Sacred Creatures #4
In Issue #3 of Sacred Creatures, Naviel is murdered and disintegrates into ash. Elsewhere, Julia Porter gives birth. In Issue #4, we are transported back in time to see Naviel’s choices that lead to her death. In the present while Josh is being questioned by the NYPD, Sophia (a.k.a. Pulchra/Personification of the Deadly Sin of Lust) has a task of her own; Steal Julia’s newborn baby.
This issue was definitely an interesting read, with a retelling of the events leading to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Issue #4 keeps up with the common theme in fantasy that even powerful supernatural beings can make the most human of choices. And those choices could have deadly consequences. Definitely a must have for fans of the series and a recommended read for fans of The Mortal Instruments series.
