Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Chronicling the youthful adventures of beloved TV characters can be a lot of fun, and this retro spin-off makes the most of its premise. In Devil's Advocate, author Jonathan Maberry captures the essence of Dana Scully and adds some new characters for her to react against. The solution to the book's central mystery may seem too easy for some readers, but there are enough successful plot twists to satisfy the most demanding mystery buffs. There are also some dangling plot threads, just as there were on the TV show and in the movies.
