Series: The Nameless City #1
Published by Macmillan on April 5th 2016
Genres: young adult, Comics & Graphic Novels, Fantasy & Magic, middle grade
Every nation that invades the City gives it a new name. But before long, new invaders arrive and the City changes hands once again. The natives don't let themselves get caught up in the unending wars. To them, their home is the Nameless City, and those who try to name it are forever outsiders.
Kaidu is one such outsider. He's a Dao born and bred--a member of the latest occupying nation. Rat is a native of the Nameless City. At first, she hates Kai for everything he stands for, but his love of his new home may be the one thing that can bring these two unlikely friends together. Let's hope so, because the fate of the Nameless City rests in their hands.
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I’m glad to say the very few reads I’ve managed to pick up this year so far have been different styles, genres, and categories for me to keep things fresh and unique. A cool little flow that I seem to be keeping, despite a hectic ass schedule that keeps me with a very minimal reading time limit as of lately.
The Nameless City is a beautiful and well put-together MG graphic novel. Though I like the occasional graphic novel, I don’t read a lot of MG, but this is already my 2nd of 2016.. I’m quite shocked. Lol. But I thoroughly enjoyed. And the artwork was done fantastically. It’s always hard for me to review graphic novels because there’s usually not a lot for me to say. The simple summary can be found here and if I say much more than that, it goes into spoiler territory. What I particularly liked though is the diverse cast of characters, easily depicted within the art, and the Agrabah/Aladdin type feels I picked up on while reading.
This being the start to a series, I think I can safely say I’ll be following the story to come!
