Synopsis:

The Glass family has been in hiding for thirteen years in a small forest settlement called Frostbrook. Morgan and Yale have done their best to protect their twins, Griffon and Rana, but secrets never stay hidden and the Glass family soon find themselves the target of an unearthly attack on Frostbrook. Now they are on the run and must return to the city of Silver’s Bay to face their past.

Thank you to NetGalley and Oni Press for an eARC of this book.

The first place I need to start is with this cover. I will be honest that the cover drew me in from the start. The art style is fantastic. I love the vibrant colours and the very distinct style the art has. I also love how distinct each character is within the story.

This story definitely took a turn I wasn’t expecting. We start off following Yale and Morgan as they travel to an isolated settlement with their infant children. We then see the family thirteen years later, which is when all the action kicks off. This volume is definitely a set up for the story. The twins, Griffin and Rana are both thrust into unknown territory and discover that they don’t know their parents as well as they think they do. I felt that readers are in the same position as Griffin and Rana. We are following the family, but we are only information from Yale and Morgan as the twins learn it.

I absolutely want to follow along with this story as more volumes are released.

Rating: 3.5/5
