After a series of natural disasters has wrecked the planet, society, and the ecosystems of the world, a group of environmental activists tries to figure out what to do next.
As this is the first book in a wholly new series, this issue does some light storytelling with an emphasis on introducing us to a few of the characters and the world we will now inhabit. As such, the judgments I make are a little broader than you might get in a book where we already have a relationship with the characters. In a cliché, I liked this book. The characters were interesting and seemed to be approaching the few situations I saw from several angles apiece. The premise was really cool, although, I must confess that I am a bit of a sucker for a mild apocalypse tale. The writing is impressive, smoothly bouncing between flashbacks and the present while maintaining dramatic tension in each. I also like the art here. There isn’t anything too in-your-face about it, which has been Wood’s tendency in the past, and it really serves the story well.
All in all, I liked this book a lot and I look forward to seeing where this story takes me.
