Taylor hooked me immediately with the problem that needed to be solved in this adventure. The rising sense of horror at what happened felt very visceral, and what’s even better is that the threads that came about to create this situation were beautifully laid in previous installments of this series.
The time travel adventure itself also struck a fantastic balance of just enough detail to immerse myself without leaving me desperate for more information or bogged down in unnecessary info dumps.
Despite the seriousness of the situation, there were some literal laugh out loud moments. And I’d say that Max and Leon can stop being so damn cute any time now, except that’s a lie. Max and Leon’s relationship will always be one of my favorite things about this world.
