    A solid, self contained fantasy story about changelings, fairies, an underground kingdom and an evil sorceress. The strength in this is the integration of ideas and concepts found in LGBTQ stories like coming out and chosen families. Hoping that Aldridge moves to more overt queer repre...

    This was a super cute, fast-paced, well illustrated graphic. I loved the art & the idea! I did feel the world could have been developed more, but that would have required the graphic to be a series, so I grasp why it wasn?t. However, I definitely felt i wanted more - which can on...

    I liked this book, BUT I felt like there was too much packed into one story. I'm not sure if Aldridge plans on more, but this book itself had too many plots going to feasible wrap up in one book. I loved the idea of another underground world where sometimes fae children are swapped wit...

    What would it be like to know you don't belong?  I mean, truly don't belong.  To know that you are a human amongst fay, or fay amongst humans?  To know that your family is not the one decided by birth, but rather by the whims of others? Edmund knows that he doesn't belong with hi...

    This book was given to me by HarperCollins in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I feel that I might be a bit biased considering I am a big fan of Ethan's art work. I actually own a few prints by him and hope to continue to grow my collection. This ...

    I loved this! I really don?t read a ton of graphic novels but I saw the cover, liked the art style and was intrigued. This is true for the entire novel, great art that sucks you in. The concept was neat and I really liked the entire cast of characters. A fun adventure and escape. I r...

    3.5 stars. Solid graphic novel with good art (!!) and all about found families and fey and siblings and I guess overthrowing corrupt and false systems of government. Love the focus on family! ...

    When I get a graphic novel, the thing I look at first is the art. The art is what drew me to this. It is very well done with some interesting and cool character designs. Unfortunately, the art could not hide the shortcomings of the story. The first 3rd of the story is the best, with th...

    This was a quick read that really sucked me in. I can't wait to share it with my kids, and I'll definitely be checking out the sequel. I am always here for changelings and golems and dragons and whatnot. ...

    The illustrations are beautiful!! A graphic novel is really the best way to display all of the amazing talent Ethan has. The story itself is on the simpler side - a really good fit for young readers. For more adult readers, it does feel like it has the potential for more depth. Would d...

    Firstly, I loved the artwork in this graphic novel. Absolutely stunning! You have to see for yourself the amazing creativity of this author to create this story and then draw all the artwork to go along with the vision. I can't wait to see the full color edition! This story is about ...

    As one who doesn?t read graphic novels very frequently, I rather enjoyed Estranged by Ethan Aldrige. Both the detailed artwork and the wonderful dialogue made this novel very easy to read alongside young children. Aldridge takes common folk lore and brings it into a modern world. ...

    Cute solid middle grade fantasy. Maybe a little too much shoved in, but I think the fast pace will appeal to a lot of kids. (Also, I love the pigeons being horrid gossips throwaway line...) ...

    "THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A ROMANCE AND A TRAGEDY IS HOW IT ENDS, DON'T YOU THINK?" This was a buddy read. Thanks, Alex!! Estranged was more of a 4.5 for me. The world building was spot on. A lot of creativity went into this graphic novel, not only with the artwork but with the s...

    I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. This is a story about 2 boys. 1 is Fae and the other is a human. The sorceress Hawthorne takes his parents away and takes over the World Below, so the Childe must find the changeling who replaced him in the human world. When the Childe finds E...

    My rating is based off of the advance read copy that I won from Goodreads. This graphic novel is a lot of fun. It is well drawn and interesting. I was a little disappointed by the ARC because it wasn't in color which made reading it feel kind of like I was reading a rough draft. The re...
