Graphic novel for young adventure lovers
In “Five Worlds: The Sand Warrior,” by Mark Siegel, Alexis Siegel, Xanthe Bouma, Matt Rockefeller and Boya Sun, Oona Lee is a young girl living in Chrysalis, the capital city of the Five Worlds.
She is also one of the clumsiest students at Sand Dancer Academy, a school where students come to learn how to harness their sand powers.
An Tzu is a boy from the poorest slums in the 5 worlds. With a smart brain, and a knack of getting out of situations, An Tzu will help the team in many of their struggles.
Jax Amboy is admired by the whole galaxy as one of the best star ball players. But what’s his real life outside of fame when he has no real friends, or real anything?
When a force of evil strikes Chrysalis, the three are brought together to stop evil forces before time runs out.
Or the world itself.
With limited days to light the beacon before evil takes over forever, Oona, An and Jax, along with some help from An’s plant friend, will hopefully prevent evil from taking over Five Worlds.
Can these three unlikely heroes’ come together and put aside their differences to save the world, as they know it? Or will the world fall into the hands of evil?
This book was good but when I volunteered to review it, I thought I was going to have a summer-long reading project. It turns out I finished this book in less then a week. Why? Well, I’m not a fast reader; the book is a graphic novel! I love graphic novels but I just didn’t know it was going to be one.
Because of this on a scale of stars one to five I would give it a three, not because it was bad but just because I felt that it was just a little easier to read and, although it was good, it was just a too easy for someone my age.
I would say the age group for this book is 8-10.
