Forget Me Not by Megan Tayte--A review


Alternate Cover Edition: B00TVFIU84


The Ceruleans: mere mortals infused with power over life and death. Five books; one question: If the might of the heavens were in your hands, would you be sinner or saint? 

Death is stalking Scarlett Blake. As if the encroaching darkness in her head wasn’t enough, she’s become disturbingly accident prone. Falling off a cliff isn’t ideal when all you want is as much time as possible to live, to love. 

Her fate is horrifying. Unbearable. And inescapable. No one can save Scarlett from The End that’s looming. Not Jude, the Cerulean who is intent on Claiming her. Not Luke, the boy who is intent on loving her. 

The clock is ticking, louder with every heartbeat. Now Scarlett must decide how best to protect the people she loves. Will she trust in Jude and the life-after-death he promises? Will she stand against the Fallen, who have her sister captive? Will she carry the burden of her death alone – every headache, every hallucination, every wrenching, aching emotion? 

And when the clock falls silent, when the darkness eclipses the light, will Scarlett fight for life? Or will she have no choice but to surrender?


Oh I am so happy to be reading again.    I previously read Tayte's first book of the Cerulean series, Death Wish and it was an excellent first book in a series.   Forget Me Not is the second in the series and provided another enthralling read with Scarlet and her boyfriend Luke.   They are a young couple you just can't help but fall in love with and wish with all your heart that they could work out!

But in this installment, Scarlet who thinks she is protecting her loved ones, carries a burden no young person should ever have to carry alone.    She does do some growing up after her eighteenth birthday and finally comes clean with the truth of her situation to Luke and his sister, Cara.   Truth is still hidden away from her mother, Elizabeth, as she has suffered enough with the loss of her other daughter Sienna.

Tayte's writing style is beautiful, so easy to follow and comprehend.   She reveals bits and pieces carefully and slowly, so as not to overwhelm the reader, but there is enough foreshadowing to lure the reader deeper and deeper into the fantasy of the story.

Now onto part three, Wild Blue Yonder!   Can't wait!    I rated Forget Me Not a 4 wink read.
