Graphic novel star Kazu Kibuishi creates a world of terrible, man-eating demons, a mechanical rabbit, a giant robot---and two ordinary children on a life-or-death mission.
After the tragic death of their father, Emily and Navin move with their mother to the home of her deceased great-grandfather, but the strange house proves to be dangerous. Before long, a sinister creature lures the kids' mom through a door in the basement. Em and Navin, desperate not to lose her, follow her into an underground world inhabited by demons, robots, and talking animals.
Eventually, they enlist the help of a small mechanical rabbit named Miskit. Together with Miskit, they face the most terrifying monster of all, and Em finally has the chance to save someone she loves.

I am not sure what I was expecting but this was really good. I never read a graphic novel and honestly when I picked it for my TBR list I didn’t know it was until someone mentioned it. It was a great read and I now want the rest of the series. It’s a little expensive but I plan to get them when I can.

The story is about Emily and Navin, the family moves to their great grandfathers house with their mom. The family experiences a great loss and needed a change and fresh start. The house hold secrets and something is going on. They didn’t expect what they got and OMG I love the world that it throws you into. I am eager to see what happens next. This is a great book one in what looks to be an amazing adventure.

Highly recommend, I am not sure what age group this would be for, maybe teen, but definitely YA and adult. This is really a fun read. I enjoyed it! 🙂


Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.

Have a great day and Happy Reading!

  1. Do you know, I’m STILL waiting for my copy at the library? It says it’s checked in, but…here I sit. Still. *sigh* My library has a wonderful large collection of graphic novels. I suggest a purchase for ones I really want or if I don’t want to be too greedy I do the interlibrary loan. I got the majority of the Sandman graphic novels from out of state libraries. How cool is that?!

  2. That’s the one reason why I don’t read more graphic novels, they are so expensive compared to normal books and how much reading time you get out of them. But they can be fun. From the cover I didn’t realize this was a graphic novel either. It sounds like it was a great read! I hope you can get the next book!
