In a world where collective hives are enslaving the population and individuals have been hunted to the verge of extinction, Maggie Harper, and independent 21st Century woman, must find the strength to preserve the freedom of the future, but without the aid of her memories.
After experiencing a traumatic time loss, Maggie is plagued by a barrage of images she can't explain. When she's attacked by a creep with a spider's web tattoo, she is saved by Marcus, a man she's never met, but somehow remembers. He tells her that both he and her creepy attacker are from a future in which individuals are being murdered by collectives, and Marcus is part of the rebellion. The collectives have acquired time travel and they plan to enslave the human race throughout all of history. The flashes Maggie has been seeing are echoes of lost memories, and the information buried deep within them is instrumental in defeating the collective hives.
In order to preserve the individuality of mankind, Maggie must try to re-discover stolen memories, re-kindle friendships she has no recollection of, and wade through her feelings for the mysterious Marcus, all while dodging the tattooed assassins the collectives keep sending her way.
If Maggie can't fill the holes in her memory and find the answers to stop the collectives, the world both in her time and in all ages past and future will be doomed to enslavement in the grey, mediocre collectives. As the danger swirls around her and the collectives close in, Maggie realizes she must make a choice: stand out or fade away...
This is one of those stories that is very hard for me to write a review for. There was so much going on, that I can not put a synopsis into words. You just have to read this book for yourself to find out what all the hype is about!
There were parts of the story where I was confused, but many of my questions were answered by the end of the book. The ending left me with even more questions that I can not wait to find out the answers to in future books! Persistence of Vision kept me at the edge of my seat, and I could not turn the pages quick enough.
I know this review is a short one, but take my advice, and GET THIS BOOK! The writing is fantastic, the characters are realistic and the plot is entertaining and fast paced!
Thank you Liesel for sending me a copy to review and allowing me to participate in the blog tour!
