Hotel Dare Reviews

    Portals! Space pirates! Wizards! Woohoo!

    After my initial read I gave this graphic novel ⭐⭐⭐⭐. I enjoyed it more when I reread it yesterday and got even more out of the story during today’s third read. It has mystery, adventure and heart, plus there’s a badass granny!

    Charlotte is the newest member of the Dare family. She goes with Darwin, who has a female rat called Donut, and Olive, who identifies as queer and loves organising, to Mamá Lupe’s hotel in Mexico for the summer.

    Mamá Lupe has warned them

    After my initial read I gave this graphic novel ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I enjoyed it more when I reread it yesterday and got even more out of the story during today’s third read. It has mystery, adventure and heart, plus there’s a badass granny!

    Charlotte is the newest member of the Dare family. She goes with Darwin, who has a female rat called Donut, and Olive, who identifies as queer and loves organising, to Mamá Lupe’s hotel in Mexico for the summer.

    Mamá Lupe has warned them to stay out of her office but these are three kids spending their summer cleaning rooms in a hotel; naturally the allure of the forbidden is too interesting to ignore. Soon they learn that this isn’t an ordinary hotel and Mamá Lupe is not your typical granny.

    There are hidden worlds to explore and between them, these adopted siblings meet wizards, space pirates and cuddlemuffins. I

    Sunny the Cuddlemuffin! Along the way Charlotte learns about belonging and family, and what home really means.

    I loved how Claudia Aguirre brought Terry Blas’ story to life, with plenty of detail and vibrant colours. The Land of the Dead was always going to be my favourite portal destination but I enjoyed them all. I did Google some Spanish to figure out some small sections of dialogue but I would have still known what was happening if I hadn’t.

    I could easily keep rereading this story and I would happily visit other portals with these kids if there was a sequel. Thank you so much to NetGalley and KaBOOM!, an imprint of BOOM! Studios, for granting my wish to read this graphic novel.

    Hotel Dare, written by Terry Blas, and illustrated by Claudia Aguirre, is the story of Olive and her adopted siblings Darwin and Charlotte who find themselves being thrust into worlds unlike their own while exploring their grandma's hotel!

    What I liked most about this was the fact that it talks about the importance of family; biological and chosen! The artwork was stunning, and I had an incredible time exploring the different worlds that popped up! I don't read nearly enough graphic novels/comics for my liking, but this one was a win for me, and I couldn't recommend it enough!

    The expected publication for Hotel Dare is the 11th of June, 2019, so if this sounds like something you'd enjoy, you wont have to wait long before getting your hands on a copy!

    This world-hopping adventure story for kids teaches an awesome lesson about the importance of family. Family isn't about being biologically related....it's about who you trust and who makes you feel loved and valued. Three teens go to visit their Grandma Lupe in her run-down, mysterious, old hotel. They discover a secret that sends them into several different magical fantasy worlds. Space pirates. Wizards. Aliens. This book has a little bit of everything!

    I loved this story! The teens

    I loved this story! The teens are learning how to become a newly blended family and come together to solve the mysterious predicament they find themselves in. Their Grandma Lupe is quirky and feisty, yet lovable.

    The artwork is fantastic! The story is interesting and exciting, while making important points about family relationships.

    Loved it! I will definitely be looking for more by this author and illustrator! Terry Blas has written stories for several familiar animated characters including Steven Universe and The Amazing World of Gumball. Claudia Aguirre's art appears in multiple graphic novels/comics including Open Earth and Kim & Kim #1.

    This was really lovely! The art was fun, the characters were likable, and I thought the world was remarkably well-developed for such a short story. I especially loved how effortlessly diverse the cast was, with the Dares being Latinx, the oldest sibling being a queer girl, and the awesome themes revolving around adoption and recognizing that family is what you make of it. Oh, and Sunny? I need a Sunny in my life. ♥

    A great fantastical story about a blended family who discover a hotel that transports them to different worlds. I really enjoyed the message of your family is who you choose it to be. The different mystical and sci-fi worlds were fun. The art was solid as well.

  • Francina Simone

    Loved the art, the story was fulfilling and fleshed out. A great fantasy! The illustrations conveyed just as much story as the writing (which can be something hard to come by sometimes)

    There might be a sequel?!

  • Emily (Obsessed Reader)

    We stan diverse characters and a diverse family!

    This was SUCH a great adventure from beginning to end that I could not put down.

    Some things were confusing at first, but it all wrapped up really nicely.

    I really want more of this series very soon! Also the artwork is definitely worth mentioning - it was absolutely electric, so colorful, and totally eye catching. Loved all of it!

    2,5/5. Hotel Dare is a well illustrated comic book that mixed various elements trying to build an epic storyline. Unfortunately, for me, that didn’t work. The story is okay, not the most original, adapting/playing with elements seen many time (the old house/hotel, the magical doors, other world/plan of existence, etc..) and some part of it remind me a Lock and Key actually but that was the characters that failed this one. I didn’t like them, didn’t feel anything for them, and finally didn’t care

I’ve no doubt that some reader will enjoy this one (it already have some love on Goodreads) but I’m not one of them, having read too many similar thing maybe... Not bad, but not for me!

    Hotel Dare was truly BEAUTIFUL--and I mean that in every aspect. The illustrations are vivid and so colorful, the story is incredibly unique and fun, and the characters are diverse and original. Set in a hotel whose rooms transport entrants to fantastical worlds, the Dare siblings learn the importance of family--even adoptive family--as well as friendship and love.

    I am sorry to admit I didn't like this graphic novel very much: I was not into the story at all and, to be honest, I found it rather boring. I appreciate the desire to tell a story about love in an adoptive family in which the siblings have different ethnic backgrounds, but that wasn't enough to keep we wanting to go on. The character design was actually really good, and it was probably my favourite thing in the volume. As for the art, it was appealing for the eye, but unfortunately not that original (I couldn't find any unique features that distinguish it from other contemporary comics). Overall, it wasn't bad but also not quite good. I am sorry for the negative review, and I still appreciated the possibility to read this as an advanced copy.
