Hooked on Books

Reading is my passion! I'll read anything if it looks good & sounds good. I'm also a sucker for books with unique settings & I'd choose Hardcovers over E-Books any day! : ) -Empress Reece

REMADE: Season One-Episode 1 "Shadows and Dreams"...

Shadows and Dreams - Gwenda Bond, Andrea  Phillips, Carrie Harris, Kiersten White, E.C. Myers, Matthew  Cody

 

 

Remade Synopsis:

 

"Every minute, 108 people die. On October 14th, 2016, from 9:31-9:32 p.m. EDT, 23 of those deaths will be teenagers. Now they are humanity’s last hope for survival. 

 

Awakened in a post-apocalyptic world and hunted by mechanical horrors, these teens search for answers amidst the ruins of civilization. Fate, love, and loyalty face off in this adrenaline -pumping YA adventure."

 

Episode 1- "Shadows and Dreams" Synopsis

 

"Holden Black never imagined his crush knew his name, much less that he’d suddenly be driving her to a party. But life can change in a second, especially when you’re 16. A look. A flash of headlights. A scream. What do you do when the unexpected jumps straight to the unbelievable, the dream becomes a nightmare, and waking changes everything except your heart’s desire."

 

 

Remade is a new YA post-apocalyptic serial written by a collaboration of authors: Matthew Cody, Kiersten White, E. C. Myers, Andrea Phillips, Carrie Harris & Gwenda Bond, and published by Serial Box Publishing. There are 15 episodes and each episode will be released weekly and feature one of the six different authors I listed above.

 

I have to admit, when I started reading the first episode, Shadows & Dreams, written by Matthew Cody, it didn't grab me the way the Bookburners serial did but as I read further into it I became more intrigued. I haven't quite made my mind up if I'm going to read the full season yet because so far I've only really got a glimpse of what's to come but I'm definitely going to stick around for another episode and see where the story leads. There's a fantastic cast of authors so I expect the serial will only get better and better but we'll see. I'm going to reserve my full opinion until I get a little further into it.
