Review: They Also Serve

They Also Serve
They Also Serve by Mike Moscoe
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A fitting finish to the trilogy, and a far more enjoyable read than the prior two books in the series. This one really showed character development, maturing the characters into what I grew to know and love in the Kris Longknife series.

Review: Runaways, Vol. 3: The Good Die Young

Runaways, Vol. 3: The Good Die Young by Brian K. Vaughan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An interesting conclusion to the story arc and some very well handled character growth greeted me with this volume. Maybe the writer is getting better at writing these characters, or maybe I am just getting more used to his style since I have been reading other books he wrote, but the overall story and character development actually seems to be improving. Certainly not a bad thing, and definitely what it takes to keep me coming back for more. Now, if you will excuse me, I have the next volume sitting on my desk waiting to be read…

Review: Y: The Last Man, Vol. 2: Cycles

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The first volume sold me on trying the next volume. This second volume sold me on the series. If the writer can keep up with this level of plot development and character development then it will have been a very worthwhile read. This book really gave us a deeper look at the various driving characters of the series, and really did some fantastic character development work. The overall plot line continues to evolve and develop, giving us a look not just at the characters and how they deal with their environment, but a deeper look at the environment and world around them. Seeing how people adapt to a global catastrophe is a very interesting thought experiment, and the writer is handling it rather well. I am definitely looking forward to reading more in the series, and I can only hope that the writing stays at this level or improves.
