Epithet Erased: Prison of Plastic
In this world, a lucky few are born with special powers based on a single word. That word is called an “epithet.” Each epithet is linked to the user’s soul, and no two people have the same one. By tapping into their word, epithet users — the inscribed — can do amazing things that ordinary people — mundies — could only dream of!
After a long week of dealing with criminals, wizards, and panic attacks, 12-year-old Molly Blyndeff returns home to the toy store her family owns and operates for some much-needed rest. Unfortunately, her superpowered older sister, Lorelai, has other plans in mind. After a nasty argument, Molly and her friends end up trapped in a world created by Lorelai’s epithet, “Augment.” Now they must travel through her wonderland in order to confront Molly’s bratty older sister… and the only weapon they have at their disposal is Molly’s considerably less intimidating epithet, “Dumb.” The road is fraught with danger, with everything from ogres to spelling tests standing in their way… but the thing both sisters are most afraid of is the idea that they might never be close again.
Prison of Plastic is the official continuation of the beloved web-animated series Epithet Erased, which can be streamed in its entirety on YouTube and VRV. This sequel is the story of two sisters in a broken home struggling with their magical powers, themselves, and each other.

Honestly at first I was hesitant to even give this a shot, I was a hard core fan of the animations and was really sad to learn that Prison of Plastic was just going to be a book. I rely on visuals for storytelling which is why I tend to stick to stuff like cartoons cause I struggle to read/listen to books, But the way Brendan wrote the characters and described them helped me have a perfect picture of what was going on in my head. I absolutely adored this and ended up accidently binging it all in one day. I laugh and cried multiple times in this I give it a 100/10 and can't wait for the continuation.

An Emotional Rollercoaster
Hits you right in the feels, then right in the funny bone, then keeps alternating. A fantastic ride all the way through, then leaves you with an ending that's practically begging to be explored, setting up any continuations beautifully. 10/10, would recommend, especially to anyone who loved the original Epithet Erased animated series. With a full returning voice cast, JelloApocalypse himself narrating, and a handful of individual illustrations for key scenes, it doesn't take that much extrapolation to imagine the events of the book in the animation style of the animated series, so being in book format does the series no disservices.
