This is where it all kicks off and epic fantasy overtakes the cute and humorous. Princesses, dragons, ancient prophecies, the whole nine yards. It is a bit of a jarring transition but the characters we love are still there, if a little shaken.
The book has become slightly wordier but we have our first double page spread, some wonderful nocturnal vistas and some highly unusual panel work. There are lots of nice artistic touches here.
A Thumbs Up!
