When your memories are not your own

The Essence

The Essence

The Essence by Kimberley Derting is the sequel to The Pledge.

It is hard to confine this to one genre as it is a combination of sci-fi, fantasy and fairytale.

It’s really tough being queen when you are only seventeen, have only just discovered who you really are, and not everyone is happy about the reforms you are implementing after years of brutality and segregation according to class.

Queen Sabrina may have been deposed but her essence lurks within Charlie. Charlie sits on Queen Sabrina’s throne but her thoughts and memories are not her own.

Can Charlie find a way to suppress the memories and emotions of the woman who survived for generations by stealing the bodies of a succession of young women or will she lose herself in the struggle?
