    Cole is what you’d call a “salt of the earth” type. He works hard, loves his girl, and feels best when he’s being useful – which makes being injured particularly frustrating. When the others go off exploring and leave him behind again, he’s finally had enough. With Naveah as his accomplice he sets off to find answers of his own, and ends up learning more than he wanted. This episode broke my heart. Earlier in the series we got a glimpse of what Cole lost by dying, but this episode is all about Cole. And we get to really see the pain that he’s been carrying around with him. No one in the group has really respected Cole the way he deserves, being that he got injured so early on and has been struggling with his recovery. He understands the need for the group to leave him behind, but that doesn’t make it any easier. Especially for someone that had to take care of so much in life, and work so hard, to then feel so helpless in his ReMade life. By the end of this episode you wonder if Cole wished he could go back to just feeling useless, rather than being faced with the harsh reality of truth.ARC received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Read all my reviews on http://urlphantomhive.booklikes.com This was an interesting episode, but it still didn't answer the most pressing questions as why these kids were chosen, how do they get to be alive while they are all actually dead. I feel we're close to the answers (it's only three more episodes) but I've been saying this for some episodes now, so I wouldn't get my hopes up. The story now focuses on Cole, who's been injured early on in the season. His backstory was rather sad, and made me like him more (at first I was more or less distrusting him). I do wonder if we'll keep getting backstories right to the end, because sometimes they slow down the story too much and I'm expecting a grande finale here. Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

    I really liked this book, or let's say the first episode. The characters are interesting & the idea is good. Would like to read more of it & see what happens when they reached earth.

    Thank you to SerialBox for providing me with an ARC through NetGalley!This episode was interesting. The protagonists in this one are Cole and Nevaeh. Cole is tired of simply sitting around waiting for his leg to heal, therefore he and Nevaeh decide to explore the city. They end up in a huge building that turns out to be some sort of a museum?! Cole learns something devastating, but tries to keep a straight face in order to protect the others. I did feel sympathy for him, but Cole and Nevaeh are not my favorite characters. Along with the others they'll probably figure out what happened to Earth. We are still left with unanswered questions though. Why were they chosen? Where are they? What is their purpose?The story was okay. But the main plot is not progressing, because it deviates and focuses only on backstories. It is important to learn about the characters, but there are only 3 episodes left and something big will happen! It will 100% end in a cliffhanger! The writing was really good! The flow was good, the descriptions were vivid and it had you turning pages! So, 3 episodes left and the question is how is season 1 going to end? Worth checking the series out! I only gave this 3 stars, because of my disinterest to the characters, but it is REALLY GOOD!

    I finally finished the most recent episode of ReMade and we finally got some answers. Or some semblance of answers. They look like answers. Ok, actually, I just have more questions. Couldn’t admit out loud that they were all dead, and even if they figured out how they’d gotten to the future, there was no past for them to go back to.Modern. History. Let that title sink in within the context of all we (don't) know about this world. In this episode, we get to explore more of the ReMade world through the eyes of Cole, who has been in the background. I'll admit, I was curious about him and unsure if I was going to enjoy spending a whole 30 pages with him.I totally did.More than ever, it's clear the ReMades fit together because they have unique talents for the team. If this were a video game, you'd want one of each of them for their skills and personalities. Cole brings the hard work and loyalty aspects of human nature to the forefront like no one else does. His story of becoming a ReMade is made 10x more tragic by what he sees when exploring this strange world.

    This one follows Cole, who is so different than all the others. He's a young father who has lived the country life. He's the one who lost more than any other. I feel for him. His leg is finally starting to get better. No one wants to let him help though. They are still worried about him. So he and Neavah go looking around on their own. They find something that made me want to hug Cole and tell him it was going to be okay. Cole found a system that let him see when his girlfriend died and his son also. I don't know how I would have made it through that moment, I would have lost my shit. He's taking this as well as he could but I just feel so badly for him. This serial is moving in a much better direction and I'm now enjoying it a lot. Thanks to NetGalley for this title in exchange for an honest review.

