Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Quirky, charming, and beautifully drawn, this story follows Antimony Carver, a young girl with mystical gifts, and her adventures at a not-quite-normal boarding school. With rich color and manga-inspired character design, Siddell renders a setting that is part fantasy and part sf. Mythical beasts, ghosts, and robots populate Antimony's world, but she and her friend Kat confront it with spunk and humor. This pushes the darkness under the narrative's surface, where it's far more effective and thought-provoking. The characters, human or otherwise, feel at once normal, relatable, fantastical, and terrifying—a hallmark of all quality urban fantasy. Because it's more like a short story collection than a single narrative, this is best read chronologically (the first volume is available online at www.gunnerkrigg.com).Verdict For readers, especially teens, looking for fantasy fiction with strong female characters, this is a breath of fresh air amid all of the vampire books sitting on your shelf right now.—M.
