Comments for Sorcerers & Secretaries, Volume 1

Sorcerers & Secretaries, Volume 1: 08/16/13

cover artSorcerers & Secretaries, Volume 1 by Amy Kim Ganter is a two part graphic novel series, done in a manga style. Volume 1 introduces Nicole Hayes, an artist who is stuck studying for a career her mother wants her to have, and a terrible job as a receptionist to pay her bills. When she has free time, she draws in a journal.

Nicole's journal drawings form the basis for the second plot in this series. There is a powerful wizard who has powers stripped for his arrogance. As a wanderer he goes in search for something that will restore himself to his former glory.

In the middle of the blending of Nicole's real-world story and her fantasy, is a romance (sort of). There's a former neighbor who has a complete crush on her. Except he's a bit of a player so there's no reason for Nicole to take his interest in her seriously.

It's a good start to a manga-esque series. I'm curious to see how it wraps up.

Five stars
