#BookReview: Geis II: A Game Without Rules (Geis #2) by Alexis Deacon




About the Book:
The second volume of Geis picks up right where the first graphic novel concluded: with the contenders divided against their will and thrown deeper into the mysterious game. Can the alliances of power be relied upon when so many rewards lay upon the line?

Deacons' stunning illustrations carry forward the compelling and critically acclaimed narrative as the trilogy reaches its midpoint.

About the Author:
Alexis Deacon graduated in 2001 with a first class honors degree in Illustration from the University of Brighton. Before graduating he was awarded the Burt Brill and Cardens award for the second best degree show at his University. The urge to draw has been with Alexis as long as he can remember. "I've probably drawn compulsively since the age of 3 or 4." Whenever he got bored playing with a particular toy as a child, rather than put it down and pick up something else as most kids would do he'd put the toy down and pick up a sketchbook to carry the game on through pictures on paper. He is best known for his children's picture books.

Notes and Opinions: This one for me was really weird. I did like it a little bit but I think it just wasn't for me. This has a lot of characters to remember and I dont think I ever got book one so it made this one lacking in what happened before.  If you have read book one I would keep it on hand becuase if you are anything like me you will need to go back and check to see who people are.  I was so lost with this one and even if I would have read book one. I still think that this one wouldnt have worked out to well either.  There are just to many people to keep track of. The story itself was pretty intersting though. 

Go Into This One Knowing: way to many characters
