The digest: a fast-paced easy-to-read urban fantasy with a heavy focus on magically-inspired bounty hunting. Recommended to urban fantasy fans or those seeking a break from long, dense, traditional fantasy novels.
The digest: a highly stylized graphic novel which follows Lya's attempt to uncover the reckless driver who put her in a wheelchair the day before her seventeenth birthday. The story is good, the setting believable, and the artwork simply amazing. If you like lowkey revenge/investigative plots and/or diverse casts then this is for you.
The digest: building on everything that made the first volume so enjoyable, I cannot recommend this comic book highly enough to anyone with an interest in Greek myths and retellings. If you have read my review for Alcyon #1, you already know pretty much everything I'm going to say here.
The digest: Do you like comics? Do you like myth retellings/adaptations? If so then this issue is a must-read. This is a great start to what seems to be a promising story, with fantastical elements and interesting characters/
The digest: Enjoyable artwork and cool character design, but probably only worth a look if you've read the previous series (The Only Living Boy).
The digest: The Sleeping Dragon is a much-needed break from usual fantasy fare. It is an uncomplicated, engaging novel which I wholeheartedly recommend to anyone looking for a less strenuous fantasy story. Expect laughs and tears alike.
The digest: A thought-provoking myth-retelling which I encourage you all to pick up. If you like how meticulous Gaiman's research and writing is, then you will be right at home here!
The digest: A highly entertaining paranormal urban fantasy showing the less glamorous side of vampiric life. This is not a serious tome focusing solely on vampirism and all it entails - though you will find gruesome and gritty elements here in heaps. It's a pop-culture referencing, smoothly written, funny, easily digestible, and highly recommended break away from both the overly-serious Dracula tales and the flowery Twilight books.
The digest: an essay about the relationship between women and power in the 21st Century in the broadest of terms. This accessible volume serves as a good introduction to what more needs to be done in tackling the issues revolving around women, the patriarchy, and our relationship with power. Supported by Classical and contemporary examples, any modern-minded person will surely find something thought-provoking here.
The digest: An overhyped graphic novel proves to be overhyped. Its execution is severely lacking, meaning that whilst the underlying premise is a decent one, I'd struggle to recommend this graphic novel to anyone.
