Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review It's no secret that I'm a big fan of this graphic novel series, and this third installment definitely lived up to expectations! . . . Outstanding. --MuggleNet.com Oona, with her bright blue skin and joyful dancing, again lights up the pages as new allies, some with conflicts or agendas of their own, join the notably diverse cast on the way to a tense, explosive climax. . . . Dazzling. --Kirkus Reviews Nicely paced and with moving character growth, this installment, bearing an unsettling resemblance to our own current political climate, carries the sci-fi quest along compellingly. --Booklist More Praise for 5 Worlds: A magical journey, as fun as it is beautiful! --Kazu Kibuishi, #1 New York Times bestselling creator of AMULET Bang-zoom . . . a series that promises to be epic. --The New York Times This stellar team has created a gorgeous and entrancing world like no other! --Noelle Stevenson, New York Times bestselling author of Nimona Epic action, adventure, and mystery will draw you in, but the heartfelt characters and their seemingly impossible journey will keep you turning the pages. --Lisa Yee, author of the DC Super Hero Girls(TM) series This thrilling adventure subtly examines prejudice and power in an entertaining, propulsive package. --Booklist The adventure continues, growing grander of scale and if possible even more lavish in visual detail. --Kirkus Reviews Richly rendered settings await lovers of sci-fi world-building, and there is plenty of adventure as truths are uncovered. . . Give to fans of Judd Winick's HILO or Kazu Kibuishi's Amulet series. --SLJ This sweeping graphic-novel saga features inventive world-building, with history, mythology, and traditions naturally integrated into the narrative.
