Curses! Foiled Again!

Curses!  Foiled Again!

          Defender of Fairie Realm though still a high school and fencing class misfit,  Aliera Carstairs is back in this action-packed fantasy sequel to Foiled, Aliera’s’ fencing skills are put to the test as she must lunge, parry and foil the Unseelie troll’s attempt to steal her magical Fairie Defender’s foil. Dragons, trolls, fairies and Baba Yaga in a flying cup are among the colorful panels of the dramatic magic-and-action-filled sequences. Contrasting grey toned panels interweave scenes from Aliera’s human world of high school biology class, city streets and bus trips to fencing class or to visits to her talented but wheelchair-bound cousin.  This is a highly recommended graphic novel with its strong female protagonist and cleverly interwoven worlds of real and imaginary with obstacles and triumphs in both worlds, and showing clear intentions to be continued  in further volumes.
