Gr 3-6–Adventure and mystery await the questing team of human Nathan, fae Haven, crow Sina, and wolf Bardou in this sequel to Fantastic Tales of Nothing. The land of Nothing is full of strife now that the Court and the Empire are at war. Even among the courtesan volken, or magical shape-shifters, there are divisions. As visions reveal fragments of the past to Nathan, the team travels to the Edge in order to learn how to stop villain Stryx’s possession of Haven and takeover of the continent. Unraveling the mysterious disappearance of ancient fae leader Lerina may lead to defeating Stryx for good if time does not run out first. Readers who enjoy humor, magic, and epic questing will find much to enjoy in this artfully illustrated middle grade graphic novel. Characters are complex and diverse, especially amongst the main character team, with a mixture of species and skin tones; Haven uses they/them pronouns. However, certain worldbuilding aspects will make more sense if readers are familiar with the events of the first book.
VERDICT Purchase for libraries where fantasy graphic novels are in demand.
