Desperate to prevent a war, the lands call together a council of Kings (and we know that didn't go well last time). Meanwhile, Jon Hunter and Sir Ferenc investigate a murder in the castle, the trail of which leads to a new conspiracy. As the conflicts escalate, Elizabeth leads Helena and Sara on a mission to uncover the secret of the burning fields. This leads her to a startling revelation and the specter of a new threat rising. And when she's confronted with a harsh reality, how far will Elizabeth go in the name of blood and magic? Dynamite's latest fantasy epic is building to a fever pitch in "Reign in Blood"!

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Sep 30, 2014

    The Blood Queen #5 is a strong step in the right direction for a new epic. The franchise has planted quite a few seeds along the way and it's going to be interesting to see how the creative team handles them in the future. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    There continues to be a number of things being juggled, but Brownfield again keeps it narrowed down in each issue to smaller focuses that tie and connect elsewhere. Read Full Review

    This series has been one of my biggest surprises of the past year, and it is one of the few series which I look forward to coming out. While it is flawed in some minor ways, for fans of either fairy tales or fantasy (or both) this is an excellent series to get into, especially as it is still close enough to the start of the series to find the other issues.

    With the art catching up to the plot, this has a lot of potential for the Game of Thrones fan set. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Oct 1, 2014

    This book's slow burn of a build-up is now causing this title to smolder. Read Full Review
