Interlude-Brandon: A Review

This is the third book in the Game series by Terry Schott. I reviewed the first one here and the second here.

Interlude-brandonI wasn’t sure that I’d enjoy a sort of mid series prequel, but I was so glad I was wrong. I think this is the best book of the series so far.

Without giving away spoilers there were a few nice surprises in this book and some great info about Brandon himself and how he got to where he is. I found myself confused at a few points by the events, but it’s probably because I’ve read so many books in between the books in this series that I’d slightly forgotten who everyone was.

It’s fairly fast paced again, and still has plenty of interesting action in it, although most of it is focused around games and virtual reality stuff.

I have to say though that the editing and formating leaves a lot to be desired. The last sentence of Chapter 55 just doesn’t finish and there’s two chapter 56’s, one of which is only a couple of paragraphs long and makes little sense in the context of the rest.

If all the mistakes were corrected this would be one of the best series I’ve ever read.

    I have to agree, I also have read this book, I thought it was excellent. Before I read it, I was a bit annoyed that it was a prequel and the cliff hanger from the previous book was going to go unresolved for yet another book. But I will have to agree with the placement of the book. If we knew all of the information given in the third book, the first two wouldn’t have worked as well and it’s useful to know what happened in the prequel for book 4.

    I got confused with Brad and Brandon, reading the two names (even after reading the books in quick succession) are too similar, it took me a while to figure out that the character at the beginning of the book wasn’t Brandon.
