Stand Alone or Series: 24th volume in the Claymore series
Rating: 4/5 stars
This is the 24th volume in the Claymore series. It continues where volume 23 left off and has a very linear storyline again. This series is supposed to wrap up with volume 27 later in 2015.
The rebel Claymores, several former top warriors, and Raki form a defensive plan to defeat Priscilla. Meanwhile a huge Yoma based creature is coalescing outside of the Holy City of Rabona. This is a creature that may surpass Priscilla in power. An epic battle between Priscilla and the new Yoma based creature ensues.
There is a ton of battling in this book, really at least half of it is just one action shot after another. The source of the rebels half-awakening ability is also finally revealed, so that was very interesting.
The illustration remains top notch and the story action packed. You can tell things are reaching a climax here as our characters launch into one epic battle after another.
Overall this was a great installment in this series. It was action packed and reveals some more secrets around why the rebel Claymore can half-awaken. I am excited to see what the last few volumes of this series hold and how everything is wrapped up.
