Possible Spoilers For: Saga Vol. 1

My Review 4

Trigger Warning

Death, Gore, Blood, War Themes, PTSD

This series is soooo good. It felt like a little less was going on since it delved into origin story territory, but we need that. And it was great.

Volume two of Saga picks up right from where the first volume ended with Marko’s parents popping up and not taking Hazel and Alana’s presence well (well it’s more like the mom isn’t… the dad is great). When they’ve finally established a little peace they decide to travel to meet the author of the couple’s favorite book and introduce Hazel to the great man. Of course things don’t go well…

Like I mentioned above, this volume tells the epic love story of Alana and Marko. And I mean… Marko may make the exclusive Book Boyfriend list™ we all know how hard it is to get on that list. They’re both amazing together and i love them so much and I know shit is going to hit the fan and I’m nervous.


However, other than the flashbacks, my favorite parts were Alana/Barr bonding time. Because he’s the best stepdad. I still have yet to warm up to the mom… but… yeah that’s all I can say.

But guess who we finally meet… GWEN! Again, don’t know how to feel about her, but a friendship with Alana would be perfect.

Despite the lack of action, this is no less bloody and deaths do happen and I am the saddest. People are pushed to do things they don’t want to do and it makes me really like some characters I wasn’t really feeling in the last installment.

Mr. T.V. King is the main one I’m talking about. I like him? Way more than I thought I would? And The Will as well is a really complex character. Is he a good guy who does shitty things? I want to believe so, but with this series, you never know.

I want to talk about the plot, but not only did again things not really happen, but this is something I want you to read. BECAUSE THIS SERIES IS GOLD.
