MORTAL RECALL   For Sam Ryan, life began at age fourteen. She has no memory of her parents or her childhood. In a decade of service with the State Police, Sam has exhausted the resources of the force searching for clues to her identity. But all mention of her family seems to have been deliberately wiped off the record. Everything changes the night Sam’s missing partner resurfaces as a vampire . . . and forces her to kill him in self-defense. Now Sam is charged with murder. Suspended from the force, and with no one left to trust, Sam accepts some unexpected help from Gabriel Stern, a shapeshifter who conceals startling secrets.   While investigating the circumstances surrounding her partner’s strange behavior, Sam discovers that Garbriel’s been involved with a dangerous organization that’s planning a war on the human race. More immediate, someone is guarding the truth about Sam’s past—someone who’d rather see her dead than risk her knowing too much. To stay alive, Sam must unravel the threads of her past—and find out not only who she is but what she is.

*I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.*

Memory Zero is the first book in the Spook Squad series. This was a good book. I enjoyed reading it.

The first two chapters for me were kinda slow and it was almost to the point of slowness that I almost didn’t finish it, but once I started reading the third chapter it picked up speed and I really got into the story. I was glad I didn’t stop reading it.

The characters were relatable and the story was well written. The story line was easy to follow and I liked how Keri Arthur wrote the action and suspense scenes to follow one another in perfect sync. There wasn’t much romance in this story which was refreshing from what I like to read.

The story had a few twists and turns that really made it interesting to read once I got passed the first two chapters. Once I finished the story I couldn’t wait to read the next book in this series.

I give this story 4 1/2 stars and the reason for that is the first two chapters being slow. But I would recommend this series to people who enjoy the paranormal and urban fantasy gene. I have started reading book 2: Generation 18 and review to follow soon.
