My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was a slightly disappointing end to an otherwise great little series.
It definitely seems like the dreaded deadlines got the better of the Dodsons at some points in the book…especially on page one…which is a shame, especially considering how delayed this was in coming out, thanks to COVID-19.
As for the writing, it was good enough, just nothing particularly special. Everything seemed to be wrapped up a little too easily. I guess this mini series was never going to radically alter the status quo for any of the characters in it, and I’ll be surprised if the fact that Franklin’s now living on Krakoa ever comes up again (especially as he’s currently still with his family over in the pages of Empyre).
This series was at its best when it was exploring the friendship between Franklin and Kate Pryde, and we didn’t get enough of that, in my humble opinion.
