The City of Owls picks up where Volume 1 left off, the Talons have been released onto Gotham and the Court of Owls are up to no good. It's a shame that the best fight scene is at the start of the book, Batman fights off Talons in the Bat Cave and even has to use some tech to get the upper hand. There is another fight at the conclusion of the story but it leaves something to be desired as there is no real end to the story, it just kind of stops...
But then something annoying happens. DC decided to lump two tie-ins with this story. So as soon as you've finished reading the actual story you wanted to read, which ends as a tease, you then get a story about Harper (she helped Batman in Volume 1) and one about Mr. Freeze. One goes on too long and the other is too short so the book ends on a bit of a dud.
So decent ending to the Owls story-line which leaves things open but then hangs about too long with two tie-ins which are worth a read once but you'll probably forget them within a day...
