House of Night (House of Night: The Graphic Novel, #1)

House of Night: The Graphic Novel - P.C. Cast,  Kristin Cast,  Kent Dalian,  Joëlle Jones,  Karl Kerschl The story:
Recently, I read this graphic novel. I have read the first five books of the series and decided to read this one out of curiosity. The story kept me interested, after all House of Night always fulfills its purpose of been entertaining. We can see the books reflected on the feeling of this comic book.
The stories intertwined inside the main storyline had the most appeal to me. The characters were dimensional and their stories were integrated into the main story in way that showed purpose in the story itself. The storytelling wasn’t a highlight.

The art of this graphic novel :
I have mix feelings about this. The main story style was not attractive. Faces where excessively geometric, hands were too big and proportions needed work. On the other hand enjoyed the coloring, it reminds me of Books of Magic in some way.
The elements stories’ art is more interesting to look at. Illustrations show movement, that’s always a plus. Each chapter was preceded by an illustration, which was my favorite component of this graphic novel.


3 out of 5, A great graphic novel is the perfect marrying of art and writing. Didn’t see it here. Legacy could have brought something new to the House of Night series, but the opportunity was thrown way.

I recommend this for House of Night readers.
