Publisher’s Summary: “Bree Hale has left a lot behind in her life. Crime. The military. But she can’t leave behind her own family, and when the local crime boss puts a hit out on her brother, there’s nothing she won’t do to save him. Absolutely nothing. Skybound’s pulse-pounding action series returns, with writer JUSTIN JORDAN (REAVER, LUTHER STRODE) and artist BENJAMIN TIESMA delivering an explosive tale of revenge like you’ve never seen before!”

Review:

Unfortunately, the quiet retirement that Bree Hale carved out for herself, and had so richly deserved, can only last so long as it takes for her brother to get into some serious and potentially deadly peril. It turns out that is not very long at all. Hunter messed up big time, crossed the wrong person, and as much as Bree would have preferred not to need to resort to extreme measures, her hand is forced. Her old ways are brought to the surface and she has to act quickly, and with her most effective and brutal skills.

Justin Jordan brings Bree Hale back into the chaotic mix of her life in a story about family. A violent, criminal family to be sure, but Dead Body Road: Bad Blood is also about those unspoken things that have to be done for family, because of family and very much in spite of them.

The Bottom Line

With the return of Bree Hale in Dead Body Road: Bad Blood, it does not take long for her to get back into the action she thought she had left behind. This time the job is all about family, but that does not make the situation any less dangerous.

Review: Amazon Prime’s ‘Mangrove’

Although it takes place half a century ago, Mangrove feels relatable in its political relevance and its personal narratives. Come for the story, stay for the unexpected sense of hope that it brings.
