Book Review: Nameless

Nameless, Book 2 The Memoirs of Jane E., Friendless Orphan
by Erin McCole Cupp

Erin McCole Cupp continues her futuristic retelling of Jane Eyre in Nameless. Before you read this one (and you will want to read it!), definitely pick up the first book of the series: Unclaimed. I enjoyed that initial installment a great deal and gave it five stars, but this second part is even better.

Jane is now in the employ of Mr. Thorne, working as a homeschooler to his ward, Kirki. While the futuristic element is still at play, this part of the tale focuses more on the relationship between Jane and Mr. Thorne. The electricity between them is so palpable, sparks should be coming off the pages. But, as with all classic fictional romances, there is much that is keeping them apart. 

Cupp has an amazing gift for prose. It takes a lot of guts to reimagine a classic that people love as much as Jane Eyre, but she has pulled it off with style and grace. I’m already looking forward to the third installment!
