Adrienne and Bedelia are off to the swamp to rescue Adrienne’s sister Angoisse, but when a crash landing leaves them separated and stranded in a swamp full of dangerous creatures, Adrienne, Bedelia, and Sparky must face their fears just to find each other.
By and large, one of the books that still immediately puts a smile on my face is funny enough one I’ve probably reviewed more of here than any other. There has yet to be a book from this series yet that I have finished and was not happy to have read. It goes without saying that it is such a pleasure and honor to have the chance of previewing the first issue of Volume 4 for the spectacular title Princeless.
Once again we see Adrienne and Bedelia along with their faithful dragon companion Sparky on a quest to save another of Adrienne’s sisters. This time, they head into an ever dangerous swamp and after a mishap with Sparky, find themselves waist deep in trouble (literally at one point!). As they’re dealing with getting out of that, we also see a lot more to do with Adrienne’s brother, his shaky relationship with the king and the mysterious wolf clans of the outlying forest.
Diving back into this top favorite of mine, I was eager to see more of the fantastic artwork that always accompanies the writing. It’s really a treat to see all of the characters get new life in every volume or side story with the various artists that lend their talents. This new chapter was no exception, and the beloved characters were all illustrated beautifully.
There’s really no reason to not have seen at least some of this excellent Action Lab series by now. It is such a fun and solidly written story with wonderful artwork. It’s a series that is so easy to get into and is great for readers of all sorts. There is plenty of time between now and when this new volume comes out, so do yourself a favor and catch up before you grab this one.
