The series is definitely hitting its stride now and the issue opens with Lara reflecting on how she met Sam as well as some adventures they went on together.
This issue definitely highlights the friendship/relationship between Sam and Lara and shows the trust they have in each other.
You also learn what the kidnappers are really after and I have to say it certainly wasn't what I was expecting.
Lara meanwhile is definitely not a scared survivor this time and shows it by going on the offensive.
A new character enters the scene towards the end but ends at a sort of cliffhanger as expected. Leaving you wondering who he is and what he wants.
