    This was fine. I love Sarah Fine so much, but she didn't come through in this style/graphic novel. The artwork style was an interesting choice. I felt like if you hadn't read the Reliquary series, this would have made very little sense to you, nor would you have gotten much of a story. But I also felt like, as a fan of the series, that there wasn't much content or connection. I think it got confused about whether it was trying to be a new piece for people who were already entrenched in the serie This was fine.

    Okay The artwork was very good, but I just didn't quite get the story. I needed more info about the main character. Okay The artwork was very good, but I just didn't quite get the story. I needed more info about the main character.

    Disclaimer: I received a free ecopy via Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review. Mayhem & Magic is part of the Reliquary series by Sarah Fine. It seems to be a trend with Jet City books that they are connected to a series of novels. I found this one to be developed a bit better than some of the others.

Mayhem & Magic is part of the Reliquary series by Sarah Fine. It seems to be a trend with Jet City books that they are connected to a series of novels. I found this one to be developed a bit better than some of the others. As a result, I enjoyed it a bit more too. This is set in an alternate version of our world where magic exists. Not a new concept by any means, but it does distinguish itself in a couple ways. There are four types of magic and each one allows the user to affect the world in a different way. It is also possible to imbue some of that magic into items or people. There are also some interesting roles based around magic. Some people can use one of the four types of magic, while others are able to see the connections that people and objects have to magic. Asa Ward is one of the latter type of people, and he uses his ability to track down items imbued with magic, which he then sells. He tries to live below the radar to protect himself and those around him. After crossing a gangster, he is pulled into a battle between different crime factions. The exciting thing about this book is how Ward interacts with the world around him. His position lets the reader get a glimpse of all four types of magic in action. We see his capabilities, something he cares about, and something he fears. Taken as a whole, these elements give life to the character. I didn't care much for the art though. Like some of the other Jet City books, there is too much shading used. The characters don't stand out very much. However, this is contrasted nicely by the colors used for the magic. Each type has a different color and it becomes easy to identify which one is being employed by color alone. I like the setting that Fine created. Ward is a great character to introduce the reader to that world.

    I love the artwork and the world. It gives a noir feel and a futuristic feel at the same time. The types of magic and the general idea are well placed, but I feel I should learn more about this world and the main character specifically. This is a good visual introduction to the fictional works by the same author.

    I was provided a free copy of this by goodreads. There are four types of magic. Senilio is sensing magic, Knedas is persuasion magic, Strikon is pain magic and Ekstazo is pleasure magic. The plot of this new Urban Fantasy graphic novel. The art was alright. I like cleaner pictures usually. But I can see where having the unclean edges lent itself to this particular story since we are dealing with multiple mob bosses and a magical thief. I thought the plot was semi interesting, though I don't know I was provided a free copy of this by goodreads. There are four types of magic.

I thought the plot was semi interesting, though I don't know of anyone who would put themselves in that much danger for their dog. Also some of the conversations were awkward/unrealistic to be spoken between a serial criminal and a magical policeman or mob boss. It felt like reading a middle schooler talk minus the humor. But the main character's inner voice was engaging and interesting. I don't even know if we're told his name. He's just "small-time." But overall I would recommend this to people who enjoy a good Urban Fantasy.

    Interesting story about magic in our world - used for unsavory things. The idea of the how magic works is fascinating, and the main character - out to save his DOG - is interesting and a lot of fun. Artwork is decent, though I'm dinging this a point because the beginning felt a little confusing, even after re-reading it, as I got into the story. I'd be intrigued to see other books set in this world. Overall, this was a fun read, and one I'd actually keep my eyes open for.

    This graphic novel left too much unsaid and forced me to fill in way too many blanks. The underlying magic was explained, but left me feeling the characters were unrealistic. I couldn't empathize with the villainous hero. I admit my familiarity with the genre is limited, but I have read much better material with a flowing storyline and characters whose motivations and actions make sense. The underlying premise has merit and could be developed into something much more meaningful and relevant. This This graphic novel left too much unsaid and forced me to fill in way too many blanks.

Lewd language and situations make this an adult read. * I received a free copy from Goodreads giveaways *

    ~Received this book for free in a giveaway~ This ended up feeling far to convoluted and confusing. The world isn't well developed. And it spends more time than needed explaining the powers. Like one issue talked about it then the next issue did as well. It's like I just read that and I know. What I want to know is new information about the world you are trying to build here. I didn't develop a strong feel for any of the characters and didn't particuarly like any of them either.

    Well, considering how obsessed I am with Reliquary and Splinter, it's only natural that I would read the comics about my main squeeze, Asa. I'll admit, it wasn't quite what I was expecting... a little too short, a little not about Asa and Mattie (what?! I know what I like) but it was still good! I liked having the visual while I was reading :) Now if only we could get Asa's POV during the Reliquary series... I think I might die and go to book heaven then.

    Not my usual cup of tea I got this book in a give away. I enjoyed the story line and the artistic aspect. It wasn't something that I normally read but it was good.
