About the Book:

Alaska state trooper Silaluk Osha is investigating a series of murders, when 2 guys who are smuggling contraband suddenly die in a car accident.  As she tries to work with local PD she continues to experience issues of her past when the local mob arrives and tries to take charge.

Reviewer’s Notes:

This story continues to delve more into the abilities of the main character, revealing more of the power she possesses.  I find that the story has progressed nicely. Going more into the background of the main character and revealing more of the troubles that she had as well as tried to run away from, while growing up.

Being that some kind of spirit or spirits inhabits her body, the story thus far has only hinted at the family line, but does give small indications that it is part of the reason for the loss of her mom. Making me wonder if this is something that is a curse on the family, or passed down in the line.

Either way the story has become more intriguing with each issue, showing both the past of the main character, as she tries to solve a case while dealing with the fact that the secrets of her family are coming to light.

Borealis continues to tell a remarkable story into the mystical and magical nature of the main character alongside the backdrop of Alaska under the Aurora Borealis.

The cover is very well done, showing the main character standing in the middle of the attack that ended the last book, and I think highlights nicely,  the fact that whatever is going on, centers on the main character. But the overall look is very striking and eye catching in both color and detail.

The interior artwork like the cover are very well done with wonderful striking shades, clean lines, and great detail that fit the area of which the story takes place very well, showing the dark overtone of the perceived endless night and perceived endless cold that the great northern areas have.

Growing up in the 80s and 90s I grew up as an eclectic geek, a fact that still holds true today. I grew up watching all the classic cartoons of the 80's and had many an adventures with the toys that went with. Played tabletop RPG's and still enjoy computer gaming as adulting allows. On top of making time to read comics, and spend time with family and friends.
