Rat Queens Vol. 2: Far Reaching Tentacles of N’rygoth by Kurtis J. Wiebe
♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦
We follow the Rat Queens again through their second issue, where they discover the problems they were having in the previous issue is intertwined with the issues of someone in the village they didn’t expect. As they and others struggle to figure out what is going on, Dee realizes that she can no longer run her past as her religion’s god appears above the town.
The Rat Queens had figured out that they and the other parties in Palisade were sent on suicide missions to be killed not by the Mayor, like they all thought, but through a merchant who has a thirst for vengeance against the sheriff of Palisade. This merchant has found a way to not only bring about the end of Palisade but through a way to bring about the end of the world. And the only person that can really stop and save them all is Dee, our favorite atheist cleric. Her family and their religion are something that Dee wishes she could forget, but when she sees the gods of her religion come down from the sky, she knows that she needs to do all that she can to stop them.
As Dee wrestles with herself, her religion, and her family that starts to come back from her past, she realizes that there are a lot of things that she will have to deal with rather than just shove in the past. And in doing so, she learns more about herself and her past that she would have wanted to learn; now she just needs to figure out what she wants to do with this information.
Again, D&D adventure girls and their lives and I love it! I just need to figure out what to read next in this series or if just to leave it at this, because I’ve heard that there is a reboot of it and it’s all topsy-turvy…jeez!!!
