Wow. Saga: Volume 4 takes place a bit after Volume 3. Hazel is a toddler now. Alana has been working for the Open Circuit, which seemed to be a television network. The troupe wears costumes, so it was a safe place for Alana to make money. Unfortunately the hours are long and she gets involved in drugs, pushing her further and further from her family. For his part, Marko tries to give Hazel a normal childhood. He signs her up for private dance lessons with a woman who likewise has a distant husband.
Meanwhile, Robot Prince IV's wife has their son. Not long afterwards, a Robot janitor kills her and takes the baby, intending to start a revolution. Robot Prince IV is informed of his wife's death (although he seemingly has no memory of even having a wife). He heads first to his father for help. But getting none from that quarter, he gets help from an unlikely source: Special Agent Gale. Gale sends him after his son. Robot Prince IV arrives just in time for his son to blast off in the tree rocket along with Alana, Hazel, Marko's mother, and Izabel. Marko and Robot Prince IV join forces to find their families.
Oh yeah, and Sophie and Gwendolyn have discovered a spell that might cure The Will! Now they just need to go about finding the ingredients.
This volume was awesome! I hope Volume 5 continues at this pace! (But even if it doesn't, it'll still be good!)
*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.
