reading through this series in order, and with no issues missed, has been a joy--but now I'm up to Volume 7, which contains the much-loved 'Judas Contract' story, a highlight.

Titans Vol. 1: The Return of Wally West
Titans Vol. 1: The Return of Wally West (Rebirth) - Dan Abnett,Brett Booth

This didn't really feel like a good point to jump on if you're not familiar with Wally West. Although the name suggests this is a team book, this first volume is really all about Wally with the other Titans as supporting characters. Wally has reappeared after being stuck outside of time and everyone in his life forgetting about his existence. He is able to get his former team to remember him, but is unable to do the same for his former wife, Linda Park. Most of the book has the Titans trying to discover what exactly happened to Wally.

 

Wally's my favorite Flash (thanks in large part to the Justice League show), so I was happy to have him back in action, but I haven't really read much that featured Linda, so all the scenes about how much he missed her fell flat for me because I just didn't have any emotional connection to the two of them as a couple. His scenes with his friends worked much better for me because I'd read plenty of stories of them as a team. I'm not just how everything would work for someone new coming in because a good chunk of the story relied on nostalgia. However, the ending gives me hope that the story will be moving away from looking wistfully back at the past and instead focus on moving everyone forward.

 

It was great seeing the Titans back together, but I need more than nostalgia to keep me interested in the story. I'll definitely be checking out the next volume to see if we'll be getting a true Titans series that spreads the focus across the entire team.

BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Sonora, and the Eye of the Titans (Sonora #1) by T.S. Hall
Sonora: And The Eye of the Titans - T. S. Hall
Sonora, and the Eye of the Titans is a young adult fantasy, in the similar vein of Percy Jackson. Allora is growing up as a 'normal' girl, whilst at the same time knowing that she is a Sonoran and having private lessons in magic and fighting. Also, it took a while to figure out just who knows what they are, and who doesn't. This book seems full of opposites - from being normal and Sonoran, to the love interest who likes Allora but is with someone else when it starts, and then agrees to go to the Prom with someone else! And of course, you have the quest that half of the adults won't admit to, whilst the other half encourage.
 
On the whole, this book is well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow. The changes from one scene to another can sometimes feel a bit disjointed, but nothing major. This felt like a young YA read to me, which is not a negative comment in any way.
 
The story concludes nicely in this book, whilst definitely leaving you wanting more. Recommended by me.
 
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *
