    I'm really enjoying the 5 Worlds series. Having read the first two books in the Amulet series as well, I can honestly say that this is the stronger of the two when it comes to middle grade, graphic novel fantasy. The artwork is just as charming and immersive as in the first book. But the story is what really shines here. There are multiple complex threads woven throughout the plot, along with a creative cast of characters... including a formidable villain.

    The "5 Worlds" series is one of my all time favourite comic series - and I read a lot comics the past few years. Everything about this one fits perfectly together: emotional, original story with humor, heartbreak, action and great fantasy elements. Outstanding and georgous illustrations. Lovabale characters and some really wise dialogues about courage, family and finding strength within yourself. Can't wait for volume three! <3

    Great art about alien worlds and a heroine with great skills. Should be 5 in the series. Marketed as a juvenile graphic novel.

Though I think the issue is more with me than the book, since this is a fun little adventure story with nice art and an interesting setting full of neat little visual details of alien cultures and biomes; but it isn't quite what I'm looking for now, apparently. Though there are some details that annoy me. Like Jax's supposed death; it is obvious that he is one of the main companions of the destined one (it is a trope-filled story), and of course if you look too closely at the back cover, he is shown on the thumbnail image of the next volume in the series. But it feels like his "death" is glossed over too easily, like Oona and An Tzu end up back on the Flitori and no one really tears into the apparent fact that the captains did such a horrible job explaining things that they got their friend killed. Also, those missing children were brought up pretty heavily early in the story, and it seemed like they would be something the characters would investigate; instead the story moved on until they suddenly showed up as possessed but ethically-wrong-to-harm minions in a way that felt a bit random. Like, they were totally foreshadowed by mentions early in the book, but it didn't really feel expected. And I'm disappointed that I had properly pegged Jessa's role in the story: she's redeemed, but having her unite with her sister would resolve too much angst, so she has to nobly sacrifice herself instead. Finally, I wonder if Toki's government makes any sense at all given that Vector is elected prince; even when you elect monarchs, you usually do so from some subset of noble families, rather than just some orphan, whatever mystical talents they have.

    I love this continuation of the Sand Dancers. Oona is searching for answers. She thinks she knows what’s happening but her lost sister makes an appearance and she doesn’t know what to believe. Who is the Cobalt Prince and what are his intentions? Gorgeous artwork and an engaging storyline will appeal to those who like the tales of Hayao Miyazaki.

    A great sequel to a great book! The art of the first 5 Worlds comic was what caught my attention when I saw it on the library shelf, and the sequel is no different. Every page is a beautiful diorama of color and motion. It's just jam packed with personality! Five worlds; five artists, but it all feels like one unified style. Well done, guys! There are a lot of plot twists that really come as unexpected instead of the typical tropes. Definitely not just for kids, anyone can enjoy it! Though I def A great sequel to a great book!

Whether you're twelve or twenty, The Cobalt Prince is a fantastic read, I would definitely recommend it!

I also feel like the overarching plot has taken firmer roots now, but I'm feeling conflicted about what happened with the prince. Like they present it as "the prince was thinking hateful thoughts and so the mimic was able to possess him!" but I don't think we really got enough information on what exactly happened there and it sits weirdly with me.

Is it that the prince didn't know that the moons' orbits would expand and he really thought he was doing the right thing? Or did he intentionally give people limited information while knowing the truth? With the mimic prince being the antagonist of this volume and the titular character, I really was hoping we would learn a little bit more about what had happened. Having said that, I did enjoy reading this a lot and I'm very excited for the next book in the series! As a final note: I would be very interested to hear a person of color weigh in on some of the stuff that was revealed in this book.

    Reminds me of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Geared towards kids but the storyline is much more advanced.

    Everything makes a little more sense in Volume 2 of this saga. Which makes it more enjoyable. It stays pretty light in the dialogue but the plot gets more original and more distant more its obvious influences such as Bone and Amulet. IT's getting pretty good.

    The Cobalt Prince is a perfect addition to the 5 Worlds series. Equal parts Miyazaki and Moebius, it deals with the absurdity of racism and the dangers of blindly accepting other people's truths as your own. Can't wait for Book 3.

    I love this series so much! This is the best young readers fantasy graphic novel series that I have read so far. It's beautifully drawn, it has engaging characters, and the world building is unique and interesting. Overall, this is great story that can be enjoyed by readers of all ages and I think will especially appeal to fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender. I'm impatiently waiting for the next in the series!

GRAPHIC NOVEL Random House, 2017. $17.99. Language: G ( 0 swears) ; Mature Content:G; Violence: G. There are five worlds, with five different races, each world suited to each race. Their habitats are breaking down and some believe that is due to the fact that each planet has not been able to light its ancient beacon. The mother world, the largest, house's a magical group of sand dancers, they believe they have a special person who can light all the beacons, but the other worlds don't buy it and even want to battle for resources. Oona is a young sand dancer who was miraculously and expectantly to light the first beacon. Together with two friends, An, a young boy who doesn't have long to live and Jax, a star athlete robot they are on their way to try to light another beacon. However, much is against them, including the dreaded Mimic. Additionally Oona will get the chance to meet up again with her sister. Just like the first book, this is an incredibly well written book with multi-faceted plot. Its quite complex, and I probably should have re-read of the first book to really grasp everything that happened in this second book. Reading this graphic novel is truly like watching a great anime movie with fantastic illustrations, well crafted characters, and top notch world building. Upper elementary students at my school have loved the first book and it has been heavily circulated. I have been getting requests for this second book all year long. I am eager to add it to the collection. Great for middle school as well! EL, MS –ESSENTIAL Reviewer: Stephanie Elementary School Librarian & Author. https://kissthebook.blogspot.com/2018...

Oona also learns that she is adopted and from the planet Atbal-Balak. She travels there in order to stop the reforming of the Queen’s arm and the release of the Mimic’s heart. They defeat the prince but her sister Jessa sacrifices herself in the process. An Tzu has a mysterious disappearing illness and he has to be saved by a plant figure. He dreams and comes to realize he’s been racist against blue-skinned people who were only fighting the darkness just like him. Her other friend Jax seemingly dies but is later found to be alive and leaves the cliffhanger for the next book of how he managed his survival.

    I'm reviewing the first two volumes of 5 Worlds as a unitary work. The vaguely Asian-anime styling, with elemental powers, falls into the growing genre built on Avatar: The Last Airbender. There's plenty of adventure, some strong but not very deep characters (with more than a hat tip to diversity), and plenty of melodrama. How could they! How could you! It's all good enough, and probably great for fans of the genre. But even with allowances for the YA audience, nothing here quite sang out.

It's all good enough, and probably great for fans of the genre. But even with allowances for the YA audience, nothing here quite sang out. The character designs and background worldbuilding are finely done, but page composition became so crowded that those details are lost in the clutter. So the eye gets lost and action doesn't cleanly flow panel to panel, which gets worse when the images are drowned out by needlessly explanatory word balloons. Somehow the team of four (!) illustrators were unable to communicate key concepts visually. The artistic team sometimes used color to do that, but what the book really needed was space. And maybe, an inker who could do something with line and direction. Good enough for a light adventure yarn, if you don't mind too much explanation, but I have no lasting impressions or desire to read the remaining books in the series. Recommended with reservations.

    Picking right up where The Sand Warrior left off, this graphic novel takes readers to Toki, the blue planet. There, Oona Lee is reunited with her beloved older sister, Jessa, who left her years ago. But as it turns out, Jessa has been betrayed by the Cobalt Prince, and things are not what they might seem. In fact, much of what the sisters held to be true about their own origins turns out to be false.

With An Tzu continuing to fade away and Jax Amboy absent from the action, Oona will need to find some new allies to help her fight against the ancient forces that threaten life as she knows it. I loved the images, the fact that the land was healed with a tune played on a flute, and the sacrifice Jessa makes when it looks as though all is lost. I'm sure I won't be the only one eager to read The Red Maze, the next installment in this imaginative science fiction series built on some fascinating worlds.

    I preferred the series opener, but this was a good addition. Doesn't have quite the same emotional punch as the first (at least in my opinion). Something fairly tragic happens early in, but the characters seem to cope with it all right, whereas a feel a little bit of pathos might have been warranted.

    An improvement over the first volume. I still don't like the color palette, and the action panels are occasionally hard to follow. But the story continues to build and engross, creating a surprisingly full world.
