Violet wants nothing more than to forget how she put her sister in the hospital. When she discovers that her sister’s amnesia is caused by otherworldly creatures stealing memories, Violet is propelled into Dementia, an alternate world of lost moments and forgotten dreams. It is there that Violet meets the Rememberists, a rag-tag crew of memory freedom fighters led by Declan and Cheshire, brothers who try to recruit Violet into their cause. Yet their shadowy demeanors make Violet question their motivations, even when she discovers that they can help her sister. But if Violet doesn’t start trusting someone soon, she’ll never be able to save her sister’s memories—or herself. THE PRINCESS ELECTRIC is the first book in The Rememberist Saga, a young adult urban fantasy series set in an alternate world of lost memories, where the most precious commodity is the ability to remember, and the pain of forgetting is a tortured silence that lasts forever.

Welcome to a world beyond the one we know, where memories are a most precious commodity. At times reminiscent of Asimov, at times reminiscent of the Matrix though instead of leather and grime there is glitter and glass The Princess Electric, author Derek Silver’s debut YA urban fantasy novel, is fresh, touching, and visually brilliant. After a traumatic incident, Violet finds herself amongst a world different from her own and in the company of a group of vigilantes called the Rememberists. On a quest to save her sister’s fading memories, Violet navigates the vibrant world of Dementia, but she remains uncertain who she can trust amongst these delightfully gray characters. What unfolds is a journey into memory loss, mental health, trauma, and drug addiction. I appreciated the themes of this book and the way Silver interweaved them with strong visual imagery. This land of glass and glitter is as fragile and lovely as fading memories. It’s poetic. It moved me on more than one occasion, to tears towards the end. The Princess Electric has its lovely moments where I felt so immersed in the story and could see so clearly what was happening. I gave the story four stars instead of five because I felt the pacing lagged at certain points. At these points, there was a lot of telling in the form of explaining through dialogue. Having said that, there were many powerful moments where this was not the case. Where the story vibrated off the page. If I could, I would have given this story 4.5 stars, but since that’s not an option, I gave it 4 because the telling was enough it pulled me out of the story occasionally. This is, of course, my opinion and perhaps a matter of preference. Overall, I recommend The Princess Electric. The imagery is brilliant and totally enjoyable. The subject is fascinating and moving. Silver’s writing weaves in fantastical imagery with touching subject matter and characters who are relatable and memorable. I look forward to this author’s next project.

Something I really liked about this ~~ Imagine falling down the rabbit hole to emerge in a world full of forgotten memories ~~ Welcome to Dementia, an original and fascinating world that is constantly changing, like you’ve never seen before. I’ll try not to spoil too much with this review while still sharing some things I liked about it. From the very beginning of this story, you can feel the suspense hanging in the air and it remains that way throughout the book. You’ll want to keep on reading. Something I really liked about this book is that everyone is special in his/her own way, everyone gets powers in Dementia, but still everybody remains human. Not only physically, but also mentally, there are moments where I could definitely relate to certain characters. There was however one thing that bothered me while reading the book. I’m a really big fan of books where the characters get a lot of time to develop and evolve in their personalities. In The Princess Electric, I felt like the characters were often more flat characters than round characters. Like with Declan and Cheshire, it’s obvious that there is a good guy – bad guy dynamic here, but sometimes you start wondering whether that’s still true, and the next moments you’re back to thinking, yes definitely good-bad. Plus there are some moments of betrayal and withholding of information, where nobody really seems to care about it. Oh no, you betrayed us, but the next moment, everybody is again working together. Don’t understand me wrong, there are moments where you learn some background stuff about the characters, there are moments where you feel the way they feel, but still, I missed that deeper connection you get when the characters are more round characters, how you get to know and befriend them. So hopefully, we’ll get these chances in the next books. Secondly, I was wondering, what happens while Violet is in Dementia, isn’t there someone who would notice she’s gone for a certain time? But I guess the ending of the book provides an answer to this question 😉. Back to the positive things: the writing style is great, the story never gets boring (except during some fighting scenes, sometimes they keep going on a little bit too long in my opinion, but afterwards the story comes back to speed, so it didn’t bother me that much), it’s not really that predictable, there is a wide range of enemies in this book (all working for the same villain) so you’ll be surprised over and over again when you learn the Queen has yet another thing on her sleeve to throw at the Rememberists. The world of Dementia is also very fascinating, how it consists of pieces of forgotten memories, how the entire world is constructed of them. The figments are a nice touch, how people keep being alive in their memories even long after they are gone, but ssshhhttt don’t tell them. Something I’d like to see more of are the twists and twisthops, it’s fascinating how things can change that way in Dementia. How one moment, you can be standing in a busy Starbucks in NYC, and the next you’re suddenly standing in the snow in Russia. I don’t know if I could ever navigate in a world like that, but I would most certainly like to give it a try. Also, there are a lot of openings for the next book, things that left you wondering what will happen next. So I’d like to give a 4/5 overall rating, and I’m exited about the next books. ~~ Forget me not - Remember me always ~~ (thank you Derek Silver for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review, I really enjoyed reading it)

THE PRINCESS ELECTRIC is the first book in The Rememberist Saga, a young adult urban fantasy series set in an alternate world of lost memories, where the most precious commodity is the ability to remember, and the pain of forgetting is a tortured silence that lasts forever. Review: This book was pretty good. I really enjoyed the plot of the book and the concept of it. I thought that the concept was pretty unique. I also liked how the world was developed and the book kept me intrigued from beginning to end. However, I did have a lot of questions about the book. I think that the book touches on a lot of sensitive topics, the most obvious being dementia and Alzheimer's like elements in the book. The book is and can be a hard read for people that have loved ones that are suffering from those diseases. and while I have not had any one personally in my life that has been affected by those diseases I can see where it might be hurtful to read this if you do, so I would suggest cautioning yourself before reading this book if you do have that criteria. I also thought that the pacing was really slow in a lot of the parts of the book and I didn't think that the characters were developed that well in my opinion. The characters don't have that many distinguishing features in my opinion and they're just kind of flat on the page. Verdict: It was good for the most part

    The unique world the author has created for this series is fascinating, it is filled with action, suspense, magic and a touch of romance. The detailed writing allows the reader to easily visualize the story taking place. The characters are relatable and I became invested in each of them early on - I do hope we get to learn more about the side characters in future books. This is the type of book that you want to take your time reading because there is alot to take in.

    This was such a unique story. I really enjoyed it but I also struggled with it, I could not read it in one sitting even if I had the time. It felt like there was a lot to take in. That said, the characters are interesting, the concept was very unique, and some of the details were very in depth. I would definitely recommend. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review
