The mark of a well written novel is one that leaves you thinking about the story when you're not reading it - and Foreign Identity does just that.This novel captured my interest from the first sentence and held it right to the end. In fact, I ended up reading it in one day. I just couldn't put it down!A fantastic blend of science fiction and suspense with a touch of romance. Foreign Identity has easily become one of my favourite novels of 2012!
As I began to read Foreign Identity, I realized this is unlike any other book I have ever read before. I'm not a huge reader of SCI-FI but this book was top notch. We begin in a woman's head, a woman who doesn't know who she is, where she is, or what has happened up until this point in her life. When she opens her eyes she realizes she's chained up by her ankles and wrists in an ominous white room. Everything changes, though, when she realizes she's not alone. Not by a long shot. Becca Campbell [...]
I would classify FOREIGN IDENTITY as a sci-fi romance -- or rather a sci-fi not-quite-romance considering the odd situation between "Jax" and "Kel," the only human characters in the novel. This is a mysterious and unique story about a man and woman plucked from their lives and dumped in a strange, claustrophobic setting with what appears to be a set of clues to lead them out.But as soon as you think you have a handle on the direction of the plot, the author surprises you with one 90-degree turn [...]
I just have to say that Foreign Identity by Becca J. Campbell is my new favorite book right next to Ted Dekker's Circle Trilogy! It has all the suspense and crazy twists and turns that Dekker weaves into his stories. One book reviewer mentioned that Foreign Identity is like the tv series LOST and I would have to agree, except the ending is way better than the ending to Lost :)I don't want to say too much to spoil the story for anyone- just know that it is an awesome read that you wont want to pu [...]
Foreign Identity was amazing! I fell in love with the characters right away. The plot was suspenseful and intense, but had a love story, which is perfect for a romantic like me. I couldn't put it down-- it only took a couple days for me to read it, which is fast for me. I would definitely recommend this book. Five out of five stars and two thumbs up. Just one question: is there a chance for a sequel? (fingers crossed)
Twilight Zone meets Lost meets Star Trek with a little romance for good measure. I kept turning the pages to see if my theories as to what was going on were correct. I wasn't disappointed even when I wasn't right. It was hard to put it down yet bittersweet to finish. I can't wait to read more from Becca.
I loved this book!! It was full of twist and turns. It kept me on the edge, wanting more. Every time I thought I was getting to a part where I could put the book down something would happen and I'd have to keep reading. Would highly recommend for someone who likes Sci-fi with a little bit of romance.
This book had me enthralled from the beginning and kept me guessing the whole way through (not always an easy thing to accomplish!). I fell in love with the characters and really cared what happened to them. This book was very imaginative and a quick read (since I couldn't put it down!). Sequel?
A man and a woman wake-up in a concrete cell, chained to the floor. They have no idea who they are or how they got there. And so begins Foreign Identity by Becca J. Campbell. From the beginning, the minute I picked up this book, I could not put it down. It is so compulsively addictive that it is the only thing I did for three days until I finished it. This book was so mysterious and so thrilling to read, I was compelled to keep reading until the end.Ms. Campbell has a way with the characters in [...]
Kel and Jax awake in a small room. They are both chained to the wall and each other. Working together, they are able to escape the room that is their prison. One thing missing is their identity. Neither one knows who they are, where they are or what life was like before. Once out of the room, it seemed their only way to escape was through a series of tests. During these tests, Kel finds she has abilities Jax doesn't, and he's unsure of whether she can be trusted or not. They seem to be running o [...]
What would you do if you had a chance to forge a new identity? What if that new identity was threatened when you find out about your old life, that you're not a blank slate? Just how easy is it to unravel oneself? Finally, who would've thought an easel could deliver such unease?Foreign Identity is about the search for identity as an individual and within a relationship. It couches this exploration in science fiction trappings to good effect. Kel and Jax are awakened through a series of trials th [...]
"(Disclaimer: I received this book from the author for an honest review.)I was intrigued by the premise of this book. Two strangers wake up in a room together while chained to the wall. They then have to work together to break away from their prison. They also have total memory loss so they go by the names "Jax" and "Kel". At first I couldn't quite get into the story. The writing was well done, but at times it felt repetitive. The same descriptive words were used over and over. Somewhere around [...]
Honestly, I had no idea what to expect from this book. It's listed as science fiction and there are those elements, but it is so much more than that. It really transcends any one genre. I love puzzles and mysteries; Foreign Identity is constructed like a labyrinth. When you finally reach the center and discover the truth, it's a real revelation. I started to really care about the characters, which is a feat since the book begins with them not even knowing their own names. They are flawed and nua [...]
I defy anyone not to be hooked from page 1. There is a seriously compelling mystery in this book that you just have to keep reading to solve it. The plot is an intriguing self discovery from the perspective of one man and one woman who wake up chained together and no memories, even of their names. Throughout the book, clues trigger flashes of memory, but never enough for them (or the reader) to know what is going on.It reminded me somewhat of "The Village" movie and the TV series "Lost", but tha [...]
Incredibly well done. Took ahold of me from page one and never let go. Every element was done with skill. The suspense had me on the edge of my seat, the mystery had me guessing and the romance was tender and genuine. This book was completely engrossing and engaging. I loved every second of it, though I alternated between not wanting it to end because I loved the world she created, and wanting to read as fast as I could so I could figure out what was going on! As another reviewer said, I could n [...]
