A FlamesRising.com Review:
Kelley Barnes’ collection of characters almost does something I never expected. Only one of the five characters has any real supernatural ties (he senses dead people). Another character had a brush with it, which is why she can’t sleep without drugs or drink. The five characters for Legacy Security and Courier Services fit in to Spycraft or Shadowrun just as easily as they do their ended setting, which is the World of Darkness. They aren’t a Vigil, which the writer covers in a sidebar.
The layout works as in all World of Darkness releases. A collection of partial superimposed images are laid out as the border. In the larger books, the border makes more sense as the photos are distributed throughout the book. The images in this package are not to be found since all the artwork comes from Avery Butterworth’s characters. Nevertheless, the border looks good and has some nice aspects to it (the lonely shadow in the alleyway strikes well with me).
I’ve always liked the spattery Saw-like fonts for the World of Darkness and this continues to deliver just that.
The all-human cast isn’t as odd to me in this collection as it was in Calm Before the Storm. The characters come from all walks of life and are visually distinguished. Peter Sweeney or Morgan Welles are personal favs for me while I’m colder towards Lesley Porter. She just seems a little more frozen than the other four.
