Shades of Magic Vol. 3: The Rebel Army by V. E. Schwab - A Mini Review


Hello everyone!!

Today we are reviewing Shades of Magic Vol. 3: The Rebel Army by V. E. Schwab which is a graphic novel based on her famous Shades of Magic series. and it published in 2020 by Titan Comics. It collects Shades of Magic: The Rebel Army #9 - 12. 

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. It felt so good to be back in this world even if it was for a short time.
I read this volume I believe in an hour and I loved every bit of it. The story continues and concludes beautifully and the illustrations were stunning as always. 
This volume was more intense and action packed than the previous ones. 
I definitely need more from this world.

Rating: 5 Stars

Synopsis from Goodreads: 
Written by #1 New York Times bestselling author V.E. Schwab and torn from the universe of the Shades of Magic sequence, this third volume in the all-original comic book adventure series sees the saga of the the story begun in The Steel Prince - perfect for fans of bloody, swashbuckling adventure and gritty fantasy! 
Once just a single ship, now the pirate fleet of the Rebel Army numbers in its thousands. Made up of traitors from each of the three empires, the fleet, who once made the open waters of the Blood Coast their home, have set their sights on establishing their own land based empire with London as their capital. 
The Rebel Army is a battalion made up of traitors to each of the three empires, who've claimed the open waters of the Blood Coast as their territory. Led by a Faroan, a Veskan, and an Arnesian (Rowan, the Antari from the Night of Knives), the RA started as a rag-tag gang, a single ship, but in the last few months, they've gained momentum. Once content to claim the open water as their empire, they've grown in ambition, and scope, and now they're claiming ports, creeping toward a full-on land assault. Their goal? London. But first, they'll have to cross Verose, where Maxim, Isra, and the royal guard are waiting. 

See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
