BRIGHTLY WOVEN Graphic Novel / Book Review

It’s a big release day today. One of my highly anticipated releases is the BRIGHTLY WOVEN the graphic novel. 

I first fell in love with Brightly Woven back in 2010 when the book was first released. You can read our review and features for it here. This graphic novel reminded me of all the things I enjoyed about Sydelle and North’s story. Leigh Dragoon’s adaptation and Kit Seaton’s illustrations were spot on. I’m thrilled to add this graphic novel beside my copy of Brightly Woven. 

Whether you’re a long time fan of Alex Bracken's debut, or new to the story of Sydelle and North Dragoon's graphic novel adaptation is worth picking up. And yes, I’m still hoping for more of Sydelle and North’s story.... I know it’s wishful thinking, but still. 

Thank you to Disney Book for providing me a copy of this book to review. 


From #1 New York Times best-selling author Alexandra Bracken comes a magical graphic novel about discovering your own power, perfect for fans of the Amulet series and Howl's Moving Castle. 

Extraordinary things just don't happen to fourteen-year-old Sydelle Mirabil, a talented weaver who dreams about life outside of her tiny village. But that all changes when a mysterious young wizard named Wayland North appears and asks for Sydelle's help. He's got a shocking secret that could stop a war between kingdoms-if he can reach the capital with the news in time. North needs a navigator who can mend his magical cloaks, and Sydelle is perfect for the job. 

As Sydelle and North race against the clock to deliver their message, they must contend with unusually wild weather and a dark wizard who will do anything to stop them. But the sudden earthquakes and freak snowstorms may not be a coincidence. As Sydelle discovers more about North's past and her own strange abilities, she realizes that the fate of the kingdom may rest in her fingertips.
