Before the accident. Before their universes collided. Before they fell in love.
Riveting and romantic, Undone: An Unraveling Novella contains three short stories set in the world of Unraveling, the first book in the gripping sci-fi duology by Elizabeth Norris.
Before Ben Michaels saved Janelle Tenner’s life, Janelle saved Ben when he stumbled through an interuniverse portal into a completely new world. That day, he fell in love with the girl of his dreams. And he never forgot her.
Through three stories told from Ben’s point of view, learn how Ben and his friends discovered their ability to travel between worlds, how Ben first met Janelle, and how he pined for her for years before he actually got the chance to meet her, save her life, and capture her heart. And find out what happens to Ben between the cliff-hanger conclusion to Unraveling and the beginning of its heart-stopping sequel, Unbreakable.
Well, the point of views of the boys in a YA book is always interesting. And yep, I can admit that I don't really understand the depth of Ben's feelings for Janelle until I read Undone. If you read Unraveling, you can't miss this novella, not just because it's a really, really sweet and at times, heart stopping novella. It holds very important information, especially the third part of the story. I can sense that the events in Undone will definitely link to Unbreakable, the sequel of Unraveling.
Undone is better than Unraveling in many ways. At least now I can make an attachment to Ben. He always existed in the rim of the boundaries of my mind until now. He official enters my mind now. That's a good thing, because things won't be interesting if there isn't any remarkable about the characters or the book itself. He's no different from the guy Janelle first talked to. But then, what the hell? It's just a short novella.
There is an exciting part of the story. I don't know if you noticed it, but in the early summary of Undone, the third part of the story is set between Unraveling and Unbreakable. Which is... when Ben is in his home universe. And yeah, something bad happens there. Not the all-out-apocalypse-and-hazard thing. But still, it's bad. And it seems like there's a concrete link between this and the events of Unbreakable (Nah, I don't have any ARCs of Unbreakable if there is one, but the summary reveals something.)
I can't wait for Unbreakable, especially after reading Undone. Because you know what? Undone has a strong connection with Unbreakable than Unraveling does. If you have finished reading Unraveling, make sure you read this novella.
