Feathers 1

A recluse boy born covered in feathers must help his
first-ever friend, a young girl named Bianca, as she tries to return to her
home beyond the slums of the Maze. They must dodge street gangs and
child-snatchers along the way, and perhaps together will learn the secrets to
his mysterious past.
Being different is a theme that many of us can relate
to.  In this instance though, it’s a
certain kind of different that is not exactly something we can directly
understand.  Even so, this fantastic new
story that is being told with Feathers is one that still manages to be
endearing and relatable.
On one side of this tale, we have the feathered young lad
Poe, abandoned as a baby and raised by the kind man who found him.  Living in the Maze aka the poor part of the
city, he is a free spirit who goes exploring at every opportunity he gets.  On the other side, of both the story and
city, we have the equally spirited young lady Bianca.  When their paths cross by sheer chance, their
biggest adventure barely just begins.
Not only was I very intrigued with the story, but the art
also grabbed me.  With a good amount of
the book set in the dark of night and the alleys of the city, the visuals still
stood out strong.  Along with all the
great art of the city itself and the other characters, Poe in particular as you’d
imagine was a really fun design.
As this is only the first book in the title, I have a
feeling that Feathers is going to be a wonderful book to keep reading.  It’s really fun and hits all the right notes
to be a meaningful story as it continues. 
I for one would like to keep going as they are released and would
suggest the same for fellow readers.
