Tell Me My Name (Fated Stars)
Mary Fan, author

Children/Young Adult; Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; (Market)

A teen girl wakes up in an icy cell, alone and frightened. She has no memory of who she is or how she came to be there. She does know that she must get out, at all costs. And that escape must start with remembering the simple things - her own name. Her place of origin. Her possible powers. When a group of dark magicians reveal themselves to be her captors, she finds herself in the clutches of those who will stop at nothing to uncover the secrets locked within her lost memories. With her life fading under their merciless spells, the need to escape becomes dire. But can she get out when she doesn't even know who she is? Can she count on one unlikely ally for help? Or is it already too late for her, a girl without a name?

Author Jacqueline Simonds

Put this one on your “must read” list! A young woman awakes in an ice-clad room with no door and only a small window. More importantly, she has no idea who she is. Her only clues are the strange dreams she has, and bizarre encounters with an agony-inducing magician in black. The only bright spots in this hellscape: the beautiful blue butterflies outside her window, and the mage’s apparently rebellious apprentice. 

Fan’s suburb writing makes this claustrophobe’s nightmare intense and fascinating. The protagonist instantly captures your imagination and heart. And the revelation about who she is, and WHAT she is, will truly startle you. I don’t think anyone has attempted a YA with this sort of character. I look forward to the full series!
 

Author Tash McAdam

Mary Fan is one of the most remarkable descriptive writers I have ever read. Tell Me My Name takes place in a single location, but soars across a world, tantalizing the reader with hints at the shape of the larger setting. Totally fantastical, while remaining original with the laws of the universe, Tell Me My Name was an emotional glimpse into the current, distressing situation of a young girl you immediately connect with. The flash back scenes are beautiful, the pacing perfect, and the set up for a larger story intriguing. Mary is an extremely talented writer with a penchant for descriptions that stay with you long after finishing the story. I'll be reading this one again, that's for sure! Can't wait for the series!
