This book is really intense! The setting and the way things work, what things and places are, are a bit hard to understand but you catch on throughout the story. The idea of Ravants is interesting and I'm still not sure what The Magnetic Sea is. And what is the source of the kids' strange powers, like Zion's? I suppose I'll find out, but that was a crazy reveal in Ep. 5! Can't wait to read the next book!
This book had some good ideas lost in a lot of awkward charact3er interactions and the main character's backstory, his driving force for all he does in the first volume, is so brief that its hard to really feel invested.

That said, its not a bad meditation on the horror of war, looking at someone a while after the war has ended and how their life has been shaped by the events that they had to face during the war itself.

This is a graphic novel I picked up because I was interested in the plot. It appears to be about a future earth where our magnetic poles are messed up. It involves a young clone courier in the city who carries stuff through a magnetic sea. Each clone has a predetermined life span. I found the going difficult, due to changes in point of view. I don't know if it can keep me interested.

1. it doesn't get to the story (barley)!
2. the way it is written is horrible because you don't care what happenss next u just feal like going to sleep rather then reading it.
the only thing I would buy it for is the drawings.
I give this book one star becaus of the good manga drawings other then that I dont like it :l.
