Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Quest sagas require an occasional injection of new characters, settings, and dangers to keep the narrative moving, and this colorful and engrossing graphic novel supplies an abundance of novelty. The Cobalt Prince plunges Oona and her friends into mortal danger and keeps the level of suspense high throughout this volume. This series' two writers and three illustrators manage to keep all narrative elements working in harmony, although sometimes the meaning of the action seems a little obscure, especially during fight scenes. Fans of Naruto and Avatar: The Last Airbender will likely find The Cobalt Prince to their liking, but so will readers who simply enjoy a well-told tale of intergalactic magic and intrigue.
