I needed a short read a couple nights ago, so I opened up this one. It’s a sweet, short read that appears to set up a creative commons sci-fi universe.
The characters were pretty good. Some of them seemed kind of flat, but they were engaging enough for me to keep reading.
The dialogue was good, realistic, and easy to understand. there was a little bit of scienc-y talk, but not much and it was all understandable by a non-scienc-y person.
I wasn’t really sure what the point of the story was besides to set up the Mydlands universe. It was interesting because they had a few things happen, but it wasn’t terribly engaging.
Overall writing quality: .5/1
As mentioned above, the story seemed a little too much like a set-up and not enough like something you can just read
Since this book was so short, it was hard to put down. Plus there was enough action to want to know what happened next.
If you need a short read, this one is worth it. Especially since it’s free right now on Amazon.
