Book Review: DARK SWAN by RICHELE MEAD’S STORM BORN SERIES

WHO DOESN’T LIKE A BADASS HEROINE? Graphic Novel Caption: Eugenie Markham never asked for any of this. Until now, she’s been content with her job as a freelance shaman, battling and banishing Otherworldly creatures. When a prophecy suddenly makes her the Otherworld’s most popular bachelorette, Eugenie finds herself fighting off unwanted supernatural suitors, as well as the evils that begin emerging from her past…   My Thoughts: Looking for a new graphic novel series to get in to?  Storm Born is that series.  I have to admit I was little trepidatious in beginning the series, but after jumping into it, I was hooked.  The story line is good, the graphics are spectacular and each issue left me thirsting for the one to follow.  What more could you ask for in a successful series except when is the next issue due out?  LoL.  I Loved It and it is definitely a must read. After reading issue 1 & 2, I give this series 5 stars and I can’t wait til the next issue comes out. Share this:ShareTwitterRedditPrintFacebookGoogleEmailDiggStumbleUponPinterestTumblrLinkedIn

Book Review: SHIEWO: A FANTASY FLIGHT TO ADVENTURE (Book 1 of Shiewo’s Odyssey)

I just finished reading Ciye Cho’s, Shiewo: A Fantasy Flight to Adventure.  It is for the 13 and up group, and I must say that I would definitely let my pre-teen and early teen cousins read it.  The story seemed truly youthful and vibrant; full of colorful characters, wild adventures, and dangers.  It is a good read to get the imagination going.  There are a few missed edits, but not many, so it doesn’t distract from the story.

Ciye Cho is very talented.  If you get a chance, visit her website that goes along with this book series and see what I mean.  Cho’s hands were everywhere in the creation of this series, it’s soundtrack, and it’s interactive site.  Before I received this book, I was very anxious to read it because of the website and book trailer, which I’ve included at the bottom.  So let your pre-teen/early teens delve into Shiewo’s world full of adventure and fun.  The book itself I gave 3 1/2 Stars, but with everything else that comes with it, I have to round it out to an even 4 Stars. 

 

An Overview of the Story:

The universe of Orberana is a place of great wonder and peril, a dizzying landscape filled with clouds that can talk, clockwork beings that mark their own time, and painted animals that awake in the night.

Shiewo Morose is the captain of a flying ship powered by music. She is also a determined young woman on a mission: a quest to find the Wishing Fish that created Orberana.

Sailing above the clouds, Shiewo and her crew (Erduu the bamboo, Theo the cloud, Livingston the goldfish, and Felix the painter) are headed for worlds of crazed clockwork bureaucrats, tyrannic kings, and tornado children—worlds that will test not only the crew’s bravery… but their very understanding of adventure.

Theirs is the odyssey of a lifetime…
