It was touted as X-Men meets My Name is Memory. But after reading it, I really think that it has some of The Vow elements in it. Nathan and Maryah are a part of a group of humans with special powers known as the Kindrily. They have been reincarnated for several times but when Maryah lost her memories when she was reborn in this lifetime, Nathan is devastated for his soul mate.
Nathan's superhuman family tried desperately to shower Maryah's with love in the hope that she will regain her memory when Maryah's family were killed in mysterious circumstances. A sinister murderer is inching closer to Maryah so Nathan must protect her while coming to grips with his own feelings.
I found the story to be quite heartbreaking at times as Nathan struggles with his own feelings and waits for Maryah to fall in love with him all over again. The romance element is the majority pull of this story since the paranormal element took a backseat to the love story between the pair. It was indeed an emotional roller coaster ride with this pair and I was happily rooting for Maryah to regain her memories. I only wished that they are more action featuring the Kindrily families with their individual powers.
Verdict: 3 stars.
