    Seriously, the biggest compliment we can give this series is the wait for the next part will be excruciating. Read Full Review

    The ending to Ether: The Copper Golems #5 is perhaps not what devoted readers wanted, or indeed expected. But, there is a dark grace to it as Kindt elegantly shifts gears during the course of the issue. Read Full Review

    Ether: The Copper Golems has been a very fun series but the ending issue doesn't quite stick the landing for me. The twist with Golden Blaze sets a delaying action, which is fine, but the flow of events just feel overly stacked here. The action in the first act is fun and I really liked what we got out of Boone and Perdua toward the end hit a certain sweet spot for me in storytelling and visual design. Rubin gets a lot of great stuff to work with here and showing us the turn for the worse toward the end just adds to the excitement. I'm uncertain where the third book will go overall but I'm anxiously looking forward to more of Boone's adventures with the rest of the gang. Read Full Review
