In Mary Fan's second novella, a 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?

Tell Me My Name introduces the main characters in Mary’s new fantasy series, Fated Stars, with the first book, Windborn, due in 2015.

I received a free copy from the author/publisher through Mark My Word Publicity in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! 

Can we just talk about the cover for a tad, please? It's severely gorgeous. However, as gorgeous as it is, it's pretty deceiving. Tell Me My Name is not kidding around. It's dark and it's full of pain and hurt and precariousness. After all, what can you be sure of if you don't even know who you are? I liked the way the protagonist's feelings were portrayed as she journeyed from utter ignorance to discovering who she is. It felt very real and plausible. It was interesting to find out about this fantasy world - which even in this 52 pages seemed very layered - alongside with her as she was trying to regain her lost memories of it. What I was not fond of was her voice. She sounded conceited whatsoever and even when she realized how old she was she talked about her peer in age as if he was below her. All in all, I will pick up the first book, Windborn when it releases because the fantasy word gripped my attention and I hope I'll warm up to the protag eventually.
