I wanted to pick this one up because of the cover and it had high reviews. Unfortunately, I felt like the character development was lacking and it was just very slow-paced. I need something that is going to keep me engaged and this just didn’t do anything for me.
I did at least like that it starts after the heroes jobs are finished. They did what needed to be done and moved on with their lives. You don’t get to read about that very often.
Overall, this just wasn’t for me but it could be for you! The illustrations are well done.
