Brink and Tainted round out that contrast, but I confess to not enjoying Brink as much as I typically enjoy anything Culbard gets his mitts on. From the beginning, the whole thing has been very chatty, and I'm still waiting for it to break away from that and offer something more stimulating. I think this happens with stories handed to Culbard at times, but even though his style is interesting enough to carry the pages, Brink feels impenetrable. I constantly have the urge to go back and read the last few in order to feel like I'm really absorbing the story. Sometimes, I don't mind putting that kind of work in. At least this far into the story, however, it's unclear what warrants that much investment on my end as a reader. Read Full Review
