After a family tragedy, Emily, Navin and their mother move to an ancestral home to start a new life. On the family’s very first night in the mysterious house, Em and Navin’s mom is kidnapped by a tentacled creature. Now it’s up to Em and Navin to figure out how to set things right and save their mother’s life!

I absolutely love this graphic novel series! The art is amazing, and the story is also fantastic! The baseline of the story was fairly familiar; our adventurer gets led into an unknown world where she has to basically save the world. A magic item is handed down to her from her grandfather and now she is not only fighting against outer forces but also internal forces. However, it had a lot of twists and turns that I was not expecting. It’s a great adventure story. All of the characters were enjoyable. The creatures and robots were all very creative.

Overall, I really enjoyed the story and the art especially. This is meant to be a middle-grade graphic novel series but I would be weary for any younger eyes, there is a pretty tragic death within the first few pages.
