A secret worth sharing…
After suddenly awakening, completely alone and with mysterious injuries, Christine has no recollection of who or where she is. She finds herself pursued by dragons, rogue magicians, and an heiress hell-bent on revenge. Through her own instinct and intuition, Christine must try and piece together the story of her life. Who is a friend and who is a foe? Who had she been and who will she become? Sometimes it is only in our most vulnerable moments that we are able to find our true inner strength.
This first issue follows 16-year-old Christine, who after a tragic accident is left with no memories. This first issue sets up the characters and tackles a bit about their relationship. We get a good bit of information and a whole lot of mysteries.
I loved Christine. She’s a quirky, clumsy girl, that I fell for instantly. Who seems to spend quite a bit of her time daydreaming, but considering her situation it’s understandable. She’s a cinnamon roll, and I need to know who’s after her. Like what could this literal summer child have done?
Now on to Michael. To put it simply, I don’t trust him. While I feel a have a good grasp on Christine’s character, Michael is an enigma. He’s Christine’s caretaker, and there seem to be some romantic feelings between him and Christine. But, he’s hiding something. He’s cold and distant, but I can tell he (hopefully) cares about Christine.
And the artwork for this is amazing, like look at this:
This is my favorite panel in this issue, it’s breathtaking. Katy Arrington did an amazing job illustrating this issue!
Then at the end, readers are treated to a series of shorts. In these shorts, we get more insight into Christine’s day to day life with Micheal and their cute little dog, Dragon. The shorts had to be my favorite, you got to see more of the characters and were able to get a firmer grasp on who they are and their personalities.
I can’t wait to get my hands on the next issue for this, it seems to be the start of a really interesting adventure and I can’t wait to see what happens next. It’s really good, and I recommend it to everyone. But especially to those who enjoy fantasy/historical graphic novels.
Also, I just want to say thank you to Sabrina Kidd, for sending this to me!
