The Rundown: Yara takes on the fury of Olympus and discovers a dark truth about her past.
Standing against an army of Olympian soldiers, Yara Flor remembers the circumstances that brought her to the attention of the gods in the first place, the murder of her mother. As the Esquecidas fight to tear down the gate to Olympus to rescue Yara, she is confronted by the man who killed her mother.
With Yara standing alone, she unmasks the man and discovers his true identity and the betrayal that this revelation means. At the same time, Zeus decides to end the conflict once and for all by killing Yara as Hera watches. When the gate is finally breached, Yara and her tribe fight against the Olympians and Cassie decides to have a talk with her grandfather about how they can end the conflict before it escalates.
The Story: Jones brings this arc to a satisfying and exciting conclusion. The reveal of who killed Yara’s mother is handled perfectly and it connects perfectly with Yara’s character arc throughout the series. The action is brilliant and there is a great sense of tension throughout the issue that is engaging to the reader. I continue to be impressed with the character and her unique perspective and personality. Jones does a great job of bringing Yara’s story to life in a way where you want to see more of her and her adventures.
The Art: Leila Del Duca delivers some fantastic, beautifully composed art in this issue. From the battle scenes to the character moments, every page of this issue has something beautiful and brilliant to connect with.
