That ending is heartbreaking. This is an excellent, tense read.
Black Bolt must make a decision: the Inhumans can join the Kree - or die. So they've decreed. When he sends Karnak to discuss the terms of surrender, things start getting more and more tense. Beautifully told story, gorgeous and highly stylized illustrations that match this story perfectly.
Looks like it'll be a longer arc. Lack of emphasis on Viv combined with the Weirdworld fantasy storyline aren't really engaging me. Then again, I'm psyched that the writer isn't afraid of doing something different.
I've been happy with the writer as far as characterization goes and have liked his storylines better than this. Snowguard isn't my favorite newcomer to the Champions, but she hasn't been a deal breaker either, and I think I just needed to get used to her. She doesn't annoy me, and I'm liking her a little more the more I read her.
That being said, I'll stick it out, and hope the next storyline is more to my liking. It's not horrible, it's just not my jam.
I’m going to go ahead and post the info and giveaway, (and link to an excerpt!) for this wonderful fantasy book about to be released on November 27th, but I didn’t get to review it in time because my early reader’s copy has got lost in the mail (or someone is reading it at the post office)!!
Once I have received it I’ll be able to post a review but for now, I’ll tell you a little bit more.
Thanks, as always, to my friends at The Fantastic Flying Book Club for having me on the book tour!

moonlight out of her eyes. When she isn’t dreaming up fantastical cities and brood-
ing landscapes, Lyra enjoys hiking, rainstorms, autumn, and pretending she’s any
good at painting.
She lives in New England with her husband, in an antique farmhouse that’s probably
not haunted. AMBER & DUSK is her debut novel.

Also, my finger is clearly not broken; I can bend it all the way with a minimal twinge, so longer reviews from now on - yay!
This is leading up to some pretty astounding revelations, and a huge, final fight. Basically the Unicron mini-series, which still breaks my heart, especially since I can't find any announcement of new Transformers series.
That being said, I love, love, love this series, all the way. I know there were one or two issues that I wasn't as crazy about because of the lack of humor; I feel like normally it's so well balanced, that I felt the lack of it earlier on. But overall? This, along with MTMtE has to be two of my all-time favorite series.
I highly suggest giving this a try if you haven't.
