This was the first Kindle In Motion book that I have ever read, so I was unsure what to expect. I normally prefer reading on my Kindle Paperwhite because it is easier on my eyes than reading on my regular Kindle Fire or other device, but I wanted to get the full experience of reading the Kindle In Motion book, including the motion graphics and video clips.
In terms of the Kindle In Motion portion of the book, it was fun but I think there is room for improvement. For example, a few of the video clips played before the event actually happened in the story, this was like getting a spoiler for what you are about to read. I would have preferred if the placement of the graphics and video clips was timed more in sync with what I was reading. Aside from that small complaint, the motion part of the book was interesting and I feel it kept me interested in the story far longer than I normally would have been.
The story itself is simple, almost more like a short story, and it read like a prologue to a book more than an actual book itself. It is a short read and I understand that this is an entirely new genre of book (books that have motion graphics), but I can't help but feel like this was the start of a Young Adult fiction book that never got finished, so they shortened it and added a very rushed ending. I liked the story for what it was, but I was left wanting more and from what I can tell there are no plans to continue this story past "The Protectors". Honestly, it was more of a concept for a book rather than an actual book. That said, it was well written and interesting. If you are interested in Kindle In Motion, this is the perfect book to get and try out.