Kindle ASIN B0083M1OJ8This was free for review by the author. I had forgotten that it was already on my list for ages. I am sorry, Becca. But once I opened it, I couldn't stop reading. At 4:30 this morning I was at 70% finished. I know I needed to sleep so I nearly had to surgically remove it from my hands. Even then I had a hard time letting the story go in my brain. First thing when I woke, four hours later I had to get back into the book. It was THAT good. Very exciting! It felt a bit Twiligh [...]
I was asked to review this book by the author and give an honest review.The book is a story of two strangers who find themselves in an unfamiliar room together and both have no memory of how they got there or who they are.When I read the brief synopsis of the book I instantly wanted to read more. The book draws you in from the start and there is plenty of mystery, suspense and a touch of romance for good measure. After an excellent start I did feel that the book failed to continue the suspense t [...]
Foreign Identity is a light sci-fi puzzler. If I had to categorize it, I might call it romantic suspense. It’s Lost and The Truman Show rolled up in one. It’s a strange world, a living mystery, and two very ordinary people caught up in an unbelievable mystery.The science fiction and mystery elements keep the story moving, but the real power of the book is entirely in the relationship between the protagonists, the conflict of true character, and the painful struggle to find a companion when y [...]
I was lucky enough to read this as an advance reader, and I couldn't put it down! It was a great page turner. While fitting in the Science Fiction genre, this book exceeds the genre in my opinion in several ways. The characters are ultimately on a journey of discovery about themselves and each other, a journey forced on them by very extenuating circumstances, but it's the journey and the discovery that takes center stage, while keeping the reader waiting with bated breath to see what happens nex [...]
Do you like Mysteries, sci-fi, or adventure books? This one is all three. I really liked the characters discovering who they were and what was happening to them through all sorts of strange events and twists. This book grabs you and keeps you engaged through the entire thing. And get this, just when you think you have it figured out, you probably don't. There are great twists and turns that all make for a rather satisfying read. Keep Becca J. Campbell on your reading list, she is sure to have ma [...]
Disclaimer: I received a free e-book edition of Foreign Identity in exchange for an honest review. Review is of the whole book, but I have tried to keep it free of major spoilers.I have given the book 3 out of 5 stars on , but would ideally have given it 3.5.The premise is a familiar one – two strangers find themselves imprisoned and must work together to escape. However, it is soon clear that the true tale lies in the characters’ struggle to recover their identities.Campbell’s characteris [...]
Read more: sarcasmandlemons/2013/This felt at times like reading two books. The first part felt a little rushed. It was good, entertaining, but not great. The second part was pretty great. Once you hit the twist (which made me go OH MY GOD THAT'S SO COOL AND CLEVER) you can really see the genius that made Gateway to Reality such a unique read. When it comes to sci-fi, Campbell has a mind fit to write Doctor Who. What I wanted more of was characterization and building-up. The first part goes so f [...]
Foreign Identity is a novel by Becca J. Campbell. I read it a couple days ago. I enjoyed it. I picked it up partly because I like sci-fi, but mostly because I have gotten to know the author a bit (she lives less than 5 minutes from me - yet we've only met online!) and I think she's pretty cool. I purchased the book on sale for my Kindle and finished it in a day. That is not necessarily unusual for me, but I would assume most people would want to finish it quickly to find out what happens. :)The [...]
LINDA'S REVIEWI am giving this one a 3.9 for it's wonderful originality and creativity! Looking back, I'm not quite sure what I was expecting, but this story does fit the bill for bizarre intrigue. What I loved was that Kel & Jax are very thought provoking characters for about 3/4 of the novel. They are not only placed in dire circumstances together, they have no memory of their past or each other! This, in my opinion, was a brilliant way to begin the story. With every discovery being a fres [...]
Contemporary Americans live in a fascinating time. A time when audiences are notoriously hard to trick, surprise, or frighten. Authors everywhere are enduring a constant struggle to keep readers on their toes and shock them with a twist ending they never expected. This struggle is nicely battled in Becca J. Campbell’s novel, Foreign Identity, where suspense and horror are balanced with genuine human emotion and an overwhelming sense of mystery. The novel is, in short, steeped in the unexplaina [...]
What a different and unique book for sure.These two character's with no memory of themselves or eachother have to struggle and fight and figure out some puzzles and riddles to figure out who and what they are.Full of mystery, monsters and intrique while they figure out what is going on.A very good read for any young adult reader.4 stars
Foreign Identity is a book that grew on me as I read it. I was intrigued in the very beginning by the hook: two strangers are thrown together in a strange labyrinth of rooms, and their only hope of escape depends on their figuring out clues related to their identity and to the identity of their captors. My interest sagged just a bit when I quickly guessed one major plot line. Also, the writing in the beginning of the book, as one reviewer commented, was mostly well done, but a little repetitive. [...]
Foreign Identity by Becca J. Campbell★★★★☆When the Protagonist’s woke up locked in a dungeon, they had no memory of who they were. They had to work together to escape, which gave them the names Jax and Kel. They navigated their way through a labyrinth of different rooms until they escaped outside. With no knowledge of where they were or how to get home, they adapted to their situation and stayed together for survival. Jax scoured for a way out. With his incredible memory he was able [...]
This book refused to let go of me from the very first page! By the end of chapter 2, I was stunned when I realized I wasn't any farther along than that. The action is plentiful, yes, but it's the emotional grasp that's the real page-turning event.The two main characters have been imprisoned and have no memory of who they even are, whether or not they have families, or where they came from, it's like a scene out of a Criminal Minds episode, especially with the opening scene being shackled to the [...]
