The Lost Path
The cover art for The Lost Path is what interested me. I hadn't realized the book was a graphic novel which meant an abundance of quirky illustrations to explore throughout the story!
The story is an odd sort of mystery involving three friends who wander off into a forest of enchantment. They encounter an interesting variety of talking creatures. The story has some mythological elements as well. One advantage of the digital version was being able to enlarge portions of the page to get a really close look at the elaborate panels.
Not sure if the tale is purposely open ended or whether this is the first in a series. The reader is left with quite a few unanswered questions and not a whole lot of character development. I definitely give the author credit for a visually engaging and imaginative story. An interesting addition to the graphic novel genre that even young audiences can enjoy.
