Just for die-hard Coheed & Cambria fans.
I love Coheed & Cambria, and I'm quite confident in saying that they are easily one of the best musical acts of our time. The mythos behind the music is equally amazing and entertaining. Unfortunately, this book demonstrates that artists aren't necessarily great across all mediums.
This book reads at an elementary level, and contains quite a lot of extraneous background information that doesn't fit into the plot. Don't get me wrong: I purchased the book precisely to learn that background information, but that's only because I have such a keen interest in the music of Coheed & Cambria, and in the Amory Wars, the concept story behind all of C&C's lyrics. I would never recommend this book to someone who was not already interested in learning more about the universe of Heaven's Fence, as it is a poor representation of a well-written sci-fi/fantasy book.
Unless you insist on having the purest vision of Claudio Sanchez's Year of the Black Rainbow, I would recommend supplementing your C&C knowledge with a good Wiki article. On the other hand, I am currently engrossed in the Amory Wars comics, and I recommend those highly to C&C fans and general comic fans alike.
