'Muirwood: The Lost Abbey' is the first issue of a five issue Kindle serial. My review copy was only the first issue, so at 20+ pages, there isn't a lot to review without revealing spoilers.
Lady Marciana Soliven, aka Maia, is living in exile and locked inside a room when her father, the king, commands her to come see him. Apparently, he's learned something about his daughter and needs her to commit to a dangerous quest. The book then spends it's time with Maia debating the pros and cons of accepting the quest, but with 4 more issues due, we can already guess what her answer will be because 4 issues of Maia staring at the walls of her forced exile would be pretty unexciting.
The cover art is really good. The internal art is less so. Sometimes review copies have rough art or lower quality, so I'm hoping that's what happened here. There were definitely panels I liked better than others art-wise. The writing is not bad and the series is a tie-in with a series of novels.
I received a review copy of this single issue comic from Jet City Comics and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this first issue.
