There are two story elements which I think will hold my long-term interest for a while. The first is the budding romance between Tony and food critic Amelia Mintz. The second is the various food powers belonging to some of the characters. Tony Chu is a cibopath, meaning he instantly accesses the back story for anything he eats. A couple of new powers are introduced in Volume Two:
- A cibolocutor communicates exclusively through cooking. Entire Shakespeare plays or Verdi operas are translated into food.
- Another skill goes unnamed, at least so far: one character can, by eating a person, gain all of his or her specialized knowledge. Yup, gross, I know. That's Chew for you.
