Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for iRemember by SV Bekvalac. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resourcesfor my stop on the tour! Check out my review and let me know what you think.
The city of iRemember shimmers in the desert haze, watched over by the Bureau, a government agency that maintains control through memory surveillance and little pink pills made from the narcotic plant Tranquelle.
It looks like an oasis under its geodesic dome, but the city is under siege. ‘Off-Gridder’ insurgents are fighting to be forgotten.
Bureau Inspector Icara Swansong is on a mission to neutralise the threat. Her investigation leads her into iRemember’s secret underbelly, where she finds herself a fugitive from the very system she had vowed to protect. She has to learn new rules: trust no one. Behind every purple Tranquelle stalk lurk double-agents.
Asci-fi noir with a psychedelic twist, iRemember explores the power the past holds over us and the fragility of everything: what is, what once was, and what will be.
For a limited time, iRemember will be available for only 99p.
iRemember is a mind-bending experience about power-hungry people who will stop at nothing to control the City. SV Bekvalac has written such a compelling novel that I really could not put down.
I absolutely love the world building. The dystopian and futuristic mix made for such a unique setting. I could see it in my mind as I read.
I want give this book the review it deserves, but this is a novel you really need to experience. The writing is captivating, the characters are realistic, and the world-building is on point. I couldn’t get enough. Highly recommended.

SV Bekvalac was born in 1987 in Croatia, in what was then Yugoslavia, but grew up in London.
She studied German and Russian at Oxford, and went to film school in Prague. After almost becoming a film-maker and then an academic, researching cities and films, she found herself writing fiction about cities instead. She started off with screenplays and short stories, but they got longer and longer. iRremember is her first novel.
She has lived in cities all over Europe. Now she lives in London, or in one of her own imaginary cities.
