The ghost, The Owl by Franco and Sara Richard

March 7, 2018

On a cool evening on the swamp, a figure appears dancing across the water. A human figure, but far from a human form. A Ghost, a young girl spirit that seems to have lost its way. A good Samaritan owl decides to help against the wishes of his animal brethren. Together they unlock the mysteries surrounding the girl and her past and together they face the consequences.

I read this in the format of an eARC and I can honestly say I adore this graphic novel, it is just stunning. The colors are gorgeous and the illustrations are very soft and fluid, which provides a great fantasy atmosphere. It fits with the characters being ghosts and animals very well and also compliment the darker undertones of the story. The story itself was a little short, if it had been longer (or even became a series) I think I would fall in love completely, but there just wasn’t enough pages for me to completely get lost in the universe. I would definitely recommend it though, it’s a very quick but beautiful read.

Thank you NetGalley for providing this copy of The Ghost, The Owl!
