With this reading, I complete the series since the series overall got cancelled by the end of issue 8. However, the author and artists decided to go out with a bit explosion of mayhem, giving us an ending of epic proportions.

Trace Morales, trucker for the Ghost Fleet, had his truck stolen, and he is somewhat insane now. He will go through any lengths to get the truck back and keep its cargo from being unleashed. To complicate things, the Ghost Fleet has sent a hit man after Trace, but that may be the least of Trace's concerns.

The volume picks up right where volume 1 left off. It does not let got until the very end. The action is intense and nonstop as the inevitable reckoning arrives. The volume also features great art drawn with solid skill. It is a pity the series was cancelled as the concept had great potential. Overall, this was one I really liked.

4 out of 5 stars.

This book qualifies for the following 2016 Reading Challenges:
