Huh... another one with no real review...
I picked this one up because I was impressed with So-Young Lee's other series "Model"- both the art and the story.

However, I'm a little ambivalent about this story so far: young heroine in a fantasy kingdom can talk to animals, and thus, has a special destiny. However, no one seems very keen to explain it to her, or the audience. (Which is annoying.) Also the un-named antagonists remain such - anonymous and ... unmotivated.
... oh and something about dragons.

(seriously, I know this review is confusing - but it's like the author got lost in drawing pretty boys and forgot to clarify the plot.)

So if you can't deal with slow beginnings, and confusing (lack of) storylines... skip it. The art is pretty, and I love me some dragons & hot mysterious wizard guys... but... yeah. I like a clear plot to hang it on.

I read it and found it mildly disturbing: not my taste. Enjoy!
