If you've read Devi Vol. I, then you'll no doubt be irresistibly drawn to Vol. II - Vol. I was brilliant, with excellent writing and exceptional art. Vol. II, in the main, continues the first volume's tradition of excellence with one exception: the art takes a turn for the disappointing.

The Plot: Picking up one month after the end of Vol I, Vol. II finds the evil Lord Bala searching for the mysterious and all-powerful Source, an ancient artifact that, once in his power, will give him unlimited might. To do so, he is forcing his henchmen to dig deep beneath the city. Meanwhile, the Cabinet of Shadows, a secretive organization that seeks to preserve human existence on earth, continue its own machinations against Bala. Also, Bala's best general, Iyam, and the mystical assassin Kratha, continue their search for Devi. Tara, in the meantime, the new incarnation of the Devi, is having trouble reconciling her human and divine selves and even rejects that idea that she's supposed to be a hero, a pawn of the gods, against her will. The hardbitten detective, Rahul Singh, continues as her sidekick. All of these elements combine in a massive showdown within one of the city's slums, and ends with a few surprises.

First, the good: The first two chapters of this volume contain the same beautifully-rendered art that was seen throughout the first volume. Also, the writing continues to shine, in the main. Also, there's a very nice sketchbook section, and an enticing preview of the third volume, which looks to be superb!

Now, the bad: The art of most of the book is disappointing, switching from the beautifully-rendered, realistic style of the first volume into an almost anime-like, Saturday morning cartoon style that just doesn't fit the book. Also, some of the writing falls flat, specifically Tara/Devi's struggles over the fact that she's now a hero with responsibilities that she openly rejects. This just doesn't come off very well, and rings hollow. Granted, however, these scenes are frequently encountered in superhero literature and, as a rule, they never work out, so this is a minor thing.

Overall, Devi Vol. II is very good, and well worth your time and money. However, the lackluster art and a couple of rough spots in the story may prove disappointing.

This comic books is amazing. The drawing is neat and perfect, and it works very well at telling the story it's telling. I loved the "struggle" between Tara and the Devi, the goddess and the humanity.

The characters are amazing, each of them unique and with a strong personality, making you want to know more of each one.

The story told is also a very good one, and the only cliché found in its pages is the story of the woman who suddenly gets this powers that she hasn't asked for. It reminds a little of Sara Pezzini and the Witchblade in that sense.

All in all this one is a recommended lecture. I have the third onealso in my hands, and the following one pre ordered and I'm really hooked onto the story!!!

The book was good, it continued the plot from Devi 1. The artwork was not as great as the first book. It gets only 2 stars for the art, but the extra star is for the story line.
