My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mercy comes to a stunning, disturbing and not altogether happy ending.

This series has been great and I fully intend to get the collected edition and reread it at some point, as I expect that I’ll understand it better and get less confused without breaks between issues.

There are some fascinating ideas explored in this series, particularly in regards to morality and forgiveness…and the necessity to accept that life and people are imperfect and the need to move on and accept.

Oh, and there’s a whole load of freaky gory monster stuff too.

I have to confess that the part that most excited me was the final page teaser of the sequel series, Merciless, coming in 2021. I shall certainly be picking it up!

When I posted my review of #4 I didn’t realise that Mirka and I were following each other on Twitter (it’s a small world after all) and now I’m acutely aware that there’s a good chance she’ll actually read this…

So it came as a huge relief to me that this issue was exceptionally good. The plot continues to thicken as Lady Hellaine very quickly marries Gregor, supposedly so that she can get her hands on the mine. But, you know, given that Lady Hellaine is really a hideous, otherwordly plant monster, it’s maybe not as simple as that.

The art continues to be quite simply gorgeous. I actually ended up buying two copies of this and have the Tony Daniel variant cover too, which is lovely…but I find myself always preferring Andolfo’s covers to the variants (but don’t get me wrong, Daniel’s cover is stunning).

I’m very much looking forward to sitting down and rereading this in one sitting, as the wait between issues often leaves me struggling to remember what just happened, and I’ll probably buy the trade paperback so that I can do that.

Anyway, in case you hadn’t got the idea, I really love this book and I can’t wait to read the final part!
