Gamora has been sent to retrieve the heart of the planet, Torndune. Little does she know that her sister, Nebula has followed her there in order to claim the heart of the planet first as revenge for Gamora causing the loss of her arm, but there are other forces at work on this planet that also want the heart for their own purposes. In addition, the Grandmaster has his own agenda and is working with a mysterious guest in a game that is sure to have dire consequences. Can Nebula and Gamora learn to trust each other enough in order to survive this deadly game?

Gamora and Nebula: Sisters in Arms clearly takes place before the events of the movie, Guardians of the Galaxy. Lady Death, who is an important figure in the comics makes an appearance here in this story as well as Thanos. The characters are not well defined in this story, but that can be forgiven, as these characters are already well known from movies and comics. The story is fast paced with lots of action and adventure as well as some political intrigue with a few twists and turns. Overall, Gamora and Nebula: Sisters in Arms is a satisfying story, especially for fans of the movies and comics. ( )

Two orphans taken in by Thanos, a wealthy man whose personality made me want to wash with a Brillo pad, are raised to dislike and distrust each other. Their successes and failures during training and on subsequent missions are always used by him as double edged swords to maintain distrust and tension between them. When Nebula is ensnared during a mission and ends up trapped, her sister, Gamora tosses her one of her Electroknives. When Nebula is unable to cut through the restraints that are slowly frying one side of her body, she’s forced to sever her arm with it. Thus begins a twisting tale where the sisters are competing without either fully aware of the circumstances on a dying planet. The story is well crafted and full of action, but the manipulation by their foster father, not to mention a number of other, equally despicable entities, left me with a bad taste in my mouth at the conclusion. I don’t think I’ve encountered a more unlikable and soulless character than Thanos in all my years of reading fiction. ( )

I’m Coming for You, Sister

Mackenzi Lee weaves an adventurous tale, that hints at the lives of Gamora and Nebula before Guardians of the Galaxy. Sent to retrieve the heart of a dying planet, Gamora just wants to get the job done before it kills her. What she doesn’t know is that Nebula is following her, determined to get revenge. On opposite sides of a deadly mining dispute, which one will win this game of lies?

Mackenzi Lee does a lot of world building, describing the crumbling planet of Torndune with great detail. Including a corrupt Universal Church of Truth, which gives the Marvel Universe a cynical view of religion. There is a whole cast of primarily female characters throughout the book. So, there is LGBTQ flirting if you squint, which is mostly used for humor. Though, the majority of these characters are plot driven and defined by their poor living conditions. Mackenzi Lee half-heartedly, and very inconsistently, gives Torndune characters such as Varsa an uneducated dialect. As for Gamora and Nebula, it is expected that their characterization would be mechanical. All this combined make this book a bit of a depressing and dry read.

Gamora and Nebula’s relationship, is the reason to read this book. Like the movies, they both have to survive living with Thanos, and being sisters is complicated. Gamora is entirely determined to survive no matter the cost, while Nebula wants to be acknowledged. This paired with the discordant desire to be sisters and find kindness, is what makes them interesting characters. Mackenzi Lee does explore this complex relationship well. With plenty of action and fighting, this book is exactly what you would expect a Gamora and Nebula book to be. The ending is not exactly MCU cannon, but there are plenty of marvel AUs that it’s possible. ( )
