Ex-Purgatory by Peter Clines
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I'll be honest, this one reads like a pretty damn fun side story in the shape of a full novel rather than a careful-continuity continuation of the first three novels.
That's not to say the first three weren't self-contained, because they were. This one felt, at least for a grand majority of the writing, to be a massive retcon and then an interesting alternate-reality reset.
It was neither, but that's what it felt like. Trying to figure out what was going on was interesting in its own right.
It was good.
But if I had to put all four books in a lineup and be asked to pick the one that doesn't belong, despite having very recognizable MC's, I'd have to call this one out.
Fortunately, it didn't lessen my enjoyment.
