Eulalie holds the life of an otherworldly infant in her hands. Desperate to keep it safe, she finds refuge in an abandoned cabin taken over by hunters, who also seek relief from the worsening storm. While these men offer shelter, food, and companionship, they ask for something in return. For they view the ever-shifting snow as a herald of great change in the nation, and their minds have succumbed to the icy embrace of winter.

    I won't lie, Black Stars Above #3 is strange and a little confusing at times. This issue is wordy, especially with the journal pages, but everything works together to set the tone. If your jam is fast-paced monster fights, this is probably not for you, but if you like something that slowly sets you on edge, check this one out. Read Full Review
