School Library Journal

Gr 9 & Up - Sixteen-year-old June, a fiery, stubborn student, is a contender to be the Queen of Light in her magical world. Her topmost opponent is shy, soft-spoken Lucia, and the two girls also vie for the attention of handsome Sejuru, June's longtime childhood friend. When the rivalry between the girls intensifies, hijinks ensue. This first volume (of a forecasted series of eight) is typical manhwa fare, showcasing beautiful characters with large, expressive eyes and long swirling tendrils of hair. The plot offers high action and stops often to poke fun at itself and other popular manga series (such as "Sailor Moon"), making for a decidedly light story. June, Lucia, and Sejuru's characters are not particularly well developed and are somewhat flat in this volume. Their world is also not clearly defined for readers with no definitive understanding of an overall schema besides the mundane assignment of "light" and "dark" for good and evil. Teens will most likely enjoy the book without a hitch, though, especially in its moments of parody and the frothy romantic setup. An additional purchase for most libraries.-Jennifer Feigelman, Goshen Public Library and Historical Society, NY
