This isn’t the cover I have. I try to make the covers match my own but these volumes have gone through some minor and major variations. Mine is Karolina looking super pissed.
The kids try to use their skills and tools for good, but it doesn’t necessarily work well for them. They even try to make a new friend. I think the real conflict of this book is that a bunch of teenagers, stuck together for this long are going to get strained. We already have Nico’s magic but things get a little more supernatural this go around.
This volume is probably most known for the appearance of Cloak and Dagger. I get why they are included teen heroes, runaways… they fit the keywords and the target demographic. It shows us some interesting things about our group for sure. Of course the problem of the Pride isn’t solved yet.
