M. Montgomery going on at Marvel at the time be it Civil War or Decimation or whatever so we also don t have a lot of forward momentum with the foundation of the series itself It just feels like reading a book full of spin offs where nothing that happens really mattersAll of that said it is clear that Peter David is aood technical writer The book is a uick read and has no real plot holes or inconsistencies minus one plot twist that I thought was a little stupid especially with the backpedaling David does to make it make sense in retrospect I love his characterization of Siryn and the concept of Layla a character who can subtly influence the future via the Butterfly Effect is a cool one I just wish this book felt like it had any stakes at all.
