    One thought on “Persistence of Memory”

    1. For most of Erin Misrahe’s sixteen-year-old life, she has been constantly afraid of losing control. Erin has been diagnosed with schizophrenia at a very young age and her alter ego, Shevaun is highly dangerous and is prone to violent actions. Erin never remembers what happens when Shevaun takes over her body. In fact, Erin believes Shevaun to be a product of her mind but, in actuality, Shevaun does exist apart from Erin. Shevaun is a dangerous vampire who lived for quite a long time and has so [...]

    2. I think the reason I didn’t like this one so much as the previous four in the Den of Shadows series, is that I just didn’t connect with the characters as well. Don’t get me wrong, I really loved it – I just think that perhaps with all the “schizophrenia” going on I got a little too confused before the ending came along. But it still gets five stars… just.I found the premise of Persistence of Memory really intriguing, to begin with; a girl struggling with schizophrenia, trying to re [...]

    3. Reviewed by LadyJay for TeensReadTooSince she was a child, Erin has been plagued with mental illness. Her schizophrenic episodes have kept her in and out of various institutions for most of her life. Now, at age 16, Erin's therapist has decided she must re-enter the real world. Public school is a little frightening - lots of kids, larger classes, more stimuli to trigger an outburst. Erin attempts normal teenage activities; making new friends and trying out for the fencing team, but nothing is ab [...]

    4. “White pill, blue pill, yellow pill, purple pill; its like swallowing a rainbow every bedtime.”I'm really digging these Den of Shadows books. I like all they all about different people but still somehow seem to flow. I don't know if that makes sense yet because I just started drinking my first cup of coffee. Now for some spoilers.(view spoiler)[Persistence of Memory is a pretty quick read, like most of the books within this series because they are really quite short. This book is about Erin [...]

    5. Enjoyable read. I think that the books in the Den of Shadows series are a bit short, so some of the depth is missing, but I still enjoy reading them through once.

    6. I decided to return to Amelia Atwater-Rhodes's Den of Shadow Series. It took me awhile to realize she had return and now I have five additions to read! Persistence of Memory was an interesting story. Not as incredible as her earlier books that I fell in love with long, long ago, but still an entertaining enough tale!Erin has problems, she's schizophrenic and has been since she was a child. But things have been getting more complicated in her life lately. Shevaun, her alter identity seems to be t [...]

    7. I probably would have read this book anyway, because I read all of her other vampire-world books (I can't pronounce the name of her other series so I really can't even imagine trying to read it), but Amelia came to our local Toadstool Bookshop and what she said about this book really intrigued me. She got her undergraduate degree in psychology (like me) and the psychological aspects of the story - a girl who has spent her life in and out of mental hospitals due to hallucinations and disassociati [...]

    8. First of all I want to say this is number five in Den of Shadows series and I have not read any of the others but that does not matter, they are more companion Novels set in the same world, and I have been told some characters show up in different ones so that's neat, but this book on it's own gave me all the information I needed and it read like a book one not a book five and I am really glad for that since this book caught my eye and I got it cheap and really wanted to read it before having to [...]

    9. I thought this was better than this author's previous books. It had more "meat" in the story and actually had an endingt to the point where you couldn't continue with a follow up but enough that it didn't make me turn the page wondering why it was blank. I felt more attached to the characters in this book too-- the personalities and flaws were brought out so it made them more "real". Overall easy, good and entertaining.

    10. The beginning of the book is 4 stars the end maybe a 2 or 3. Erin believes she is mentally ill. She has blackouts and sees things. But what Erin doesn't know is that there are supernatural forces at work that are contributing to her condition. As stated before the beginning was enjoyable. Finding out what was going on in Erin's life and how she was learning to deal with it were interesting. So was the explanation of how these episodes started but I did not like the end. It feel flat and felt too [...]

    11. This book really brings me back to my earlier years. I loved reading the Den of Shadows quartet and the Keisha'ra series back when I was in the 9th/10th grade. I didn't realize more books had been written. I love Atwater-Rhodes' writing style. Her stories (while on the shorter side) always seem to flow so nicely. I really need to go back and re-read the previous Den of Shadows books. Her books always draw on and reference characters and events from earlier books, and I could tell that she had th [...]

    12. This is one of those books where I have to get my thoughts down on paper (or on screen, I guess) before I feel like they're at all coherent. As of now, I have no rating, only plans to show my thoughts. That being said, this may or may not be my most coherent review. You'll have to stick around to find out!So, anyway, there were a good number of negative reviews for this one, even among Atwater-Rhodes's fans. When I first started reading the book, I couldn't quite understand where they were comin [...]

