This is rapidly approaching the day it needs to be returned to the library, so a little graphic novel reading before bed it is.

IamIamIam I like your dedication to due dates! I just renewed a book for the 3rd time online. 🤣 Enjoy it! 3mo
Schlinkles @IamIamIam Yeah...this is the approaching due date from the 2nd renewal 😔 My library stack is always bigger than I can conceivably manage to read in the allotted time. 3mo
TsundokuAleax So what did you think? Lived this so much but it was terribly frustrating to read issue by issue 2mo

This is an ongoing romance/fantasy comic set in a diverse medieval world where royals are guarded by “sleepless knights” who take an oath to never sleep. Lots of palace intrigue and a hint of romance with the princess/knight trope. Beautiful art, especially the patterns of the dresses.

Purrsistently I've been lusting after this every time we visit our local comic book store for dnd/gunpla 😻😻😻 glad to know it's good! 7mo
readordierachel Yes, the dresses! It's such a pretty comic. 7mo

The fact that he hasn't slept in years is affecting him..." Find it on the 2nd fl in our comics section! ?

A great intro to a new series. We have a beautiful heroine of color, the illegitimate daughter of the late king. The new king is her uncle, the new heiress is her cousin. Her life is in danger, but her valiant sleepless knight protects her. There is court intrigue, assassins, knights, tournaments, princesses, beautiful courtly dresses, an amalgam of European and African culture, a hint of romance, magic, gorgeous art. Can‘t wait for more. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Gezemice @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @hermyknee I finished it and it was fun. Clearly just an intro, we barely scratch the surface of the magical elements and characters, but beautiful and a great setup. This could be a really good series. 9mo

My library is awesome. When I first tried to put this on hold, they said it is not out yet but they will buy it and hold it for me. And it came! I will be the first to read it!

Ridiculously cold here today so have barely left the house-just made one quick trip to the library to return this and pick up a hold. Beautiful artwork, fascinating world building and complex characters. This first volume feels like it's just scratching the surface with so much more to explore. The magic system is particularly intriguing.

Poppy is an amazing main character and the art, particularly the color, is also fabulous.

I really wasn‘t a huge fan of this graphic novel and expected more from it when I first heard about it. The plot was okay with solid artwork and I know it will obviously continue with the next volume, but overall the novel did not leave much of an impression on me. Maybe I‘ll try to read it at another time and see if I still think the same.

I quite enjoyed this volume, a beautiful and strong heroine of color, a beautiful rendered comic, with an intriguing premise, and some sizzling undercurrent. I want to read more...but sadly this is all Hoopla has at the moment. Drat!

Trying to break a reading slump. Life has just been too LIFE-Y lately. So far graphic novels have been the easiest to pick up. Also, how wonderful is Lady Poppy? 😍😍

Intrigue! Danger! (and) Romance! (do you now have spectacular spectacular stuck in your head? You‘re welcome 😊)

Still, the descriptors absolutely apply and I really enjoyed this graphic novel. I‘m definitely looking forward to the conclusion in volume 2. 😃

JazzFeathers The visuals look stunning 😍 13mo

I finished this one on my trip too. It‘s good but I‘m in the fence about it. I felt a little bit like I was dropped into a story without a lot of context. There‘s magic and court intrigue so that‘s a plus The artwork is also beautiful. I liked it well enough to try volume two.

4/5 ⭐. The art and color alone make this worth picking up. I'm intrigued by the characters and political maneuverings. It's always great to see a female main character who takes the lead on her own fate. I'll admit Rellen's bracelet's ability is a bit convenient, but it depends on how that's developed further as the comic progresses. Volume 2 can't come out fast enough. #projectnew

There are no words for hard I love this comic. I have been getting the single issues but had to get the trade too. It features a POC as the lead, so many relationships already built, palace intrigue, and assasination attempts. It is a short run that should be coming back soon (spent the summer off). Be prepared to throw it at the end. I totally did. That cliffhanger burns me so much. Just read this glorious comic, okay?
