I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a review.
Robyn is an orphan from the realm of Myst. She grew up in our world, but now it’s time for her to go back to Myst because they need her help.
The story takes place in both worlds, because Robyn has multiple battles to fight. I liked that about the story. Robyn grows up in our world, gets in trouble a lot, but she doesn’t really learn how to deal with all that before she ends up in Myst. I found it really weird that she accepted her destiny so fast. Come on, girl, you were just transported to a different world. Be a bit more shocked.Some things happened too fast to be convincing. The story as a whole was a bit boring.
The artwork was disappointing. Most of it looked very rough and there was way too much attention given to Robyn’s boobs. So: tiny waist, huge boobs, skintight clothes that don’t look at all comfortable to fight in and reveal way too much for a girl that lives in the woods – so typical of a comic book heroine.
There’s a gallery of different covers, most of them terrible. Some of them don’t have anything to do with the actual story. Like the New Year’s cover, where we can see Robyn in a short white dress with drink being sprayed over her boobs, so her dress becomes transparent. What’s the point of that cover? Or the sexy cowgirl Robyn Hood licking her arrows. Seriously? It’s ridiculously over-the-top.
