Overview

Meridian is the story of Sephie, a sheltered young girl whose life resembles nothing so much as a fairy tale. The beloved only child of the Minister of Meridian, she grows up with an entire floating city as her playground. Then her father dies, and she inherits a sigil imbued with the power to create. So does her wicked Uncle Ilahn, except that his powers are bent on destruction and domination. Suddenly Sephie finds herself at the center of a power struggle, and quickly she learns that there is more than love in the world. Kidnapped to the world of Calador, Sephie's journey home to Meridian puts her in the path of many people good and bad that help her grow up and counter Ilahn's plans to take over her world.

Editorial Reviews

Voya
These graphic novels can be read on several levels, just like DUNE. Those who love adventure can focus on that, those who like political intrigue will be satisfied, and others will be engaged by the ecological backstory of the planet

    Simply put, great comics!!

    This book shouldn't be good but its terrific. The book was great when it came out about 8 years ago and its still fantastic. Kesel, Middleton, & McNiven deliver in this harrowing tale of young Sephie and her murderous uncle. Their world is rich and detailed and the book id perfect for all ages and genders. Its so depressing that this company bottomed out because this book could have been epic!

    Excellent Series

    This is an excellent graphic novel series for tween and teen girls (and boys). On the world of Demetria, most people live on floating islands, traveling between them on great, winged galleons. When Sephie's father dies, her uncle attempts to seize control of their island of Meridian. Sephie and her allies are forced to flee. Lots of adventure, a touch of chaste romance, compelling characters, a well-realized world, and terrific artwork. Highly recommended.
