Collection is a series of volumes that follows several once-ordinary people as they are thrown into their now abnormal lives. Vampires, aliens, time travel, flight, superpowers - if you have any of these, then you will become property of the Collection, an underground containment facility that makes sure the world of the unknown stays unknown. But when Jerry attempts to transport himself through time, a freak storm wreaks havoc while a meteor shower fast approaches Earth.
Aliens, dragons, vampires, superpowers...everything that shouldn't be known is on the Collection's collection list.

Disjointed and poorly-narrated
This story felt like a committee got together with a bunch of different ideas for what the story should be and decided to include everyone's ideas to make them happy. You've got dragons, vampires, aliens and secret government agencies to name a few. While the author does try to tie it all together, nothing is every really well-established enough for you to get a full grasp (or even care) before you're whisked off to something else.
Sadly, the same goes for the characters. Aside from Mr Sun and Moon, I can't really remember any others. They mostly sounded the same due to the narration (except for Mr Moon -- I'm not even Asian and I'm slightly offended by the stereotypical manner in which it was read) and no one really stood out
Speaking of narration, though Matt Jenkins has a voice that's easy-enough to listen to, he tends to read everything in an exasperated quiet sort of yell. Most people sound the same and the intonations seem to be way off from how the text reads. Sadly, I don't feel he helped the story any.
This book was provided to me for free in exchange for my honest review. If you want a fairly mindless romp, then it's short enough to provide some entertainment, but don't expect anything thought-provoking.

Asteroids, Aliens and Vamps, Oh my!
This is a rather strange little story which is clearly intended to be the introduction to a continuing series about a group of friends who get mixed up in a strange reality of alternate earths, vampires, supes, aliens and big rocks hitting the earth. It's a bit hard to follow and keep all of the characters sorted out although I suspect that might get a lot easier as the series progresses.
Anyway, it's an interesting read if you're a fan of that streamer conscious gamer literature that's so popular these days.
