Where do I start? Forget Me Not is an amazing and creative twist in the world of fantasy. Descriptive, enchanting, and full of wonder, this novel is sure to take fans of fantasy by storm. It'll keep you reading for hours straight, keep you up all night flipping pages, always starving to read a little more.

Forget Me Not features a tenacious main character, a bad boy hero, and a bucket load of secrets.

Since her mother vanished nine years ago, Anamae and her father have shared a quiet life. But when Anamae discovers a brooch identical to her mother's favorite pendant, she unknowingly invites a slew of trouble into their world. When the brooch and the pendant are worn together they're no longer pretty pieces of jewelry - they're part of a highly developed technology capable of cloaking the human form. Triggering the jewelry's power attracts the attention of a secret society determined to confiscate the device - and silence everyone who is aware of its existence. Anamae knows too much, and now she's Enemy Number One.

She's forced to leave her father behind when she's taken in by a group determined to keep her safe. Here Anamae searches for answers about this hidden world. With her father kidnapped and her own life on the line, Anamae must decide if saving her dad is worth risking her new friends' lives. No matter what she does, somebody is going to get hurt.

The plot was wonderful. It was clever and original, full of fantasy while yet still being believable. There was non stop action taking place in this novel. From page one to the very last word, there was action and drama, romance and friendship, and everything in between. You have many different plots intertwining in this novel, creating a complicated web of plot. You have Anamae's jewelry that is actually technology and the trouble it causes, the kidnapping of Anamae's father and the father-daughter bond there, and the introduction if several new friends, including a possible love interest.

The characters were outstanding in this novel. They were developed, deep, and interesting, and each one was unique and special in their only way. The father-daughter bond between Anamae's and her father is a real, deep relationship that tugs at your heart. Anamae's loyal friend Will and supportive bestie Lily are both friendships that very closely resemble real life relationships. There is depth there, yet also the light comedy that can only be exchanged between friends. This is represented perfectly in this novel. Then there is Jax...  Sexy, guarded, protective Jax. A character I definitely enjoyed reading about and loved getting to know. And Anamae... She was a delightful, strong, independent character who had a feisty side and was a joy to read from.

The writing was also wonderful. It was descriptive, flowing, and powerful. I really enjoyed it. Stacey Nash is very talented at what she does and has no problem at all switching between steamy romance to hardcore action. She throws in several different genres into one novel and writes them all in effortlessly. The dialogue was good, the plot was very nice, and the characters were well formed and unique. Very creative novel.
