One invention and two men hoping to change the way humans connect—through memory exchanges—but days before it’s released, one man realizes it may do more harm than good.
Foster Grady pleads with doctors to give his dying wife a moment of reprieve. He wants her to experience his creation: the ability to relive their life together through his memories. But when doctors refuse, terminal patient, Ashyr Harmon, convinces Foster to give him the chance instead.
The exchange becomes Ashyr's lifeline and the two form a friendship and business deal which ignites dangerous consequences.
REMEMBER is the origin story of the invention Em-Path and the dynamics of those involved with its creation. This story can be read first and adds to the overall interest and complexity of The Existence Series.
Reviews of REMEMBER
"I'm a sci-fi fan. Always have been. There's just something about how that genre explores humanity as a whole and what it means for civilization when technology encroaches on how things have been done for millennia.That said, this book fits perfectly into my expectations and does so in a much more tender way than a lot of sci-fis, which was refreshing. Allred doesn't hit you over the head with heavy jargon. She hits you in the heart with emotion..."
"The author does an incredible job of weaving the story that will become larger than life in time. I loved the points of view from each character, but found the "villain's" perspective to be the most fascinating. Exploring the theme of what true intimacy is, what it means, and what it can accomplish between friends, families or strangers, is the crux of both the novella and its invention...Allred manages to flesh out characters layer by layer, such that they become real and relatable to the reader...Excellent pacing, excellent writing, flawless execution, and phenomenal characterization. Bravo."
"I can't get the premise of this story out of my head. What would happen if we could share our memories? How could that change the way we see one another and feel about each other. It would deepen human understanding, but could also destroy it. And what could the creators of such a device make that would one-up such an invention? I am so curious to see what comes next; for Ahsyr, Foster, Brody, and Mariana."
