Monstress: The Awakening by Marjorie Liu

“Set in an alternate world of art deco beauty and steampunk horror, Monstress tells the epic story of Maika Halfwolf, a teenage survivor of a cataclysmic war between humans and their hated enemies, the Arcanics. In the face of oppression and terrible danger, Maika is both hunter and hunted, searching for answers about her mysterious past as those who seek to use her remain just one step behind … and all the while, the monster within begins to awaken …” This was a crazy adventure of a read full of some truly badass women! The story was a bit confusing at times, but you start to understand what’s happening right along with Maika. Perhaps my favorite part of this graphic novel is Takeda’s absolutely gorgeous artwork! I’m looking forward to the release of volume 2.
