I’m not like the other girlygigs in Cityplace; I’m a bringer. I can sing to the only animals left in NotsoGreatBritAlbion and make them land. Adara, catcher of birds -that’s what they call me and that’s what I can do.
Now that the Agros have cut supplies and folk are near starved, I’d best keep shutums about my name though, or everyone will want a piece of me. I’d best creep and peep all stealthy-like to track down my bro-bro, snatched by Agro scum for who knows what.
Good job I’m trained in S.A.N.T. ways too, for I’ll need all my roughhouse skills to keep the Agro spies, Nearly’s and wolfies at bay until I find and bring home my bro and all the other missing Meeks.
I just wish I knew who or what is following my every move.
In this unsettling and mysterious vision of the future, animals are almost extinct and humans are subjugated by the sinister and secretive Agros; nothing is as it seems. And 17-year-old Adara must use all her courage and power battling against evil forces to save herself and those she loves. This is a coming of age tale with a difference. The inventive slang-derived language creates a fresh and dynamic style to create a truly compelling world inhabited by characters such as Clonies, Nearlymen, and S.A.N.T.S.

What people are saying about The Song of Forgetfulness series: "Mad Max meets The Wizard of Oz" "I loved the unique language, and both the style and the voice of the book reminded me of Patrick Ness' Walking Chaos Trilogy. I would definitely recommend it to people who enjoy his books!" “Author Nicola McDonagh has a way of putting the reader in the moment with vivid imagery and her book 'Glimmer and Other Stories' is a wonderful example of her ability to do just that. Her writing is, quite simply, beautiful.”Review:
5.0 out of 5 stars A fresh voice 1 Jun 2013By kbimFormat:Paperback|Amazon Verified PurchaseThis is very fine work from a new author with a unique voice and vision. If there's any justice it will become a classic of the genre! The idiosyncratic use of language, combined with distinctive character and story development make it a book that definitely rewards re-reading. Looking forward to part 2....
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Jun 30 2013By Margarita GakisFormat:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified PurchaseWhat an amazing read! Not only world building but language building as well! So much of the setting comes through in the language of the characters. Adara is a fantastic heroine and protagonist. She is strong, smart and unaware of her true powers. I can't wait to read more in the series.
I cannot stress enough how much I loved the mythology and history of this future world. The cadence and language of the book is amazing.
