Ever since she appeared in our favorite ninja’s life, Roku has been something of an enigma. Her actions and demeanor seemed to be shadowing something deeper. Something harsh. From her first onset, she has captured readers attention, forcing us to contemplate who this woman, where did she come from, and why is she here. Just like our favorite ninja is thinking.

This was a refreshing story. We have a superhero story, an espionage story, and something ripped right out of HBO’S The wire. Probably one of the best chase scenes I have ever read. X-O finally starts to blend with the new world, and everyone might die. I’m in!
