    Book 1 of 5 is an enticing introduction and makes me want to know just as much about Artemesia and the life she has lived as I want to know about the adventures she has been pulled into. Looking forward to the rest of the series. Read Full Review

    Sparrowhawk really is off to a great start as it may remind of stories like The Wizard of Oz or I Hate Fairyland but with its own fun twist to it. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed the moments in Faerie and really liked Artemisia as a character, but this issue felt slow in the beginning, only racking up the speed in the last few pages, I'm hoping the remaining four issues feel like the final pages. The parts on earth feel slow, but with Unseelie Queen acting as Artemisia this could add some fun, and drama to these scenes making me more excited for the next few issues. Plus the monster designs are so superb I can't wait for more to be introduced. Read Full Review
