Author: Robert J. Crane
Format: Kindle Ebook
Alone is the first of a three part series called The Girl in the Box. I found the whole series as a free Kindle download on twitter. (You can find some amazing deals through twitter.)
Having now read the first of what seems to be a pretty bold series, I can whole-heartedly say that this is a title worthy of purchasing the paperback. It’s all action and go from the first page to the last, and Crane’s plot points are well calculated and paced perfectly.
I’m pretty excited about reading the whole series and can’t wait to review the box set as a whole. Fans of the TV Shows Alias and Lost Girl will find themselves completely engrossed by this first book. There’s plenty of action, moderate gore, and a good amount of mysterious story reveals to keep any reader on edge and holding their breath for the next scene.
Other reviewers seem to find a lack of character development and interesting storytelling, but I think those people are missing the book’s purpose. It isn’t about character development – it’s not meant to be the latest story of the ages (read here: Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, or The Matrix). Instead, this is an entertaining action story, worthy of a blockbuster movie (read here: Die Hard, Mission Impossible, Resident Evil, etc).
Give it a try – you can download the ebook for free. See what you think.
