Not as good as Crown of Shadows and weirder in artwork format than the previous three volumes, but still pretty good. The body count really went up in this issue and there was considerably more gore.

Without spoiling too much, Zach seems to have everything pretty well sewn up except for the Omega Key and still not being able to read Ty's and Rufus' mind w/o using the head key.

My only criticism is the constant revelation of a lot more keys. Hopefully the genesis of more keys will slow down since the plot seems to be mainly driven now by new keys and new unexpected powers which seems like cheating a little instead of developing what is already known and letting the characters drive the plot more.

Still, can't wait for #5. ( )

So, there are even more keys to found now. To be honest, I am still not convinced of the need to add all these keys to the story. The Philospher's Key and the Giant Key (in the last issue) seem to be particularly pointless.
That aside, the story is brilliant. Sam's and Rufus's roles in the book are unforeseen. Tyler's emotional maturity and intellectual acuity grow, which is a welcome change and allows the character to grow. Kinsey is still behaving like an adolescent, though I guess one sibling needs to play dumb to let the reader enjoy the others' growth. What I loved was how the the animal key, which seems so irrelevant in this book, plays a crucial role at the end of the series!
And the cliffhanger, oh my God! That was an end George Martin couldn't have written! ( )

I find this too be an interesting series. I like the artwork and the story, for the most part. Still way to gory for me. Also there tends to be a lot of unnecessary talking, especially in the beginning. It picks up after a while though. ( )
