Editorial Reviews

VOYA
This novel offers a unique glimpse into the past by presenting bits of history woven into the plot, which quickly becomes the most interesting part of the book. The story itself drags on with none of the excitement or suspense you are expecting. Although the cover art is a style that might have captured the feel of the story, the subsequent artwork appears very bland with an overuse of crass-hatching that adds nothing. VOYA CODES: 2Q 2P S G (Better editing or work by the author might have warranted a 3Q; For the YA with a special interest in the subject; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12; Graphic Novel Format). 2005, Image Comics, 168p., Trade pb. Ages 15 to 18.
