    Things continue to move forward and we see some of what the Herald is up to and acquiring from within the temple. There's more to learn to be sure and they're still not compelling villains, but we're at a place now where Vildar and Tey are working together so I'll take that as a win. And Vildar even helps to reassure Matty that she's definitely the right person to be doing what she's doing when it comes to helping others and the bigger fight here. It's a generally solid book in moving events forward and sticking to either Vildar or Tey and with them together it feels a bit more cohesive. There are some areas where Messina's art doesn't click too well, though some of that may be the color designs, but overall it all gets the job done. Read Full Review
