I CAN'T BELIEVE I WAITED OVER 12 YEARS FOR THIS... This is a sad day for fans of The Pretender. The creators have tainted the memory with rebirth. I'm heart broken with disappointment. I read some of the other low rating reviews and didn't want to believe the book could be that bad. The book is worse than I feared. I don't just "not like it" as the one star suggests. I hate the book. I've been a fan of The Pretender since its pilot episode, I've watched waited and I and every single TP fan deserve so much better than this. I read somewhere that at least rebirth is fast paced and isn't an overblown epic like that of a best seller author whose name I won't use here. I differ. Rebirth isn't fast paced and is way overblown with hype. I wanted a continuation and ending. That best seller author is best seller for a reason...

If it's not broken, don't fix it, that's the saying and unfortunately, Reboot is broken. Try to show your support some fans would say and to them I say that I've shown my support for more than twelve years and believed the creators when they said they would give us a continuation in some format. This isn't a continuation. This is a badly written begin-again. I'm a fan of the old version of The Pretender, the series, the classy Miss Parker, the emotions. I am not a fan of this reboot, I won't buy another novel or graphic novel. I'll watch my old dvds and remember the good times.
