The mysterious Man in Black returns, this time escorting a bunch of stranded passengers across a dangerous wasteland. The book as usual is filled with unnecessary sentences, bizarre weather patterns and the ever-enigmatic D wielding his flashing sword and sarcastic Lefty. The latter is chattier than ever, voicing his opinions in front of everybody. What’s even more puzzling is that nobody sees fit to mention this voice coming from D’s lower hip or even to respond to it. Is it a willing deafness ...more

SPOLERSSPOILERSSPOILERS:D. Showed up to a group of shipwrecked travelers including an odd child, suckling, official, sheriff, another hunter, a gangster, and a woman, in the middle of traveling to a job.

I dunno if I was the only one, but I was left wanting at the end of this book. I felt the ending area or about last quarter to fifth of the book felt rushed and not as detailed as most of the books. Now I know several books have basically just ended with D going "I'm D" and just kicking ass, but really that was mostly at some of the earlier books. Might just be me but I felt I needed about 5-10 pages more in the last quarter to help the book.

Kikuchi redeemed himself with this instalment. It is a simple and clean-cut story without pointless running around like the last time in Tyrant's Stars. It has diverse characters that get stuck together in a situation they are not prepared for, and their life's motives are revealed reasonably well.

Although the author only ever mentions in his postscrip the vampire films he's watches and the like, but I wonder if the tentacle Elder God named Clulu is actually inspired by Lovecraft's Cthulhu.

There is not as much purple prose, so it's not as funny. And nothing really special happens. More of the same, really.
