    VerdictI am not sure what to say that I have not said already except that this book constantly gets better. We do not have anything higher than a five star review, so I can not give it one. Go get the TPB of the first six and then buy these new three and then, go to your local shop and put a hold on Books of Magic. Read Full Review

    Tom Fowlers art is magnificent. All of the characters pop on the page and there is an otherworldly style to it that gives the action an emotional impact. Read Full Review

    There has been more than a little doom and gloom pervading this series, and I was happy to take a break from that with this issue. Read Full Review

    I really liked Ellie's story even though it's one that could have been a side story or a tale from any Sandman book over the years. But that's also what made it engaging because it's felt like we've had few of those with the books that launched last year and a certain element of the excitement and dangers of magic hasn't come through quite as clearly.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Corey Patterson Jun 26, 2019

    A much-needed look into the character of Ellie, showing how her inner power is on par with the more famous Timothy Hunter. Read Full Review

    This issue offers current and possible new readers an excellent jumping-on point with a tale that stands alone, while still building out The Books of Magic's mythology. Read Full Review
