Book Title
The Witch’s Throne
Cedric Caballes
Graphic Novel
What is the setting of the book?
The book mainly takes place in an RPG game-like magical forest where many different species of humanoid creatures live and magic exists. In their world, every 10 years, a random girl is chosen to be a witch, and for one night (I believe it’s one night) has a desire to eraticate all life.
Who is/are the main character(s)? What are they like?
The most main character is Agni Aruelle, a powerful alchemist who likes to read, eat, and make her potions. She wants to participate in this year’s witch hunt, but is very far from ready.
There is also Grom Foster, a blacksmith elf/giant hybrid who enjoys blacksmithing, cooking, and sleeping. He also wants to join the witch hunt, and is mostly ready.
And lastly, there is Reksha, an orc/dwarf hybrid who loves fighting, training, and writing. She’s also joining the witch hunt, and is very, very ready.
What is the conflict of the story?
Agni and Grom want to join the witch hunt, but neither are ready. They need to receive extensive training in the three weeks – training that Reksha got in 10 years.
What was the conclusion of the book?
They get training from Reksha, who is a powerful and strong fighter. In the end, they don’t go to the Citadel, but there is a second book which I haven’t read yet. For the last training session, Reksha sends Grom and Agni off to fight and kill a different monster each. They succeed, so they definitely have gotten better at fighting, and I think that they’re ready for the witch hunt.
While reading the book, what were your emotions?
I was really excited for the fight scenes and sad for Agni because her mom had died. Each character’s unique personality really made me either hate them or love them, which I enjoyed. For some parts, like the Prologue, it genuinely made me scared (in a good way)!
Do you think the book had a moral? If so, what was it?
It didn’t have a moral from what I could tell.
Star Rating
Selected Value: 10 (0 min / 10 max)
Why did you give the book this rating?
I was always excited when their was a fight scene, because Cedric drew them really well. Somehow, he managed to capture the movement in his art perfectly. I also really like Grom’s personality, it’s just so cool!
What was your favorite/least favorite part?
My favorite part is probably all the time that Grom and Agni were being trained by Reksha. It had a ton of action, but also had a backstory snippit for Reksha which was cool. Every art piece was really well done, so I liked to look at the art!
Would you recommend this book to others? Why?
I would definitely!! The action and art was really good, and so was the storyline! I also enjoyed the character design, I think it really showed each character’s personality.
I would say the age range is 10+ or so because it has a little bit of swearing and some blood, but it’s all drawn cartoonily.
