Review – The End of the Beginning by Kiersten White

It’s over. FINALLY. And I’m not happy. I know, I know, you need a cliffhanger to make people want to read the next season, except this serial has caused so much frustration for me that I have absolutely no inclination of continuing on with season 2. The writers involved in this serial have all been amazing, and the quality of the writing has been pretty […]

Mini Review – The Slow Fade by Matthew Cody

Holden’s back in the spotlight and I couldn’t be more excited… except Inez had to come in and ruin that. Still don’t like her. But guess what? ANSWERS. My questions have been answered! I wondered if we’d find out why these particular teens, why bring them back, and we do! Obviously no spoilers so you can just breeze through these episodes yourself to find out. This reveal was kind […]

Mini Review – Memories of Arcadia by Andrea Phillips

Yes, of course, we needed another character. Granted, Arcadia isn’t the usual sort, claiming a place among AI characters such as Illuminae‘s AIDAN, the poor… thing? (not really sure how to describe an AI) is starting to experience the very human feeling of loneliness. I love how Arcadia became this mother figure, wanting to protect the teenagers after her previous human occupants (centuries dead) left her […]

Mini Review – Modern History by Carrie Harris

We. Have. ANSWERS. Okay, not really. Some, but not really enough to count, I suppose. Y’all know this has been a HUGE frustration I’ve had with this series. Modern History picks up with Cole who’s kind of been in the background and now it’s time to hear his backstory (which, by the way, is so heartbreaking). But here’s my issue with that: we’re still learning character histories. It’s the twelfth […]

Mini Review – We’re Dead in This Ghost Town by E.C. Myers

After ten episodes of waiting and waiting, something finally happened! And by something I mean they actually got to the city that’s been off in the distance until now. As the title suggests, they find it pretty empty. You’d think that would be a bigger concern than it actually was… So in comparison to the last few episodes, I actually really enjoyed this one. Part of […]

Mini Review – Mirror of Fate by Gwenda Bond

I don’t know what it is about the point-of-view characters lately but they are just not working for me. I’ve also noticed that there’s been a lot of racism in these past few episodes as well that sprouted up and I’m just wondering why. Not that it isn’t…realistic isn’t quite the right word, but I’m not saying that racism shouldn’t exist in fiction to be challenged by the […]

Mini Review – Whiteout by Andrea Phillips

Another episode, and more questions. The latest villain of this story is the weather. Yeah, you read right. The weather. And I’m pretty sure weather doesn’t act quite the way it does in this episode but I’m just going to say it’s because it’s fiction and call it a day because getting answers from this series is like pulling teeth. I did like that we […]

Mini Review – End of the Line by E.C. Myers

This series is becoming quite the mess. I needed a good episode after the last one and I didn’t get it. At all. In this one, we’re sticking with Inez who I, frankly, hated. I thought I liked her the last time she played a large role but this episode proved that to be far from true. Everything she said and did reinforced that and […]

Mini Review – Mourning Train by Carrie Harris

Mini Review – Mourning Train by Carrie Harris

The ReMade serial begins a new twist as all the character lines are in one place. I was excited to see that we weren’t getting YET ANOTHER new character, but returning to Nevaeh. This would have been all well and good if the story didn’t rehash everything we learned about her in a previous episode. It felt like a filler before the next installment (and who’s to […]

Review – Reality No-Show by Kiersten White

You know, I was FINALLY getting used to this story and the style in which it’s told. But clearly that was the best time to throw everyone for a loop and bring in NEW characters because obviously there weren’t enough. I both liked and disliked this episode. For starters, it’s focusing on these new people but the story didn’t seem like it would connect to […]
