Alison Dare is not your typical twelve-year-old. She's the daughter of an archaeologist/adventurer and the masked hero known as the Blue Scarab. To top it off, she's also the niece of an international super-spy; it's no surprise that a craving for danger is in her blood! Unfortunately, her parents have locked her away at the prestigious St. Joan's Academy for Girls, hoping that this would lead to a more "normal" life for their daughter.
But despite all the strict rules at the school, Alison and her best pals - Wendy and Dot - somehow manage to find themselves involved in adventures that rival those of Alison's globetrotting, planet-saving relatives. Whether it's magic genies, super-powered bank robbers, or a dastardly baron bent on world domination, Alison Dare delivers the best thrills since Indiana Jones and more action than Lara Croft!

Alison Dare the Heart of the Maiden was a fun little graphic novel. A nice short young adult oriented adventure tale about a young girl named Alison Dare. Her Mom is a famous archeologist and her dad is a super hero. Having big shoes to fill she seems to look for adventure and or trouble everywhere she can. Throw in some humor and great artwork and you got a good mix for a very entertaining graphic novel. I give it two thumbs up.
