It's about this girl Kasumi, who has a disease called Medusa. Basically, your cells turn into a clay like substance and you die. 160 people were but into cryotubes until a cure was created. When they awaken from their sleep the lab is overrun with thorns and there's dinosaur-like creatures running about. A group of seven, the only survivors, are trying to escape without getting themselves killed. The main character is completely obsessed with her twin sister (who's probably dead) and never stops thinking about her (which sucks because we read all of her thoughts). She's really kind and sweet and all but she doesn't want to live because she's not with her twin and it's pretty depressing. The only other character of note is Tattoo guy who we find out is named Marco. He's really badass and fights the monsters, saves the group countless times, and is also an expert hacker. How will that come in handy in this apocalyptic book? I guess we'll find out!… (més)

This added more questions by hinting at a medusa virus conspiracy while not answering any old questions. Why is it post apocalypse? How did their chambers open if they only do so from the outside? What's up with the creepy girl in the cape? SOMETHING needs to be answered.

This volume is causing the series to risk becoming cluttered, from a plot standpoint. Coming into this volume, the plot had the main driving conflict of "How do these characters, which are almost all infected with a disease that could kill them, survive in this post-apocalyptic world with massive thorny plants that have consumed everything, and also freaking dinosaurs?"

There was also the question of "How did we go from the world that these characters were in when they went into cryo, into the world with the aforementioned plants and dinosaurs?"

This volume, unfortunately, does nothing to answer these questions, and instead Iwahara decides to add a third plot thread to the mix, related to some sort of conspiracy theory about the virus - which at present does nothing to explain any of the earlier questions.

I'm going to keep reading this series, but I do hope that Iwahara learned something from the X-Files and Lost, that too many questions without a hint that there are answers coming doesn't keep your audience hooked - it burns them out.
