    To clarify, this is the second book in Valiant's 'Harbinger' ser

    To clarify, this is the second book in Valiant's 'Harbinger' series, collecting comic issues #6-#10, and is every bit as good as the first, and better!

    This second book naturally picks up the Harbinger story right where the first left off, and takes the story to a much higher level. This book essentially revolves around the formation of the protagonist's group of psiots, who later come to be known as the 'Renegades'.

    The reason that "the book takes the story to a much higher level" for me is that whilst the art remains on a similar level to the first (which I also reviewed here on Amazon and cited as "decent art with fantastic colours"), it's the writing that really is brilliant in this book, as the whole story kicks up a notch and becomes _very_ exciting.

    Having said that, the book isn't ALL ABOUT action sequences, far from it in fact. In this book the writer first of all treats us by introducing two new characters, who become part of the 'Renegades' team. He also once again shows his fantastic ability for writing characters with really good depth: Throughout this book we see (excluding the main character, who already had his 'depth' written in the first book) all of the main characters given a generous amount of 'character building' page space, which really helps to establish them in the story and gives the reader the ability to identify with or sympathise with them, which gives you a real desire to want them to succeed, especially toward the latter end of the book.

    Speaking of which, this is where the books' action sequence occurs: And it really is big and exciting. I won't give away what happens, but the 'Renegades' find themselves squeezed into a very tight spot and have to pull together to attempt to come out of the situation intact. This is where the writer proves that he really understands the idea of a 'team book', and shows his talent at being able to write a very good one. I found myself willing the characters to come up with some way to get themselves out of the situation, and I also badly *wanted* them all to come out of it in a good state: but whether or not that happened is up to you to find out. Needless to say the sequence was really well written and drawn, and was undoubtedly a tense and exciting read, and made an excellent finale in the back of the book.

    However, as good as the big action sequence was (it's not the *only* action sequence in the book, just incase you were wondering), it's certainly not the significant ending: A small, quiet event that happens afterwards is truly the 'big ending' of the book, and is a cool, sort of 'victorious' moment that happens right in the second to last panel. It really is a big, significant moment in 'Harbinger' story, as it completely sets up not only the next book but the whole future of the series: And once again my only problem with the book was that I put the book down *dying* to know what happened next!
