Overview

R to L (Japanese Style)

Boasting furious action, switchback plotting, magnetic characters and dazzling art, Dogs tells the story of four individuals struggling to survive a dystopian urban future by gun and sword and courage and luck.

Haine, the “Stray Dog”: a cipher of a young man with a mysterious metal collar bolted to his neck and a disturbing talent for mayhem. Badou: a hired gun for petty jobs legal and non, whose reckless façade hides a serious intent. Naoto: a preternaturally skilled swordswoman searching for the assassin who cut down her family and mentor. Mihai: a middle-aged former hitman, trying live a quiet life but haunted by the deaths of his lover and protégé. Driven by their ghosts—both dead and alive—and a desire for truth, all are inexorably drawn to the “Underground,” the dark and dangerous sector below the city that holds all the secrets—but secrets that can only be had for a price.

    Great

    This book is worth reading, four different people, whose lives all somewhat connect but in turn do differ. Each one with a talent for getting things done, but also pasts that are more perculiar than they may believe.

    it's something worth picking up

    I finally get the chance to read the prelude of the series after a week or so since buying it due to being sidetrack. However when I put it down to do something quick, I just want to pick it up right away once I get back. The stories of these 4 characters were so interesting. Think of it as a combo of Kenshin & personaity of Trigun or Cowboy Bebop (but not space-like). There's a nice comedy to one of the character's story, it was so funny. I can't wait to read more. Up next is book 1, look forward for my review on it.
