A story of love and demons, family and witchcraft.

Nova Huang knows more about magic than your average teen witch. She works at her grandmothers’ bookshop, where she helps them loan out spell books and investigate any supernatural occurrences in their New England town.

One fateful night, she follows reports of a white wolf into the woods, and she comes across the unexpected: her childhood crush, Tam Lang, battling a horse demon in the woods. As a werewolf, Tam has been wandering from place to place for years, unable to call any town home.

Pursued by dark forces eager to claim the magic of wolves and out of options, Tam turns to Nova for help. Their latent feelings are rekindled against the backdrop of witchcraft, untested magic, occult rituals, and family ties both new and old in this enchanting tale of self-discovery.

As soon as I saw this cover at BookCon, I knew that I needed to read this book. I made a beeline for the Lion Forge booth on day two of BookCon and was lucky enough to get a ticket for the ARC drop and signing.

This review is going to be very short because I feel like there’s very little that I can say about this one that doesn’t spoil at least something.

I loved the art style. I loved the characters. I loved the representation. The romance was adorable. There are some more fantastical aspects as well (one of the main characters being a werewolf, for example) that I felt were done really well. The family dynamics were also really great! I loved Nova’s grandmothers and how supportive they were.

I would absolutely recommend this graphic novel. It was just as amazing as I thought it would be. ❤