    Review also posted at: http://underthebookcover.blogspot.com...3/5Thank you to NetGalley and Serial Box for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for review!This episode absolutely broke my heart. While it didn't feel like it really fit in with any of the other episodes, I think it was a really humanized episode and readers were able to learn some fairly heartbreaking news about Cole and some interesting news about where (and even when) the group is. I definitely feel that the series has somewhat plateaued and I'm a bit concerned with how the final three episodes will go. There is a lot that can happen, but the past few episodes have felt very slow and I really hope that they will pick up with some action and tie up any loose ends that have been introduced!Cole is tired of being left behind due to his injured leg, despite him insisting that he feels better. He's ready to get out and explore the new city they've found, and he's not waiting any longer. With Nevaeh in tow, he sets out to find answers about where they are and gets more than he bargained for.I didn't find myself enjoying this episode as much as some of the earlier ones, but I was definitely sympathetic towards Cole and found myself wanting to give him a big hug by the end. He's certainly a lot stronger than I initially thought, and I hope that he's able to find his niche eventually. Nevaeh, I still don't particularly like, but I don't dislike her either. I feel like I don't exactly know enough to really from an opinion on her, unfortunately. There are certain characters that I prefer and that I feel like I've gotten the chance to know better than Cole and Nevaeh, but I still did enjoy this episode as it mostly focused on Cole. His backstory is adorable and put a smile on my face, although his death is sad, and what he finds out later on in the story is absolutely devastating. It was so hard to watch him be strong and try to act like he didn't know anything, but I understood that he was doing it to not only protect himself, but his group as well.Something that this episode had me questioning was why were these kids/teenagers chosen? With only three episodes left, I'm starting to hope that we get some answers as to why these specific people have ended up where they are, where and/or when they are, and what their purpose is. There were some semi-answers that were given in this episode, but not enough to fully explain the situation. As I stated before, I feel like the series has reached a plateau, where things aren't happening that either progress or regress the story line. With that feeling in mind, I am hoping that things pick up in a dramatic way in the next episode and that the last episode doesn't end on a huge cliffhanger.Despite me not necessarily enjoying this episode and feeling rather indifferent about the characters, I did like the writing of Carrie Harris. I was definitely able to sit down and fly through the pages while enjoying what was on them. This author also wrote episode seven, Mourning Train, which had Nevaeh as the narrator, and I had the same feeling of while I didn't necessarily enjoy the character, I did enjoy the writing. I liked that it was descriptive and flowed very nicely, while giving a good but surprisingly sad backstory on Cole. Her appealing writing style really helped me continue on with the episode despite my neutral feelings towards Cole and Nevaeh, and it has gotten me interested in checking out some of her other books!Modern History provides small answers and small insight into the current situation, but has some very enjoyable writing that will take your emotions on a roller coaster ride from start to finish. With only three episodes to go, I'm insanely nervous about where the plot is headed and just what kind of crazy things are going to happen by the end, but I'm very eager to see everything come to a close! Be sure to pick up ReMade Episode Twelve: Modern History on 30 November 2016 to continue your ReMade series read-a-thon!

    All of my reviews of ReMade are more plot based than my normal reviews, so they are all a little more spoilery than usual. I recommend checking out my review for the first episode before reading on! Well this episode definitely provides some really interesting speculation and finally solid facts about the world. So BIG spoiler – 100% all dead. So ‘ReMade’ is definitely about these poor souls being created for this future world. 100% well in the future. 10,000% still no clue why they are here or how they came to be here.We get a lot more heartbreaking with Cole’s backstory. I mean what a good, decent, and loving man. My heart breaks in a thousand pieces for him.I’m pretty positive that this series is going to continue to dole out some more tiny morsels – aka answers – but I can feel the big cliffhanger coming!So dead, remade, and … a future without any more humans. That’s my guess, each ReMade has a purpose and a skill to help rebuild the human population.

    This episode is interesting enough to be released as a short story. The writing style is very visual and immersive. The human element is strong in this installment.My issue with it is that it doesn't exactly flow comfortably as a successor to the previous episode. The two central characters in this episode are very different from how they were introduced and depicted in the previous episodes. After this installment, there are only 3 episodes left in this season. I believe this first season will end with a cliffhanger. If I were to use episodes 1-12 as a barometer for plot and pace, it will be impossible to cram a series conclusion within 3 short stories. To keep an audience connected to this series, I suggest that YouTube clips be officially released that will contain back stories, deleted scenes, aerial view of the setting, etc.As always, SerialBox provided me with an ARC via NetGalley. Thanks SerialBox.

    I'm starting to get so invested in these novellas it's ridiculous. The story line is great and always keeps you guessing. The authors still find a way to make it cohesive and for you to care about the characters. More answers, more questions, as with every installment. I would recommend this story. 5 out of 5 stars.

