Tara?  Still very angry with Morgan at losing her crown and her city.  Morgan?  Understanding, yet needs Tara to be aware that her people need her more than ever right now for what good is a dead monarch?  In the meantime Travis, Tara and the rest of the refugees need somewhere safe to stay and getting there will be hard, harder even because the New Atlanteans will not let them go easily.  Cary Burkett and Dan Jurgens continue to provide thrills aplenty in this latest issue and it is good to see our heroes do something a little different than the norm.  Usually it is Morgan and Tara and the rest of the companions who bring the battle to their foes and in this storyline, it is the exact opposite.  Seeing them on the run is a refreshing thing and a test of character for both Morgan and Tara.  So far, Tara has let her feelings get the better of her but after hearing Morgan out and reassessing the situation, she now knows what it is she has to do and nothing will stop her from reclaiming her kingdom.  There is one moment in the book that is a little awkward to read and that is the moment when Morgan calms his beloved down.  Tara is supremely mad and when she has her blow-up at Morgan, essentially blaming him for everything, the rest of the book goes on as if it were status quo.  That one little plot point gets lost amongst the rest of the book and if Tara has forgiven Morgan it was not made known and so it is that Tara just letting all that anger go in the blink of an eye is a little unbelievable.  Other than that, the book is a lot of fun.  We also find out that Graemore did indeed make it out alive and is now in the camp with everyone else.  Of course, we discover that Morgan has a plan, and has there ever been a time when he has not had a plan, and thinks that it could be the key to saving everyone and putting everything back into balance.
