Book 1: Flight of the Prince
by James Tynion IV + Michael Dialynas
Graphic Novel
* * * * Stars (Great!)

When the King turns his attention to the “weirdbloods,” Wynd’s adoptive family attempts to sneak him out of town and get him somewhere safe. But the King’s henchman, the Bandaged Man, can sniff out anyone with magical blood and Wynd’s scent is particularly distictive. Their violent pursuit leaves a swathe of casualties behind. Why is being a weirdblood so bad? It’s not clear. It’s also not clear that that’s what Wynd actually is. Stay tuned for more excitement (and hopefully revelations) in subsequent volumes! A fast-paced beginning to an intriguing tale and world.
