Told in graphic novel form, Muirwood: The Lost Abbey introduces an all-new chapter in Jeff Wheeler’s Muirwood universe.
Maia, the daughter of the king of Comoros, has been banished, her rank and station taken away. Although magic is forbidden of women in her world, Maia secretly learned...and now her desperate father has sent her on a dangerous quest to save their kingdom. Protected by a hired killer, Maia voyages to another realm—the cursed shores of Dahomey, where an ancient Blight has destroyed all the inhabitants. Maia believes she can restore the deadly lands by using her magic medallion, but if she’s discovered wielding her clandestine power, she will most certainly be hunted down and killed.
From renowned fantasy writers Jeff Wheeler, Matt Sturges (Jack of Fables, House of Mystery), and Dave Justus (Fables: The Wolf Among Us), featuring stunning art by Alex Sheikman (Dark Crystal: Creation Myths) and Lizzy John (Dark Crystal: Creation Myths). Covers by Inaki Miranda (Fairest).
Muirwood: The Lost Abbey will be available in print at your local comic store and digitally via comiXology and the Amazon Kindle Store.
I haven't read many graphic novels and I don't know why, since I am loving this genre. Gotta get on reading more of them!
Muirwood had good artwork, it matched the story completely. PS: it isn't as good as you see in the cover though, but it's still pleasing to the eyes.
It took me a while to understand what's going on (actually, I'm not even sure I still fully understand), there are a lot of fantasy elements that are part of this story, a lot of names that I could never remember, basically you gotta focus and read again and focus even better. Or maybe I just have crappy memory. That could be too.
I haven't gotten that attached to the characters... all I know is that Maia is an alright chick, her father is pretty much an ass, there's a kid who's absolutely adorable and some creepy blind dudes that can somehow see?? Hmm.
