    This final story in what will become Volume Three of Books of Magic, once again proves that Kat Howard was the perfect choice to give Tim Howard life. Tom Fowler has been an excellent steward as well. Really, the whole team, including Carpenter's covers have been top notch. Read Full Review

    While the storyline writ large wasn't one of my favorites of the series so far it did offer up a lot of great stuff in terms of visuals and moving the whole thing along. It put Tim into an interesting place to work with, really wearing him down int eh cold, and it got him to step up in actually asking for help and figuring out a hard solution. I liked Rose's role in all of it as well but am hopeful we see more of Cecilia going forward and some changes for Tim in what he's doing and what he's actually capable of. There's a lot to like here but I'm still in this place where I need to see Tim less unsure of his place and more staking out of it and moving forward. Read Full Review
