Andromeda Stories 2
January 20, 2008
Reading this volume, I really felt like I was just going through the motions. There wasn’t really a single thing that grabbed my attention this time around. We’ve got the exiled prince who is finally contacted by a psychic cult and called on to save the world. We’ve got the prince’s twin brother, the two still haven’t met, but he is in some sort of nomadic group and has yet to establish himself as notable, or really make any sort of appearance in the story other than a brief catch-up session.
Robots still rule the planet. Can the humans stop them? Well, probably, because that’s how these things go. We find out that not all robots are bad. We find something out about the mysterious swordswoman from last volume. Also, we find out that it’s possible the robots aren’t all bad at all, even the bad ones. Does any of this sound familiar, or even all that interesting? People who love sci-fi/fantasy hard may go for this series, but I just can’t get into it… the plot, the characters, I can’t get into any of it. Maybe the conclusion next volume will be fun.
