Review - Genrenauts: The Complete Season One Collection by Michael R. Underwood

Genrenauts: The Complete Season One Collection by Michael R. Underwood

Overall Review

5 out of 5 gnomes

Overall this is such a strong story and each episode pulls you right in and makes you wonder what’s going to happen next. I think it would make for a heck of an interesting TV show or movie, it all feels very cinematical. It was also great to follow such a diverse group across a myriad of multidimensional stories. I sincerely hope that their will be more episodes to read ASAP.

Here are my reviews for each episode all in one place:

Episode One: The Shootout Solution (Genrenauts #1) -

Now, this, this is a fun series. Talk about story-tastic if that's a word. The world building is awesome and you get immersed right away. This diverse set of characters makes for a fantastic read. Jumping into different genres is fascinating and the Western world was a good intro to this whole concept.

Episode Two: The Absconded Ambassador (Genrenauts #2) -

Space-opera awesomeness. This second mission is not ideal for Leah but she get's thrown right into it anyway. This space world and its politics are very complicated. It all felt realistically like how one of these space stories would go.

This story felt like it was going to go a different direction but then it ended. So I am curious to see what the next episode entails.

Plus now I am extremely curious about Roman and what his whole backstory is. I have a feeling that it's one heck of an intriguing story.

Episode Three: The Cupid Reconciliation (Genrenauts #3) -

Romance World makes for a nice soapy type read. All the romance tropes are out in full force. The mystery of why the breaches are getting worse continues and this time Mallery gets added to the mix more.

Seeing what the genrenauts have to do to push everything in the right direction is fun. Plus this ends very interestingly and leaves you wondering about future relationships.

Episode Four: The Substitute Sleuth (Genrenauts #4) -

Crime/criminal procedural world was intense. Some great new twists are thrown into the mix. It was great especially to learn some more about King. Leah continues to grow into her role as a Genrenaut. Relationships continue to improve too. A big bad villain seems to be shaping up. Their problems are definitely not over.

Episode Five: The Failed Fellowship (Part One) The Shadow of the Night-Lord (Genrenauts #5)

Fantasy world at last. This story was fun and full of twists. I like the role each Genrenaut had to take. Leah is definitely in the zone here. You can tell some crazy repercussions are going to happen ASAP. That ending too, what a cliffhanger.

Episode Six: The Failed Fellowship (Part Two) The Heroes of Fallran (Genrenauts #6)

So, so good. Adore all the twists and turns. Epic finale befitting of this epic fantasy.

After the ending of the previous episode, I was very happy that this one picked up where it did. Just when you think they’ve gotten through most of their troubles then, WAM everything might be changing for the worst.

That ending makes for quite the future set up. Cannot wait to see where Leah and the rest of the team go from here.
