Review: Night’s Dominion #4
Emerane and her companions narrowly escape the Cult of Uhlume and the relentless Furie, exhausted but no richer for their efforts. Going their separate ways into in the pitiless streets of Umber, they each find a dead end waiting. Now penniless, Emerane’s quest to free her younger brother from debtor’s prison seems more hopeless than ever. Until a possible solution comes from the most unlikely ally imaginable—the Furie himself. But his help comes with a dangerous price.
The twists and turns continue in Night’s Dominion #4, as things get complicated for Emerane. It seems she is much more then she appears, in terms of her character. Even more so the Furie has an interesting backstory than first thought. Yet it seems the Cult of Uhlume has a lust for power that they want by any means necessary.
The art by Ted Naifeh (who also writes the series) is much darker this time around. Which I think is partly due to the darkening of the story. The sheer amount of action scenes is impressive and well done in every aspect. Yet this issues does show the contrast between the various classes in the city in superb fashion.
