Review: The First (The Returned, #0.5) by Jason Mott

The First (The Returned, #0.5)Rating:

Realistic portrayals of the bureaucratic response to an unexplainable event and the emotional turmoil experienced if you were to find out a dead loved one was in fact alive, drew me in as the scene was set for the rest of the series.

However, upon finishing, I was left feeling a mild mixture of indifference and curiosity, reminding me of the way short stories in anthologies are written; leaving what comes next, or reasons for what takes place, up to the imaginations of readers. Although the last sentence is ominous, indicating a not-so-happy ending.

As I own the other currently published installments in this series, I’ll definitely be continuing, especially as there’s a TV series based on it in the works.
