    1 thought on “Hinterkind Vol. 2: Written in Blood

    1. Imagine a world where humanity is on the ropes. All of the creatures we always imagined existed have crawled out of their holes and now want control of the world. Enter Vampires, Ogres, Centaurs, Changelings and many others we thought were myth or legend. Welcome to Hinterkind.

    2. *I received this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*3.5 out of 5 starsI liked this volume a lot better than the first volume, it seemed to have a plot (the nerve) and some forward momentum. I’m still not in love w/ the art it just seems very generic and everyones faces looks very similar so it’s hard to tell who is who. If you liked the first volume well you’ll probably love this.

    3. This second volume of the Vertigo series finally made me realise what this series is trying to be - Supernatural Game of Thrones. The politics and plot twists come thick and fast, and there's a hell of a lot of characters involved now, with camps meeting and breaking apart multiple times in just 6 issues. Some threads are a lot more interesting than others, like the Sidhe Court (which is great) and Prosper's grandad (which is not so great) which is why this only gets 3 stars instead of 4. Oh, th [...]

    4. Not as good as the first book. There are a lot of characters to follow now and the story switches perspective frequently. I found it to be a bit disjointed making it hard to follow. I just couldn't get into any of the characters. That said the story did progress and I got pretty wrapped up in the Sidhe plot of the royal family's antics and the ending was quite the shocker for me. I did not see that coming! For that reason I'll be going forth with the next book.

    5. After reading volume one, I was unsure about whether to continue this series. After volume two, I'm a little more convinced as the deceptively simple conflicts revealed in the first volume take some interesting turns. The Sidhe plotline is the most interesting to me in this volume, so I'll keep going with the series.

    6. Not as good as the first collection. The story has become convoluted without enough focus being given to the main character. Now there are so many unclear connections that I've lost interest. I liked some of it, the vampires in blimps and centaurs and wings being ripped off, but mostly I finished it because I'm a completist.

    7. So good. Regretting that I didn't wait longer to enjoy this series. I'm already caught up after two volumes. Volume 3 out June 30, 2015. Boo that!

    8. I really liked this volume. It talks about the history and how this world became to be. There are new creatures to discover and the volume adds more the the story of Prosper and her crew (?). The Art: It is still the same and I still like it. Everything is detailed from the background, background characters, clothing, plants, animals, people, and there is nothing left out. The colors mesh well with the story. The Story/Setting: It goes and talks about how the world came to be. That is all I am g [...]

    9. i liked it way more than the first book. still have the 3rd book out from the library so i guess ill find out how that one will go

    10. Reading through my first review, most of my complaints that I had in the first volume were addressed in the second volume. We get more plot building in this novel and also follow the different cast journey: Prosper & her adventures, Prosper's grandfather & his adventures, Prosper's friend & his adventures----and the sidhe royalty arc, which I enjoyed reading immensely. As this cast of characters start out on their different paths, which (of course) will eventually lead them all toget [...]

    11. T'was alright. Not brilliant but not bad enough that I don't want to continue on and read the third volume. Still think a little bit more time could have been spent on the artwork.

    12. Synopsis: "The second volume of the hit series begins with Princess Tersia, who has a vision of the future and the shape of things to come. In this vision she's married to Jon Hobb and carrying his baby. Oh, and there's a dragon! Is it a dream or a nightmare? Meanwhile, bounty hunters Starla and Jubal find the tables are turned as they're run to ground by a Centaur posse.The second chapter in Vertigo's next great series is here in HINTERKIND VOL. 2. Collects HINTERKIND #7-12."My Review: This was [...]

    13. LOVE the cover art!Humans, fairies, trolls, vampires, ogres, goblins, imps, sprites, centaurs,; sidhe running things- but not united. The world is in constant small wars. Lots of death. All the races are food for the vampires, who can see a blood drought coming… too many vampires, to little blood-stock.There are many groups running around in this book; it was very hard to follow. I found myself picking up the first book again. By the end, a few groups consolidated… but some characters had al [...]

