Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
11/04/2013
Forever Carlyle is the Carlyle family’s Lazarus, a scientifically enhanced soldier whose raison d’être is to protect the family and preserve its interests, whether they be political, economic, or personal. The Carlyles, along with a handful of other families, control the world through a combination of ultra-high finance and mafia-style brutality, with Forever acting as both ambassador and enforcer. Meanwhile, her step siblings resent her place in the family and treat her as little more than a tool in their schemes for power. Rucka, who’s written street-level crime sagas (Stump-town) and high-flying superheroics (Wonder Woman), settles into a satisfying and flexible niche of believability, weaving a complex story of intrigue and action in a science fiction setting that may not be fiction for long. Artists Lark and Arcas’s muted and subtle visuals ground the story as well, while handling its swift and violent fight scenes and plotted interludes with consistent skill. (Oct.)

    This was only my fourth graphic novel I have read ever, but when I saw the word dystopian how could I refuse?

    I am really glad that I grabbed this.

    I needed something new and fresh and this did the trick to get me out of a slump I was in. I thought the graphic world was vivid and realistic. I was sucked in by all the characters and kept picturing this as a movie in my head. I felt tension, greed, lust, and aggressive pour out of the graphics in his novel. I couldn't stop turning the pages and I even sucked in my breath a few times. I don't claim to be a comic expert at all--but I am finding that I appreciate the graphic novels very much when I find ones I like. I get so absorbed with the combination of past paced story and art that it is the perfect day read when I need something different in my reading palette.

    If you are into graphic novels I highly recommend this one! It will leave you on the edge of your seat and begging for more!

    *I received a copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*
