Review: The Shadow Glass TPB
A young student to England’s greatest occultist learns her real father is in league with the devil. When Rose finds out that the man who raised her isn’t her father, she ignores his warnings about the terrible secrets of her own past and seeks answers from childhood teacher Dr. John Dee, the queen’s occult adviser.
Not all is at it seems in The Shadow Glass written by Aly Fell who also provides the art. While the twists are almost continuous throughout the book, the complexity of each one varies. Despite that increasing complexity, the book is an engaging and entertaining read. The Shadow Glass follows the journey of the mysterious obsidian mirror, with strange properties. This a must have for fans of historical fiction and action adventure.
The art is polished, and (relatively) historically accurate. Allowing for a solid flow from panel to panel as the story unfolds. The action scenes are superb, even if they are short.
