Synopsis:
The smash-hit ongoing epic continues! Thanks to her star-crossed parents Marko and Alana, newborn baby Hazel has already survived lethal assassins, rampaging armies, and alien monstrosities, but in the cold vastness of outer space, the little girl encounters something truly frightening: her grandparents!

I don’t know why it took me so long to read volume two but I’m loving these graphic novels! I don’t recommend this one for younger readers. If you didn’t know that these are intended for adult audience… well now you do.

The story takes from the last book left off and Alana, Marko and their baby are still not safe. I really love how these have romance and action. In novels action can be a little boring at times but I didn’t get bored even once during reading this.It was very interesting to see some flashbacks about Marko’s childhood and about the beginning of his romance with Alana. Hopefully we will have some flashbacks about Gwendolyn in later volumes.

Just when I thought I wouldn’t like these graphic novels more Alana gushes over a book and has a secret book club with Marko!

I forgot how much I like the lying cat. I almost bought a pop figure about him a little while ago but I was too poor.

The only thing I didn’t like in this one was that I didn’t understand everything, like with that book’s writer. All in all very good read, though!
