Shades of Magic Vol. 1: The Steel Prince by V. E. Schwab - A Review


Hello everyone!!

Today we are reviewing the first volume of Shades of Magic : The Steel Prince by V. E. Schwab which is a graphic novel based on her famous Shades of Magic series. and it published in 2019 by Titan Comics. It collects Shades of Magic: The Steel Prince #1-4. 

It is actually a prequel to the main series as we follow King Maxim Maresh when he was still a prince.
We are back in the world of Shades of Magic and its incredible magic system. When I finished the series I wanted more and this graphic novel fulfills this need. 
It was nice to read about the past of King Maxim Maresh and his adventures that gave him the title The Steel Prince. 
The story was spot on and the illustrations, done by Andrea Olimpieri were incredible. 

Rating: 5 Stars
