Fourth Dimension The Rule of Three #4Th their camping gear packed and ready Emma and her family canoe over to the islands just offshore to wait it out But while they land on an isolated island with a relatively hidden site they are far from safe as people become increasingly desperate to find food and shelter And as the days pass and the power remains out the threat of violence becomes all too real. So I've read a few Eric Walters before but none of his Rule of Three series This book is set in the same 'world' as the Rule of Three series but is not a part of that series Or so I understand It's post apocalyptic although what actually happened is never explained Other than that it stands alone uite well I didn't feel like I was missing anything The story itself is good engaging and fast paced the heroes are very heroic the villains are very evil I read it uickly and enjoyed it It seems to be the beginning of a new series as its ending left lots of room for

Fourth Dimension tells the story of a small Marine family trying to survive after a complete technology blackout  What starts off as the family annual camping trip uickly turns into a dog eat dog world as violence ensues when humanity realizes life as they knew it has come to an end  Arming themselves with their mother's military experience their camping supplies and limited connections the family sets out to do whatever they must to surviveI think the concept of this book is really interesting  The complete loss of technology would surely result in a world fallen to chaos  There were a few key points of this decent that bothered me  Firstly the violence and desperation started within the first twenty four hours  I've been without power for several days and at that point nobody starts looting and shanking each other  The author's predilection to violence as a reaction was dramatic  Yes violence would likely occur eventually but I didn't see his timeline as realistic  And things kept going at the same speedUnfortunately every character see here is very flat and emotionless  This concerns me most about our protagonist Emma  Where the story started off with great family dynamics Emma uickly falls forward as her mother's eual and confidant even though she's still a high schooler  Not only is she encouraged to learn to defend herself fine she is also urged take a life to protect their community and eventually asked to lead the military training of the teens  Through it all Emma is remorseless  That bothers me just as much as the fact that their mother has no protective instinct to her children and either leaves them to their own devices or trains them to kill  It just doesn't seem like a realistic relationship in the dynamic we were given at the beginningThis book is overriden by dialogue  The parts where we settle in and learn about the community through Emma's observations are alright but at other time the characters will have a conversation about  The Hunger Games that serves only to allow Willow to say Emma reminds him of Katniss  Flipping between long descriptive stretches and uick uippy conversations threw the flow offWhere the concept of  Fourth Dimension is interesting I just don't buy the execution  The island is made it or LARPers magicians thespians and grandmothers and yet it is the strongest and most thriving community in the area and is attacked often  Attacks are always repelled  I appreciate the fact with have a parental character with a military background because I don't think I've run into a Marine in YA fiction before but the idea that she is single handedly protecting this community bent on living hedonistically is so unrealistic to me Fourth Dimension had a lot to offer in theory but the storyline characters and writing style didn't work for me  I think that people who enjoy YA fiction and military fiction will enjoy this book If you're looking for something character driven with relationship or intense world building look elsewhere

The units around them So Emma isn't particularly concerned when the latest blackout hits just as they are preparing to leave town on a long weekend camping trip But then the car won't start and their cellphones appear dead and all the cars outside their building seem to be stalled in a long traffic jam In the midst of what appears to be a massive power outage wi. This book attracted me with a great premise but lost me once it fell into the rut that made me stop watching The Walking Dead holy repetitivenessI've never read Eric Walters before but the premise of this kind of apocalyptic world sounded so promising In the end I was left underwhelmed bored and disconnected I was left with several uestions that didn't leave a feeling of satisfaction in finishing For instance we never learn what caused the loss of power to the world The central theme of the book and it is never answered After I started reading this I learned that this is some sort of companion novel to a trilogy that is centred in the same world Maybe that one answers what happened but the lack of an answer in this one really irked me when I hit that last page Not only that but the way this story ended was so abrupt and peculiar that I was really left disappointed Considering there was no power and the world was going to hell I didn't get a sense of what should have been high stakes In the beginning I definitely got that vibe of the world falling apart and the worry that came with that but it lasted about a uarter of the way through the book What killed that vibe was the main character Emma's mother and the general convenience of how things worked out for them as a family Ellen is a former marine and her attitude rubbed me the wrong way She had an answer for everything how to get clean water food travelling around There was no challenge to their survival Even when dealing with other groups of survivors her demeanour came across as a mix of passive and manipulative Now I know this is your place and we want in but we're not going to come out and say that but you need to defend it but I'm not going to tell you how because this is your community but I have ideas But I won't tell you because it's not my place Over and over In keeping with such high stakes and danger I felt very little connection to the other people in the story They were mainly strangers to Emma that she saw in passing and that translated to me They had no names no important role They suffered they died and I felt nothing Emma remarked on it in no heavy terms and as such it went right over my head Even with the people Emma did care about that died I gave no thought to them Mainly because I couldn't remember who on earth they were As I mentioned earlier I stopped watching The Walking Dead because it got far too repetitive The creativity was gone after the first few seasons There are only so many zombie attacks and battles with other communities you can sit through before it gets boring The same goes for this story It fell into a pattern of attack defend peace for a bit meet a new group repeat The creativity was lost once I got halfway through which was disappointing On a side note I finally understand how annoying it is for a reader when there is an abundance of exclamation marks on a single page This could have been great The writing was nice as was the imagery but the plot events and the characters left me wanting 255
