A Bride's Story, Volume 2 follows Amir and her new family as she continues to get to know her neighbors and becomes accustomed to village life. We also get to meet Mr. Smith, an English adventurer who has come to stay with Amir's in-laws while documenting their way of life. But the events at the end of Volume one to to fruition, and her family has come to take her back and give her to another clan in marriage. Will she be forced to accompany them and leave her new family behind, or will she find a way to resist their demands? You'll have to read on to find out.

I really like this manga. A perfect way to introduce someone to manga who thinks they don't like manga, the series is accessible and really shows the flexibility of the format. But you'll want to start with volume one first. ( )

Amir and Karluk are growing closer as friends and as a couple when Amir's family comes to claim her back as they want to marry her off with someone more powerful. This installment has Amir in the weaker-sex role, where before she was strong and talented, but it is explained by the cultural rule that a woman can not disobey her father. I loved that it was a woman that came to her rescue, though - and a truly kick-ass one at that - since I was afraid the series would fall into that boring stereotype. The battle-scenes are a little hard to follow due to the drawing-style, but they do give the impression of mayhem, so that's a good thing. ( )

In v.2 we see the conclusion? of the clan feud that began in v.1 as well as the departure of the participant anthropologist, Mr. Smith. But really those things weren't what made the story for me...
Bride's Story really makes excellent women's lit and the stories about bread making, teaching your daughter to improve her embroidery, fertility pilgrimages, etc. give the reader a wonderful peak into the lives of women in multi-generational Central Asian clans. The chapter on embroidery is utterly beautiful and meticulously drawn--every panel is an exciting new pattern! It made me stop and wonder what life would be like if you lived in their village. Fantastic writing! ( )

The artwork is still gorgeous and the story is still intriguing. Half of this volume focused on the fight to steal Amira back and the other half is spent on some history of the culture taking place here. I enjoyed the second half of the book, especially the appreciation for the embroidery. The series has a slow pace so far, but it doesn’t seem to hinder the books. I would expect something of this setting and plot to be slow. It's more about the appreciation for the historical rendition than anything. I am enjoying the series and plan on continuing with it. ( )
