A few starting notes:
This is a translation, from an Italian author, which blends manga-style art with Western-style art.
So, of course, I was interested enough to give it a try. ;)
I really liked the character of Steno, just because he was so damned sweet and innocent.
He was like a mini, Italian, dystopian, version of Captain America. I wanted to pet him on the head and give him a medal, simultaneously.
Oh, and I say this so much that it's almost lost all meaning, but there's gore, violence, and some swearing in this book.
Let's get one thing straight, for all my confusion - I enjoyed this book.