    14. Two things, Vampires are great at black ops and don't trust your kids. In this installment, we see the Vampires coming to America to establish a strong hold and the Sidhe being done in by the avarice of the Prince and Princess.We have Prosper continuing her search for grandfather and making unlikely allies in a quest for survival. We see unlikely groups coming together in preparation for the upcoming conflicts; this book will really get you anxious for the next volume.I really cannot wait to see [...]

    15. One thing patently clear is that the book reviewing gods weren't on my side when only allowing me to start this series with book two. I had long wanted this Ian Edginton series from Vertigo, and long wanted it to be as great as expected, but this hodge podge of confused and confusing sides – every element of fairy and fantasy humanoids fighting over the USA and a couple of unlucky humans – really didn't work seeing it from this point. It might be a bit more comprehensible from the get-go, bu [...]

    16. Well, that was unexpectedThis volume is more a 3.5, but the growing war dynamics were fun and complicated and showed potential. Basically, Hinterkind imagines a future world in which humans have mostly died out and now fantasy folk are free to come out, be seem, and attempt to conquer lands. This volume has lots of violence and death and, surprisingly, vampires. Oh, and lots of centaurs. And ogres with British accents. I'd put this one aside earlier this year but finished it for the BB March 201 [...]

    17. I really enjoyed the first volume of this series, but this second volume left me a bit cold. A lot happens and there are frequent explosions and death to spice things up, but there is less focus on character. It's still an interesting world with interesting characters and I felt like this volume moved the story forward, but didn't add a lot to it. [I received this as an e-galley from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.]

    18. The tale continues with separate story lines on the West Coast, the East Coast, Europe, and parts in between. The infighting of the Sidhe continues to grow more violent, The Vampires send over an expedition to pave the way for an invasion, and the New York humans are trying to get back together. Prosper is with a Sidhe prince and her grandfather is with Jon Hobb and Angus among others. Looking forward to the next volume!

    19. I like this volume more than the first collection, which isn't saying much because I did not like Volume 1. We got a little more into some of the characters, and a few still managed to stay alive, but yet more were killed - I feel like that's an ongoing theme and must be to make some kind of point about the fleetingness of life?

    20. Our representatives of humanity's straggling post-apocalyptic remnants are divided, the better to encounter various strands of Earth's once and future rulers, from pseudo-Nazi vampires to Lancashire farmer ogres. As is so often the way, the second volume feels more substantial than the first, but still nowhere near essential.

    21. I'm enjoying this series even if it is derivative of other series like Fables and East of West. The art could be better defined. It's kind of just roughed out drawings where I prefer more fully fleshed out figures. The story is one of a dystopian future where monsters of legend have taken over the earth.

    22. Things are moving along at a good pace, and different lines are converging where you can begin to get an idea of the full picture. The art doesn't seem quite as lush as in the first volume, but I like the way the lettering adapts to the different scenes and folks. The opening made me feel like I should have some sympathy for Tersia, but I'm not feeling it.

    23. This is another time I thought this series fine but not great. It wasn't unique or innovative enough. I thought I would give it a try for the second volume but I don't feel compelled to follow it closely. It seems the only vampire graphic novels I like are 30 Days of Night and American Vampire.

    24. Good sequel, the story was building up nicely and it was easier to follow each part because I knew the main characters. Discovering new kinds was fun, especially the ogres and the woodcravens, well highlighted by the art and colors.

    25. Not so crazy about the addition of vampires to the mix. I suppose it's inevitable, but I'm a little burned out on vampires these days. And the whole all-out war thing, sigh. It always ends with all-out war. I'll keep reading, though.

    26. Tersia really started to remind me of Prince Joffrey in this volume and I wanted to punch her in the face. The amount of double-crossing was sometimes a bit hard to follow, and for a while I lost track of the boy with the tail (whose name escapes me at the moment), but overall enjoyable.

    27. There is so much going on in this volume yet none of it gets lost of feels over-crowded. All the characters are easily identifiable and for the most part likeable and entertaining. I'm excited to see how things go down in the final volume.

    28. I del två breddas perspektivet och det är till seriens fördel. Nu handlar det inte bara om människornas överlevnad utan också om stridigheter mellan de mytologiska varelserna och byggande av nya stater. Riktigt kul.
