[Here are my reviews of the other volumes.]

Marko, Alana, Hazel, Klara and Izzy are finally reaching Quietus to meet Oswald Heist, the famous author that inspired Marko and Alana’s rebellion. But Heist may not live up to his name. Meanwhile, The Will’s team-up with Gwen is still uneasy, though their goal remains the same: find Alana and Marko. And the press has also started to take an interest into Marko, Alana and above all Hazel.

Saga still leaves me breathless – it is exciting and stunning, full of great ideas and even greater characters. If you aren’t reading it yet, what are you waiting for?

I think the arc I was most invested in in this volume was the story of The Will. He pushes so many of my buttons (Let me say at this point: WHY THE FUCK IS EVERYBODY SO HOT IN THIS COMIC?) and The Brand is also really cool (see parentheses above), and I enjoyed Gwen, Sophie and the Lying Cat (awesome, awesome idea and character). So this particular subplot was just filled with favorites.

But then again, I’d be hardpressed to point out a character who isn’t a favorite here. I loved how Klara and Oswald interact. I really enjoyed the journalist couple – the two guys bring a new perspective to the story that was missing so far. And of course, Marko and Alana get all the hearts. Despite all those great characters, I still had time to wonder what’s happening with Prince Robot IV – because he’s a fave, too.

Ugh, the entire thing is just so good and exciting and beautiful. I can’t help but gush and gush. Probably doesn’t make for the best review, but definitely for the best reading.

Summarizing: *chef’s kiss*
