    So...I love the Shades of Magic novels and I LOVE the artwork in these graphic novels so far. The reason I am only giving these 2 stars is because I am kind of really struggling to follow the story and understand what is going on. I have more reading comprehension questions than curiosity questions, and found myself taking a break after every page to put pieces of the story together. The experience is too frustrating to be immersive. That being said-- I am not used to reading comics so it could So...I love the Shades of Magic novels and I LOVE the artwork in these graphic novels so far.

    HELL YEAH! That’s more like it. The writing is so unmistakably Schwab, I’ve felt somewhat. homesick? reading this. I love Arisa and Isra’s characters. Soooo pumped for more.

    So, I read Nimona right after this, and I cannot not compare it? If that makes any sense. This was okay, but after reading the Gathering of Shadows, I'm not the biggest fan of Maxim. The plot was okay, but these are way too short, and thus feel not developed enough, the story still raw. I did like the art style a lot tho. Will continue, hope the rest improves So, I read Nimona right after this, and I cannot not compare it? If that makes any sense.

    Yet another flawless gem from Queen Schwab! I swear, she can do NO wrong in my eyes. Even in graphic novel form her writing just grabs you and sucks you right in. I think I may even have enjoyed this instalment more than the first and that’s saying something because I devoured the first! This one had more action and battle though and I was all for it. I also didn’t think it was possible but I swear, the artwork is even more gorgeous in this one than in the first!

    Art is dark and harsh, which fits well into the narrative. I'm enjoying where we are going with this, yet its shortness makes it way too hard to review.

    So much better than the first. Still wish it could be longer per issue, though. :(

    Plot Issue #2 was even better than the first. Though comics are short this issue had a lot of depth to it. The plot is definitely thickening and I am excited to see what happens next. The Pirate Queen is ruthless and Maxim and Isra have a lot to deal with. Maxim is not used to the ruthlessness of Verose and wants to take down this woman but the people of Verose know to steer clear of her. But an unexpected twist is revealed about who Isra and the Pirate Queen are too each other. The Pirate Queen Plot Issue #2 was even better than the first.

But an unexpected twist is revealed about who Isra and the Pirate Queen are too each other. The Pirate Queen has a special power that not many people possess which makes her one of the most powerful people. I love this comic a lot and I am excited to continue it. Character I discussed Maxim and Isra in the last review so I will just discuss the Pirate Queen since she is the newest addition to the cast. The Pirate Queen is evil and ruthless. She kills without question and wears a mask that is uber creepy lol. I really like her and she is a wonderful villain. Schwab has always been excellent at writing villains.  Writing The writing is so eloquent and pulls your right into the world. I love these characters and gorgeous art just makes it that much better. I really hope she continues with this comic for a few issues. It's so engaging and the cliffhangers on the end keep me hooked. I want to know more and I love it so much that I honestly would love this in book form.  Favorite Quotes "I will fight. Not for the chance to serve. But for the chance to bring you to your knees."

    3.5 This bone magic stuff is SCARY. Reminds me of blood bending from ATLA. Anyway, didn’t feel as clunky as the first volume, but I still wish there was some narration besides the opening scene in every copy.

    4 stars! Not much to say apart from that it’s really good! there’s royals, disguises, magic and lgbt rep. Can’t wait to see where the rest of the graphic novels go!

    I can’t wait to see where this goes! The story intensified as Maxim learns about the pirate queen and her dangerous bone magic. Cannot wait for the next installment!

    Shades of Magic #1: The Steel Prince Shades of Magic #3: The Steel Prince Shades of Magic #4: The Steel Prince She's a legend on the Blood Coast. Ruthless. Cruel. With a crew violent and hungry enough to match. Yeah man, this was so much better than the first issue. I think V. E. Schwab just needed the first issue to get into this thing, but now she has it down. I already love Maxim and Isra and I need more of the Pirate Queen! The women in this comic are great. The artwork is just as beautiful. I Shades of Magic #1: The Steel Prince Shades of Magic #3: The Steel Prince Shades of Magic #4: The Steel Prince She's a legend on the Blood Coast. Ruthless. Cruel.

    I am adoring this comic series so much! V.E. Schwab has truly mastered all elements in both books and comics as this is fantastic. This follows the backstory of Maxim, the king in the Shades of Magic series. This one is his backstory as a prince and how he came to be known as the Steel Prince. I find this immensely fascinating as I find that Maxim’s backstory is interesting. There is backstory that builds on this world along with Maxim’s story. It’s nice to get to know more about him and see a b I am adoring this comic series so much! V.E. Schwab has truly mastered all elements in both books and comics as this is fantastic.

    So, things are heating up and I cannot wait to see what Maxim Maresh does in the next issue. I wasn't sure how I would feel about this prequel being given to us in this medium. I was excited, yes, but also wary because it's not how I like to consume my books. However, I am loving this. The artwork is impeccable. The story is amazing--as is typical of Schwab--and the suspense is building. I wish these were all available to devour now because I am not a patient person.

    4 Stars Brought my Goodreads Challenge up to 70 with this 32 page comic! Whoop whoop Reading these is basically like reading a chapter of a book at a time. They are so short, therefore hard to rate, but I'm enjoying them so far! 4 Stars Brought my Goodreads Challenge up to 70 with this 32 page comic!

    The introduction to Arisa is amazing. Love how more magic is being explored too! Enjoyed this more than the first one, likely because we're getting an even deeper look into the world now.
