Monstrous

Monstress, Vol. 2: The Blood (Monstress, #2)Monstress, Vol. 2: The Blood by Marjorie M. Liu
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hm. Not sure. I might have to let this settle for a while and then re-read it in a few months. The story was complex, but did not really do much for me. The pacing felt uneven.

I was confused with all those jumps, inside and outside of memory, back in time, into dreams (I think?), etc.

Ok, the pirates were cool. I really like the more outlandish looking Arcanics in this volume. And the scenes on the island were beautifully drawn.

The monster that lives inside our heroine also grew on me a lot in this volume. Plus, just for comic relief, it reminds me of Cousin Itt.

The winner is definitely the gorgeous artwork.
