She believes otherwise and won’t rest until she gets a chance to go outside. ” – Goodreads
Review: Total all 3 stories come to 116 pages. It a very fast read. I read the whole trilogy. I can’t really see reading the first story without reading the rest of them being so short. I really enjoyed it. Had the game The Division feel to it at the beginning.
With it being so short I did want more, but at the same time, the Author did a very good job at the amount she had put in just a few pages. I was left with a big sense of the whole city, what could be going on, and what was most likely going on. The Author just left enough information for your own imagination to go wild.
