So this is more a 3.5 in my world, I liked it, up till the end. It does feel like the start of a series, but then I'm not sure where it will go. The writing for the most part was strong, though it did get "choppy" for the lack of a better term. The time line switches also were a little difficult to follow. I love the premise, and hope it is the start of a series as there are so many unanswered questions! The end left me wanting more of an explanation, was he caught? was it all in his head? was he really free to go find elena?
