Critical Role: Vox Machina — Kith & Kin, review

As I advanced in Back to Critical Role, I've been reading a book from Critical Role, the adventures of Vex and Vax before the events of Vox Machina. This came out because I was completing the YouTube channel and saw a promotional video about the book. I immediately got curious about how the world and characters were portrait in writing, so I just went for it!

Rating: 3/5

I really liked how the present of the story is mixed with flashbacks of their past. Knowing the characters from the show, it felt like I was getting a view of multiple moments of their life, all in one book. The best thing was how the ends and beginning of the chapters segued so well into and from the flashbacks. It was very enjoyable.

The story's narrow focus was appropriate to highlighting the characters instead of the world of Exandria. By splitting them up, readers were given a chance to learn more about each character individually, which was particularly rewarding given how much of their plotline is about sticking together.

Overall, quite happy with the book. It is what it is without pretensions of trying to be what is not. Very enjoyable, would recommend for any fan of the show.
