Master storyteller Jane Yolen (Owl Moon, Sword of the Rightful King) and celebrated fantasy artist Rebecca Guay (Swamp Thing, Magic: The Gathering) weave a textured and lyrical tale of adventure, homelands, and heroism the hard way.Two hundred years ago, humans drove the dragons from the islands of May. Now, the last of the dragons rises to wreak havoc anew — with only a healer’s daughter and a kite-flying would-be hero standing in its way.
The first thing that impressed me when starting this graphic novel was the artwork. Oh my god jumping mushrooms this is amazing! Cheers for the artist for managing to create such a wonderful and magical environment. The story seems a bit fairy-tale-ish but overall is not bad, and the whole read left me with a pretty satisfying feeling in the end. My only problem was related to the speech bubbles and other comic book elements used by the designer. They didn’t match the style of the rest of the book.
This story is recommended for young adult/fantasy readers that are, of course, into graphic novels as well.
