Synopsis: When Aeslin Finn was a little girl, her parents read to her from a magical book called The Avalon Chronicles. But that was a long time ago. Now a teenager, Aeslin is about to discover just how magical she and that book really are. Transported to the world of Avalon, she discovers a kingdom in need of a Dragon Knight – and the last dragon, Blue Moon, is waiting for her.
Review: I requested this graphic novel from NetGalley  because when I read the blurb it sounded like a good little story. The story is good and has a lot of potential to become really interesting, although the whole dragon rider thing feels a lot like Eragon.
The characters are not developed enough for you to really form any attachments, but that’s pretty understandable. You can already see a great heroin brewing she’s fiery and pretty fun to read. The other characters to me still seem pretty two dimensional but I’m hoping that with time they’ll grow to be awesome, or evil either’s fine really.
Its a fun graphic novel but I wouldn’t describe it as anything amazing, it does have potential though so I’m definitely going to keep an eye out for the next one. 
Recommend: Yeah sure its not a bad graphic novel I’d give it a look see if you have the time.
