Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
I will start of by letting you all know that this book could be looked at two different ways, and because of that I did lower the score a little bit and it still gets a 4 out of 5. The first way to look at this series is in the first half you get 2 stories that do more to explain the world in which this takes place, but then in the second half it is strictly based on the main character. While the stories that show off the world are fantastic, I didn’t see how they really helped in the overall storytelling. Now that I got that out-of-the-way, I LOVED this book. The artwork was solid throughout, and I liked how Abeleda didn’t seem to shy away from the more adult subject matter. Carson crafts what I would describe a more adult take on Super Hero Horror Drama. I know that is a mouthful, but it really does sum up everything that is in this book. You have horror elements at the beginning when the world is being described, but then you move into the world of the heroes and the main character. I loved the dialogue, I loved how the heroes were portrayed and overall I loved this book. I can’t say this would be for everyone, I think people who like The Boys would really enjoy this one.
