Story

After a dramatic time jump, the three-time Eisner Award winner for Best Continuing Series continues to evolve, as Hazel begins the most exciting adventure of her life: kindergarten. Meanwhile, her starcrossed family learns hard lessons of their own.

Taken from goodreads

This volume takes place a few years after the volume 5, this means that Hazel is now in Kindergarten instead of being a toddler, it also means that her mum and dad (Alana and Marko) have spent that time trying to find her in order to have them back together as a family. The two made a vow that they wouldn’t even kiss until they find their daughter and if you are familiar with the series yet then you will know that this is broken along with all their other vows they have made as a married couple. It is great to see the pair being back together and working towards something as it was so strange seeing them apart in the previous volume as I think they made the best possible couple.

Of course with have got Hazel and her grandmother who are together in a prison, Hazel is finding it hard to settle into the new environment as she has got to lie everyday about what she is. While it is the opposite for her grandmother as she has found somewhere where she thinks she belongs along with all of her knew tattoos. It is not till Hazel finds someone she can trust does everything seem to go wrong for her.

We have got The Will back in this volume and there is a bit of difference with him but I will allow you to read the book to find out what is different. He is on a mission to try and kill Prince IV so is following his tracks. It is on this adventure that he comes across the two reporters Upsher and Doff who are trying to find where Marko and Alana are. It is strnage to see these three together even if two of them are being kidnapped as I never saw the three of them ever meeting.

Overall this story is very action packed and does give a little bit more limelight to the lesser seen characters such as The Will and Hazel as they get a bigger part. Not only that but Hazel starts showing the audience just what kind of person she is going to become when she gets older and it is great to see just how she is going to grow up. It is not my favourite volume in the series but I still think it is very good.

The art is amazing as always as it just gives the story something extra to make it going from being great to amazing. The art makes all the characters in the book look amazing and it makes you look forward to them being in the book again as it brings back seeing them in this great art work.

This is a great series and having this good volume added to the addition just makes the series even better.
