The storyline is compelling, suspenseful, and humorous. The artwork is fantastic. I would recommend this read.
Across Thin Ice is the first in the graphic novel series Nordguard. It tells the story of Pi, a border collie, and her sled team. Pi's team is tasked with responding to a distress call from a Northern mine. The team (Nickel, Geri, Freki, and London) takes on a medic (Lt. James McKay) and a military officer (Oleg), and find out that they may have bitten off more than they can chew.
The art in this 80 page comic is incredible. The characters are well-drawn and all look unique. You attach to most of the characters instantly (Nick's my favorite). The backgrounds, especially the mountains are stunning. The writing is also well-done. Characters each have their own personality and nothing seems forced. The plot was good, but my only concern is whether or not a sequel is coming out soon.
Across Thin Ice was published in 2011.
Language: One or two uses each of hell, damn, bastard, and sh-t, brief name calling. (The Language in this novel would make it suitable for a teen audience)
Violence: Two characters are shot in the head (Blood shown), another is shot in his side and is possibly killed later. A corpse is seen. Characters punch each other on occasion. A crow is impaled through its throat. A couple of characters have wounds stitched up from fights. (The Violence in this novel would make it suitable for a teen audience.)
Drugs and Alcohol: Nickel sleeps off a hangover in the beginning of the novel. Oleg offers McKay alcohol, but he refuses.
OK for 13 and up

For any potential buyers out there I hope you do consider buying this flawless book as the illustrations themselves are gorgeous to look at, the quality in every shot stunning and amazing to look at. The story itself is also a pleasure to read, I can't wait for the next book to come out which hopefully will later this year.
Overall the book is amazing and a good buy for anyone interested in Teagan or Tess's work or just someone randomly getting suggested this book.
