Review:

I really liked the artwork in this book.  It’s extremely well put together and I felt the variety of characters was impressively done.  That would almost put me over the edge to four stars, but I really struggled with the plot.

Though provided as a book, I felt the story was fragmented too much.  I only had the barest sense of where the story was going to be going and not enough to make me feel completely invested.  I was also disappointed with where the story was cut off because it felt awkward without having had a conclusion to at least the mini-story.  (Typically I’d expect a mini story as part of the over-arching plotline.)  Once more of the story comes out, I may continue with it, however as a standalone I was somewhat disappointed.

Warning: Contains some violence.

Rating: 3 stars!

Who should read it? Folks willing to be patient for the whole series to come out.
