Chapter 04: The Game is Carrick
Well, OK. A couple things. Last time I was all What the? Because it seemed weird that we got this one chapter about Hugo where nothing really happened. But now this chapter is about Voletta, one of the other couriers, so I think he’s doing this on purpose, giving us more looks at what each of the characters is like. It’s kind of not like a regular book, in that respect. It’s like your’e watching a movie? Except not really, because it won’t just be one person’s (Allison’s) story. So it’s like a book that’s like watching a bunch of movies at once. Does that make sense?
Chapter 4 is called The Game Is Carrick
In this chapter a bunch of little things happen but the main thing is that Voletta goes to a place called The Clutch and plays a game called Carrick with a guy named Blue Eye, who has a sapphire for one eye, and a hand called The Hand. He is JUST A HAND. The game is really complicated and it’s got this whole complicated backstory and the whole thing is just VERY GOOD. GO READ IT NOW. I won’t spoil it by telling you who wins. :) It’s definitely my favorite chapter so far and it gets you interested to read more and see what happens. Because if this is just one little story happening in one corner of this city, what the heck else is going on there, you know? I recommend it. I feel like if you read the first four chapters of this story you will definitely want to keep reading forever.
