My Thoughts

It has been quite a while since I have read the first two books in this series. They were visually so pleasing and interesting in its own world and way that I needed to continue on with this series. I find these so easy and light to read, since it takes me a lot less long to read them than it would take me to read a normal novel. By clicking on the picture you will be redirected to its page on Goodreads.

In general, I would recommend this series for anyone who is interested in finding a graphic novel to start with. It has many fantasy and sci-fi elements to it and for fans of these genres this might be the perfect, refreshing read. However, it contains explicit language and can be a bit inappropriate at times, so keep that in mind.

Please do not read any further than this if you have not read this book or the first two in the series. I am trying to keep this spoiler-free, but it would be a little weird, wouldn’t it?

Again in this volume, I have to say that I really adore the artwork. The style of the drawings looks very beautiful to me. On the other hand, the rough lines and sketches deliver part of the story. The way they came up with the looks of the different characters is so fresh and intriguing to see.

It’s the mix of very creative elements with normal, maybe even everyday life elements, that makes this especially interesting to me. Like we have it at the start, there’s intergalactic places with dangerous situations and then a few pages further there will be the investigation of a mother about the whereabouts of her daughter. And then again, vomiting on an infant. Easily as that. Weird as that.

This volume, thinking about it more deeply, felt harsh and intense while reading it. No character was at ease, which was quite understandable considering the whole universe is at war. No one is save and they know that. Every character is bad or bad-ass in their own way. There isn’t yet a fully good character, no one that saves everyone from being harmed. I am interested in how this will move on with the plot. In my opinion this was worth 3 out of 5 stars.
