Cinebooks the UK translator of many great Franco-Belgian graphic novels has just released this beginning to another great series. Originally published in 1993 this four volumes the series kicks off with moody start.
Set in fantasy setting in medieval ages in Scottish like town, it is a coming of age story of a young girl. The girl "Siobhan" is the daughter of a deceased great warrior who lost a battle to Sorcerer who has then enslaved the land. When the story opens Siobhan's mother has agreed to marry her uncle Lord Blackmore for protection.
Lord Blackmore has his own dark secrets, plus men have come far looking far looking for the young girl. Many mysteries abound.
Written by the brilliant Belgian writer of Barracuda and Crusade Jean Dufax, I am eager to see this story unravel. The art is beautifully rendered by the Thorgal artist Grzegorz Rosinski. Rosinski a Polish artist resides in Switzerland.
The books has easily hooked me with it's combination of great art and great story telling. I eagerly await future volumes. Highly Recommended.
