    This second issue really develops the story and leaves us with a fantastic cliffhanger. We also see Lady Qi'ra's ruthless side come out again when Cadeliah questions her about the plan. Qi'ra pretty much says that she is prepared to let Crimson Dawn die if it sees her fulfill her mission. Read Full Review

    I'm really not sure what to make of this series yet and it's likely not until we see the fallout from it that we'll be able to judge it. I really liked the idea behind Qi'ra and Crimson Dawn when it was first introduced but the whole crossover we had with her and the auction reduced a lot of my interest as it was all just too public and not terribly engaging. I get why her fight as it is and why it's public as it is, but it's not clicking well at this point. This issue smooths out parts of it for it to move forward but it's still playing in such a big way that it's feeling disruptive to events overall even though I know it's not. There's so much crammed into this period at this point that it's making me leery of everything happening. Plus, I still dislike Kho a lot so seeing their goofy self here getting involved in the Fermata Cage over a cloak just rubs me the wrong way. Read Full Review

    We hope that these pacing issues are intentional and a payoff is on the way that makes the journey worth it, even if the book itself isn't necessarily disappointing from either a writing or artistic perspective. Read Full Review

    This was solid enough and worth following if you are into this story. Read Full Review
