Blog Tour: Foreign Identity by Becca Campbell

Title: Foreign Identity
Author: Becca Campbell
Find it here: Amazon, Goodreads

Cold. Confusion. Fear. This is how it all begins.

Waking up without your memory in a cell and bound by chains is terrifying.

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: 

Foreign Identity is so different from the books that I usually read and review here. I mainly stick to YA because it’s the genre I identify easiest to but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy adult type books. Many of my favorite books are considered “adult” and if I find the synopsis of a book that I really like, chances are I’m going to read it whether it’s YA or not. With that being said, Foreign Identity was one of those synopses that really grabbed and made me really excited to read it!

Foreign Identity really jumps right into the action with the two main characters who find themselves chained up and they can’t seem to remember anything, even their own names. I got really excited when I read the first chapter because it sounded like it was going to be a little like a Saw movie without the intense horror or blood and guts. But the plot line of the story turned out to be like nothing I’ve ever read before.

The whole time I was reading this book I kept thinking to myself, “How did this happen? Where are they? Who are they? When are they going to remember anything?” I’m flying through the book because I want to know the answers to all these questions! And the next thing I know I’m at the end of the book what can I say? It was pretty good! All my questions were answered which is great because I like to read books that are just one book! Even though my first inclinations of this book were Saw, it ended up being a science-fiction version of saw without the horror and gore. I give Foreign Identity 4 hearts because it was really fast-paced and a unique novel!
