Twilight meets the legend of Atlantis in this gripping graphic novel from writer Joelle Sellner and artist Abby Boeh. After the death of her beloved mother, Aryn’s father has moved her family to a new town hoping for a fresh start. At first things seem to be going well–Aryn is making friends and has even caught the eye of one of the hottest guys in school. But there are dark forces moving under the surface that Aryn cannot see; and her new crush may not be … human.

Released May 2nd 2017 UK

I’m sorry but I did’t like this. It was really beautiful to look at, but the dialogue felt really unnatural and stilted. There also seemed to be a cliche around every corner. The basic premise for the story was good, and I imagine if it is developed further it could get really interesting. Maybe a sequel or two may help!

Received an advanced copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Finished on January 5th 2017
