Aquicorn Cove Reviews
I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.
Review will be posted in October. This was a fabulous book and I would recommend it. Combining magic with real topics (earth warming up/pollution + mourning and loss).
Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this graphic novel for review.
I all round enjoyed this. The artwork is beautiful, the story is lovely and the themes around nature and giving, taking and sharing are great. I do wish it was much longer. I don't think we got enough time with the characters for me to feel fully immersed and invested in the story.
I will definitely be looking out for more of Katie O'Neill's work. I highly recommend this one.
This is cute little story of a girl who lost her mother recently and trying to cope. There are some heart-touching moments but the book is light enough to get going. Illustrations are really beautiful and story flows naturally.
There is hint of lesbian romance between Lana's aunt and sea-goddess which I think was nice touch as well...

Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this graphic novel in exchange for an honest review.
This story was so cute. I was pleasantly surprised by the focus put on the environmental aspect, it was quite well done and it got the message across. The style of the author is really lovely and I enjoyed all the illustrations, especially the ones regarding the sea colony.
I'm really happy to have discovered this new author and I can't wait to read more of her books.
Thank you Netgalley and Oni Press for sending a review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This graphic novel was so adorable! I loved Katie O’Neill’s art and the story was lovely. The environmental message got across very well. Loved all the illustrations, and I can’t wait for this book to be released!
This is such a gorgeously done story that you can forget, for a moment, that it is a sad story, as well. A story of how we have over fished our seas. A story of how the coral is dying. A story of storms that get worse every year because of how we have messed up the environment.
And while it starts out as a typical middle-grade story, of a girl who has lost her mother, and who has come with her father to help rebuild a village that was hit by a huge story, as we get into the story, we realize ther ...more

The art is really beautiful it makes me want to climb into the story and live with it. I have such an immense love for this book wow. I have just one thing to say: READ THIS BOOK.
