Hardcover, 144 pages
Published October 1st 2008 by GRAPHIX
Rue Silver’s mother has disappeared . . . and her father has been arrested, suspected of killing her. But it’s not as straightforward as that. Because Rue is a faerie, like her mother was. And her father didn’t kill her mother — instead, he broke a promise to Rue’s faerie king grandfather, which caused Rue’s mother to be flung back to the faerie world. Now Rue must go to save her — and must also defeat a dark faerie that threatens our very mortal world. – Goodreads
My Opinion: The Art was interesting and the story as well. I loved the contrast created by the black and white and the drawings were amazingly well done. This was my first goth style art graphic novel and it was impressive.
The story and plot was okay. I liked the main character Rue. She seemed like someone that was confused and figures thing out. I liked the mystery of what she was and that she was seeing things. It was an easy read and kept me interested.
Overall: 3.5 out of 5
