The power of the goddess is unrivaled. Forged by the strength of the gods, the force the goddess Devi retains is meant to bring balance among gods and men. But the current Devi Incarnate is different. Her female host, Tara Mehta, is still alive and struggles to comprehend the awesome responsibility she now faces. Humanity is threatened by the fallen Lord Bala and salvation rests in the hands of a goddess-torn in two. Devi wields the power of the gods, but now the virtue that makes the female entity so distinct, yet so vulnerable: compassion. The Divine and Diabolical collide in an epic battle, culminating in a night of reckoning in Devi: Samvara, the exciting sequel to the first trade paperback!

Devi, Volume 2: Samvara based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Looking at volume 2 of this series, I'd still say that my criticism of the first volume still stand -- there's nothing here that's stylistically different from most comics. Having said that, however, Devi's storyline is actually pretty intriguing. The story of the reluctant goddess and her battles against Bala have grown on me and they're doing a good job of fleshing out some of the characters. There's an interesting moral ambivalence about the gods in the series and one is not always sure that the gods are all that loving or interested in our fate. Even the villains have a certain complexity -- though Lord Bala is still a bit stereotypically steroid-infused sort of supervillain. I'm looking forward to reading the third volume.
