A little bit of magic; a little bit of adventure, a little too much love for magical creatures and a little bit of drama. I absolutely adore the presentation of the graphic novel. The artstyle is everything!
The story is quite interesting as it involves a little bit of mystery as well.
Perfect for the target audience (middle grades), I feel it's a good start for those who want to start reading graphic novels.
Engaging and fun, this one is going to make a rather adventurous reading session.
The highlight for me is the character dynamics.
Go for this one. It's fun and entertaining.
Thank you, Andrews McMeel, for the advance reading copy.
Meet Sorceline. A young apprentice under Archibald Balzar, studying cryptozoology and competing with five other students to become his assistant by the end of the summer. But it is no ordinary summer on the Isle of Vorn. Zombie pixies. Petrified statues. No cryptid nor human seems to be safe from the strange plot that is unfolding. And Sorceline and Willa take it upon themselves to solve this mystery - before more people get hurt.
I loved reading this book. The mystery was thrilling, the twists and turns kept on my toes, and the amazing illustrations drew me into the atmosphere and the world. I could not put this book down until I read the final page! The characters were endearing, and I am excited to get to know them better when the rest of the books are translated. I found the illustrations beautiful, atmospheric, and drew me right into this magical world.
I had so much fun reading this graphic novel. I am excited to follow Sorceline's adventures in future books to come, and I definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys beautiful graphic novels, stories with magical creatures, and a mystery that keeps you guessing around every turn.
I love the use of fantasy, the colorful nature of the book, and the sense of adventure. I would gladly share this book with young readers.
The artwork in Soceline is amazing! My 10 year old son loved that there was some mystery but it was also very magical. He is extremely anxious to read more about Sorceline! I also thought that it was a good story. The artwork on the cover is what initially drew me to this book. After reading the description, I felt that it was a book my son would love- and he did!
