Alex scarrow best known for his TimeRiders (Book 1) series, and also for his adult thrillers A Thousand Suns, The Candle Man, Last LightAfterlightOctober Skies. The one thing that Alex has been consistent with is his great characters.
Each person is brought to life very quickly, with a very honest human quality, never given an ability or set of circumstances that the every day person could not deal with.
Its this approach that makes all his books grab you from the first page to the last.
Ellie Quin is no exception, i have to say that i draw some comparisons with "The Ballad of Halo Jones" the 2000ad classic tale, but don't let that put you off, its not a classic for no reason, its one of their iconic tales. But Alex does take the concept in a different direction.
Some might wonder if this is a tale for teens? or just girls. But I'm a 40 year old man and i enjoyed it very much....(does that say more about me or the book...i leave that to you).

I give you none of the story, as its too easy to give spoilers... but suffice to say its worth a download (its free for the next few days, and then still only £1.99 after that..

A great continuance of the first book where the characters are steadily filled out and the gripping drama leaves you feeling that the book was too short . I am relieved to see there is a 3rd book already available and more after that I hope.

I'm enjoying this series, but it might have been nicer to just read the book as a whole rather than in 4 pieces - 4 individual stories with an overall story arc would suit this episodic style, but this is just a book split into 4 parts. I understand authors doing this to bring readers in with free part ones or cheap episodes etc, but I'd be happier just reading this in one.

If you've read and enjoyed book 1 (Ellie Quin Episode 1: The Legend of Ellie Quin (The Ellie Quin Series)), then you'll be wanting to read this without any prompting here - the story follows on nicely from the end of the first, and continues in the same style. We start to get more involved with the people now hunting for Ellie, and know she's part of some secret experiment - but with no detail yet.

The book as a whole has me hooked, and I'm almost done with part 3 now - it's a good read, and I'm sure there's something big waiting in part 4 - but I think I would have preferred proper individual stories for each episode.

Thoroughly enjoyable.

Okay, I am not one for reviewing in Amazon that often, so the fact I am rushing to review Ellie Quin says something. I am tempted to gush. Instead I am going to try and explain why I am loving this book so much.
Many years ago I used to read a British comic called 2000AD, home of Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog and co. One of the comic strips I most enjoyed was `The Ballad of Halo Jones' the story of an ordinary girl who wants to `get out'. It was written by Alan (Watchmen, V for Vendetta, From Hell) Moore as was enchanting. Totally different to most of the stories in 2000AD at the time and I loved it. I kinda fell in love with Halo Jones a little bit.

Eventually I grew up and started reading Heinlein, Niven, Clarke and all the other sci-fi greats.
Now, in my 40's I have kids of my own and my eldest is a Time Riders fan. I like to read some of the books my kids read so we can talk about them. I loved the Time Riders., so when I found out Alex Scarrow wrote more adult books I had to try them out. It is fair to say I am a Scarrow fan.

Then came Ellie Quin.

I bought the first instalment yesterday. I just finished reading the third, and I am gutted I am going to have to wait for the next part.

First the inevitable comparison.

Yes, Ellie Quin is a similar concept to Halo Jones. The universe is similar, the themes are similar, the fact Ellie meets a young confident woman to help her and inspire her. A lot of it feels similar. But that's about it. In the same way that Max begins his journey in Starman Jones (Heinlein), or Paksennarion leaves her home in Sheepfarmer's Daighter (Elizabeth Moon). But once her journey begins things are different. Her journey is unique.

A good yarn and well written. Sympathetic characterisation and although the episodic format gives itself to cliff hanger endings it doesn't feel contrived or formulaic. Waiting now for Episode 4 - come on Alex, get scribbling.

If the 1st book was an introduction of Ellie,then part 2 is best described as her quick rise to adulthood and an introduction to the real world.Her relationship with Jez[the Obi Wan to her Luke Sywalker] is always entertaing ranging from comical to down right bizarre at times,you wont believe the situations they get themselves into...and to top it off behind the scenes there lurks a plot that may literately take them both ?? out of this world into the dangers of space ??

oh and after you've read it,you might just want to go out and by that special someone a futuristic bunny costume :@)
