This is the third and final book in the Nameless City series. I have absolutely loved this series; it’s such a well done graphic novel series and an intricate fantasy. I love the world-building, the politics, the characters, and the story here.
Erzi has taken control of the Nameless City and is threatening use a horrible weapon on the city to end the war once and for all. Rat and Kai must steal the weapon and find a way to finally bring peace to the Nameless City.
This graphic novel is incredibly well put together. The illustration is very well done, full of great detail and color and very easy to follow. The world-building was amazing and I loved all of the characters. Kai’s mom finally joins the story in a big way and I really enjoyed learning more about her.
I loved the way everything was wrapped up. This was just an excellent conclusion to an amazing fantasy graphic novel series.
Overall I highly recommend this whole series. I loved pretty much everything about it. My whole family read this graphic novel series (husband and 11 yr old son) and they all really enjoyed it. I am really looking forward to seeing what Hicks will work on next!
Faith Erin Hicks has finished this series in spectacular fashion - Great, tight plot; believable, likable characters; and gorgeous artwork. Her pages are both lush and still economical, nothing is wasteful! I especially like how the ending could preview a future story for Rat and Kaidu, something I wouldn't mind reading! I guess my only question would be this: Whatever happened to the two intrepid travelers who prologued the first two books?
Fun characters, good artwork, and a good story which ends believably! In general, graphic novels in the YA class are better than adult oriented ones, and this is no exception. I love the characters in the book, the story, and the awesome medieval Asian style city. Probably the best thought out graphic novel I've read in months
This series is wonderful. It has wonderfully diverse characters and the story is relevant and meaningful, jut just silly fluff.. It’s engaging, interesting, and empowering. My 9 year old daughter read the series aloud to me and we both didn’t want to put it down.
I love Faith Erin Hicks’s artwork and read most of her books, and was especially interested in this conclusion to a series I’ve been keeping up with. The action/fight scenes in this book are superb, and it’s nice to see some great, powerful women characters lead the story. The main plot is a tiny bit hard to follow as I at first couldn’t figure out what was going on with the whole Napatha thing, and I was worried there were things I wasn’t remembering from the previous books. Overall a solid, but not exceptional, series.
The long wait for the third book was totally worth it. Satisfying ending that actually ends. Great build up, characters stay true to form all the way through, and omg Kai's mom rules. I'm glad I got to know these people and hear their story.
