Picking up where GLC: Recharge left off, To Be A Lantern follows the newly initiated Lantern/Hottie Soranik Natu as she finds her footing. Also, the friendship between Raanian and Thanagarian enemies Vath Sarn and Isamot Kol continues. Lastly, and most humorously, Guy Gardner finally browbeats Salaak into granting him shore leave. . . with some very amusing results.

The book culminates with Gardner and Chthos-Chthas Chtatis engaging in a rescue mission on the sentient city of Ranx, an episode that had me giggling with intense nerdish glee on a New Jersey Transit bus.
