Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—This pulpy, clichéd story will undoubtedly interest some readers, but it's too flawed to generate any wide appeal. The plot follows the paths of two English pals who travel about an anachronistic world stealing artifacts for a wealthy individual known as The Collector. Their adventures inevitably involve a series of narrow, improbable escapes and frequent encounters with sexy, dangerous women. The plot and characterizations will be all too familiar to anyone with a passing knowledge of Indiana Jones, Lara Croft, or the Hollywood tradition of the "buddy picture." The art is surprisingly flat, and the computer-generated colors fail to convey the simple fun of the genre. Finally, the representation of characters is inconsistent, with body proportions and facial features changing awkwardly. Interestingly, the concept artwork at the back is excellent; it's unfortunate that the finished product didn't live up to its promise.—Douglas P. Davey, Halton Hills Public Library, Ontario, Canada
