In my last review of this series I said I was going to step away from it for awhile. I decided to read "one more" issue (#18?) and a few things happened that hinted that there was something hugely bigger going on with the story that I wasn't really grasping before. This REALLY hooked me in. Spent the next week reading the whole rest of the series. Extremely glad I made it through.

To be honest there are a ton of points in the middle of the series that, at the time, seemed drawn out with little to no purpose. Then the end hits. Like a sledgehammer to the temple. It was a good thing Kel was already asleep when I finished because I was a bawling idiot for a few minutes after finishing. This story will stick with me for a LONG time and I think I'm probably going to have to read the series again (if not several times). Mostly just to go back through those moments where I was thinking the story was moving too slowly, and enjoy them.

Note for those that don't know this series' author: he was one of the writers for LOST, and there are a lot of themes that played through this series that were also very prevalent in LOST. There is A LOT more to the story than finding answers to questions. The questions might keep you going, but sometimes it's just about enjoying the time you have with those you love.
