    If I was only reviewing the story component of this book I'd be like, "Well, it's good but..." but this book is not just about the story. In fact, I'd say that it's not even mostly about the story. It's mostly about the art, and the art is amazing. This is self-contained but also po...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2017/11/20/... I?d never read a ?painted novel? before, but I think I like it?especially if it means getting to enjoy my stories with such jaw-droppingly stunning artwork. It certainly doesn?t get better than Abov...

    The cover screams "Dinotopia for a new generation." The interior illustrations echo James Gurney's fabulist dreams, minus dinosaurs, plus polar bears. The writing...the writing isn't great. Manchess is a thrilling artist and his illustrations make the book 100% worth picking up, if onl...

    A beautiful book (a graphic novel) and a good story. Would really appeal to any fans of Philip Reeve or Philip Pullman. Very original, deserves to be a best seller ...

    Received in exchange for a honest review. Gregory Manchess as an artist is amazing. The illustrations are so detailed and just gorgeous. The artwork alone tells a story and sometimes that is a wonderful thing. It is here because it helps to enhance the tale that is being written abo...

    I'd really been looking forward to this book since I first saw some of the first few paintings, I believe when it popped up on Tor.com. Several months later, one of my friends let me borrow her copy and I'm away on the adventure! First off, the art in this book is beautiful, absolutely...

    A tale of a young man's quest for his archeologist father in another, polar world. The clues that this is post-apocalyptic are light, because that it is our world is not that important. What is important that when the father's expedition to find a city is lost, and his message retur...

    5/5 for the stellar, vibrant art--especially because it's paint on canvas. (Static computer-generated art feels invariably lifeless and boring.) The pulpy story (inclusive of imagery) breezes by beautifully, but misses any impactive emotional beats. You might say that's not the poi...
