Finished the second book and the series got a bit better. There are some elements to the book that I don't like, such as the personality of the villains. They all seem to have complexes that are pretty typical to villains in stories. In this book, Water, the demi-god-guy who controls water is an angry man scorned by the woman he loves (his sister, no less) and it's kinda obvious that he would be evil because of it. Each issue seems to build toward something, with the early issues focusing more on character growth and the latter issues being action. I liked that. I also enjoyed that the girl Dara is learning more about who her father was before he was her father. I'm curious to see where that element goes as the series progresses.
Luna brothers books are mediocre at best. That doesn't mean they're not entertaining. The Sword is good if you can shut down your brain while you're reading it. The last volume is the best IMHO.
