Goodreads Synopsis: 
Maika fights to cross the wall. Elsewhere, the Warlord makes her move.

If you have not read book one, there may be spoilers below. 
Another wonderful issue with more beautiful art. In this issue, Maika awakes to find herself traveling and still full of questions. This issue was about half the length of the first so there was not a lot of plot movement but we do end on a cliff-hanger as Maika encounters a woman hunting her. This again was another mysterious issue, more question about who or what Maika actually is. 

I love the detail again in this issues images - there are less settings and more people that are showcased but their clothing and motions are just as elaborately done as the settings in the last installment. I am really loving this series so far. 

I don't want to say too much more at this point because I don't want to spoil any more of the story for those of you who want to read it, but even though there are a lot of questions I have about this character and the plot I think it is well worth reading for the images alone. So wonderful.
