Blog Tour: Preceded by Chaos by M Wheeler


I would like to thank the publishers for sending me an arc copy of this book in return for an honest review.

Preceded by chaos is an illustrated short story.  I can't believe how much I really liked this book.  It is so original and has such a fresh outlook on story telling.  It really is unlike anything that I have ever read before and probably ever will read again.

Initially, I had trouble getting this book onto my kindle and ended up reading it on my laptop instead, which gave me a much better view of the illustrations within the book.  This book gave the main character Mitchell a great introduction and really showed the stresses and strains that working in Emergency Medicine can bring.  Mitchell is at a point in his life where he feels a little bit, a feeling that most people will get at some stage in their life and a feeling that I myself have been familiar with in the past. 

There isn't too much that I can say about this book without giving too much of the story away.  Preceded by Chaos is short, sweet and to the point, taking the reader straight into the story.  I adore that the story is told through illustrations, as this is such a fresh and innovative way of story telling, and one that I hope will catch on more in the future.

I didn't expect to love this book, but more and more recently I'm finding a love of new genres and I am reading books that I would not have considered reading in the past.  I am so glad that I decided to take a chance on this book.  I am also delighted to find that this is the first installment in a series.  I am so looking forward to getting my hands on more books in this series, as I love this way of story telling.
