After loving the first graphic novel, I couldn’t resist the urge to cannonball right into the next one. So, was this a home run? Keep on reading to find out!

Holy moly, this graphic novel was fantastic!
After narrowly escaping their enemies, Wynd and his allies continue their quest to reach the Duke. However, they soon learn they have more enemies than they thought and must move quickly to avoid terrifying collateral damage. Can they escape with their lives and without excess bloodshed?
This was a masterpiece of a graphic novel.
The art was superbly handled. It has a style similar to anime/manga without being too juvenile. Each page is gorgeous. I would find myself delaying moving forward because I just wanted to take in the beauty of the art.
Our beloved characters keep surprising us in this adventure with their courage and bravery. Wynd discovers some things about himself that had me hooked to his part of the story, and I can’t wait to see how he progresses in the next volume.
I also really enjoyed the LGBT representation in Thorn and Teek. Heck, even the Prince had some nice developments along the way.
This world keeps getting bigger, and I loved exploring the strange dark forests and the bizarre spirits that live within. I have to note how well these authors are at creating scary unforgettable antagonists. There was tons of action, magic, terror, and even some romance! I couldn’t blaze through this fast enough, I’m addicted!
Can’t wait for the next one.
That’s A Wrap!
Well that’s it for this book review. I hope you enjoyed it!
