Sacred Volume 3 Story & Art by: Lizbeth R. Jimenez
Happy Woman's Wednesday Readers!? What is women's Wednesday you might ask? Well, Lizbeth R. Jimenez introduced us to it in her latest volume of Sacred. So, what is it? It is a surprise! But, do tell your friends about this laughable fun thing to do on Wednesday after you read this latest volume! I have been dying to read this latest volume since I finished Volume 2. oh so long ago... in this latest volume we are given a great many answers to a great many questions Where is Grandome? What is Mejic? And, how does one become a member of the world of Grandome? Sheko, Cecero, Skylar, Lady Alumrion, Hea Mordwoe, and the rest of the gang are all here in this most recent book. I am very happy to tell you all that I got the chance to personally buy this new book of Sacred from Lizbeth R. Jimenez herself, she's a very well spoken, cute, and fun artist/story teller who is also quite humble. (forgive me I'm being a fan girl, but I can't help it she's so nice!) The story itself reflects a lot about this author/artist and gives us a very fun, and yet serious story into a world that is quite "Mejic." In this recent volume we are also introduced to a new character named Vandela who has not yet fully awakened, but clearly has faced some horrors in her life. The poor girl needs to adjust but how can someone who is so normal and clearly traumatized just fall into this grand world? The boys of course try to help her along her way and they are a fun crew whose light and raunchy humor kept me laughing out loud like a school girl multiple times. There are some very endearing scenes in this book as well as very cool art work. Though, the story itself proves to have a sad and dangerous undertone that is leading us the readers down a path that will probably lead to a whole lot of sorrow... Really, a perfect combination of humor and seriousness just cooked to perfection. Poor Lady Alumrion is seeing history being made when students begin to dissapear and clearly this isn't something that has or should happen so what will happen? Will Grandome survive will Sheko and Cecero and everyone they know be okay? I don't know! All I know is I loved this latest volume of Sacred and am going to read it again and perhaps there will be a clue as to what volume 4 will hold? A fantastically magical read my fellow readers, way to go Jimenez!
