My Review:
This is the first graphic novel I have ever read and has made me want to read many, many more.
The story follows two soldier that are fighting on opposite sides of a war between a planet and its moon. The two soldiers fall in love, even though they are suppose to be enemies and they have a baby. The story is told partially through the point of view of the child. This series is their story on surviving in a world where they should not be together.

I really loved the way it was written. It is very fun, smart and interesting. I didn't lose interest the whole time I was reading it and when I finished was left craving more. I love the world it is very creative and so huge. There are so many different dynamics happening throughout the story. The characters are so different and lovable, the development of the characters  was wonderful. I just couldn’t get enough of them. I am so happy this was the first graphic novel I've  read, it has shined a light onto this new realm of literature for me to read.

My Rating:

  1. I haven't read any graphic novels either. Only manga's and those aren't the same thing. But I do want to read Kiersten White's graphic novel that came out earlier this year. I forgot the title, but I've heard it's good too. Saga though, sounds very interesting. It's also crazy that one of the POV's is from the baby. That's weird...was it weird for you to read from a baby?
