Boston’s Quest starts about six months after DiSemblance, the first book in the series. Isaac is in a psychiatric ward, Jason is escaping into the world of gaming, and Boston is trying to help them both. I thought this book was going to be about a gaming quest that Boston participated in, after all that’s the title. I also thought it was going to be about a quest where people were fighting for their lives. That’s from the synopsis. As I read the book, I just kept waiting and waiting and waiting for either of those things to happen. Finally they did, but there was no way there was enough story left to really have the game play out well. And it didn’t. The ending is a total cliffhanger, right in the middle of the quest. It was even more frustrating because I felt like the lead up part of the story could have been condensed quite a bit. After awhile, I found myself just pushing through trying to get to the quest. I did think the writing improved from that of DiSemblance. There was some more depth to it. There were several twists, maybe too many. The story idea is good, I just still have a hard time really connecting with the characters and wanting to keep reading. The quest part was good though. I really liked some of the dynamics there. I may read the next book when it comes out so I know what happens, but I may not. I’m still undecided on that one. I was given a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
Boston's Quest is the second book in the series but can be read without having to read them in order. I found it about the same as the first book. The girl of the story, Boston, is not a strong character and a victim throughout the book which makes her a little unlikable as a lead character. The book is named for her but it seems that the main character is Jason, the main guy of the story, which was true in the first book also. It has a cliff hanger ending, which I don't care for, the first one did not. The characters were developed fairly well and the plot was so-so. The evil doctor that killed Jason's dad kidnaps Boston and his friends and somehow transforms them into creatures to play in video games with the help of Jason's crazy brother that has escaped from the mental ward. I got this book free for an honest review.
