Praise for ESTRANGED
“A splendid tale of faery magic and adventurous siblings, all told in gorgeously rendered watercolor panels: this is exactly my kind of thing.” —Ben Hatke, author and illustrator of the New York Times bestselling Zita the Spacegirl trilogy
“It’s got dragons. It’s got drama. It’s got depth. And it’s got me impatiently awaiting Ethan M. Aldridge’s next eye-popping adventure.” —Tim Federle, award-winning author of Better Nate Than Ever and Five, Six, Seven, Nate!
“A compelling story about finding identity in a world where magic dangers lurk just around the corner. I loved Estranged!” —Molly Ostertag, author-illustrator of The Witch Boy
“As richly imagined in the full-color illustrations, the worldbuilding is both accessible and as familiar as those genre stalwarts… this should easily resonate with preteen and teen fans of both Holly Black and Neil Gaiman.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Worthy of inclusion in any fantasy collection.” —School Library Journal
“[F]un, daring, and dark...with themes and art that fall into the realm of Neil Gaiman, Michael Ende, and Jim Henson. Coupled with the beautifully toned watercolor art, the interdependence of and tension between the two protagonists makes this book stand out.” —Publishers Weekly
“The deliciously captivating start to this adventure series will leave readers hungry for more.” —Booklist
But when the cruel sorceress Hawthorne takes the throne, the Childe and Edmund realize that the fate of both worlds may be in their hands—even if they’re not sure which world they belong to.
An Excellent graphic novel full of fantasy and adventure that can be enjoyed by all!
This is about a Human Childe being raised by royalty...He is never allowed to leave court, and has no actual name. When his Fae royal parents and court are attacked, he has no choice but to run away. He only person he can think of to seek help from and go into hiding is his changeling, Edmund.

This was such a fun graphic novel to read. The illustration is beautiful, and brings life to a fun fantasy.
