Gr 8 Up–Once every 10 years, a prophecy is made true: a new witch awakens to her power, seeking to use it to take over the world. A tournament is held to decide on four heroes—a Warrior, a Rogue, a Mage, and a Saint—who will join together to stop her reign of terror. Agni has been working hard to become the best Alchemist she can, hoping to be accepted as the Mage hero of the heroic party. Though unconventional in appearance with her skeletal arms, her skill is undisputed. Leaving her tree home for the first time in 10 years, Agni is able to make friends with Grom, an aspiring Rogue, as they train under hopeful Warrior Reksha. However, forces conspire against them…will they even make it to the tournament? Bringing together the beginning issues of the hit webcomic, author and illustrator Caballes (AKA WhatAHero on Tapas) shows off his fun, animelike art style. Tweens will relate to this cast of wonderful yet flawed characters. An epic fantasy tale about friendship and overcoming your own limits. It will not only fly off shelves, but also help introduce readers to the ever-expanding world of webcomics.
VERDICT Delightfully quirky, this webcomic makes a strong impression in print.
