LeVasseur brings us fully into the Martian world, letting us see and understand the government workings. I loved how we finally got to see the other side of the story. Those characters who’ve been giving me the chills up until now have become real entities, rather than simply shadows in the background. Now, they are beings to be feared. Each of the new characters introduced adds an extra element to the intrigue and plotting on Mars.
The illustrations tell this story almost as eloquently as LeVasseur’s fantastic writing. They are vibrant and really bring the characters to life. Readers can’t help but notice how much they complement and add to the story. They enhance the vivid descriptions with which LeVasseur brings his world to life. I will note, however, that to get the full impact one should be reading on a device with colour display, be it a computer, tablet, or your ereader (if it’s capable).
