BAD THING: Most of the book is exposition - both of a group of random scientists explaining how apparently aliens are responsible for the creation of Skartaris and Jennifer Morgan explaining the rules of magic and the bond between siblings and... *yawns*
GOOD THING: When the action finally DOES get begin, we're treated to some wonderful Mike Grell writing AND artwork.
The Final Verdict: We're winding down to the end and it shows. It seems that Mike has been forced to tell a saga in a sentence and most of what he wanted to reveal about Skartaris in the new series is quickly being explained as we are rushed to a final issue. At least Mike's art is as great as ever.
