With this book The Sword swings into high gear, offering the first of 3 apocalyptic battles against Dara's foes. The first half is quite slow as she and her friends track down the first killer, the water-controlling Zakros but once she does the action never stops.
The Luna's really think through their own story, giving both Dara and Zakros impressive powers but with limits, and the battle is choreographed like a movie with the action flowing neatly from panel to panel, scene to scene. It's a major improvement over the usual American comic where people swing their fists while reciting their life story.
My only real complaint is that, like another reviewer, I had the cover come off in my hands during my first reading. If you see this in a store make sure the binding is solid.
I like the overall expanding story, with more information given about the history of the siblings. But the plot runs on lots of coincidences and contrivances. When Dara and friends make it to Miami they can't afford a regular ferry ticket but they happen to meet a family that's going over on their private yacht. The family eventually recognizes her as that crazy woman from TV that killed her family and a bunch of other people, but just in time some pirates attack the yacht. Dara is able to subdue the pirates and they escape, suddenly making the family trusting and helpful.Read more ›
