An interesting mi**spoiler alert** I randomly picked up Saga at work the other day, and was able to read it over my lunch break and it’s really good. An interesting mix of fantasy and science fiction where winged humans are ruled over by humans who are more robot than flesh, and they’re fighting fae creatures in a centuries long war that shows no sign of ending.
The narration is interesting too. It open with the lead female, one of the winged humans, giving birth to the child of her fae lover, and it’s actually the child that is narrating the story for you from a gown perspective. The safe thing to assume here is that the child is all grown up and this is her telling you her story.
My only complaint is that there seems to be an issue with the timeline that hopefully is explained later. See, mum and dad are obviously fighting on different sides of the war given their species. She winds up working prison detail where he is eventually dumped. As far as we know, they have never met before that date, but twelve hours later they escape together, and three months after that they’re married and she is heavily pregnant.
Yeah. Kinda weird. But like I said hopefully this will be addressed and cleared up in later issues.
I love the artwork, and the story is really cool. From these two star crossed lovers, to the bounty hunter couple sent to track them down, to the radio-headed robot prince and ghostly baby sitter, Saga is anything but a dull read. Can’t wait for the next one....more
**spoiler alert** Now this is the Raccoon City I know and love.
Welcome ladies and gents to the third book in the Resident Evil series, City of the Dea**spoiler alert** Now this is the Raccoon City I know and love.
Welcome ladies and gents to the third book in the Resident Evil series, City of the Dead, based on the Resident Evil 2 game.
Here in city of the Dead, we are introduced once more to Claire Redfield sister to Chris Redfield, and Leon Kennedy. Both arrive in Raccoon City for their own reasons, Leon because he is a rookie cop starting the beat, and Claire in search of her brother. But what they find is more than either one of them is willing to handle.
Raccoon city is full of the living dead. Shuffling zombies searching mindlessly for new, fresh flesh to devour. The entire book is the pair of them evading the dead and trying to save those few who they find living in the catacombs beneath the city after the Umbrella Corporation mucks up yet another experiment.
You know, you think they would learn eventually. Viruses that turn people into zombies is a BAD thing! Stop experimenting already!...more
