The Drafter (The Peri Reed Chronicles #1)
by Kim Harrison

Trust No One
Yes, this summons this new series to a tee. 

Peri Reed is a drafter. She works for a government agency which stops terrorists and anyone who threatens freedom. She has her own anchor, Jack Twill. He's also her boyfriend. Besides being a drafter, Peri has two years of military experience and she knows how to defend herself. During the last five years, she has proven her worth bringing down her marks. But, lately something feels off. When she questions her latest assignment and she discovers there is a list of corrupt agents and her name is on it, she is determined to prove her innocence. The problem is that she doesn't know who to trust. Jack and Bill seem to be lying to her. Her only chance to learn the truth might be by trusting Silas, an agent for the Alliance. 

Silas is determined to help Peri. He needs to find the list with the names of the corrupt agents. He knows he can help Peri since he's an anchor too. He wants to bring Peri's memories back although they might hurt her. 

The Drafter was spellbinding. I. Couldn't. Put. It. Down. I didn't want to stop reading it in case I missed a very important detail. I love the feel of the story, the idea of bending time, lost memories, recreating them. It reminded in a weird way of Memento at times. Peri had to use her own type of code to remember things which I thought it was pretty cool.  It was an action-packed book with all sorts of questions including who is really trustworthy. 

I don't want to give anything else away. I do expect this trilogy to become a favorite for me. I'm already eager to read the next one. I hope the movie comes next.....

“You never forget, you just don’t remember.” 

5/5 Fangs
