----------------------------------------------------

*Starred Review* Vaughan, writer of the hugely successful Y: The Last Man, isn’t one to think small. In
this opener to his ambitious new series, bits of sf space opera and classic fantasy mesh in setting a sprawling stage
for an intensely personal story of two lovers, cleverly narrated by their newborn daughter. Though recently soldiers
from opposite sides of a massive intergalactic war, moth-winged Alana and ram-horned Marko simply want peace and
anonymity to raise their daughter (an abomination to the powers that be) away from conflict and hatred. Vaughan’s
whip-snap dialogue is as smart, cutting, and well timed as ever, and his characters are both familiar enough to
acclimate easily to and deep enough to stay interested in as their relationships bend, break, and mend. While Vaughan
will be the star power that attracts readers, do-it-all artist Staples is going to be the one who really wows them. Her
character designs dish out some of the best aliens around, the immersive world-crafting is lushly detailed and deeply
thought through, and the spacious layouts keep the focus squarely on the personal element, despite the chaotic cosmos
they inhabit. Add another winner to Vaughan’s stable of consistently epic, fresh, and endearing stories. --Ian Chipman

BOOKLIST (STARRED) -- Vaughan, writer of the hugely successful Y: The Last Man , isn't one to think small. In this
opener to his ambitious new series, bits of sf space opera and classic fantasy mesh in setting a sprawling stage for an
