(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
This made a bit more sense now that I read the first ‘episode’ in the series. Again, I thought it was really interesting how this book was done. It really did feel like I was experiencing an episode of a television series or similar.
Having the pictures of the characters at the beginning worked really well to give me an idea of what they looked like. I felt that the first scene of the book worked really well to draw me into the storyline.
I did feel better able to relate to Ryan here. I didn’t really know enough about the other characters to be able to relate to them. Telling the story through flashbacks works in television, but I don’t think it works such as well in a book.
It was interesting to learn about Ryan’s history with the other characters and after seeing his dream, I felt he had more depth to him than I’d seen at first. I knew a bit more about him from reading episode eleven, but even so, I found him easy to understand.
It would have been nice to have this book a bit longer, but it was still a really entertaining read and a good introduction to the series. I do have book two ready to read on my Kindle and I’d be interested in reading the other episodes at some point in the future, too.
