The Cobalt Prince continues the tale started in Sand Warrior and chronicles the further adventures of Oona and her friends in mission to defeat Mimic and save the 5 Worlds from certain destruction. Whoo, that was a sentence.

Things get even more complicated in this volume when Oona discovers that the sister she idolizes is now a revered member of the enemy’s army. But things process at a breakneck speed when Oona meets the captains of the ship she’s on to a certain world. The Mimic speaks through his vessel, chaos ensues and a pyrrhic victory is achieved.

The art is sublime as I expected it to be. The Cobalt Prince is a rollicking ride for those who like high fantasy. I think teachers and parents will find this series a wonderful introduction to fantasy for reluctant readers. Definitely recommended.
