Book Review and Giveaway: The Memorist by MJ Rose

Meer Logan has been haunted by recurring visions of an antique box since childhood. So when her father finds a box that resembles the one she always drew, he contacts his daughter through The Phoenix Foundation (first introduced in The Reincarnationist) and she flys to Vienna to see it. The box appears to have connections to Beethoven and an ancient bone flute which is rumored to be a memory tool that has the power to unlock memories of past lives. And there are some who would do anything, even kill, to get their hands on it.

I found The Memorist to be a more satisfying novel than The Reincarnationist. Plot and character development were much improved and the conclusion was far more engaging. A great read!

Sorry for the incredibly short review, but I need to pack for my return trip to Germany.

The contest which I first announced on my review of The Reincarnationist has been extended until January 6th! So far, I will be giving away 3 Reincarnationist paperbacks and I'd love to give out all 5, so enter now either by commenting on this post or at the original post. If you live in the US or Canada, you can also win the grand prize which is both The Memorist and The Reincarnationist.
