You live. You love. You Die. Now RUN. ReMade is a thrilling sci-fi adventure that will take readers past the boundaries of time, space, and even death.

This is the 1st episode of ReMade, a 15-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode was written by Matthew Cody.

Holden Black never imagined his crush knew his name, much less that he’d suddenly be driving her to a party. But life can change in a second, especially when you’re 16. A look. A flash of headlights. A scream. What do you do when the unexpected jumps straight to the unbelievable, the dream becomes a nightmare, and waking changes everything except your heart’s desire?

ReMade Season One: In one moment the lives of twenty-three teenagers are forever changed, and it’s not just because they all happen to die. “ReMade” in a world they barely recognize – one with robots, space elevators, and unchecked jungle – they must work together to survive. They came from different places, backgrounds, and families, and now they might be the last people on earth. Lost meets The Maze Runner in exciting serial adventure.

I got this preview of a serial in 15 episodes called ReMade from the OwlCrate September 2016 box.

This episode is very intense and action-packed, but you have to read around half of the pages to really understand what is going on. I like fast-paced books but I feel like the author wrote this in expense of the character development and introduction. We don't know much about our main characters Holden and Seya, and I cannot relate to any of them. And the funny thing is, a character is introduced in the middle of the story and gets killed two pages later.

I think making a serial is a good idea to introduce different writers to readers and keep them yearning for more. Since the episodes are really short, I'll give the second one a try. Hopefully, we will get to know more about Holden and Seya in it.
