    Rating: 8.25/10 Thanks to the publisher and author for an advance reading copy of The Dragon Path for review consideration. This did not influence my thoughts or opinions. The Dragon Path is a artistically beautiful, thoroughly engaging graphic novel that is sure to excite fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Kazu Kibuishi’s Amulet.

This did not influence my thoughts or opinions. The Dragon Path is a artistically beautiful, thoroughly engaging graphic novel that is sure to excite fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Kazu Kibuishi’s Amulet. I’m starting to become a sucker for Scholastic’s Graphix line. While middle-grade fiction isn’t necessarily my forte, the little kid inside who used to watch Saturday morning cartoons and Dragon Ball Z re-runs jumps for joy every time I have a chance to read a new piece of fantasy literature from them. While there is opportunity to flesh the story out a tad more, this was a very enjoyable coming-of-age hero story mixed with ancient prophecy, family dynasties, and exploring one’s past to make for a better future. Plus, ANIMAL COMPANION. How can you go wrong? Seriously, giant cat with a horn that shoots energy blasts. What more could you want? Young’s story has plenty of twists to keep the reader engaged, and while this story can seem familiar with some of the usual suspect tropes, the artwork and the reveals will prove a breath of fresh air. I especially enjoyed how certain character movements were put into a slow-motion form, giving you each count during fights; rather than just simply having a first and last step for each strike. It is something I don’t see very often but is just an added bonus for a graphic novel. I hope this is only the start of something bigger, but if it is simply a standalone, the story is wrapped up with a bow by the time you turn the last page.

    This book is awesome! I need to talk to my pals at the local comic book store to give a full review, but for now, we’re holding at 5 stars!! Quick notes: -ARC was mostly b&w, but the color palate appears very rose, peach, orange, sunset compared to many other MG graphic novels. -The style of the drawings have elements of movement that seem established, but I can’t place. -There is a giant, badass, cuddly CATICORN!! -It covers all the elements of legendary action-adventures, and will lend itself nat This book is awesome!

    Ancient prophecies? Family dynasties? Powerful mystics? All that AND a ginormous cat with a unicorn-style horn that blasts energy? SIGN ME UP. Seriously, this is a rich and compelling read (first in a series, I hope!) that will be devoured by fans of Kazu Kibuishi (Amulet), Peter Wartman and Xanthe Bouma (Dragon Prince graphics) and more. Cannot wait to sell this one to stores. #ScholasticEmployee

    It was amazing! You should give it a try if you like adventure; you'll likely be compelled to finish it in one sitting. It was amazing! You should give it a try if you like adventure; you'll likely be compelled to finish it in one sitting.

    The Dragon Path was a fun, fantastical graphic novel. Prince Sing's nomadic family is on their way to reclaim the Old Land. They have chosen to cut through the Dragon Path, an area ruled by their sworn enemies. Facing attack, Prince Sing steps up and learns all about his family history and secrets while also learning the meaning of "home". With giant animal guardians, big battle scenes, and family magic, feels like a mash up of the Amulet series meets Mad Max: Fury Road meets Avatar the Last Air The Dragon Path was a fun, fantastical graphic novel. Prince Sing's nomadic family is on their way to reclaim the Old Land. They have chosen to cut through the Dragon Path, an area ruled by their sworn enemies. Facing attack, Prince Sing steps up and learns all about his family history and secrets while also learning the meaning of "home". With giant animal guardians, big battle scenes, and family magic, feels like a mash up of the Amulet series meets Mad Max: Fury Road meets Avatar the Last Airbender. The illustrations are action-packed and visceral (I especially like Young's pointillism line drawings that signify memories). I wish there was a little character development and depth to the story. Much like the Amulet series, it felt like an animated TV episode that should be followed by many more installments that give more overall story arcs. I wanted to know more about Aunt Hu (in my opinion, the best character) and her hinted-at storied history with wars and the Dragon clan. I also wanted more context around the Dragon clan besides the fact that they are enemies. Though I really liked what I saw and read on the page, it just left me wanting more! There is a darkness to this story that skews up in age - probably 12 and up - though if kids already watch The Lord of the Rings or Star Wars movies, the depiction of weapons won't be any worse. Great for fans of fantastical TV shows, movies, and graphic novels!