    *** I would like to thank Netgalley, Serial Box Publishing and the author Carrie Harris for sending me this digital copy of Modern History in exchange for an honest review***Cole used to live in a farm, he was a hard worker. He talks about his son and girlfriend, you can tell that he really loves them. I'm liking Cole he seems cool, responsible for his age. At the moment he's still hurt from the accident with the Caretakers. He feels useless and wants to help the group out. Without telling the others Cole and Nevaeh go check out the city, and find a building that contains images, holograms and more Caretakers. They kind of start to figure out what that place is and what could've happened to the city and the earth. We're finally getting answers. :) But I do feel bad for Cole, he misses his son and girlfriend and he's kind of giving up :( Cole's story was touching, you feel for the guy. But I am glad that we are finally getting a picture of what this place is. Everything was a mystery at first, I like getting clues of what's going on. I think there's still a lot that we don't know. I am looking forward to seeing what happens. ***

    AS SEEN ON: A THOUSAND WORDS A MILLION BOOKSI received a review copy from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. I'm not really sure how to review this episode, or what to say, but it was filled with one emotion: Pain. I opened this episode the minute after I finished reviewing the previous one, We're Dead In This Ghost Town, as there was a "Next On ReMade" attached to the end of it that promised a museum with answers attached, and I couldn't resist.And now, I'm just shocked. I have no idea what to say, or how to review this episode without spoiling it, because this is ESSENTIAL to the plot line. Everything up to this point had just been a guess, but now the team finally got answers about where they are, why they're in this place and what happened to the lives they remember.This episode was written in a new viewpoint, Cole, who's leg was injured in the Caretaker attack a bunch on episodes ago.From the minute he started narrating, I knew Cole was someone easy to fall in love with. A reliable person, an young father and hard worker, I adored him and then FELT every inch of his pain as he did.I'm not going to spoil this episode, I'm only going to say HOW SAD I am that I don't have the next episode ready to read, because ReMade is turning out to be better than I ever expected, and I NEED MORE.A fast paced, pain filled rollercoaster that I can't wait to ride again. 4 stars.

    Book 12: Modern HistoryStar rating - ★★★★☆POV – ColeWould I read it again – Yes** COPY RECEIVED THROUGH NETGALLEY **FINALLY! After all of this time, we finally get some answers.Cole isn't a character we know well, thanks to other (less deserving) POV's taking over the bulk of the storytelling, but it was great to finally learn a little bit more about the Father-figure of the group. His story and the way he learned more about it at the museum they found was so heartbreaking.However, yet again we're given more questions than answers and, honestly, this felt like the shortest episode so far. Not much happened except Cole's exploration to the museum and although it offered a hint of an explanation of what is to come, it didn't tell me nearly enough of what I wanted to know.

    Well, now I know the highlights of Cole's life. And my heart breaks for him. I hope he can start thinking of creating a new life. If they are supposed to be the last human beings and it's up to them to make things right, my question is.... Why them? What is so special about them? But maybe it's not about that at all. I still don't know the whats going on and I don't think, with just three episodes left, that there will be a conclusion soon. But I really enjoy this series and can't wait for the next one.***I received a copy of the book via NetGally in exchange for a fair review***

    Received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Episode 12 of 15 in series 1. The survives have made what they are calling the Red Cross building their temporary base. They decide to explore the city some more and look for supplies. Cole and Nev go off together and find a strange building full of holograms. What can this building be? What are the holograms for? What will the others think? This instalment was at a slower pace than the others which is ok.

    Oh, Cole. You really rub me the wrong way. But more mystery city exploration, yay! The museum is fantastic - though I'm getting terribly impatient for more answers, now.

    We. Have. ANSWERS.Okay, not really. Some, but not really enough to count, I suppose. Y'all know this has been a HUGE frustration I've had with this series. Modern History picks up with Cole who's kind of been in the background and now it's time to hear his backstory (which, by the way, is so heartbreaking).But here's my issue with that: we're still learning character histories.It's the twelfth episode of fifteen for the season. And instead of moving the story ahead, we're getting backstories. Granted, during the course of this episode, Cole and Nevaeh go off exploring and find a museum that seems to detail some of the history between their deaths and the period of time leading to the present.I won't spoil where they find out they are but I will say that I sort of expected it. Though the authors have worked to potentially misdirect readers from thinking it's THIS PLACE, it comes out more in these later episodes.Now I didn't like this episode as much as the last, but I liked Cole more than most of the other characters. He's not like them and it made this episode seem a little... off, compared to the others. Not in a bad way, just different.But we're three episodes from the end and I can't help but wonder if we'll ever learn why these teens in particular were chosen to come back from the dead, and so far in the future as well. I have a bad feeling that last episode is going to end on a cliffhanger to encourage readers to check out the next season but I'm not sure if I can sit through another season where my questions are never answered...
