Tabula Rasa

By Kristen Lippert-Martin

When a procedure to erase her troubled memories goes awry, Sarah starts to remember snatches of her past. Was she a terrorist or vigilante? Will the procedure save or destroy her? The answers lie trapped within her mind.

Sarah finds herself in a battle for her life within the walls of her hospital-turned-prison. A procedure to eliminate her memory goes awry, and she starts to remember snatches of her past. Was she an urban terrorist or vigilante? Has the procedure been her salvation or her destruction? The answers lie trapped within her mind. To access them, she'll need the help of the teen computer hacker who's trying to bring the hospital down for his own reasons, and she'll need to evade an army of mercenary soldiers poised to eliminate her for good. If only she knew why . . .

  • This series successfully blends cinematic action sequences with witty dialogue and emotionally rich characters, making it an appealing choice for fans of the popular dystopian/sci-fi thriller category.
  • Empowered heroines remain much in demand (think Divergent, etc.), and Angel is no damsel in distress.
