Reviews The Cobalt Prince (5 Worlds #2)

  • Francina Simone
    Worst part of reading this is finishing it. Love this series!
  • Jay G
    Want to see more bookish things from me? Check out my youtube channel: plot is beginning to develop more from the first book and we did get more of a backstory for some of the characters, which I enjoyed. I liked the Cobalt Prince and Jessa's story in this and how they interacted in the end. I still love the bright colours in this and they caught my attention and held it.It will be interesting to see wh...

    I'm really enjoying the 5 Worlds series. Having read the first two books in the Amulet series as well, I can honestly say that this is the stronger of the two when it comes to middle grade, graphic novel fantasy.The artwork is just as charming and immersive as in the first book. But the story is what really shines here. There are multiple complex threads woven throughout the plot, along with a creative cast of characters... including a formidable...

    The "5 Worlds" series is one of my all time favourite comic series - and I read a lot comics the past few years. Everything about this one fits perfectly together: emotional, original story with humor, heartbreak, action and great fantasy elements. Outstanding and georgous illustrations. Lovabale characters and some really wise dialogues about courage, family and finding strength within yourself. Can't wait for volume three!
  • Cassie Stever
    WOW. this series is so adorable and has left me with so many emotions! highly recommend these graphic novels. the story is beautiful and the illustrations are lovely. truly cannot wait for the third installment!
  • Kris Springer
    Great art about alien worlds and a heroine with great skills. Should be 5 in the series. Marketed as a juvenile graphic novel.
  • Kelcey
    Absolutely adoring this series. While marketed to a younger audience, it had plenty of deeper meanings and plenty of plot to keep me thoroughly engaged.Also there may have been feelings T.T Waiting a year for the next one is always the worst part!
  • Travis Mueller
    In reading this volume, I found myself wondering what I found so enchanting about the first book. Though I think the issue is more with me than the book, since this is a fun little adventure story with nice art and an interesting setting full of neat little visual details of alien cultures and biomes; but it isn't quite what I'm looking for now, apparently. Though there are some details that annoy me. Like Jax's supposed death; it is obvious that...
  • Andrienne
    I love this continuation of the Sand Dancers. Oona is searching for answers. She thinks she knows what’s happening but her lost sister makes an appearance and she doesn’t know what to believe. Who is the Cobalt Prince and what are his intentions? Gorgeous artwork and an engaging storyline will appeal to those who like the tales of Hayao Miyazaki.Access to review copy provided by publisher.

    I love this series, can't for Red Maze to come out!
  • Emmielaine
    A great sequel to a great book! The art of the first 5 Worlds comic was what caught my attention when I saw it on the library shelf, and the sequel is no different. Every page is a beautiful diorama of color and motion. It's just jam packed with personality! Five worlds; five artists, but it all feels like one unified style. Well done, guys! There are a lot of plot twists that really come as unexpected instead of the typical tropes. Definitely no...
  • Lara
    As with the first, the art is simply gorgeous. I also feel like the overarching plot has taken firmer roots now, but I'm feeling conflicted about what happened with the prince.Like they present it as "the prince was thinking hateful thoughts and so the mimic was able to possess him!" but I don't think we really got enough information on what exactly happened there and it sits weirdly with me. Is it that the prince didn't know that the moons' orbi...
  • Ms.Patterson
    As good as the first, and definitely as intricate in its plot and action - this is detailed fantasy where so much of the story is made by the images. I needed to pour over frames and re-read to not miss what was happening. Love the art, love the characters (varying body shapes, gender non-binary people, heart), can't wait for the next one.
  • Ron Turner
    Reminds me of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Geared towards kids but the storyline is much more advanced.
  • Fiona Watson
  • Lauren
    Such a great series. I'm not-so-patiently waiting for the next one. This is a great series for lovers of Bone or Amulet
  • Louis Dore-Savard
    Everything makes a little more sense in Volume 2 of this saga. Which makes it more enjoyable. It stays pretty light in the dialogue but the plot gets more original and more distant more its obvious influences such as Bone and Amulet. IT's getting pretty good.
  • hallie bertling
    💜have you read this series? it’s young readers & not just gorgeous, but very exciting. a perfect quiet caffeinated afternoon read!!
  • Jenna
    A fun world and it just keeps getting bigger!
  • Diana
    Another great installment with immersive art and a transportive story that culminates with fast-paced action and ends on a tantalizing set up for the next book! Gah, this would be so amazing to see animated!
  • Scott Robins
    My major issue with the first volume was that it was heavy on set-up and world building but that I was looking forward how the story would unfold. This volume does not disappoint in the least - so much great action and intrigue here - a wide cast of characters with distinct personalities and an exploration of current issues and ideas like climate change, trust vs lies, race, identity and how evil can influence an entire nation. Such a great read.
  • Stephanie
    A great sequel! Good series to recommend for those who love Amulet.
  • Danielle
    As intense as ever and awfully fun! At this current position in the story, it's giving me avatar: legend of aang vibes. Will highly recommend. Wish this series was getting more love than it is now.
  • Harper
    A little more scattered and hard to follow than the first one, but I still love the art and the characters and the world building so much!
  • Aaron
    The Cobalt Prince is a perfect addition to the 5 Worlds series. Equal parts Miyazaki and Moebius, it deals with the absurdity of racism and the dangers of blindly accepting other people's truths as your own. Can't wait for Book 3.
  • Andrew Greenlaw-Houldsworth
    I LOVE THIS SERIES! Read this one in an hour, just about. Fantastic lessons about teamwork, racism, and confidence all against an immersive, lush interplanetary backdrop. Highly recommend for ages 9ish to 99ish.
  • Jessica Haider
    My son and I read the first book in this graphic novel series a few months ago. He finds it "a little weird" but didn't want us to stop reading it. :)
  • Katie
    So wonderful! I love this creative story and the beautiful art. I am impatient for the next one. I want to know what's going on with An Tzu.
  • Hailey
    I love this series so much! This is the best young readers fantasy graphic novel series that I have read so far. It's beautifully drawn, it has engaging characters, and the world building is unique and interesting. Overall, this is great story that can be enjoyed by readers of all ages and I think will especially appeal to fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender. I'm impatiently waiting for the next in the series!