    Young Prince Sing is traveling with his family, the Wong Clan, as they seek to reclaim Old Land, their ancestral home. They must take the treacherous Dragon Path, which is ruled by the Dragon Tribe, a clan of slobbering evil dragon people. When the Wong Clan is betrayed by one of their own and ensnared in a trap set by the Dragon Tribe, all seems lost. No one expects the young prince to have the key to their rescue. This is a dramatic folkloric-like fantasy with steampunk trappings – the Wong Cla Young Prince Sing is traveling with his family, the Wong Clan, as they seek to reclaim Old Land, their ancestral home. They must take the treacherous Dragon Path, which is ruled by the Dragon Tribe, a clan of slobbering evil dragon people. When the Wong Clan is betrayed by one of their own and ensnared in a trap set by the Dragon Tribe, all seems lost. No one expects the young prince to have the key to their rescue. This is a dramatic folkloric-like fantasy with steampunk trappings – the Wong Clan travels in a vehicle reminiscent of Mad Max’s giant truck, but with sleeping quarters and details of a 19th century Chinese house. There are deceptions, epic battles, a magical orb, and allusions to political hostilities that go back generations, not to mention a giant magical unicorn cat named Midnight. The political feud between clans may go over some readers’ heads, but the battles and Sing’s stay with a Mystic make for great drama. Prince Sing cannot be older than 12, but he is wiser than his years. Kids will cheer as he saves the clan. The art is beautiful, even in the black and white of the uncorrected proof.

    Lord Wong on the advice of his adviser, Quan goes to win back the Old Land from the monster which drove his ancestors away with a convoy and his family. Little does he realise that the enemy is much closer than he expected. This adventure packed tale is a gripping read. It encourages the reader to explore one's past to know more about oneself rather than to dwell upon it. I liked how the illustrator portrays the character's action moves in a slow motion. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Lord Wong on the advice of his adviser, Quan goes to win back the Old Land from the monster which drove his ancestors away with a convoy and his family.

    Anyone who loves Nickelodeon’s “Avatar” will appreciate this. Solid hero coming of age adventure story: aging father swayed by a poisonous advisor, brave army commander who saves the prince and accepts new alliances, powerful bad guys who also accept new alliances, misunderstood “monster”, family legacy, etc.

    My brother looked at this first and he compared it to Mad Max. After reading it, I can see why he compared it to Mad Max, but at the same time it is NOTHING like Mad Max. I wasn't really a fan of the end. I wanted an epilogue or a time-skip, like Timo the Adventurer. Verdict: A unique graphic novel that blends fantasy, mythology, and dystopian elements for an exciting read. My brother looked at this first and he compared it to Mad Max.

    Good sized GN with appealing art and just enough speech bubbles. Story is lacking and reads like a kids cartoon show. For me some parts were cringe worthy in the dialogue but kids will like this one so I will purchase.

    This was kind of generic, but still sweet. I really enjoyed the themes of family and the "monster" was so cute. This was kind of generic, but still sweet. I really enjoyed the themes of family and the "monster" was so cute.

    Beautiful, fully detailed artwork though the story felt a bit lackluster and cliché. I really liked the Komodo dragons though. They were about their business.

    Disclaimer: My review for this book is based on an ARC sent to my workplace by Scholastic; all the following opinions I express are wholly my own. A graphic novel perfect for ATLA fans and the like. I thought the writing and the art was decent- I can picture the intended audience of middle-grade kids getting into it and enjoying the story, but as an older reader certain aspects felt lacking; the plot could've been additionally fleshed out, the mythology could've been expanded more, etc. Overal Disclaimer: My review for this book is based on an ARC sent to my workplace by Scholastic; all the following opinions I express are wholly my own.
