Well here we are: Saga: Volume Three. Some really crazy things happened in this one! The Will, Gwendolyn, and Slave Girl landed on a planet to repair their ship before continuing pursuit of Marko and Alana. But the planet's food infected them all, trying to get them to stay as hosts for some sort of parasite. The parasite appears to The Will as The Stalk; he almost listens to "her," but at the last minute decides to continue pursuing Marko. Or at least that is his plan, until Slave Girl stabs him in the neck by order of the parasite (appearing as her mother). Gwendolyn, with the help of Lying Cat, figures out what's going on. Finding The Will almost dead, she realizes the only person who might be able to heal him is Marko. So she heads to Quietus where she knows he will be.
But of course, Prince Robot IV has already beaten her to Quietus. He arrives in the home of D. Oswald Heist, the author who wrote the book that inspired Alana in the first place. Heist claims he wrote the book for a quick paycheck, trying to cover for the fact that the fugitives are already in his place (and have been for a week!) Things go horribly wrong when Marko's mother tries to save Heist from the Prince and Gwendolyn and Lying Cat storm in.
Volume Three is another interesting romp by Vaughan and Staples. I can't wait to see what happens next!!!
*As of September 24/15, I am not taking any more requests from authors to read their books. I currently have too many books to read. I'll update this if/when that changes.*
I currently have 164 fiction books just sitting in my room to read (although that doesn't stop me from randomly picking books up at work or buying them on Kindle!). I've been keeping track of them on a paper list for years. This blog shares what I read as I attempt to get "the List" down to a more manageable number.
If you'd like to know what books are on the List, check out my Goodreads shelf devoted to them - it's my physical list digitized! I've also got a shelf for every book I've reviewed here on this blog.
Not everything I review here is actually on the List. Some books come from the library, some books are nonfiction (which are not included on the List), some books are on my Kindle (which have never been included on the List), and some books are given to me by friends and family.
Note: as of April 12/14, I am not going to add the *spoiler* warning I used to when I'm giving away details of books. I want to talk about the books I've read in whatever detail I'd like. So if you haven't read a book I'm reviewing, you might not want to read the review.
