We meet Vesper Grey and her companion Corrick after she just killed half dozen men. She then opens a mysterious chest which contains a mask that has a special ability. Vesper then reflects back to where she lived boring life in a stifling environment with her Aunt Agatha. Her father, who is an archaeologist, was always away on trips leaving her alone. One day a life threatening event happened which led her to meet Corrick. It was there that she knew then that things will be different from then on…
The humor in this book is great; I caught myself laughing out loud at a few times. I really like Smith’s style of writing and art. The duo is looking for items that Vesper’s dad had which have some magical properties (like a mask that gives you fire wings and capability to run at incredible speeds). Vesper’s glowing medallion means something as well and I sure we’ll find out before the mini-series is over. This is a nice start to what a hope is a good ride.
