Kit and Cat Seaton have a really good balance of writing characters whose bratty or stubborn behaviour with each other don't detract from your enjoyment of the plot. I think that's the beauty of when you really know most of a cast of characters from the inside out - even when they might annoy the hell out of you, you know that everyone is (hopefully at least) growing and learning from their mistakes over time. These characters are dynamic as hell. And funny enough, it A very solid second volume! Kit and Cat Seaton have a really good balance of writing characters whose bratty or stubborn behaviour with each other don't detract from your enjoyment of the plot. I think that's the beauty of when you really know most of a cast of characters from the inside out - even when they might annoy the hell out of you, you know that everyone is (hopefully at least) growing and learning from their mistakes over time. These characters are dynamic as hell. And funny enough, it's because of these dynamic protagonists that certain new additions to the cast didn't do it for me (yet). Gilly I assume is set up to come back in a future volume, but to be honest it felt like she had too limited of an introduction. I know the broad strokes of Gilly and her dynamic with Sibylla, but it felt like that was all I got. I guess I have some small issues with the transition from volume 1 to 2; if Gilly was going to be an important development to Sibylla's connection to the Norroway curse, I feel like she should've had more page time to establish how they met. The two make a cute couple, but because I barely saw them together I didn't really have it sink in fully that they were each other's "true love". My impression of them after the first quarter of the book was that they were definitely lovers, but not necessarily soulmates. Despite all that, I'm happy for the LGBTQIA+ representation, just wish that I had a stronger sense of how they grew close beyond the obvious broad strokes. Also, I think it went completely over my head that Sibylla was lesbian or bisexual in the first volume, except the fact that she kept mentioning that she was not the one to break Brom's curse and not wanting to marry the Goose Boy. But I just assumed that had more to do with the reluctant hero trope, as there hadn't really been other moments that clearly signified that she might be lesbian or bi in the first volume. Not that there had to be, but I guess I'm just reiterating that I would have liked Sibylla and Gilly to have more page time for the establishment of their relationship. Overall, I'm happy there will be a third and maybe final volume of Norroway. I kind of felt like this could've been a duology, but I love these characters enough that I'm looking forward to one more adventure with them.

    The Black Bull of Norroway is one of my favorite obscure fairy tales, so I've really enjoyed reading this graphic novel series that retells it while also expanding upon some of the weirder elements of the original story (why, exactly, has the knight been turned into a bull?? And what's the deal with the bull's human siblings???). As always, the art is really pretty and clear. I liked the continuation of the story that introduces the troll kingdom and expands upon the history of Norroway a bit mo The Black Bull of Norroway is one of my favorite obscure fairy tales, so I've really enjoyed reading this graphic novel series that retells it while also expanding upon some of the weirder elements of the original story (why, exactly, has the knight been turned into a bull??

I liked the continuation of the story that introduces the troll kingdom and expands upon the history of Norroway a bit more. It also takes some elements of East o' the Sun, West o' the Moon with the trolls and Brom's impending marriage to the princess (side note: I think Princess Lota and her talking hedgehog Mopp were my favorite new characters since they both had ADORABLE character design). I think it's cool that Sybilla has a selkie girlfriend in this volume (unclear if she's a lesbian or bi but they're definitely dating). I do wish Gilly had been in this more considering her importance to Sibylla. The Queen on the High Mountain ends on a bit of a cliffhanger with the story nowhere near resolved, so I'm excited to read the concluding volume when it comes out.

    I missed the first volume of this, and I recommend not doing that. Having said that, I did gather enough info from the story to mostly know what was going on, but I definitely would've preferred to have read the first volume before reading this. I quite enjoyed the story, it had twists and turns all over the place, lots of intrigue and mysterious goings-on, and makes me want to continue reading it when the next volume comes out. The artwork is really lovely, and I love the character design. Admi I missed the first volume of this, and I recommend not doing that.

But a half star off for repeated dumb in some situations, so 4.5/5, rounded up.

    Continuing off on the last book, I like how this series commits to a subtle theme. There is magic found in words and narratives and people want to take control of the narrative. For the returning protagonist Sibylla, it's the conflict of wanting to leave it all behind and a task she feels she has to do. As for the royals involved, they believed they were doing what was best but they seem to fall for the half-truths they tricked others to believe in.

For characters in fairy tales, the magic of the narrative compels them to see everything until the end. Everyone involved, no matter how much they blame someone else are cursed to follow it. This series delves more into how it affects the characters psychologically, often manifesting in the form of traumas.

    I don't think I enjoyed this one as much as the first one. The art is still spectacular but there are so many characters, and it's been so long since book one, that I didn't remember who most of them were. There is a quick synopsis at the beginning, but I would advise you read the first book close to starting this sequel for the best experience.

    It took me a moment to remember book one and what happened since it’s been a while since that was published. Once I remembered I really enjoyed this fantasy story about two kingdoms that probably in the end either need to communicate with each other or face a tragic fate!
