This is going to be a super short review because this volume was pretty consistent with the first, which is a good thing, but it doesn’t give me a whole lot to say. I liked all the same things that I liked in the first volume—beautiful art, three-dimensional characters, great humor—so really what’s not to love?
I did find it easier to keep up with the plot this time though. I wasn’t confused by the politics or the different creatures the way I was before, so it made for a smoother read.
I also loved the way Marko stood up to his own mother when she said something bad about Alana (and what really made it great was that it had nothing to do with getting brownie points and everything to do with how much he valued her).
The Will also had some great moments, but I have plans to talk about him in my next review, so I’ll save my thoughts on him until then!
The series is definitely worth continuing if you liked the first.
