Can’t Forget (Solum Series Book 2) by Colleen S. Myers – Review by Erin Davidson

Can't Forget (Solum, #2)Can’t Forget by Colleen S. Myers
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Can’t Forget is the second installment in Colleen S. Myers’ Solum Series, that takes off right where the first one ends. Elizabeth (Beta) Camden is struggling to understand her memories of the time she was with the E’mani. She’d thought that she had repressed them and lost them for good, until they begin creeoing their way back into her head. Unable to understand then and what the E’mani did to her while she was captive, sends her on the path of revenge to take down the E’mani’s stronghold in the dead of night. If Beta can’t forget her past, she won’t have a future.
It took me awhile to get into this series and enjoy the books, as all the new information is thrown rapidly at the reader, and it takes a minute to orientate yourself. Which can sometimes be an effective writing device, but other times it can feel a bit rushed and things get lost in translation. I found this to be the case for the start, and had to go back and forth to make sure I understood everything clearly and correctly. After I settled in and got the hang of everything I really started to enjoy the series and this book in particular. Marin and Beta’s chemistry together was fantastic and will leave you feeling flushed and giddy. Their tension was very well written and almost had me wanting more. I also enjoyed the creativity that went into writing this series and combination of magic and technology. I thought it was done very well, as it’s not a combination that you see often, or that works well together. But the author definitely proved that wrong.
Overall I gave Can’t Forget 3/5 stars.

A great read about remembering. Elizabeth was abducted by aliens called the E’mani and taken to a far away planet but she fled from them to another race called the Forst. A few months later she finds her happy ever after in marriage and a baby. But the E’mani are not far behind and the threat of war looms. Will the Forst be able to stop the E’mani and war before it’s too late?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns. Well developed characters like Marin protecting everyone but kind underneath or Elizabeth standing up for herself but loving underneath. Great cast of supporting characters like the kind old mentor Ute or the fun friend Hana. A spinechilling villain.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the sci fi nature of the place with glistening lakes and icy world of two suns with blue and green shadows for a futuristic yet beautiful sense of nature.
And the sense of detail in the world with the layout and clan tents and greenhouses clearly thought out and described as if you were exploring it too.
I also loved the use of foreboding over the whole wedding scenes which was beautifully done. The use of flashbacks memories was done well and didn’t distract from the narrative of the present and added to the mystery. The only issue I would raise is that there was some repetition in places which if resolved would be five stars. Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars.

Can’t forget is the second read in the Solum Series from author Colleen S. Myers. Once again this book has held me totally captivated from the start, right until the very end! For the full benefit of this incredible series I recommend that it’s read in order, as you wouldn’t want to miss a thing with this series. I didn’t think Colleen S. Myers would get any better with this series, but my oh my – has she proved me wrong!

This author has once again transported us back into this created an incredibly vivid, mentally visual read. I couldn’t help but picture the whole planet in my mind while reading it, the look and descriptions of each individual character that Beta comes into contact with. All of it makes for an incredible sci-fi, alien romance novel filled with action, adventure, mystery, suspense, romance and most important an incredible plot.

This time we see Elizabeth ‘Beta’, trying to work out what could ultimately help the Fost bring down their enemies the E’Mani. Along the way she continues to grow as a person and her journey continues at a fast pace. I absolutely love her and Marin together, they bring an incredible dynamic to this read that I absolutely love to read about, but there is something between them that plays a big part in some of Beta & Marin’s actions. Along with Marin, Finn is back in this read and he brings another side of Beta to the forefront, one that also shows strength and determination. But too me my OTP has got be Marin & Beta.
But just as we think maybe there could be a possibility of a way to overcome the evil that has disrupted Beta’s life things are about to be thrown off!

Once again we were given twists and turns that make it even harder to put this read down, we cannot forget the magic that is weaved through the story and the history of it.
I loved that we are still learning all new things along with Beta, whether it’s the history of the planet she is on, the Fost, the E’Mani or even her own Power it made everything seem more real, and as though we were there living out the story ourselves.

Overall this was an incredible read that I loved that I got the chance to read, and cannot wait to delve into this world again in Book 3- to see what continues with Beta’s story – and whether they can finally overcome this evil! With plenty more story to be told I cannot wait to thrown back into this world!

Can't Forget (Solum, #2)Can’t Forget by Colleen S. Myers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Can’t Forget is the second book in the Solum series by Colleen S. Meyers and it just as action packed as Must Remember (book 1). This book has a lot of bumps and curves. I was reading along and then out of nowhere there was a sharp turn that I did not see coming at me. Beta (Elizabeth) is on a mission. She wants to go after E’Mani, the one who kidnapped her. Beta reminds me of a strong willed young version of myself. I love the books were I can relate to the main character and feel like we are one together. What will the future holds? I personally cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

Can’t Forget is the second book in the Solum series by Colleen S. Myers. It is a new adult, science fiction story with action, adventure, aliens, magic, revenge, romance, and drama. This follows on from book #1, so I really recommend reading the first book before starting on this one, in order to appreciate the story better.
I very much enjoyed reading about Bata and Marin. There were again some great twists and turns in the story that made it all the more exciting to read. Love how the author’s imaginative world that lead her to created this amazing series. I really feel like I can visualise the setting at all times.
A great second book in this series that I highly recommend! I look forward to reading more from this author again.

