfawny Thomas' strange new life. She soon discovers that she is a high ranking official in a secret agency that protects the world against supernatural threats. There is a traitor in the agency and they are not only out to get her, they want to destroy the agency itself. Can she discover who stole her memories before it is too late?
Critique
This debut novel is highly imaginative and suspenseful. It is chock-full of suspicious characters, unique superhumans, and horrific villains. The mystery will keep you guessing until the end. A healthy dose of wit and humor add to this exceptional first novel. Highly recommend.
