I read Scion as it came out. When the book first came out I was around Ethan's age. I liked it, and it resonated with me somewhat because he was coming of age as I was. However at the end of the day I was more interested in the art and writing then I was in internalizing the themes of the book.
Now that I am in my late twenties, I reread the entire run again a few days ago. Being older, if not wiser, I felt the story in ways I never could when I was young. I went through an emotional roller coaster of crying when Ator died to being enraged when Yelena was forced to marry and sleep with Bron. It was a truly magical experience, one that I never had reading a comic before, and I just wanted to thank Ron for it, even if it is seven years too late.