Another great read in this series! This book should be read after book 1 as it is a continuation of the story. Even though I really enjoyed book 1 in this series I think this one was even better. I loved reading more about Beta and Martin. I still really liked Beta and admired her determined attitude, she knew what she wanted and she wasn’t going to let anybody, not even Martin, get in her way! Martin was sweet and really just wanted to protect Beta the best he could, however with her mind set on revenge he was finding that a little, if not very, difficult.
There were again some great twists and turns in the story that made it all the more exciting to read. The imaginative world that Ms Myers has created in this series is amazing, I really feel like I can visualise the setting at all times.
A great second book in this series that I highly recommend! I look forward to reading more from this author again in the future.

Can’t Forget by Colleen S Myers
Stars: 4

This is the second story in the Solum series. I absolutely loved seeing these characters again. We get deeper in the relationships between different characters. We get to know more of Elizabeth and her past. We get to learn more about Elizabeth’s and Marin’s relationship and the ups and downs that they experience. I feel that this story was a great story to follow up the first and to build up to the third! Colleen Myers does a great job of constructing this whole new world for us, and then getting us stuck inside of it!

Can’t Forget: If she can’t forget her past, she won’t have a future. (Solum Series Book 2) by Colleen S. Myers – Review by Liz Vrchota

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book two in the Solum Series from Colleen S. Myers. I would highly recommend that you read the first book in the series, “Must Remember” before you dive into this one. There is a lot of detail in that book and it really sets you up for this one. As well as being a continuation from the first.

I have to say this one sort of bothered me. I had trouble liking/ connecting to Elizabeth (Beta). I found myself hollering at her in my mom voice a several times while reading the book. She really just needed to stop being so darn stubborn. I get why a character having these flaws sets up the way for future story lines but this one was just a bit too much. I don’t know maybe it was me, but that would have been the only reason for me why I knocked off a star. Everything else was engaging and interesting. I enjoyed the way Myers can build a fantastic world you can escape into. Her stories are fast paced and you often feel as if they are over before you barely have begun.

Like I said before this does pick up from the first book. Elizabeth, or Beta found herself in a whole new world from her typical college student life in that one. Now in an alien world she is also in the middle of a love triangle. (Those area always fun!) This one we discover more about her relationship with Marin. I did enjoy that aspect a lot, and Marin personally.

The E’mani is also still around and that means danger of course. This is where her stubbornness with come in to play and she will get herself in some trouble. She is also forced to make the decision to forget her past and embrace the future. Can she do this? I am looking forward to seeing what will come next in the Solum series.

Can’t Forget is the second book in the Solum series by Colleen S. Myers. It is a new adult, science fiction story with action, adventure, aliens, magic, revenge, romance, and drama. This follows on from book #1, so I really recommend reading the first book before starting on this one, in order to appreciate the story better.
As we discovered in the first book, Elizabeth (Beta) Camden went from being a typical college student one minute, to waking up on an alien world, the next. She is thrust into a fight for survival, with much at stake. But not without finding herself in the middle of a love triangle.
This book sees Beta in love with Marin (#teamMarin), but the E’mani aren’t going to give up easily and so Beta finds, once again, that danger isn’t far away. But this time she’s determined to take the fight to them. But will this rash decision place the one she loves in the crosshairs? Can she forget the past, in order to embrace the future?
A great addition to the series, and just as good as the first book. Beta did develop and grow through the story, but she did frustrate me by trying to handle things by herself, arrrggggh!
As with the first book, the world building is excellent, with wonderful descriptions and details. The characters were well crafted, interesting and original. This was a little unpredictable, with surprising developments that kept things interesting.
Looking forward to more from Ms. Myers!

Thank you, Ms. Myers!

Can’t Forget
By Colleen S. Myers
Rated 5 stars

Wow! What an action packed, emotional story!! I loved it…then I was irritated at certain characters then I was surprised and shocked. This book covers a wide gambit of emotions but never doubt how much I enjoy reading this book. Immensely! This picks up nicely where the last story left off. I would highly recommend reading book 1 (Can’t Remember) before enjoying this one. You would get the full feel of the story.

I have to say in the first book I was frustrated in who ended up with who. I really felt Finn and Beta (Elizabeth) should have been together. So with that being said i struggled with the idea of Marin and Beta. As the story moves forward I really saw the devotion between Elizabeth (Beta) and Marin. Their love felt deep in this story. So that made me feel better. Finn…this guy…he doesn’t give up easily. He wants Beta (Elizabeth). Elizabeth (Beta) loves Marin and Marin loves her. Love triangle at its best! I root for Finn because of the way Marin is acting but then Finn acts like a jerk and Marin is back in my favor. Although Marin frustrates me a couple times in this story. How Elizabeth (Beta) can choose keeps me perplexed.

We get to see some of the old characters (Yay!) but then meet a slew of new ones ( boo-Zara) as well. They all help the story along without overtaking the spotlight away from the main characters. We are finding out more and more about Elizabeth (Beta).

I enjoyed this book immensely! Drama and action filled this book and kept me easily entertained. I am eagerly awaiting the next in the series. I need to find out!

Next Please!
