Book Review: The Dragon's Return
Book 2 in The Zodiac Legacy Series
AUTHOR: Stan Lee, Stuart Moore, Andie Tong
GENRE: Urban Fantasy, Superheroes
PREMISE: The Zodiac team struggles as their lives become more difficult...
MY REVIEW: I've mostly been pleased with Marvel and DCs attempts to break into the book market. They're going about it in smart ways. This book is just one example of a job well done.
Now, like the first book, this is incredibly fast paced. Also like the first book, I honestly wish this had been a graphic novel series instead of a book series. I suspect as a graphic novel it might have taken off a bit more. Because it is written much like a graphic novel where there's lots of action and a very fast-paced plot. But little character development. Though this one did try more then the first, so there is that.
This one is obviously mostly aimed at the younger crowd. For them, it'll probably be a very entertaining read. If you know younger readers looking for some action books, I would definitely recommend this to them.
WHO SHOULD READ: Marvel fans, comic book fans, younger readers
MY RATING: Four out of Five zodiac signs
