Staff Reviews


Edmund lives a normal life, but he is far from normal.
In fact, he isn't human - he is Fae, his parents, a King and Queen, stole a human child and left Edmund in the World Above. When that human boy appears on Edmund's street with news of betrayal and war, Edmund knows his life has changed forever, but he has to go down back to the World Below. He has to face Hawthorne, evil sorceress, and claim his place on the throne.
Fantastic art and strong story-telling make this an incredible graphic novel, sure to grab everyone who opens it. A stand-alone with hints at a sequel - hopefully! — Leah Moore

Prince and the Pauper meets Fairyland. Aldridge has created a full-color graphic novel that will please any fantasy lover. The themes of coming of age, magic, siblings, dragons, goblins and more are wrapped up in a delightful package. When danger invades Edmunds and Childe’s worlds they (along with Childe’s golem, Wick, and Edmund’s human sister) must stop it. In the process they just might finally find where they belong. — Jeanette

Description


Rising star author-illustrator Ethan M. Aldridge delivers a fantasy adventure with all the makings of a classic. Illustrated with over two-hundred pages of watercolor paintings, this epic graphic novel is perfect for fans of Amulet.

Edmund and the Childe were swapped at birth. Now Edmund lives in secret as a changeling in the World Above, his fae powers hidden from his unsuspecting parents and his older sister, Alexis. The Childe lives among the fae in the World Below, where being a human makes him a curiosity at the royal palace.

But when the cruel sorceress Hawthorne seizes the throne, the Childe and Edmund must unite on a dangerous quest to save both worlds—even if they’re not sure which world they belong to.

“A splendid tale of faery magic and adventurous siblings, all told in gorgeously rendered watercolor panels: this is exactly my kind of thing.” —Ben Hatke, author and illustrator of the New York Times bestselling Zita the Spacegirl trilogy

“It’s got dragons. It’s got drama. It’s got depth. And it’s got me impatiently awaiting Ethan M. Aldridge’s next eye-popping adventure.” —Tim Federle, award-winning author of Better Nate Than Ever and Five, Six, Seven, Nate!

“A compelling story about finding identity in a world where magic dangers lurk just around the corner. I loved Estranged!” —Molly Ostertag, author-illustrator of The Witch Boy

“As richly imagined in the full-color illustrations, the worldbuilding is both accessible and as familiar as those genre stalwarts… this should easily resonate with preteen and teen fans of both Holly Black and Neil Gaiman.”
— Kirkus Reviews

“Worthy of inclusion in any fantasy collection.”
— School Library Journal

“[F]un, daring, and dark...with themes and art that fall into the realm of Neil Gaiman, Michael Ende, and Jim Henson. Coupled with the beautifully toned watercolor art, the interdependence of and tension between the two protagonists makes this book stand out.”
