    Loved the art, the story was fulfilling and fleshed out. A great fantasy! The illustrations conveyed just as much story as the writing (which can be something hard to come by sometimes) There might be a sequel?! ...

    This was really fun! Equal parts Coco and Fablehaven , this is definitely a story about how family goes beyond biology and love can be complicated. I will say I was expecting a bit more spookiness with the hotel, but it?s a fun dimension hopping adventure that I think a lot of kid...

    Hotel Dare was truly BEAUTIFUL--and I mean that in every aspect. The illustrations are vivid and so colorful, the story is incredibly unique and fun, and the characters are diverse and original. Set in a hotel whose rooms transport entrants to fantastical worlds, the Dare siblings lear...

    This is what I never knew I wanted until I started reading It!! If you?re looking for a graphic novel that?s more deep and amazing that whatever you could imagine, this is it: the art it?s outstanding, colorful and super cute, but that?s not even the best part. Magic, travel...

    2,5/5. Hotel Dare is a well illustrated comic book that mixed various elements trying to build an epic storyline. Unfortunately, for me, that didn?t work. The story is okay, not the most original, adapting/playing with elements seen many time (the old house/hotel, the magical doors, ...

    This was really lovely! The art was fun, the characters were likable, and I thought the world was remarkably well-developed for such a short story. I especially loved how effortlessly diverse the cast was, with the Dares being Latinx, the oldest sibling being a queer girl, and the awes...

    I received a copy from BOOM! Studios through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. When Olive, Darwin, and Charlotte are dropped off at their Mam Lupe?s place, they are quickly put to work. Of course, cleaning the creepy old hotel their grandmother lives in is not how they...

    The following is my honest & voluntary review for Hotel Dare. Thank you Boom! Studios for an advance copy of this book. I truly believe family isn't always a blood relative and this book just illustrates that well. I spend more birthdays and holidays celebrating with close frie...

    This review and many others can be found on Musings of a (Book) Girl. Hotel Dare was definitely not like the typical graphic novel I read and I?m so glad I gave it a chance! Terry Blas and Claudia Aguirre gave us such a diverse cast of truly likable people. We saw characters that ...

    I thought I was gonna like this more, the story was promising but there is too much happening that I couldn't actually get into the story. While I was reading, it felt like some pages were missing, the panels changed really wierdly and that pulled me out of the story. The travelling th...

    A great fantastical story about a blended family who discover a hotel that transports them to different worlds. I really enjoyed the message of your family is who you choose it to be. The different mystical and sci-fi worlds were fun. The art was solid as well. Received a review cop...

    The artwork is incredible, and honestly if this storyline had just been fleshed out over the course of two or three volumes, it would probably be 4 or even 5 stars for me. I just feel like Blas tried to fit too much plot into one volume. ...

    This world-hopping adventure story for kids teaches an awesome lesson about the importance of family. Family isn't about being biologically related....it's about who you trust and who makes you feel loved and valued. Three teens go to visit their Grandma Lupe in her run-down, mysteriou...

    This graphic novel was so fun, it was full of space pirates, bearded wizards, space portals, an evil queen, other world adventures and even a unicorn! It took a little while to figure out the story and the direction it was going in but once that was clear I found it really enjoyable. I...

    Portals! Space pirates! Wizards! Woohoo! After my initial read I gave this graphic novel . I enjoyed it more when I reread it yesterday and got even more out of the story during today?s third read. It has mystery, adventure and heart, plus there?s a badass granny! Charlotte i...

    A pretty cute graphic novel. Not really what I expected, and that's both good and bad. I expected more of a horror story taking place in the hotel, not dimension- hopping to fantasy worlds. And that's the "bad" part of my review: I'm not a fan of those stories. I don't like fantasy ...

    Hotel Dare is a good and diverse read with great artwork, family feelings, and magical adventures. I would definitely support Terry Blas and Claudia Aguirre again. However, there is too much happening in this book and I really wish the plot and characters were better developed. Adop...

    If you have people who love you, treasure them. And not just your blood kin. Family are people who treat you like family. Even when it's difficult and there's problems. Especially then. When you don't have much you learn to fix what you do have, to make it better, right? ...

    Well, this is one of BOOM!'s agitated LGBT+ comics, where you can guess the author is queer/LGBT+ proactive person from first few pages. Well, that kind of spoils it for me because it's annoying when comics are like "I take a fine story and make it so much LGBT hate free as I can imagi...
