Publisher's Summary

What if you were given only two choices in life: find some way to stand out or else fade away? 

It began with a hallucination. A time loss. A mistake. A strange man reaching out to her. All part of a tourist trap, Maggie is sure, and she's lucky it wasn't worse. Yet something about her life changed that day, and she can't put her finger on what. 

She forces herself to move on but can never shake the inexplicable emptiness she feels. 

When the man from that hallucination appears months later, he turns Maggie's world on its head. A man she can't remember. A bleak future. An oppressive regime hell-bent on destroying individuality and enslaving the world. 

Only Maggie can stop it, but the key to success lies in memories she no longer has....

Join the thousands who have already discovered this award-winning dystopian romance. Stand out or fade away...

A True SciFi Mind-Bender

This novel was way more intense than I thought it would be. The beginning started off being intriguing and by the time the first few chapters were done, I was completely sucked in. The twists and turns of the story keep you guessing and makes you really think. The future in this book is bleak, but it sure addresses a great deal of modern societal issues. I think that the characters were each written well and placed into this futuristic puzzle just right. I can’t wait to read the next one!

I didn't see that coming!

I love it when a book surprises me once or twice. This book surprised me over and over!

The story is about a young girl who has disjointed memories of things that never happened, or did they? She is swept away by a group of people who say they know her and need her to save humanity. But she can't remember them, not all of them anyway.

She comes face to face with love, danger, and loss.
There is so much uncertainty, so many unanswered questions.

The ending is heart-wrenching. Just when we feel that we know Maggie, really know her, she is torn apart right before our very eyes.

The production is flawless. I loved the narration!

Unanswered questions not enough to miss this one

Maggie sees a man on the LosVegas strip and her whole world turns sideways. Strange men try to kill her, weird visions flash through her mind, and she discovers things about herself she never thought possible before. This book is a twisting, turning Sci-fi adventure filled with time travel, mystery, and mental powers beyond belief. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventures with a sci-fi element. However, I would highly encourage anyone who reads this book to make sure they have access to the next books in the series because the ending leaves you hanging with many unanswered questions.

Great story, different

This was the first book I've read by Liesel K Hill and I am happy I choose it. The story is about Maggie. One second she is in LV with her brother and having odd 'dreams', the next she's surround by people who all remember her, but she has no idea who they are. She comes to learn she's very important in this timeline and begins assisting her team.
Maggie seemed a little naïve at times but she’s still trying to put it all together and remember things. She’s doing a good job because she sure asks a lot of questions.
Look forward to listening to the rest of the series.
Robin Wasser did a great job in portraying the emotion and state of mind of the characters.
I received this audiobook for free from Story Origin for an honest review.

Gripping story, great narrator

Found the book very gripping and finished it in 2 days. Already have started reading the next book in the series. I enjoyed the overall plot and got invested in the characters right away. One of the issues I have with such books is having too many characters to keep track of and that is not an issue in this book at all. Each character has a purpose, narrator has done a great job in distinguishing between them as well. The character development throughout the book is good and you start caring for the cause of the team right away.

David's character arc is really well handled and his recovery is handled well at first. I felt later in the book he just recovered a bit too quickly. It is hard to know throughout the book who can and cannot be trusted completely and what is everyone hiding and why, which keeps you invested.

I have questions!

I hate to give up on books, but after listening to 2 hours of this book (through Chapter 6), I don't have a clue what is going on and I just don't care. The MC, Maggie, is supposed to be a 24 year old, but some of the dialogue and actions seem like those of a young girl. Then, there is a chapter that comes out of nowhere, introduces another character and events, then back to the main story.

There is a long chapter (number 6) which supposedly explains what is happening through the voice of a person called Doc. I listened to his chapter, hoping to discover what the story was all about, but I ended up still in the dark. It is billed as a time travel/dystopian book and maybe that is part of the problem. I think the way the author wrote the book was what bothered me. She seems to throw things out there, then jumps to something else. From what I read, I was reminded of "Terminator", but not sure if that was the inspiration.

I might have tried to finish the book, but when I realized that it ends in a cliffhanger, I decided to throw in the towel. I didn't want to invest that much time in a book I wasn't enjoying and then not have a resolution.

The narrator does a pretty good job, but some of her voices were a little "off" for me. For example, the voice of Doc fluctuates between that of an old man and a weird foreign accent. Maybe if I had been more interested in what was happening, the narration would have been better. I was given the chance to listen to this audiobook through Story Origins and chose to review it.

Great SciFi mystery in dystopia

Great SciFi mystery in dystopian future Earth

Totally immersed in the mystery of Maggie’s missing memories. Persistence of vision refers to the optical illusion that occurs when an image of an object persists after the physical object is gone. Maggie sees a man in the crowd whom she recognises but doesn’t know. The mystery draws you in. Maggie looses 12 hours, her memories and something she can’t name. Just a hollow inside herself. This is the first in a trilogy. Lots of unanswered questions. Can’t wait to start on the second instalment.

Persistence of Vision

This story really captured my attention. I don’t want to spoil anything… but I was really enjoyed finding out all about Maggie’s situation. I can’t wait for the next book!

Liesel K. Hill did a fantastic job with keeping the story original and tying all the characters together. The twists really kept me on my toes.

Robin Wasser delivered a great performance. I really enjoyed listening.
