First, can we just take a minute to appreciate how pretty this cover is? I’m completely loving Cliff Chiang’s works, and the artwork here is no exception. Vaughan’s (author of Saga) writing won’t disappoint either, which really isn’t a surprise. Volume three will make no sense if you haven’t read the previous two, so I urge you to do that if you haven’t already.

Spoiler Warning

From looking at other people’s reviews, I’m seeing that many were disappointed in this volume. I’d like to address that first. I think volume three is a build-up novel – where all the details have to be presented and set in motion before something big happens. I could be wrong, but I’ve noticed that heavy hitting authors have a tendency to do this, so I anticipate that it is the case. Regardless, I actually quite enjoyed this novel and the details it revealed.

The time travel and distortions are continuing – though some loose ends finally got tied up. The (possible?) start of the whole time travel escapade is finally revealed, though some other questions were raised in its stead. Such as, apparently humans cannot travel unshielded through time, but our paper girls troop did so successfully multiple times. What exactly does that imply? Were the different from the start, or were they made different by something else? Or is it the manner in which they keep getting pulled around that makes it safe for them?

I also find myself wondering about the cave men – what on earth where they up to? Did they have a goal, intent? It certainly appeared that they had purpose in their actions (even if those actions were pretty horrible) I just don’t know what it is yet.

The four dimensional being was also interesting – it’s implied that the being is dangerous, but at worst it seemed disinterested in the girls. Given that it may have revealed images of the future to KJ, I can’t help but wonder if it’s actually trying to guide them to do something or go someplace (or not, it could just be a bored inter-dimensional being for all I know).

I’m not really sure where volume four is going to take us, but I can promise you that I’ll be reading it to find out! At this point I’m just too curious to drop it.

About Liz

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try and artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. The facts: My favorite color is constantly changing, so don’t worry about trying to keep up with that! I’m in my 20’s, married, and looking to find the perfect job for me (ideally something that can involve my creativity or my love of animals). I have 6 cats (If we’re being technical, I have 2 cats and my parents have 4), a bearded dragon, a parakeet, and two betas. I adore all of them, and they frequently are my photography models. My blog will primarily be consisting of my 365 (366) photography project, updated daily (hopefully). I’m also working on a 52 weeks project, where I try a new type of photography style or technique each week. That will be updated as the photos are processed.
