Lost in the Moments that Follow by Adam B. Davy is a fascinating science fiction novella. The human race has destroyed itself on earth, but a small crew of people still exists on the moon, in an outpost called System One. The crew has had their memories erased, and the only existence they know is the one on the moon. If they die, they are regenerated by System One. After Hadley’s latest regeneration, fragments of horrific memories start filling her mind. As she works to piece everything together, she realizes that something is seriously wrong.

Lost in the Moments that Follow could be an episode of Black Mirror (and I mean that as a compliment). The beginning left me confused but intrigued and wanting to know more. As the story pulled me in, I grew even more intrigued. Something dark went down in System One, and I needed to know what it was! Adam B. Davy has a way with words, and his writing style has a beautiful flow. He gave away just enough of the mystery in little pieces to keep drawing me through the story. I will say that there are some pretty dark and violent sections — potential readers should keep that in mind. Despite the violence, it has a kind of beautiful and poetic ending. It speaks to the power of forgiveness and second chances. Lost in the Moments that Follow also left me thinking about the meaning of human existence and about what drives our motivations. Great read!
