Emily and Navin have rescued their mother but she is dying from deadly poison. Now Emily and Nevin have to travel with the strange crew they found in the house to the city of Kanalis. There they will find more intriguing characters, hopefully find an answer to their mother’s illness, and also find that more is afoot than just their small problems.
This was a wonderful graphic novel. The illustrations are absolutely breathtaking and the storyline grows a lot in this book. You find that Emily and her family are part of a much larger story and have important roles that may determine the fate of this world.
