After escaping from Quietus Alana and Marco just want to find somewhere safe to raise their daughter, now they're in hiding rather than running for their lives they're left to deal with all the normal family pressures of raising a toddler. Alana is working long hours in a job she hates trying to earn enough money to support them while Marco is a stay at home father who adores spending time with his daughter but misses his wife. Their relationship is strained and they both make some stupid decisions so it remains to be seen whether they can work through their issues. Meanwhile Prince Robot's baby is born and kidnapped, Gwendolyn, Sophie and Lying Cat are searching for a cure for The Will and his sister is out for vengeance.

I'm not going to lie I found this instalment of the Saga series hard to read at times. Marco and Alana both make some stupid choices and there were times I just wanted to shake some sense into the pair of them. Marco almost makes the ultimate mistake and my stomach was actually in knots when I was reading those scenes but that just goes to show how invested I am in this series and how much I care about the characters. Hazel is even more adorable now she's able to interact with her family and I love the family's new pet, Lying Cat and Sophie continue to be favourite characters and even Gwendolyn has grown on me over the last couple of volumes. I'm totally addicted to this series and can't wait to see where the adventure takes us next.

A few of my favourite scenes:
