My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
When a haint comes to Emmy asking for help, she's surprised to learn that one of her oldest friends may be turning against her. While Emmy has been focused on dealing with threats from the outside world, perhaps a much bigger problem has been brewing at home. Collects issues #21-#24 of the award-winning series!
Jumping from the story in volume 2, to this one volume 6, felt like a bit of a mistake. However, I really wanted to read this volume since this is a series that I quite like.
It took a while for me to get into the story, to be honest, mostly because I haven't read a Harrow County volume in a while and obviously reading this volume much has happened since I read Harrow County, Vol. 2: Twice Told.
However, Hedge Magi is a pretty good volume, can be hard to read this graphic novel without any previous knowledge about the series. But, you get the gist of the story pretty fast. I found myself quite caught up in the story towards the end, and just as it was truly getting good, did it all end! Sigh!
The art is still my big problem, I'm just not that fond of the drawings and the how the characters look. But, in a way, it starts to grow on me, and I'm not totally put off. It's just that I feel every time I start to read a Harrow County volume that it takes a while for me to enjoy the story because of the art. Thankfully the stories are good!
