I've been looking forward to this as I really enjoyed Aurora West's first book! This is a continuation of the story as she concludes the search for the killer of her mother and continues training to be her father's sidekick and one day replace him. A rip-roaring adventure with lots of action, humour and fabulous art. Great characters return from the first book. But also quite a serious theme and heavy topic that deals with heroes having to believe in themselves, when to tell the truth versus when not to, and there sometimes being a right time to die and a right time to kill. Very deep, high impact from start to finish and a stand-out adventure with tough female leads.
