From the description:
"Before he was Robin, Batman's son Damian Wayne was raised by his mother, Talia al Ghul, to lead the vicious League of Assassins--a clandestine army obssessed with world domination. Now, the son of Batman has fully freed himself from that destiny and is about to embark on a globe-spanning quest to atone for the horrible acts he commited during the most brutal portion of his old life--THE YEAR OF BLOOD!"
The book has plenty of action and intrigue. The story moves back and forth between scenes from Damian's Year of Blood and the modern day when he is atoning and undoing things he did during that year. The book has a good pace, and I found myself drawn into the story right away, curious to see where it led. As the story got deeper, I got more curious. Another reason to pick this comic up is for the art. The artists do make Robin look great, and the overall art of the comic is very good as well. I enjoyed this volume overall, and I will likely pick the next one up to see where things go.
For libraries that already collect Batman titles, they will want to add this one as well. If you already got titles like Batman and Son and/or Batman and Robin: Requiem for Damian, you need to have this one as well.
