Two years were gone from her life. The face she saw in the mirror wasn't hers. There was a wall in the brain and trying to remember caused incredible pain. Lizette knew that she was, had been more than this dull half creature that she barely recognized. Someone else knew she was starting to remember and wanted, needed to stop her. Someone else knew she was starting to remember and wanted, need to protect her. The question was which ones would suceed first? Really liked this book. it moved right along and even though I had partially figured it out by page 50, it still was a page turner. ( )

Linda Howard has written another story that unfolds quickly, hooking the reader from the start and keeping them engaged with a fast plot, a fantastical mystery, and lots of danger. It reminded me a bit of Midnight Rainbow (Kell Sabin, #1) in that regard, even though the plots aren't that similar.

I was trying to figure out who Liz really was from the moment she looks in the mirror and doesn't recognize her own face. She struggles to dig into her memories, fighting the physical pain that comes along with them, and soon discovers that two years of her life are a complete blank. Strange ideas begin to pop into her thoughts and she becomes suspicious of the people around her. She begins to rely on survival skills she doesn't remember having. Is she going crazy? Is someone watching her, or is she just paranoid? And who is the man invading her dreams every night? I really enjoyed seeing her put her smarts to work as she questioned her situation and implemented a plan of action.

Xavier was a fantastic hero! I kept cheering him on and when he finally caught up with Liz, the fireworks were great! I did have to suspend belief at a few points, some things took more effort than others, especially when Xavier explains the missing details to Liz. It's the only thing keeping this book from five stars. In the end I just went with it and really enjoyed the story.

Typically good Linda Howard book. Lizette wakes up and doesn't recognize herself and her world starts falling apart. Good mystery trying to unravel why people are after her. Xavier is the hero. ( )

A little confusing initially but it continues to build on the story and has an unexpected ending. I really enjoyed it. ( )

Book description
Lizette Henry wakes up one morning and makes a terrifying discovery: She doesn’t recognize the face she sees in the mirror. She remembers what she looks like, but her reflection is someone else’s. To add to the shock, two years seem to have disappeared from her life. Someone has gone to great and inexplicable lengths to keep those missing years hidden forever. But the past always finds a way to return.

Strange memories soon begin to surface and, along with them, some unusual skills and talents that Lizette hasn’t a clue about acquiring. Sensing that she’s being monitored, Lizette suddenly knows how to search for bugs in her house and tracking devices in her car. What’s more, she can elude surveillance—like a trained agent.

Enter a mysterious and seductive stranger named Xavier, who claims he wants to help—but who triggers disturbing images of an unspeakable crime of which Lizette may or may not be the perpetrator. With memories returning, she suddenly becomes a target of anonymous assassins. On the run with nowhere to hide, Lizette has no choice but to rely on Xavier, a strong and magnetic man she doesn’t trust, with a powerful attraction she cannot resist. As murky waters become clear, Lizette confronts a conspiracy that is treacherous and far-reaching and a truth that, once revealed, may silence her and Xavier once and for all.
