About the Book:
A Revisionary rewrites the rules. A Rogue breaks them. Which one is she?
Nineteen-year-old Portia Abernathy accepts her Revisionary draft to the Crystal Globe with one goal: earn a Dome seat so she can amend the satellite rules and rescue her brother. Her plan derails when Head Gage Eliab brands her as a suspect in a campus Rogue attack, and in a quest to clear her name, she questions if the vigilante Brotherhood responsible might be fighting for a cause greater than itself, a cause championed by the last civilization. But the current leaders have obscured history’s pages, and if she dares to engage the past through her training technology, they might wipe her own memory as well. Read the rest of this entry

Freedom costs more than Portia wants to pay, but revolutions run on sacrifice … and blood.
Three months a satellite prisoner, Portia wonders if the Brotherhood has left her to die—until she plunges into the domain of an underground smuggler contacted by her brother. But her rescue comes with a price tag only she can pay, and now, she must forfeit her identity to act as a spy back in the dizzying politics of Crystal. There, she learns that her enemies want the Dome to approve mass satellite executions. No one knows why. Worse, they’re using her friend Luther, now a Court Citizen intern, to sign the short-term orders. She desperately wants to confide in Luther, but can she still trust him with the company he keeps?

Time is running short and Amy has to decide if she will bring the computer program her father wrote to his contact or save herself.

Title of Book: Project Mnemsoyne
Author: Kim Frauli
Release Date: January 4, 2017
Genre: Science-Fiction / Dystopia
Series: When No One Was Looking, Book 1
The author, Kim Frauli, has been so kind to offer a free e-book copy of her book for all of my lovely readers. I recently read this so I think you guys may be interested in this. It wasn’t my favorite because there are a few kinks that I personally think the author needs to work on, but otherwise, I really enjoyed it. It is clean, wholesome, and perfect for the whole family. Certain aspects of this novel reminded me of Divergent. This isn’t a review so that’s all I am going to say about it other than the book summary below. Although, I may review it later on for the blog.

Perhaps you’ve come across this series and are wondering if you should read this. The answer is simple: YES!
Fans of dystopian novels such as The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Gifting, or The Seers trilogy will gobble this one up. Lisa T. Bergren is one of my absolute favorite authors so I am beyond ecstatic to be sharing my review with you all.
I enjoyed the first two books, although it’s been awhile since I’ve read them so I forgot a lot of what occurred previously. You’ll definitely want to read these in order or you’ll be completely lost. Not only did I enjoy the first two, but this last novel completely blew me away. Read the rest of this entry
