Review: I was so excited to get approved for this comic because I’ve been hearing such good things about it, the artwork also looked so good. Anyway, once I started I couldn’t stop reading till I finished it this comic in one night. The art style and colors used were pretty much perfect and sweet to match the characters. I also really loved that this was a paranormal contemporary comic with this great diversity and LGBTQ for both the main characters (and the grandma’s). Okay, I do have to spend sometime talking about the grandmas because they were pretty much my favorite characters in this story, they take over as the most kick-ass. The only thing I could keep thinking of as I got closer to the end, is that I would love if there was going to be more volumes!

Summary: A story of love and demons, family and witchcraft.
Nova Huang knows more about magic than your average teen witch. She works at her grandmothers’ bookshop, where she helps them loan out spell books and investigate any supernatural occurrences in their New England town.
One fateful night, she follows reports of a white wolf into the woods, and she comes across the unexpected: her childhood crush, Tam Lang, battling a horse demon in the woods. As a werewolf, Tam has been wandering from place to place for years, unable to call any town home.
Pursued by dark forces eager to claim the magic of wolves and out of options, Tam turns to Nova for help. Their latent feelings are rekindled against the backdrop of witchcraft, untested magic, occult rituals, and family ties both new and old in this enchanting tale of self-discovery.