    13. Fencing + Paranormal + Action + Romance = My kind of read!BTW: If you're looking for a short read, this took me only two hours to read, if even that!Alright, it has been a long time coming since I've actually enjoyed a book this much. Would I suggest Persistence of Memory to a friend? Yeah! The characters are well rounded and unique, the story is well written and very unique, and the overall plot was well executed. Plus, I'm a sucker for paranormal and fencing!SPOILERS AHEAD(view spoiler)[Okay, [...]

After spending the better part of her life in institutions and mental hospitals for violent behavior, schizophrenia and dissociative personality, her doctors are finally trying to re-associate her with the world. Aside for a few anxiety attacks and being afraid that she may still hurt someone, Erin is doing fine [...]

    16. The story centres around Erin, a schizophrenic teenager, with a mysterious connection to an ancient vampire named Shevaun. While the story was definitely interesting, I found both the plot and Erin and to be a little underdeveloped. Erin had such a hard time dealing with the truth. I felt that this aspect of the plot was completely glossed over. Erin didn't really deal with anything. She was just like, "Oh, everything's changedokay." It would have helped if Erin had a more distinct personality. [...]

    17. Persistence of Memory, the tenth novel by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, takes us away from the fantasy world of The Kiesha’ra Series, and back to the modern vampire world created in her first four books. Our main character, Erin, is a teenage girl who grew up believing that she was schizophrenic. She is prone to “episodes” where she seems to be taken over by another personality, a violent woman name Shevaun. At the beginning of the book, the heavily medicated Erin has not had an episode in a whil [...]

    20. I have to start by saying I absolutely worshiped her when I was growing up, cause, y'know, 13-year-old author, wrote about vampires, etc, etc. Her fictional world shaped mine as a child, and still kind of does, to some extent. Anyway, that being said, Persistence of Memory was kind of disappointing.I mean, the premise was promising - a girl who all her life has believed that she is schizophrenic and has a violent alternate personality named Shevaun, comes to find out that her alter is in actuali [...]

    23. Persistence of MemoryDear god this Persistence of Memory was intense, but I absolutely loved it. As I’ve mentioned in many of my reviews before this, I have been reading Amelia Atwater Rhodes’ books since I was thirteen and I’m pretty sure this might actually be fast approaching my favorite. It was so different from the normal Den of Shadows worlds we’ve been in thus far and yet it had all the same elements we know and love.I think my favorite character was by far Adjila. There was just [...]

    24. I want to start off by saying that I love all of Amelia Atwater-Rhodes’s books. I have read both her Den of Shadows series and her Kiesha’ra series. In fact, much like with Twilight, I found her first book, In the Forests of the Night when it was her only published book. All of her books are incredibly short reads. I would have finished this one in only a few hours if I had not started it on a weekday evening and had been too tired to keep reading. I own all of Atwater-Rhodes’s books, exce [...]

    25. I got this book as an Advanced Readers Edition through the Vine program. The premise sounded interesting.Basically Erin has finally enrolled in public schooling. For the first 16 years of her life she has been institutionalized because of schizophrenia. Sometimes her violent alter-ego Shevaun takes over. Finally Erin's life is looking up, Shevaun is under control and Erin can look forward to a normal life. That is until she joins fencing club. Shevaun once again takes control and Erin flees the [...]

    26. Persistence of Memory by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes Young Adult Fantasy – December 9, 20083 StarsErin Misrahe is not a typical sixteen years old. She’s crazy. Has been diagnosed as such and has spent years in a mental institution trying to “recover”. Over time, and a good deal of trial and error, doctors have been able to get her medication under control enough to allow her to leave the institution and join the “real” world. She befriends Marissa, a typical girl who inspires her to be jus [...]

    27. 3.0 out of 5 stars There's a vampire in my head, November 5, 2008This review is from: Persistence of Memory (Hardcover) YA FICTIONI'm a bit surprised by all the negative reviews. I found the book rather interesting and unusual. At least with this story, you know right away its fantasy - not like with some teen books that are supposed to be realistic and yet are not. I don't read much in the way of vampire and shape-shifter lore, so I was trying to figure out what different types of powers the va [...]

    28. Persistence of Memory by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes is a creative, yet twisted story of a life as a teenager; this book was published in 2008. The way Amelia Rhodes details the locations, and describes the characters is amazing. 17 year old Erin is just like any normal teenager expect for a strange Psychiatric Disability. She has been going to school in a hospital because of her disorder and when she starts a new semester at the high school, the hospital decides that she can take one of her classes a [...]

    29. How refreshing. Somehow I managed not to skim more than three pages on this one. I think because, it was to interesting to accidently skip a detail of importance. As I told Alea from Pop Culture Junkie on a Twitter message, "it reminds me somewhat of The Host." Which seems, frankly, I was wrong about. Admittedly, the alternations in reality taken in stride are very comparable; but that has more to do with the concept of the book, not the background details, or the characters for that matter. Wha [...]
