Coyotes Summary

Women are going missing in the City of Lost Girls, a border town in the desert.

Officer Frank Coffey is trying to get to the bottom of this when he meets Red. She’s a 13-year-old girl with a katana blade and a mission: murdering the Werewolves stalking the border and picking women off one by one.

When it’s discovered that the Wolves are the men of these villages, both Red and Officer Coffey are thrown together. They’re in a thriller of mythic proportions with the lives of their friends and loved ones in the balance.

I wish I was liking Coyotes more than I do, since it starts off really interesting. the story ends up being slightly too confusing to keep up with.

I’m not opposed to swearing, but I don’t like it in this one. I felt like the swearing in this series was just there for the heck of it. It’s feeling forceful and not fitting the story, which is a pity.

If you can’t take the characters seriously, what’s the point of having them. Our female lead’s sister dies at the hands of the werewolves and Red returns home. Once there, death happens to the remaining of her family, too.

It’s honestly a pity, really. Our female lead is not having time grieving nor have us really care too much about the death of her family. It’s just happening too quickly and then it’s done.

Reading it at INKR is a bit annoying, since the text is way too small and you have to zoom in constantly. It’s a pity but it’s something that should have been fixed for the online reading experience.

I’m honestly feeling a bit confused about the story, but I suppose it’s some type of allegory for the #MeToo movement or something.

One positive aspect is the panelling of the story. Sometimes it’s looking really good.

Final thoughts: Sadly I’m not loving the story. It feels like the creators are forcing the plot and characters. I think you can easily skip this story without missing anything.
