The wait for entry into Heaven is a long one, and those on Level 2 pass the time with llenore. Nov 28, Rachel rated it did not like it Shelves: The relationships Felicia has throughout the book bring her character as well as those around her to life and sadly, some to death.
Usually this leads to an inability to connect with the characters because they are cold and emotionless.
Level 2 (The Memory Chronicles #1) by Lenore Appelhans Book Reviews
Make sure you check out her blog as well as mine for reviews, giveaways and bookish talk! That is just so powerful. Yes, things did not always workout for the best, but I think I would enjoy an underdog or less expected hero from a landscape like this. What immediately captured my attention was Appelhahs strong writing. Jul 09, Sara Walsh rated it it was amazing. Instead, she’s thrown into a war between Heaven and Level 2. Then a girl in a neighboring chamber disappears, and nobody but Felicia seems to recall she existed in the first place.
I don’t recommend it and I won’t be reading the sequel. They can even rent each other’s memories with credit, and there is this whole rating system that reminded me of You Tube mixed with Goodreads, but for memories.

The author really tried to make this clear and everything, and I could tell, but it was all mumbo-jumbo. I had a blast reading! Level 2 is a really unique story in a sea full of dystopians and paranormals.
I know, I know. I don’t know what my issue is, I just can’t handle the main character being dead. I was so all over that, especially since Lenore is the applehans of Dystopian August, which means she really knows her stuff. She has made serious mistakes with painful consequences, mostly involving an unfortunate attraction to the not-so-trustworthy Julian.
I could not stop reading! In fact, after roughly sixty pages, I skimmed through the rest of the book because I just couldn’t sit through it anymore. Then on top of it all, so much of the book is reliving memories. A number of twists and fakeouts happen and few of them make any impact. I really do have to give the author credit for coming up with something so OTT.
I guess it was meant to be sort of Sure, she appehlans lots of BIG mistakes, but I appellhans like she was a little bit too dramatic about them – my opinion, of course.
Overall, a fascinating depiction of Purgatory with beautiful prose and ideas, and I’m looking forward to the second installment to find out more about these characters.
One character I was not disappointed by was Julian. As memories from her life come back to haunt her, and as the Applehans hunt her down, Felicia will discover it’s not just her own redemption at stake On Level 2, everyone who has died now has access to their memories and the goal of this level is to ultimately come to terms with your death and move on.
This utterly unique take on the afterlife poses fascinating questions.
The balmy summer night I convinced Autumn to sneak out after midnight so we ap;elhans dance in Nidda Park, arms outstretched to the stars. There was an exiting moment for Felicia, I felt nothing. Anther concept I really enjoyed was that of the Morati and how they came to be.

An Endless Quest Book. Unfortunately, the other things annoyed me so much that the good things about the book got pushed lenors the background. Kelly and Miko, however,
