Hey you! Have you read the 5 Worlds series? No? YOU MUST. It’s an incredibly gorgeous graphic novel series that involves these amazing kids trying to save their fantastical world from extinction. Turn back around from this this review of book 3, The Red Maze, and go straight to The Sand Warrior, the first book of the wonderful 5 Worlds series. (Everything you need to know is in that link.)

Website | Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | Indigo | Library

The Five Worlds are on the brink of extinction unless five ancient and mysterious beacons are lit. When war erupts, three unlikely heroes will discover there’s more to themselves—and more to their worlds—than meets the eye. . . .

• The clumsiest student at the Sand Dancer Academy, Oona Lee is a fighter with a destiny bigger than she could ever imagine.
• A boy from the poorest slums, An Tzu has a surprising gift and a knack for getting out of sticky situations.
• Star athlete Jax Amboy is beloved by an entire galaxy, but what good is that when he has no real friends?

When these three kids are forced to team up on an epic quest, it will take not one, not two, but 5 WORLDS to contain all the magic and adventure!
