The Memory Coder is a free short story that can be read on the Tor website here. It is set in the same world as Unremembered by Jessica Brody and fits into the time line before the first book. Although it is set before Unremembered I would personally recommend reading this story after the book because it does give an insight into events that you don't find out about until later on in the novel. I think the story will also make more sense if you've already read the book. That slight spoiler is mentioned in the next paragraph of my review so if you don't want to know more and you haven't read Unremembered yet then you may want to stop reading now.
Having already read Unremembered I really enjoyed The Memory Coder, it was nice to find out more about how the Memory Restoration Department go about removing memories. The idea of someone writing code that will create false memories that can be implanted directly into your brain is incredibly creepy and I have to admit that the idea of it really freaks me out. Imagine not being able to trust that your own memories are real! I wouldn't want to live in this world that's for sure!
The story is fairly easy to predict but it's hard to create much intrigue in such a short amount of time and I still enjoyed following it to the end. If you enjoyed Unremembered then I'd definitely recommend giving this one a try.
