Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Vaughan, writer of the hugely successful Y: The Last Man, isn’t one to think small. In this opener to his ambitious new series, bits of sf space opera and classic fantasy mesh in setting a sprawling stage for an intensely personal story of two lovers, cleverly narrated by their newborn daughter. Though recently soldiers from opposite sides of a massive intergalactic war, moth-winged Alana and ram-horned Marko simply want peace and anonymity to raise their daughter (an abomination to the powers that be) away from conflict and hatred. Vaughan’s whip-snap dialogue is as smart, cutting, and well timed as ever, and his characters are both familiar enough to acclimate easily to and deep enough to stay interested in as their relationships bend, break, and mend. While Vaughan will be the star power that attracts readers, do-it-all artist Staples is going to be the one who really wows them. Her character designs dish out some of the best aliens around, the immersive world-crafting is lushly detailed and deeply thought through, and the spacious layouts keep the focus squarely on the personal element, despite the chaotic cosmos they inhabit. Add another winner to Vaughan’s stable of consistently epic, fresh, and endearing stories. --Ian Chipman --This text refers to the paperback edition.

BOOKLIST (STARRED) -- Vaughan, writer of the hugely successful Y: The Last Man , isn't one to think small.

3.0 out of 5 stars Comparison of vol. 1 & book 1 editions
By Steve + Gabri on April 27, 2021
I discovered this series last week & love it so much I ordered the vol. 1 as a test reader then ordered the hardback book 1 version as soon as I was done speed reading the test one.

So I love this story to bits, can't wait to duve into my new fancy hardback one.

Now as for the quality of the individual versions book 1 wins hands down. The vol 1 is great for an introduction into the series at a low cost. It's nice & large. But the print quality is meh. A lot of paled colors (which I thought had been the theme until I cracked open the book 1) & double printing on the lettering that makes it a wee bit difficult for my bespeckled eyes. The binding is good, it's sturdy, & pretty lightweight.

The book 1 has stellar quality, it reminds me of the quality of a few "art of studio ghibli" books I got a few years back. The corners of my edition are a bit roughed up, but I honestly think the vacuum sealing did it & it's too minor to request a replacement. The colors are bright & vivid, the lettering crisp & clean. Love it!! Will be getting the other 2 as soon as I speed through this one. It is heavy but it's like 13+ of the individual versions as compared to the vol 1 which I think was like 6ish.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's definitely worth the hype!
By AmazonCustomer on January 4, 2017
Two star crossed lovers have a child and end up fleeing from their worlds to fight the odds and raise their child. Alana was supposed to be guarding the prisoner, Marko, but neither agreed with the war and ended up escaping. While on the run they fell in love, got married, and had a child named Hazel. Because they are wanted, they have two people hunting them down. The Prince with this tv head (who isn’t all that interesting to me and parts of his story are in my opinion not needed) and another freelancer. As they run, they’re able to defend themselves and when they couldn’t they had the help of a local girl.

My only gripe with his volume was Sextillion. Right… I think this story could have honestly done without this part. I felt it was a little cheesy and didn’t see the point or how it could really benefit the story. Maybe that will be answered in some other way in future volumes, but it think it was a bit much. Definitely had some mature content if you haven’t picked up on that yet!

Otherwise, I can’t believe I waited so long to pick this up. After hearing for so long how much everyone raved about this it was time I finally got into and now I’m sorry I waited so long! I loved the story line (minus a few pieces here and there), the characters, the mood, and the art is really pretty too. The story is such an interesting premise. It’s strong and relatable. The characters are also strong. They’re a bit stubborn at times, but also fierce and loyal and you can’t help but love them and what they stand for. The art helped pull you in and created the feels and moods especially with the colors used. I’m obsessing over this at the moment. The instant I finished I knew I had to continue. Amazon Prime two day deliver won’t be soon enough!
