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.
