Zatanna: The Jewel of Gravesend

We rated this book:


Unlike her famous parents, Zatanna hates being on stage performing illusions and magic tricks. With summer only just starting, Zatanna has plenty of time to spend with friends and her boyfriend and find ways to get out of watching her parents’ show. That is until a troupe passes through with strange magic called mirror script written all over the walls. Zatanna shouldn’t have real magic, yet she does, but the truth may be impossible to find with secrets hidden around every corner.

Teenage drama is hard enough, so let’s just throw in some magic. The art is beautiful and simple but elegant and helps bring the story to life. I had a hard time telling the characters apart and remembering who’s who. They all have the same voice, and several look a little too much alike. The story itself was good, a little predictable, but good nonetheless, and I look forward to the next installment.
