Hold on to your hats ladies and gentleman, this episode will throw all sorts of information at you, all sorts of weird terminology, weird technology, and all sorts of bad-assery your $1.99 can buy!
The misfit team of The 33 have hit their get the grand tour of Pramantha and what they find will completely blow your mind. Each step of the way JC Hutchins develops this world in such a way that everything that you scratch your head about to begin with all comes together and starts making sense.
My biggest complaint with the first two episodes were that they seemed too short, that there didn’t seem to be enough time to develop the characters and have the questions answered that needed to be answered. This episode alleviates that. The way this series seems to develop the characters is very much through actions and reactions rather than huge sweeping back stories that take up 100 pages. It’s all very organic in the way this is presented. While you may feel overloaded with weird terminology, like “code shaman” it will all become second nature when continuing through the episode.
When he’s not eloquently weaving in and out these strange terms he’s slowly adding layer upon layer of suspense building to the reveal of what exactly Pramantha is hiding. Hold on to your butts though, because this episode isn’t all about just unraveling the mystery, you’ll find incredible heart pounding action that will bring you to your knees trying to catch your breath.
JC Hutchins has a real “knack” for knowing what his audience wants. He’s not one of the authors that dumbs things down simply for the sake of trying to please everyone, and that’s something I appreciate.
The Bottom Line: You were introduced to this whole world of The 33 through the character of Creel. The interesting thing is that he’s no longer the center point, he’s one of the team. It was a very different way of setting things up, and it’s great! Just make sure you leave aside an extra $1.99 though. Once you finish this, you’ll immediately buy Part 4….and be glad you don’t have to wait for it. The cliffhanger in this feels like your about to slip over the edge.
I would consider The 33 a sci fi thriller combined with modern fantasy. Addison Creel, as the rookie is new The 33 and as such does not know all the jargon or the truth of the world JC Hutchins has created. Its through Creel that the readers are introduced to ground breaking technology and the tools of their trade. What could have been pages of narrative exposition instead are carefully woven character dialogue. In short order the readers become part of the team. The secondary result is the readers connect with the team. As they become imperil and their success is most definitely in question, the readers can feel the tension. I held my breath during the fight sequences not knowing who would survive.
This is an excellent story and has great team dynamics. The world crafted by JC Hutchins feels just close enough to our own to get you to think I wonder…
If you like sci fi, get The 33. If you like modern fantasy, get The 33. If you like sharp dialogue and fleshed characters, get The 33.
