Self Purchase, Kindle Edition

It’s been a while since I’ve read a graphic novel on my kindle- as opposed to reading on my computer via comixology. I forgot how nice and clean the images are on a smaller screen.

I love the coloring and the art. Love talking cats. I can’t ever get enough of talking cats.This series is really how kids/teen books should be done. I love the story line. I love the characters. I love the art.  I wished the scenes without Cleopatra had been cut back on. She is what really makes this series and I felt like there were too many scenes that missed her. In any case, this series is fantastic. This volume leaves off on a bit of a cliff hanger so it’s going to suck a little waiting for the next volume to come out.


Description (Amazon): Cleopatra's space adventure in the REALLY far future continues!


A mysterious thief has stolen the ancient sword Cleo recovered in Book One: Target Practice, and she's determined to get it back. But her teachers at Yasiro Academy forbid her from risking her life, so she's stuck at school, trying to adjust to her newfound popularity and responsibility. And when she learns more about the prophecy that names her the savior of the galaxy, she must go on a dangerous journey to find the time tablets that could decide her fate... before they fall into the wrong hands!
