Comments: Donny Dahlia has a dangerous job. It does get exciting as he knocks on a door and things explode in his face. Donny though keeps his cool and reacts accordingly.
Donny in the now and present time does get a delivery job and a partner Big Molly Bloom.
Now in this world changings are natural way of controlling humanity or ephemerals as the changelings call them. Yes, mermaids, werewolves, and harpies all exist here and more.
Kyne is a changing and he is after Donny and Big Molly Bloom. Whatever they are delivering is important and worth killing for.
Things take an interesting turn as Maya Luna is shown she is a beautiful young fairy. This young Princess is going to cause Donny so much trouble.
A modern story of gangsters and mythical creatures interacting with loads of danger. Plus a few surprises popping up. The art is done beautifully as it shows off each character.
Maya and Donny are getting into all sorts of danger, Maya is like the most wanted fairy ever. She and Donny are both characters you will find yourself routing for. Maya is in danger yet she is so fun-loving and still enjoys life.
Galvonus a powerful fairy makes his move and Maya is gone from Donny. Donny though does not give up and neither does the Princess. The stakes are high for all involved. All involved want something and will fight and kill to get it.
A couple of times the artist seems to have forgotten to draw an eye on the characters. It does stand out making it very noticeable.
The fairy army is impression and they look more futuristic than you might expect. The King and Princess are on opposite sides here. Each has an army and both are ready for battle. They do fight and in the end, the Fae win.
The ending here is one of both happiness and sadness. It will leave you feeling both.
