In graphic novel form, the story moves really fast
For fifteen years, Thomas Hunter has eaten the rhambutan fruit, and for fifteen year, he had not awakened on earth. His army is fighting a war against the Horde. There are too many to defeat. Thomas' only plan is to dream and find out how to make explosives on earth so that his army might win against the Horde.
Thomas wakes up to discover not a day has passed on earth. He and his sister are still trying to stop the outbreak of the Raison Strain. Thomas bounces between worlds again trying to be a hero in both. He works with the United States government to try to prevent the end of the world on earth, and when he sleeps, he is trying to save the forest dwellers from an equally devastating crisis with the Horde.
In graphic novel form, the story moves really fast. It's an action-packed story anyway, but if you've read the novel, you might feel like lots of stuff is missing. I also felt like there was a mistake in there, when Thomas was shot on earth, he awoke fine, then a few pages later Rachelle was shocked that he wasn't hurt. Something was off there. However, my seven-year-old son loved this one as much as the first. Beautiful illustrations. The allegory of Jesus is strong in this book. It was fun to talk about that with my son. Once I brought it up, he started noticing things too. Then, the other day, he had chapped lips and told me that must be what the Scabs had felt like.
