    Left me wanting more!

    This book episode is only 40 pages. The story line once you find it, shows hope for being a good one. I found the book lacking in more details about the setting and the characters. Nadia has a lot of potential in the terms of a character in a book. I would like to more about her back story and also the dystopia world background.

    In the book we are not quite sure why Nadia was hiding or why she was later taken. I also want to know what is up with those chips towards the end of the book. I am looking forward to the second episode where I can hope to learn so more about what is really going on in the plot.

    After the Darkness: Episode One by SunHi Mistwalker is a promising beginning to the After the Darkness serial.

    Authorities have broken into the home of Nadia and her sister Mila to take them.  Nadia is separated from her sister and sold by the corrupt officers.  She is taken to an arena with many other girls on the Day of Service and told to collect as many tokens as possible.  The girls fight each other in an attempt to collect them.

    After the Darkness: Episode One starts off slowly, but I am looking forward to the other installments.  It is too soon to make a recommendation.

    I received this book as part of a giveaway. As the first of an episodic novel, this book started off somewhat slowly.
    The first few pages were somewhat trying and overly descriptive, however the story picks up quickly after that as the
    author seems to get more comfortable. 

    We don't see any examples of Nadia's life of privilege in this first episode, instead we see what remains of her life come apart.
    The concept and plot are interesting so far. I am interested to keep reading the story but will most likely wait to see if the author
    publishes a collection of the episodes - personal preference as I dislike having a bunch of episodes clutter my library.

    Debated 4 stars, would do 3.5 if I could for the heavy handed descriptions at the beginning and a handful of editing issues, but
    overall a good start.

    The story start off with 2 little girls one is 14 and the other her sister.Nadia tell Milia to leave and hide under her bed but she said no they are there .Who is they? The men who kidnapped them are paid to get some young girls and then bring them to the lady in white.

    They are paid good money and then they left, Nadia is brought into a room and then she groom and her hair is cut and then she is put in the room with some other girls and then take a bunk and then go to bed.

    The lady in white bring the girl who are in different kind of robes and then the girl have to say a pledge to the sect and then they are line up and then each gown mean different things.

    They are slave and had to do what the lady tell them they are to collect coins form the people who are at the party you see the man who kidnapped her and her sister is at the party and then see Nadia.
