My Review

This graphic novel was definitely easy on the eyes. The colorful graphics superseded and outshone the plot on several levels, while the continuation of the series was set in the first volume of Love or Die.

Tamara could care less about another high school loser like Kieron. Hiding and protecting her own insecurities as an orphan, she actually has more in common with this new boy at school then she thinks. Both of them are destined to lead an army against each other in another dimension, as it has been decided long ago. So, on their 18th birthday, they are to either fight to the death or consummate in love to bring peace to the two worlds.

There is definitely some romance in the air, as the two of them are beamed into other dimensions and are forced to fight. It seems as though it is bringing them closer to one another and the points go to love. But will they actually consummate and bring peace to their worlds? That remains to be read!

Adventurous, fun and very dynamic!
