Stand Alone or Series: 27th volume in the Claymore series
Rating: 5/5 stars
This is the 27th (and final) volume in the Claymore series. It did an excellent job of wrapping up this series. There were some awesome action scenes and some huge surprises.
Volume 26 ended on a bit of a cliffhanger when we see Clare access Teresa of the Faint Smile. In this book we see the implications of that and follow an epic battle between Clare/Teresa and Priscilla.
We get a little back story on Clare, Priscilla, and Raki which was a nice diversion from the main battle and did a good job of filling out the story. The illustration remains top notch as well.
I really loved how everything wrapped up. There are some loose ends but overall it was tied up in a way that was realistic, engaging and just…well…nice!
Overall this was the perfect closure to an excellent manga series. There is a lot of action, some surprises, and an excellent story. I would highly recommend this whole series to those who enjoy action-packed fantasy shounen.
