    Thank you to NetGalley for a free review copy of this book!

    This book has been my favorite book that I've read from NetGalley so far. I wish there was a way for me to properly convey how much I loved this book but I feel like words will fail me.

    This book has been my favorite book that I've read from NetGalley so far. I wish there was a way for me to properly convey how much I loved this book but I feel like words will fail me.

    This book is about Artemisia who is the illegitimate daughter of a Naval captain and a mother she never met. She is living with a step mother that she hates and her step sister whom she loves. While looking a mirror one fine day she gets kidnapped into another world and the Faerie Queen takes her place in our world. She meets a strange creature named Crispin, who becomes her guide through the Faerie world. Along the way she is forced to do things that she is not comfortable and she gradually changes into something unrecognizable. Can she make her way back home or will she be stuck in Faerie land forever?

    This book combines Jane Austin, Alice in Wonderland, and a badass MC. I love Art because she doesn't always make the best decisions or ask the right questions. She is a fantastically wrong a few times throughout the book but I love the fact that she can be murdering Unseelie left and right but then still feel guilt when she finds out they weren't that bad. She's a complex character and I love her.

    Also I loved the artwork in this book! The color palette was really nice and it really helped the story along.

    Overall, I absolutely loved this book. I cannot recommend it enough. Especially if you are fans of Alice in Wonderland or Tithe by Holly Black.

    This was a really good graphic novel!

    Sparrowhawk was a really fun and enjoyable read. The artstyle is really good especially the backgrounds! The story was really interesting despite it being too fast paced at times but the ending was right up my alley! The story is a mix of Alice in wonderland and faeries. The chapter covers by other artists were amazing too.

    I loved most characters but sometimes they felt like they had no character depth much because it was really fast p

    I loved most characters but sometimes they felt like they had no character depth much because it was really fast paced.

    Overall, I would recommend this to anyone who wants a fast read with beautiful artstyle and an ending with a twist!

    Thank you Netgalley for providing me with the digital copy for an honest review.

    I had previously read the Ladycastle graphic novel by this author and found it to be cute but pretty lacking in both character development and subtlety, but I think this title shows a lot of growth in her as an author. I think it helped that this was five issues instead of just 4 [I always find 4 issue graphic novels to be so rushed], but the storyline about trying to find your place in the world and whether the ends truly justify the means was g

    I had previously read the Ladycastle graphic novel by this author and found it to be cute but pretty lacking in both character development and subtlety, but I think this title shows a lot of growth in her as an author. I think it helped that this was five issues instead of just 4 [I always find 4 issue graphic novels to be so rushed], but the storyline about trying to find your place in the world and whether the ends truly justify the means was great and although it was very dark I loved it [especially the end]. The art is great as well and I really love all the character designs of the different faeries and how they change depending on their actions. Definitely worth a read for people who like faerie stories.

    Artemisia is a mixed race girl living in Victorian England with her wicked step-mother and family. She gets pulled into a very dark version of faerie where she must kill to gain enough power to return home. I dug this macabre version of faerie. I find the best version of faerie are the ones where there's a bunch of ulterior motives and sly trickiness. There's also a lot about learning to accept one's self, faults and all.

    Check out my full video review:

    Sparrowhawk is a graphic novel which take the main character Artemisia into Faire, there she must kill to be able to go back home.

    I really enjoyed this, the art beautiful and the story intriguing! I really liked the questions it rose about how you do evil for something good, and how one can change doing these actions. The end left me gasping, and I was very surprised how the overall dark the whole story was. It was trickery and clever, so of course I lik

    . The cover art intrigued me and the story sucked me into a world where Artemesia (Art), looked down on by her family due to her mixed race and background, finds herself in the faerie world with no memory of the thing she loved most, her sister.

    This is a pretty short graphic novel. The story is pretty twisted in the end. For me it is almost like a combination of Alice through the looking glass and stories about Faeries.

    This is a pretty short graphic novel. The story is pretty twisted in the end. For me it is almost like a combination of Alice through the looking glass and stories about Faeries. The art is good, but not entirely to my tastes, but what I'm conducting points for is that the layout/images/text were sometimes in a confusing order. The writing, here and there is was very whimsical and beautiful (as far that is possible for a graphic novel, already having limited text), here and there it was just weird and confusing.

    Because of those pointers, maybe being confusing, wanting some more explanation and text and such I can't give it more then 3 stars. I like the story though, just wished there would've been more.

    Would recommend though since even if you read it and it isn't for you anyways, you'll barely wasted any time really.

    -->THE ART: Sadly, the art fluctuate between interesting to lacking in different vignettes.

    The covers and alternates covers from 2 on are not the same as the drawings inside.

    That isn’t my definition of dark... and when a comic book want to be dark, it shouldn’t present illustrations are colorful like they came from a children TV shows. Big failed in every aspects. I don’t get all the positive review I read, maybe it’s just me...
