I really enjoyed this novel. Not only on my own level but once I got into the story I also started reading with an eye out for my son's appreciation, as a struggling reader needing high-interest stories this fits the bill to a "T". Broxo is a wonderful "quest" fantasy. Set in an alien humanoid world, Zora sets off to prove herself to her family by helping to reunite the five realms in search of the lost tribe of Peryton. Here she meets Broxo, a warrior of her own age and his pet, a gigantic snow beast. They are not quick to make friends, both being quite self-centered and egotistical; but as events unfold and they come to realise they need each other's attributes to succeed they become friends. They meet up with a mysterious non-human woman whose status of evil or good is questionable, a horde of zombie-like people, the ghost of an ancestor and a beast out to get Broxo to revenge his mother's death. All the while, the mystery as to what happened to Broxo's clan which disappeared when he was a baby must be solved. An entertaining story with plenty of action. With both a male and female main character it should appeal to everyone but Broxo himself is the scene stealer along with his ginormous (yet somehow cute) pet. The battle scenes are intense with blood but no gore and the suspense of the story is maintained throughout. All the characters are sympathetic to the reader and this is a very satisfying read. Completely age appropriate to the recommended age group and well beyond.
didn't sell it when I was finished, so I must have liked it pretty well. If you like a lot of deep thought and plot twist,
the story may not go deep enough for you. It had a plot and reveals it in good time, but somehow it isn't fantastic, just
There is a really subtle brilliance with Broxo. The story is simple fare with an appropriate climatic ending, but the real power of this book is the moments in between the story. The characters feel alive in this book. The relationship that blossoms between the two main characters is tangible. Even the back story of secondary characters and the villain gain a life of their own. I could really see Broxo and Zoro being a kid's favorite new characters.
The book is very easy to read. It never feels heavy on the story, but it still seems to say so much. It has the feel of a classic about it. It reminds me of when I was a kid and I read these books that felt so real that I wanted to be in that world and I'd imagine myself there. That's what Broxo did. It transported me back to when I was kid and I pretend sticks were swords and trees were evil knights.
The artwork is expressive and character's emotions display vividly on the page. It ranges from humor to anger to embarrassment and delivers that all perfectly. The action sequences really carry a lot of speed and intensity.
You really can't go wrong with this book. I found myself wanting to snuggle up in bed with this book and be engulfed by it. Bonus points for zombies as well.
Graphic Novel Review by Kole for Book Sake
Broxo is all about the characters. The story may not be all that, but watching the characters and how they interact is a treat. Each one has their own personality and some you just hate. The author does a great job at pulling emotions from you for these characters. You root for the good guys and hate the baddies.Read more ›
The premise of the story is absolutely fantastic. I mean how can you go wrong with a missing clan and a princess warrior attempting to find them while avoiding zombies? And the story has so many familiar elements to it ranging from The Walking Dead to Bone to Avatar the Last Airbender. And that combination should create one of the most epic adventure stories ever. And it does...for about half the book. The good half is where we see the characters of Zora and Broxo finding their place in the world, discovering that they can do more than they think they can and together they can accomplish great things. And of course there is Migo (a giant bear/horse/mountain goat type creature) who is ten kinds of awesome and should have his own book. And...then in the other parts of the story it feels like we're missing pieces to the puzzle. For me it almost feels as if we're trying to combine too many different things together: Zora and Broxo finding their way; the mysterious villain, the missing clan, the zombies, and the death ritual of the clan.Read more ›
