This is going to be a little more eclectic collection of novels. Some of them could also be considered horror but they’re getting slapped on my paranormal list. I’ve started my first horror novel of the season, Dracula, because believe it or not, I haven’t read it.
“Nevada, 1869: Beyond the pitiless 40-Mile Desert lies Golgotha, a cattle town that hides more than its share of unnatural secrets. The sheriff bears the mark of the noose around his neck; some say he is a dead man whose time has not yet come. His half-human deputy is kin to coyotes. The mayor guards a hoard of mythical treasures. A banker’s wife belongs to a secret order of assassins. And a shady saloon owner, whose fingers are in everyone’s business, may know more about the town’s true origins than he’s letting on.
A haven for the blessed and the damned, Golgotha has known many strange events, but nothing like the primordial darkness stirring in the abandoned silver mine overlooking the town. Bleeding midnight, an ancient evil is spilling into the world, and unless the sheriff and his posse can saddle up in time, Golgotha will have seen its last dawn…and so will all of Creation.”
Is there ever going to be a volume of Saga that I don’t love? At this point, I’m not sure that they could do any wrong.
In this edition, the Brand, that girl and that ex-girlfriend (because apparently I suck at names) are on a quest for dragon semen in order to save the Will. Let’s just say that leads to quite the centerfold.
Dengo has kidnapped Alana, Hazel and Marko’s mom and he’s made a deal with the Last Revolution. A rebel group bent on destroying both sides of the war. Of course, the group just wants to use Hazel as leverage to get things they think will help in their war on the war.
Meanwhile, Marko has partnered with Prince Robot IV to find their missing children. It doesn’t mean they have to get along, but for a short period their mission is the same.
Once again, I was angered that I did not have the next volume at the ready. Soon my precious, sooooon.
The first chapter has a fun little Calvin & Hobbes feel that was an interesting/nice change of scenery. Not to mention, it actually added to the scenery a little more since the background expanded upon what was happening on each page.
This isn’t an action packed edition but I enjoyed it more than the previous two installments as it evolved around each one of the characters a little more. How each is dealing with everything they’ve seen and experienced since moving and their growing relationships.
This is also the volume where they begin to figure out exactly where the danger is emanating from, therefore introducing a new conflict/challenge altogether.
Hopping on the meh-train to meh-town. I would love to blame it on me being sick and crabby but I don’t think I would have been that impressed with this volume even if I was operating at 100%.
The only story line I was into was when Catwoman and Harley were going to bust up a dog fighting gang. Turns out, they weren’t really the culprits of the missing dogs. While it was still entertaining, I won’t lie that it bothered me greatly that the resolution involved them telling someone their dog was dead but here’s a new one that needs a home! Happily ever after. Previous dog replaced and forgotten.
There wasn’t anything particularly wrong with this volume, it just did not have a lot of story telling power in my opinion.
A continuation of girl shenanigans in college. Recontructing dresses for dances, rekindling old romances, and cramming for exams to name a few things. It’s light-hearted and fun. A solid second volume.
Still on the run, Marko and Alana are searching for the author that influenced their love. Maybe he can tell them what to do next about their predicament.
This edition has more family bonding but still enough action to keep it from lagging. I enjoy Alana’s bad ass mother abilities to fight while holding and protecting her child. The group dynamics are sassy as per usual and enemies are still hot on their trail. We’re introduced to a couple of new characters who, I feel, add an addition depth to the effects of war.
The robot prince is ever disturbing and my favorite chapter cover was definitely the romance-esque novel cover of Marko and Alana. Like, I might put a poster of that on my wall because I love it so much.
