Staff Reading Pick
Book: Archetype : a novel by M. D. Waters
Recommended by: Melanie
Set in a futuristic dystopian world, a woman awakens with no memory of her life before--only a voice in her head telling her things are not as they seem. Is her husband her worst enemy or best friend? She has terrible nightmares about a different world where she is trapped. The dreams intensify and become daytime flashes of memory. A suspenseful story that kept me guessing right up to the end! It finishes with a cliffhanger, but don't worry there is a sequel, Prototype.
