    4.5 Stars! LOVED this! Totally gave me Amulet vibes. ...

    I really, really enjoyed this! The artwork is beautiful, and the story was captivating. Full review to come. ...

    this is extremely my shit fay stuff found families magic a dragon everyone has cool hair ...

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this graphic novel! It only took about an hour to read; I read it in 2 sittings, but faster readers could probably read it in about 30 minutes easily. I've been dying to read a fantasy children's graphic novel with an original, engaging plot-line and likabl...

    I didn't even mean to read this or buy this or love this, but here we are. I picked this up during a slow shift at the bookstore, and ended up reading all of it and bringing it home for my partner to read. A fae changeling and human child grow up in each other's places, but come tog...

    Cute solid middle grade fantasy. Maybe a little too much shoved in, but I think the fast pace will appeal to a lot of kids. (Also, I love the pigeons being horrid gossips throwaway line...) ...

    Liked it a lot! Good story beats, relatable and interesting characters. Would love to see more in the world. Good magic system. Not queer, sadly. ...

    My rating is based off of the advance read copy that I won from Goodreads. This graphic novel is a lot of fun. It is well drawn and interesting. I was a little disappointed by the ARC because it wasn't in color which made reading it feel kind of like I was reading a rough draft. The re...

    When I get a graphic novel, the thing I look at first is the art. The art is what drew me to this. It is very well done with some interesting and cool character designs. Unfortunately, the art could not hide the shortcomings of the story. The first 3rd of the story is the best, with th...

    I liked this book, BUT I felt like there was too much packed into one story. I'm not sure if Aldridge plans on more, but this book itself had too many plots going to feasible wrap up in one book. I loved the idea of another underground world where sometimes fae children are swapped wit...

    "THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A ROMANCE AND A TRAGEDY IS HOW IT ENDS, DON'T YOU THINK?" This was a buddy read. Thanks, Alex!! Estranged was more of a 4.5 for me. The world building was spot on. A lot of creativity went into this graphic novel, not only with the artwork but with the s...

    What would it be like to know you don't belong? I mean, truly don't belong. To know that you are a human amongst fay, or fay amongst humans? To know that your family is not the one decided by birth, but rather by the whims of others? Edmund knows that he doesn't belong with hi...

    This book was given to me by HarperCollins in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I feel that I might be a bit biased considering I am a big fan of Ethan's art work. I actually own a few prints by him and hope to continue to grow my collection. This ...

    I absolutely LOVED this book. ? The story was such a creative idea. ? I haven?t read fantasy in a while and I loved reading about the magic of the place in this book. This read was perfect for me, I love reads that aren?t too long but also not too short. This book too...

    I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. This is a story about 2 boys. 1 is Fae and the other is a human. The sorceress Hawthorne takes his parents away and takes over the World Below, so the Childe must find the changeling who replaced him in the human world. When the Childe finds E...

    As one who doesn?t read graphic novels very frequently, I rather enjoyed Estranged by Ethan Aldrige. Both the detailed artwork and the wonderful dialogue made this novel very easy to read alongside young children. Aldridge takes common folk lore and brings it into a modern world. ...

    I loved this! I really don?t read a ton of graphic novels but I saw the cover, liked the art style and was intrigued. This is true for the entire novel, great art that sucks you in. The concept was neat and I really liked the entire cast of characters. A fun adventure and escape. I r...

    This was a super cute, fast-paced, well illustrated graphic. I loved the art & the idea! I did feel the world could have been developed more, but that would have required the graphic to be a series, so I grasp why it wasn?t. However, I definitely felt i wanted more - which can on...

    This was a quick read that really sucked me in. I can't wait to share it with my kids, and I'll definitely be checking out the sequel. I am always here for changelings and golems and dragons and whatnot. ...

    Beautiful art and fun world, and I loved the older sister. The story and the themes (especially when it can be related to adopted children) are a bit more strained. ...

    Very cute and I loved the fae and goblin designs, made me think of Labyrinth. c: ...

    it was Fantastic. can?t wait for book 2 ...

    Listen, I loved this graphic novel. The art is STUNNING and the story was wonderfully done. Highly, highly recommend. ...

    3.5 stars. Solid graphic novel with good art (!!) and all about found families and fey and siblings and I guess overthrowing corrupt and false systems of government. Love the focus on family! ...

    I want 5000 more of these immediately ...

    I've always liked the tales of Changelings. The illustrations in this are beautiful. I have nothing else to say. ...

    I?m in love with this story and I need more. This is such a beautiful tale with beautiful art. This is a story for anyone who has always felt out of place and dreamed of being brave. ...

    I thought this was a cute story and message and the graphics were well done. ...

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this graphic novel! It only took about an hour to read; I read it in 2 sittings, but faster readers could probably read it in about 30 minutes easily. I've been dying to read a fantasy children's graphic novel with an original, engaging plot-line and likabl...

    I didn't even mean to read this or buy this or love this, but here we are. I picked this up during a slow shift at the bookstore, and ended up reading all of it and bringing it home for my partner to read. A fae changeling and human child grow up in each other's places, but come tog...

    Cute solid middle grade fantasy. Maybe a little too much shoved in, but I think the fast pace will appeal to a lot of kids. (Also, I love the pigeons being horrid gossips throwaway line...) ...

