When Emily awoke on the morning of her thirteenth birthday, she had no way to predict the insanity that would follow. What was supposed to be a mellow day spent celebrating with her mom and watching the solar eclipse has turned into something else entirely. Now Emily is a stranger in an even stranger land, in hot pursuit of the bizarre beast who stole the powerful heirloom watch her mysterious Aunt LaRue sent. Flying ships, talking creatures, and deadly traps are all just the start of an adventure that started in her own bedroom and now finds her standing on the precipice of her own fate, at the ancestral home of her family. Emily loves when things get weird, but is she ready for what waits for her within the walls of Blackrock?

    The story is fun, but definitely one that is targeted toward a very specific demographic. If you have a little sister and want to introduce her to something other than superhero comics, then this might be a great book for you to pick up. The characters are interesting, have a lot of personality and the issue is overall relatively well executed. Read Full Review

    Theres not a single objectionable element to the book, but theres also not a single one to compel me to read further. Emily seems a sweet character and her adventures move along cleanly and quickly. Still, the language is perhaps a bit too playful for me (the word anyhoodle pops up and my attention kind of blinkers), but again, this isnt a book written for me. Read Full Review
