4.0 out of 5 stars Like a good episode.
First of all sorry by my english.

If you like the 4400 tv show you will find this book very interesting. Seems to be like the pilot episode of the failed season five.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's no Stephen King, but it'll do.
This book continues the story on from where the TV series of the 4400 left off. It generally does so in a consistent manner, but some of the characters (like Richard Tyler and Tom Baldwin) speak in ways that they wouldn't have in the series. This is a major problem and is the first indicator that the writer really didn't get immersed in the world that this book is born...

This review is from: The 4400: Welcome to Promise City (Kindle Edition)
This book continues the story on from where the TV series of the 4400 left off. It generally does so in a consistent manner, but some of the characters (like Richard Tyler and Tom Baldwin) speak in ways that they wouldn't have in the series. This is a major problem and is the first indicator that the writer really didn't get immersed in the world that this book is born out of.

It starts very slowly and tries to make itself accessible to those who aren't familiar with the series, but doesn't do a great job. My main criticism of this book is that the descriptive potions are short and lacklustre, because of this the book never conjures up enough to really grip the reader. Towards the end the action gets interesting, but it doesn't make up for the monotony of the majority.

All in all, a decent book at the 3.99 Kindle price, but not worth the paperback RRP.

3.0 out of 5 stars Get ready for the sequels, 6 Feb 2010
By 
Constantin Orasan (West Midlands, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This book is a must for those people who followed the 4400 series (don't bother to read it if you did not watch the series because it will probably not make much sense) and want to find out how the story concludes. The book is not bad, but in many aspects it gives you the impression that it is written in such a way that it allows more sequels to come (as normally happens with these types of series).

The book is well written and it reads very fast. There are several gripping plots going on at the same time, but for most of them you will need to read the sequel(s) to find out everything.

So if you expect to find out in this book the conclusion of the 4400 series, you will be quite disappointed. Luckily the sequel "Promises Broken" is already out and maybe it will shed more light on what is going on, but to be honest with you I do not hold my breath that I will find out everything there

The TV episodes were great but finished too soon. This book carries on from the last aired episode. If you enjoyed the series you'll enjoy the book.

Picks up exactly where the series left off, it helps to answer a lot of plot questions, but isn't the end of the story.
