I had an amazing time reading this book. It is a graphic novel, comic style book. But I loved the design of the characters, the artwork and the overall flow of the dialogue. It is a bit fast-moving as this is only 81 pages long. And when you have graphic novel type books like this, 81 pages is not a lot.
The story starts right away. There is some minor blood and violence. And I would have liked to have gotten the know the Prince a little more. As the story is told majority from Ebony‘s point of view.
Overall I really like the overall plot and the overall premises of this book. Be warned, it does end on a cliffhanger and that made me extremely sad because I want to know what’s going to happen to our dear prince.
on a hold this book is very enjoyable, it hooked me and like I said, the artwork is just stunning. So please take my super high recommendation and my sample approval, that you are going to just fall for this short but amazing graphic novel.
