As the noose tightens around the rebellions neck, Orchid arrives at an enemy-controlled outpost rife with debauchery, sin, and soldiers eager to get their hands on the runaway and her companions. Opals expertise in the department of violence and Orchids streetwise instincts come in handy but can only take them so far, as a threat from Orchids past catches up with her and threatens to bring their tiny crusade to an end.

    "Orchid" #5 is a book reminding us why we read dystopian stories in the first place -- more than just cool and unknown settings, dystopian fiction allows us to play out our worst political fears and perhaps follow characters as they pursue our personal hopes against all odds. Issue #5 is a perfect place to jump into the world of "Orchid," even if you haven't heard of the book before. Hurry up, the shops in my town sold out completely. Get your copy while the gettin' is good. Read Full Review

    That's another thing I don't understand, why the hell arethey still trying to free Simon's friend? They hate Simon and they already havethe General's mask" why do they need this guy that no one has met? There weresome definite road bumps in this issue which keeps it from hitting a four, but itsdamn close. If we did half points this book would get one. As it is though, thestory has returned to its proper form and if the kinks get worked out it willbe even better than the start of the series. The art is still top notch and theaction scenes are clear and concise which is important with action scenes on the printed page.I'm digging this series again and strangely looking forward to the next issueafter the crazy cliff hanger in this issue.
