Synopsis

The Stranger by Bastien Vives

It's Game of Thrones meets Avatar: The Last Airbender in this action-packed science-fiction/fantasy adventure series. The Games are already underway when Richard Aldana arrives in town. This mysterious stranger smokes cigarettes and wears a leather jacket while everyone else in the medieval realm is casting spells and weaving tapestries. Nobody knows what to make of him, but when Aldana enrols in the games he quickly becomes a top contender. Eschewing magic and using only his martial arts prowess, Aldana also befriends and protects a small boy named Adrian. Who will win the games? Who is Richard Aldana, really? And what is the ultimate purpose of this gruelling gladiatorial contest?

Reviews

Last Man is irresistible. Blending elements of manga and bande dessinee with a loose boldness and a flair for fantasy, this series is a winner. Paul Pope, author of Battling Boy The art is particularly striking, with loose, flowing lines and spare details that make the fight scenes truly sing, while in close-up range, the characters features tighten into focus, creating uniquely lovely portraiture.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
