While I was home sick with a cold earlier this week, I took the recommendation of some friends and started reading some comic books. Specifically, getting caught up on a mutant from the Marvel universe named PsyLocke. It was suggested that I start with the Uncanny X-Men, issues 256-258.
Covers of The Uncanny X-Men #256-258
Now I’m thinking about what to read next. I’m seeing recommendations for the Captain Britain Trade Paperback for her early story, New Mutants, Mutant Massacre and Uncanny X-Force. If anyone has favorite Psylocke issues or stories, let me know.
The Oathbound by Mercedes Lackey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars Finished this last night. I grabbed the Sword and Sorceress III volume from the library in order to read the beginning of the story, and that was very compelling. This volume developed the characters and story arc. I found it less a single novel than a sequence of encounters, but there is an undergirding narrative that connects the separate chapters flowing and coherent. Although I liked this book a lot, I didn’t see the kind of growth and change in the characters that I have seen in other Lackey novels. I will continue reading the the series, though, and see where Tarma and Kethry take me. View all my reviews >>
