I have no idea where good reviews are coming from. Did we read same book? Anyway ...

-vampires, werewolfs - that comes out of nowhere, soon Nelson will give us dragons, elfs and griffons (oh wait a second - he did!).

-war ended in such a ridiculous way, looks like writer had never read a history book in his life or even watch decent war movie. It's so stupid - it's insulting.

-'Grail' plot - wasn't much to begin with, now it's completely disintegrated in an ocean of idiocy.

-main characters (Sauni
The plot keeps on moving the appropriate pace; great scene/double spread to end the book. The prologue story with vampires/werewolves was a little jarring. I realize this is a book with magic, golems, etc.; for some reason, I just found the werewolves and vampires to be out of place.
Increasing weirdness, but also good pacing are making for a good climax to the story. This is well structured, which I find is often a flaw in graphic novels storytelling.

The story line moves toward conclusion in this book. Dr. Saunière gets closer to finding the Grail and we learn that some people know more about his past (knowledge that even the Doctor is aware of). One other character shows us that they too will be key in the final book. The artwork seems better in this book.
I absolutely love the story but can't help but be distracted by the constant changing of artists and the look of the characters and the story overall. Nevertheless, I loved it, can't wait for the next one. Oh, spoiler, this one introduces supernatural elements.
At the moment, this is the last Rex Mundi TPB. Love the expanding of scope and how Nelson slowly reveals new aspects of his world in each volume. Love the vampires. Not sure about the cliffhanger at the end, though.

The penultimate collection turns almost everything around, introduces some new elements and generally is freakin' great. Creepy, inventive, violent, fascinating....
Still really enjoying this series and I love the artwork and detail that goes into each volume.
