An American student somewhere in the Middle East is caught up in an alien attack by the "Kibrani." The only way to stop the attack seems to be the Jinn. A young boy the student runs into has a Jinn at his disposal, and he finds himself learning more about the world around him as his eyes are opened.
It's an okay book. The art is good, but I think it's geared toward a younger audience. I sometimes had a hard time reading the text from the Kibrani because the lettering was a bit too calligraphic in nature. It's Volume 1, so the story is left in a bit of a cliffhanger.
The main character and his fellow student are kind of jerks to the people they are going to meet and I found that a bit of an overdramatization. Why would they travel and be rude? I realize it's a set up for the character to have his eyes open, but it felt a bit narrow. Overall, I liked it, but I didn't love it.
I was given a review copy of this graphic novel by Diamond Book Distributors and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for letting me review this graphic novel.
