This is the third book in The Scattered and the Dead series. I enjoyed this one as much as the last two. It advances the story lines of several characters. It follows Fiona, Lorriane, Ray and Marissa. There are very brief sections with Baghead and Decker. Ray, Lorriane, Baghead and Decker are all characters from previous books.
As with previous books, the story is told through journal entries. The time line is fluid. One section may take place before the event while others take place weeks or months after the event. As you come to know the characters, it is not hard to follow.
Book 0.5 and Book 1.5 are much shorter compared to Book 1. They are not bridge books by any means. Each book is a contribution to the series, just as much as the larger Book 1. As I mentioned in earlier reviews, the universe is unique in a way I have yet to be able to define. The Scattered and the Dead universe is more real. Possibly because it is told from many points view, possibly because the characters are from such different backgrounds and personalities.
I highly recommend The Scattered and the Dead series. If you have not started it yet, now is the perfect time.
