Waiting On Wednesday: Monstress, Vol. 4: The Chosen by Marjorie M. Liu and Sana Takeda

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday was a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each Wednesday you got to highlight a book that you were really looking forward to. Unfortunately, the original creator is no longer able to host the meme and it has now linked up with Can’t Wait Wednesday over at Wishful Endings.

This week I’ve chosen: Monstress, Vol. 4: The Chosen by Marjorie M. Liu and Sana Takeda

Christmas is a time for miracles, but miracles have always bothered Hamilton Dinger.

His fledgling hope is lost the moment when a new demon monster begins attacking the Star of Hope. Now, not only does Hamilton have to transform into his city superhero self to fight it, he has to deal with Starry Knight, too. Can Hamilton find a new reason for hope this holiday, or is it too much to ask for one more Christmas miracle?

The Birth of Gemini


The Birth of Gemini (The Signs of the Stars #1)
by C.S. Johnson
Publication Date: July 2018
Genre: Manga/ Graphic Novel
Length: 28 Pages

Years and light-years away, one father must find the courage to do whatever it takes to protect his children …

As a surgeon for the Mercy Interplanetary Alliance, Micheel Reshi is no stranger to difficult choices. But when his wife, Nabelle, gives birth to their twins, Micheel is horrified to find Callox and Pasher bare the Sign of Gemini on their arms. The bright constellation marks them as carriers of the hidden code Earth’s last generation had engineered into human DNA—and marks them as targets by the Collectors, a group of people determined to wipe out all memory of Old Earth and its existence.

When Count Lux, Nabelle’s cousin and a member of the Collectors, arrives on their starship, Micheel knows he must do something to save his family—even if it means breaking them apart.

THIS IS THE SHORT STORY GRAPHIC NOVEL VERSION OF THE PREQUEL TO “THE SIGNS OF THE STARS”, A SPACE OPERA ADVENTURE SERIES FROM C. S. JOHNSON.

My Thoughts

This story is only 28 pages long and that is the light novel and manga version both. Yes, you get both. This is the first short to The Signs of the Stars series, which will be a space opera.

I really enjoyed this start to the series. As usual C.S. Johnson’s writing was amazing just sucked me right in.  I was surprised how invested I became in just those few pages and didn’t realize it until there was no more left to read. That ending tho was the cliff hanger of all cliff hangers.

I don’t know when the next installment is coming out or if they will continue to be this short. I looked but couldn’t find anything on them yet.