    Liked it a lot! Good story beats, relatable and interesting characters. Would love to see more in the world. Good magic system. Not queer, sadly. ...

    My rating is based off of the advance read copy that I won from Goodreads. This graphic novel is a lot of fun. It is well drawn and interesting. I was a little disappointed by the ARC because it wasn't in color which made reading it feel kind of like I was reading a rough draft. The re...

    When I get a graphic novel, the thing I look at first is the art. The art is what drew me to this. It is very well done with some interesting and cool character designs. Unfortunately, the art could not hide the shortcomings of the story. The first 3rd of the story is the best, with th...

    I liked this book, BUT I felt like there was too much packed into one story. I'm not sure if Aldridge plans on more, but this book itself had too many plots going to feasible wrap up in one book. I loved the idea of another underground world where sometimes fae children are swapped wit...

    As one who doesn?t read graphic novels very frequently, I rather enjoyed Estranged by Ethan Aldrige. Both the detailed artwork and the wonderful dialogue made this novel very easy to read alongside young children. Aldridge takes common folk lore and brings it into a modern world. ...

    What would it be like to know you don't belong? I mean, truly don't belong. To know that you are a human amongst fay, or fay amongst humans? To know that your family is not the one decided by birth, but rather by the whims of others? Edmund knows that he doesn't belong with hi...

    I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. This is a story about 2 boys. 1 is Fae and the other is a human. The sorceress Hawthorne takes his parents away and takes over the World Below, so the Childe must find the changeling who replaced him in the human world. When the Childe finds E...

    As one who doesn?t read graphic novels very frequently, I rather enjoyed Estranged by Ethan Aldrige. Both the detailed artwork and the wonderful dialogue made this novel very easy to read alongside young children. Aldridge takes common folk lore and brings it into a modern world. ...

    I loved this! I really don?t read a ton of graphic novels but I saw the cover, liked the art style and was intrigued. This is true for the entire novel, great art that sucks you in. The concept was neat and I really liked the entire cast of characters. A fun adventure and escape. I r...

    This was a super cute, fast-paced, well illustrated graphic. I loved the art & the idea! I did feel the world could have been developed more, but that would have required the graphic to be a series, so I grasp why it wasn?t. However, I definitely felt i wanted more - which can on...

    This was a quick read that really sucked me in. I can't wait to share it with my kids, and I'll definitely be checking out the sequel. I am always here for changelings and golems and dragons and whatnot. ...

    it was Fantastic. can?t wait for book 2 ...

    Listen, I loved this graphic novel. The art is STUNNING and the story was wonderfully done. Highly, highly recommend. ...

    3.5 stars. Solid graphic novel with good art (!!) and all about found families and fey and siblings and I guess overthrowing corrupt and false systems of government. Love the focus on family! ...

    I want 5000 more of these immediately ...

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this graphic novel! It only took about an hour to read; I read it in 2 sittings, but faster readers could probably read it in about 30 minutes easily. I've been dying to read a fantasy children's graphic novel with an original, engaging plot-line and likabl...

    I didn't even mean to read this or buy this or love this, but here we are. I picked this up during a slow shift at the bookstore, and ended up reading all of it and bringing it home for my partner to read. A fae changeling and human child grow up in each other's places, but come tog...

    Cute solid middle grade fantasy. Maybe a little too much shoved in, but I think the fast pace will appeal to a lot of kids. (Also, I love the pigeons being horrid gossips throwaway line...) ...

    Liked it a lot! Good story beats, relatable and interesting characters. Would love to see more in the world. Good magic system. Not queer, sadly. ...

    My rating is based off of the advance read copy that I won from Goodreads. This graphic novel is a lot of fun. It is well drawn and interesting. I was a little disappointed by the ARC because it wasn't in color which made reading it feel kind of like I was reading a rough draft. The re...

    When I get a graphic novel, the thing I look at first is the art. The art is what drew me to this. It is very well done with some interesting and cool character designs. Unfortunately, the art could not hide the shortcomings of the story. The first 3rd of the story is the best, with th...

    I liked this book, BUT I felt like there was too much packed into one story. I'm not sure if Aldridge plans on more, but this book itself had too many plots going to feasible wrap up in one book. I loved the idea of another underground world where sometimes fae children are swapped wit...

    "THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A ROMANCE AND A TRAGEDY IS HOW IT ENDS, DON'T YOU THINK?" This was a buddy read. Thanks, Alex!! Estranged was more of a 4.5 for me. The world building was spot on. A lot of creativity went into this graphic novel, not only with the artwork but with the s...

    What would it be like to know you don't belong? I mean, truly don't belong. To know that you are a human amongst fay, or fay amongst humans? To know that your family is not the one decided by birth, but rather by the whims of others? Edmund knows that he doesn't belong with hi...

    This book was given to me by HarperCollins in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I feel that I might be a bit biased considering I am a big fan of Ethan's art work. I actually own a few prints by him and hope to continue to grow my collection. This ...

    I absolutely LOVED this book. ? The story was such a creative idea. ? I haven?t read fantasy in a while and I loved reading about the magic of the place in this book. This read was perfect for me, I love reads that aren?t too long but also not too short. This book too...
