Review by SonicQuack
The ambiguous blurb on the cover hides a surprising complexity within. Sequence is a gritty and complex tale, requiring full attention throughout. Told from the two viewpoints (one in the future and one now, with a few 'flashbacks' sprinkled in) the story unfolds on several levels, many times and varying locations. Initially this is somewhat disorientating and almost nonsensical, however once Dawson begins character development in earnest the story becomes more engaging. Never particularly tense, Sequence's high points are sourced from the cleverly conceived and executed plot. The characters offer a little emotional pull, however Sequence can at times be rather wordy, a unnecessary distraction. Ultimately Sequence is a proper sci-fi thriller, big on theory which is well explained and with a plot that is very memorable.
