So, in this installment we learned about Omri/Loki. This one tore at my heartstrings because of the story line, but it was still very worth the read. Some bad choices were made and we learned a bit about the world again. I loved that there was a bit of a review starting on this serial. That's really, really helpful. I would recommend this book. 4 out of 5 stars.

Another episode, another backstory... (This really seems to be the formula of the series).

Episode four focuses on Loki (not his real name) and how he ended up in the complete mess everyone's in at the moment. At the same time, some dangerous predators are lurking in the shadows.

It was an enjoyable read, but somewhere I was glad it was so short. The backstories sometimes really pulled me out of the story instead of providing more bonding with the characters.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

This week, we get to know Loki, a young man who escapes a reality of bullying through video games, only to find his bullies have followed him there.

My friends, this is one tough and intense episode. E.C. Myers addresses a topic not broached often enough - the bullying of boys. We see a lot of references to the "mean girls" in our society but the bullying of boys is something that we need to talk more about. Loki (which is his online screen name) faces intense online bullying from a boy he used to call his closest friend, something he doesn't feel comfortable telling his parents about because what if they take away his only escape? Their reaction could make it worse for him, too. Though not implicitly said, it's implied that the bullying took a toll on Loki's mental health and was a factor in his death (much like other cases - have you watched Audrie & Daisy yet?).

Someone had hit reset on his life, and Loki could be whoever he wanted to be.

As with each of the previous episodes, The Most Dangerous Game is an insight into the unique qualities that Loki brings into the afterlife? other world? Loki brings strategy to the table, something he's clearly developed from playing video games. This becomes a life-saving thing for the team.

ReMade reminds me of how the Avengers movies were set up - where we got to know several characters and later they became a team. Each episode seems to be leading toward them working together to figure out what in the heck happened upon their death and how they can move forward.

Loki's got layers ... and I'm still wondering about what, exactly, happened in his former life.

This episode was a serious letdown. I thought that it would be fun to read an episode centered around a gamer but, honestly, this episode only brings gamers down. I used to play a lot more than I do today, however, even at my height, I wasn't like Loki. Gamers can have (and do have!) normal lives, we don't sacrifice school because of games. (well, at least most of us don't)
