Raiders, Vol. 2 Reviews
This was a slightly less impressive volume because there are a few leaps of logic here. Irel tries to meet up with Grace, his mentor’s daughter but Lamia and Clarion also catch up with him there, not to mention Detective Chris. He’s the one character that I’m having real trouble with. He seems to be convinced Irel is a murderer but his actions are what bother me. I don’t expect accuracy in these things but he’s so un-detective like (except maybe in the Hollywood sense of things) that I don’t find him believable. Long story short, Clarion and Lamia are doing so much damage to civilians that Irel feels guilty. After he gets Grace out of the way, he goes back and offers himself to Lamia. Apparently drinking the blood of Christ makes you very self sacrificing. This is the second plot hole. The first volume did have Lamia crying at the idea of having to eat people to keep up her zombie state but she does nothing else to make her a sympathetic character so Irel’s actions are a bit hard to swallow (no cannibal pun intended). But it does make some sense for him, Lamia and Clarion to team up to find the rest of the Chrism bottles. What makes me a little leery of Irel’s naiveté is Clarion keeps saying Lamia was a cannibal before she was cursed so I’m not sure she’s the woman Irel seems to think he might be able to save.In the meantime, Detective Chris, injured in the attack and Grace are now on the run from Britain’s secret service who are out to destroy Wiltham’s research and kill the people who know about it. Irel’s after the chrism bottles. Chris is after Irel. The villains of the people seem to be after everyone. And there’s a zombie Jesus joke in here taken to the next level… I’m still enjoying it but the plot’s a little loose for my tastes. Lots of action, almost too much. There are more fight scenes than plot in a few places.
