Review

Rating: 5

A graphic novel juxtaposing the trials and tribulations of being a teenager with the discovery that one is a changeling. In this case, the hero Astrid, discovers she’s the daughter of Titania and Oberon. Though the plot is somewhere between standard manga fare (Card Captor Sakura, perhaps) and indie comics about teens, and not terribly inspired, the scenes between the teens ring true and the dialogue is well-written. I also like the notion of three sisters vying for rulership of faerie (well, two of them vying and the third and eldest taking a hands-off role).
