This is the end of the world. The end of our world. What went wrong? Why do the angels, once guardians charged with our protection and safety, now hunt us to extinction? As we become fewer and fewer will the questions be answered, or lost in the fires of ritual? When all things fade in the Afterlight...What will be left of hope?
Time of the Faeries: Afterlight, End of the World is the first of a four part graphic novel series featuring the photographic art of J. Corsentino.
Corsentino's artworks are gorgeously detailed, where he views himself on stage narrating a story about the end of the world, where the Faeries discover that they are no longer immortal, and finally revert to the forbidden way of sucking humas' Kai (energy) to sustain their lives and return to E'ven. Thus, a battle between the beautiful, unearthly winged creatures and the desperate humans begins.
Done with the visual arts... now I'm commenting on the writing. The story starts with a prologue which, while giving the readers an idea of what is happening, is a little too long and has too much information cramped together that I have to reread the whole passage again to understand it better. It would be better if the prologue is short and simple, giving readers just enough information to pique their interest.
Time of the Faeries: Afterlight, End of the World is a dark, exciting journey to a futuristic world which is slowly stepping towards a seemingly unstoppable annihilation. Reading this book is certainly a one-of-a-kind experience - one which is very much appreciated.
Note: I received a copy of this book from Donny for reviewing purposes. Thanks, Donny!
