Rating: 4/5 stars
This is the third book in the four book Okko series by Hub. This series continues to be very interesting and well drawn.
We continue to follow Okko and his companions as they journey from city to city seeking out demons. In this book they are asked to help Lady Mayudama’s daughter who has been unresponsive and is thought to be possessed by a demon. While assisting Lady Mayudama they run into another demon hunter who ends up having history with Okko and demanding a duel with Okko.
Like previous volumes this one is beautifully illustrated with wonderful color and lots of detail. It was easy to follow and great to look at.
There is a ton of action and fighting in this volume as well. Additionally we get to learn a bit more about Okko’s past.
The book is called the Cycle of Air because in this installment Noshin and Tikku end up summoning air spirits to assist Okko. We also learn a bit more about what Noboru is; the demon hunter that duels Okko is also hunting Noboru.
Overall I continue to really enjoy the Okko series and look forward to reading the final book in it, The Cycle of Fire. I would recommend this to people who enjoy historical fantasy graphic novels with lots of action.
