You can tell that the writer is just a sad remainer who can't get over Brexit and has come to hate his own country with passion, the title for the book is uninspired to say the least.

The start of a new arc! Maika always knew that her decision to involve herself in the battle of Ravenna would have repercussions, and now she begins to pay the price. War isn't the only thing she has to fear-the political intrigue of the Dusk and Dawn Courts might be far more dangerous.

Great stuff, it is rare to find writing and art both firing on all cylinders at the same time. The current 'event' has failed to derail the fun, unlike in many other titles. The only flaw was the rather rushed 'temptation of Felicia'. This could have been extended and perhaps could be a future storyline.

Thing is, Marvel could have avoided to release this book. Initially it was planned to be a Empyre tie-in, they chose to skip it from that event but I guess they just could not let go so they made it a King in Black tie-in. I wish UK all the best, I admire the fact that you chose to assert your sovereignty.
