Episode 2: Losing Quinn After a month's wait for the second episode, I was able to easily remember the characters and pick up where I left off in the first episode. The action picked up a bit, and I was so wanting just a little bit more. But alas, I must wait for the next episode! I fear this format is going to try my patience, but I'm really loving the story so far! [4 stars]
Overall Thoughts So Far (Episodes 1-5) I'm definitely intrigued by this series. While there are a lot of characters to keep up with and the episodes jump quickly between "scenes," I'm interested to find out what happened to Quinn and am hoping for a few romances to develop too! I'm not sure the serial format is my favorite, but it hasn't deterred me from continuing to read!
At this point, I'm still a little wary of the high price tag. The publisher recently lowered the price to $1.99 per episode (with the first one still a free download), but that's still $24 for the complete book when all is said and done. A little pricey for me, but some may not object.
Kudos to Olivia Newport for a great new story. I look forward to reading the rest of it!
I received a free copy of this book from Barbour Publishing through Net Galley in exchange for my fair and honest review.
After devouring the first episode in this series, I was eagerly awaiting the release of the second. The day finally came and at the click of my mouse I downloaded it to my Kindle. Much to my dismay I finished it very quickly and here I am again waiting for the next episode. (Still excited I must say!)
I am continuing to enjoy getting to know the characters and Olivia Newport is doing a marvelous job of slowly peeling back the layers to keep the mystery going. This episode only moves the story along by a few hours. It picks up with the disappearance of Quinn and allows us to tag along as more and more people begin to realize that he is gone. It is interesting to see the different reactions from each of the people. Some think that Quinn just decided he didn't want to be there and others think something far more sinister is going on.
As expected, right when it felt like a breakthrough was coming, the book ended with a startling cliffhanger. In fact as I sit here I'm not even sure if I know all the details about it yet. So the wait of a week for the next episode is killing me!
At this point I'm not really crazy about this being released as episodes. If I were to do it all over again I'd probably wait until it was completely released and then I could read it at my own preferred pace. Please don't let my negativity about the release cloud my thoughts on the story line. It is very well written an truly does make me want to just devour it!
