Shannon’s Thoughts:

Finally fans of Joss Whedon’s Firefly are given some of the back history to character Shepherd Book.  We learn what made the man who was so well train in arsenals and be a man of the cloth.

The artwork is probably the best thing about this volume of Serenity.

The background story was mediocre.  I feel that Shepherd’s story could have been stretched out to more graphic novels and instead it loss something. It has the feeling of being chopped and no real connection or heart.

Since I was a fan of Firefly I know the characters and was of course interested in the back story that was not told in the show or movie. Anyone not a fan of Firefly, will probably have no interest in this third volume.

Even though I had some interest in Shepherd Book’s story this was less interesting than imagined. I had hoped for something more exciting.

I found that with the Serenity comics in general. I would love for the world to continue with great stories, but I don't think they're getting very good writers.
