Rather confusing. I know that I should like the brothers but their situation, their background, their friends and enemies, it was all so... unclear that it was hard for me to actually connect with the characters. They were brought somewhere because of their powers and they couldn't get out and then they did and they knew how to drive a car and they had enough money to buy things and stay at a fancy hotel...

Okay, I must admit that I was hoping that there would be shounen-ai overtones to this, as the artwork is done by You Higuri, but alas that is not the case.

Spent most of the book very confused. Pictures were pretty, though.
This. Was. EPIC!!!!!! Awesome artwork. Looks like Adam Lambert!!!
