    The Family Secret #0acts as a pilot episode for this series, introducing the reader to the characters, the core relationships, the character'sabilities.Writer Justin Peniston does a solid job building this world through subtle scriptdetails, but his dialogue is clunky " especially as it relates to child heroes Carolina and Bailey. He also lays the single-mother cliches on rather thick through the use ofinternal monologue. Although it enables the reader to quickly understand the mother'ssituation, the amount of problems Peniston informs us of borders on fatiguing. The most crucial fault of all is that a script designed to connect readers emotionally with the characters fails to give the mother's name (it can be found in the extras following the last page of story). Given the light week of releases and the $1.99 price tag,I was willing to give this a chance.However, it's just not strong enough to keep me coming back for the next installment. Read Full Review
