    I think I would have enjoyed book this more if I was reading the actual print book, and not the digital copy. The lettering was very fine and rather difficult to read at sometimes. While the artwork was beautiful and colorful, I sometimes struggled to figure out what was going on with the plot. I am going to read the next part of the series, for I would like to know what happened to the main characters.

We've actually completed four (all so far?) of the graphic novel, and I'm not sure if the text alone would sustain my 8-year old twins. But having a Peter Pan/Robin Hood/Link prototype, and also the young boy somehow rising as the chosen is an archetype that just will ring true for my guys. Other pluses that come from this are more of a quest/team uniting than pure battle for battle's sake. Time travel gets mixed in, along with the evil empire "Horde/Shaitiki" possibly just being deprived and different on the outside than the "good" guys. Also we get some Machievellian maneuvers amongs the ranks of the good. The boys noticed when the artist changed for the books, but they thought it was intentional with showing the time travel zones. Overall enjoyable with "3" and "4" moments, I guess the overriding www.teddekker.com makes me feel like we walked into a laser-guided demographic, so that knocks the review down to a three. Plus the vampire motif is sketchily mapped out (at least at this point). That and mandatory love pairing of the boy-girl chosen felt a little bit like a hastily arranged marriage, (and a weak bone to toss to the few femme followers)? Some of book four made me wonder how a Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court might play for the boys, and for me. I've not read that. I wonder if there are more graphic novel treatments of other classics, or is that seen too much as the short-cut idiot's guide to the cliff notes etc.... Hey, this is better than watching a superhero DVD, and takes about the same time with better vocabulary and more cinema within the crania.

No, the book seems kind of cleche, it is a somewhat orgional book but the elements that make up the book itself are overused. Text to Self: johnis, the main character, is somewhat of the person to not beleive in himself witch i feel like i cant do things everyday of my life. Text to Text: the game that was played to see who would be the chosen kind of reminds me of the hunger games, they dont fight to the death but think of soccer and blood and beating sticks and broken bones. Text to World: people feel over whealmed every day not knowing how they can make it out of a situation much like the 4 gaurds.

    I started this book without realizing that it fits into an overarching saga. No wonder I was so confused. The artwork is lovely, and some of the panel divisions are particularly creative. There were a few obvious oddities, however, that stood out--for example, one character's hair varies from red, brown, or blonde from scene to scene. Some of the characters were hard to distinguish from one another, as well, but Reis' attention to detail on everything from a human bicep to a craggy desert is gene I started this book without realizing that it fits into an overarching saga.

Some of the characters were hard to distinguish from one another, as well, but Reis' attention to detail on everything from a human bicep to a craggy desert is generally quite good. I am sure this book (and series) is fun for someone familiar with Dekker's work, but I wish it had stood on its own a little more. The art caught my attention, but the story just doesn't make sense out of context.

    This was a pretty enjoyable graphic novel. There are strange looking bat type creatures, both good and bad, that add some fun visuals. The pictures are well done and accompany the story well. It's your typical good vs. evil kind of story. The background for the story reminds me of middle age times, but cast in the desert. This book would be enjoyed by those who like action/adventure comics or those who like fantasy. I'm looking forward to the next one. Recommended for middle school and up.

    I liked the story but some of it was hard to follow and sometimes the art didn't make it completely clear what was going on, mostly in the battles. I did find the last half very interesting and fast paced and I look forward to getting more of the story. Very intriguing story-line. The art was pretty good but not super fantastic. Worth the read.

    I really enjoyed this graphic novel. I am going to read the book now that I have read this edition. It reminds me of The Hunger Games with a little bit of Lord of the Rings and King Arthur thrown in. I really enjoyed this graphic novel. I am going to read the book now that I have read this edition.

    This is a great graphic novel. I love Ted Dekker's book Chosen, and the graphic novel definitely does it justice. The art style is incredible, and the characters were almost like i imagined them. I can't wait to read the rest of these.

    I was recommended these books by a friend, and was largely let down. I felt like I couldn't follow the plot and didn't find it intriguing enough.

    Overall, a good quick read. I was disappointed in the Hordehairball fight scene at the beginning. The regular book (not comic) makes that scene seem so much more epic and cunning.
