     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.


This is kind of a difficult review to write. 

The illustrations were so beautiful, but I had a hard time reading it. The font is really small, and there was no way to make it larger or to at least zoom in on the page so I could read it better. 

A lot of the story was pretty generic, and the way the story flowed from panel to panel felt a little choppy. It could be that I read it on my tablet that I had a really hard time getting into the story.

If I read the rest, I'd rather start over reading it in a physical book, and go from there.

Sorry for such a short review, but I just don't have that much to say about it.
