They have definitely saved the best until last. This is a far cry from the shaky beginnings of volume one. By embracing the Indian culture and mythology we are given a much richer tale. There is genuine drama and real tension running through the book.
The art is equally rich but seems change midway through shifting from fuzzy, almost impressionistic, images to crisp and sharp renderings. There are some well-constructed vignettes and beautiful perspective bringing a great deal of depth to the page.
This is the best of the volumes and presents a satisfying conclusion, probably slightly different from the one you were expecting.
