Spera is a long running online comic and this graphic novel collects one of the adventures. The adventure has a cast of adventurers on a quest, and each chapter is illustrated by a different artist. The result is a sort of mixed result.
Pira and Lono are exiled princesses. They are accompanied by Yonder, who is a fire spirit that alternates between a bearded man and a large, flaming dog, Chobo, a fierce cat, and Adel a fellow adventurer. When Yonder is put under the spell of a water spirit and shrunk, the adventurers have to find a wood spirit who will help them to restore their friend.
Along with the main adventure, there are a series of shorter adventures, all done by different artists as well. The art varies in quality, as does the lettering. Some chapters are easier to read than others. It was a coherent enough series and I liked the adventure gaming touches, like ccg cards at the end of each chapter outlining a monster or creature encountered in the chapter. Overall, it was just okay. I'm not sorry I read it, but I don't feel compelled to read more in this universe.
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.
