Foreign Identity by Becca Camptell (Book Review)

Title: Foreign Identity
Author: Becca J. Campbell
Publisher: Consortium Books

About the Book: Two nameless strangers, a man and a woman, find themselves imprisoned together. With no memories of their own identities, let alone their captor and tormentor, escape is the only option. The pair faces a bizarre labyrinth of rooms and clues that confuse more than they explain. Every discovery only brings more questions.

Who captured them? Why were they taken? What does their captor want from them? What can the riddles mean?

Who are they?

Lacking allies and options, the duo must learn to trust one another. Mazes, puzzles, and even strange, lurking creatures force them to rely on their wits--and each other--for survival. But survival isn’t enough. They need answers.

Will the answers be enough? Will the truth bring them closer together, or drive them forever apart? Will discovering their identities finally bring them home?

My thoughts: This book was definitely different from anything that I have previously read.   You have to read the entire book to figure out what is going on, why, and who is behind it - so I can't really tell you much about the book without giving away some of the secrets.  It was a very quick moving book though. 

Jax and Kel (what they think their names are) are the only two characters through out much of the book.  To me, their dialogue seemed forced and I didn't feel the connection between the two of them.  I understand that they couldn't be "fleshed out" better, as they have both lost their memory.  The ending wrapped up this story but at the same time left the option for another book.  

If you are into Science Fiction, then this one would probably be something you would enjoy - it was just a little too far out there for me though. It has some great reviews Goodreads so please check those out as well - I just think it wasn't my cup of tea. 

~I received a complimentary ebook from the author in exchange for my review.~
