An intriguing and beautifully illustrated sci-fi graphic novel you need to read more than once to fully appreciate.

Author – Lucy HollandPages – 416 A very well written, charming historical fiction-fantasy with interesting characters and an obvious passion for the history and folklore, which shines throughout.
