Storm Born: Graphic Novels by Richelle Mead, Grant Alter and Dave Hamann

Eugenie Markham never asked for any of this. Until now, she’s been content with her job as a freelance shaman, battling and banishing Otherworldly creatures.

In volume one, as Eugenie is going about her normal business of banishing the Otherworldly creatures from disrupting people’s lives, she comes to discover several of them mentioning her by her real name. Not only that but they seem to be getting a little frisky. She seeks out the opinion of her stepfather who calms her down. He says that sometimes it’s a normal occurrence in the business. Then she tells him that she has been approached by a gentleman to travel into the underworld to rescue his sister who was kidnapped a year ago.  Her stepfather discourages her from crossing over because it’s dangerous on the other side and who knows what could happen to her there.

The integration of Richelle Mead’s Storm Born series into a graphic novel was really well done. It was the first time I wanted to read one volume after the other, just devouring the story and really enjoying the artwork as well. There is enough of the story line to really keep the reader engaged and anticipating what will happen next.

I give this series 5 stars, highly recommended!
