    A fun and serviceable comic book story that feels like it could have been an episode of the 'She-Ra and the Princesses of Power' TV series (set between seasons two and three, to be precise). There are no chapters or issues; just a stream flow of colour, magic, walking around and talking à la 'Lord of the Rings', friendships past and present, and battles. There is one mission: to find the runestone of the Fire Princess of legend, which is said to have wiped out its entire kingdom after its power A fun and serviceable comic book story that feels like it could have been an episode of the 'She-Ra and the Princesses of Power' TV series (set between seasons two and three, to be precise). There are no chapters or issues; just a stream flow of colour, magic, walking around and talking à la 'Lord of the Rings', friendships past and present, and battles. There is one mission: to find the runestone of the Fire Princess of legend, which is said to have wiped out its entire kingdom after its power corrupted the Fire Princess and left her heartbroken and alone in the end. Adora/She-Ra and her friends set off to find the runestone in order to possibly heal it and use it for the Horde vs the Rebellion war on Etheria, or destroy it if necessary. I really like the funny banter amongst Adora, her Best Friends Squad, and the other princesses; especially from Mermista (my favourite princess besides She-Ra and Scorpia) and Bow. And I especially love the hilarious, heartwarming and kind of sad relationship of the buddy duo Catra and Scorpia (highly reluctantly on Catra's part). Scorpia is too precious. There is a lot from Entrapta as well. Nearly everyone gets their chance to shine, to develop. Just... don't expect anything epic, or anything spectacular on a larger scale. There are nice little character moments, and lessons learned between friends, but this is a short graphic novel, so full potential is not given to some individual characters, like Perfuma, and even Adora, bizarrely. The Legend of the Fire Princess itself, which, as the title of the book, you'd think would have a huge impact on the story and the characters, in fact barely factors in for the majority of it all. It's only given potent significance at the beginning, when the legend is first told to Adora (and the reader), and at the end, when further thoughts are given to it and what the characters have learned from it based on their own recent experiences. Its themes are subtle throughout the adventure, and then it's treated like an overt cautionary tale. She-Ra's struggles and development throughout happen at a fast pace; perhaps not given the weight it deserves. There is hardly an attempt at a parallel between She-Ra and the tragic Fire Princess. At least it's clear that She-Ra/Adora has loving and supportive friends by her side, who share in her power, and who love best friend hugs. Also, the artwork by the great Paulina Ganucheau of 'Zodiac Starforce' fame, while fitting and similar to the cartoon for the most part, can be a bit awkward-looking, when it comes to facial expressions. And mouths and teeth *shudders*. But 'The Legend of the Fire Princess (She-Ra Graphic Novel #1)' is still sweet, funny, emotional, and dynamic for any 'She-Ra and the Princesses of Power' fan. It's an episode in comic form, and there's nothing wrong with that. It's faithful in that it is very gay and femme (Bow and Hordak are the only male characters) - I love the all-ages show for that. So I love this comic by an all-female creative team. (Gigi D.G. of 'Cucumber Quest' fame wrote the script - squeeee!) I'll leave off my latest review of a 'She-Ra' related product by paraphrasing what I've said about 'The Princesses of Power' in past blog posts: 'It's an imperfect, colourful (in far more ways than one) little girl power gem of an animated series, for our times. It's magical girl power with depth and great relationship drama - so emotional, tragic even.' What a commendable cartoon reboot. (Sorry if this review is short for my usual style on books such as this. I'm quite sick at the time of writing) Final Score: 3.5/5

    “Aren’t you keeping cool enough with your whole midriff out?” “You leave my midriff out of this.” The new She-Ra is one of my favourite shows so finding out that they were going to be coming out with graphic novels about the series was so exciting for me, and this certainly did not disappoint. This tells a story from inside the She-Ra universe we haven't seen before, set sometime around season 2 or 3 I'd guess, and follows our main characters as they attempt to find the legendary fire runeston “Aren’t you keeping cool enough with your whole midriff out?” “You leave my midriff out of this.” The new She-Ra is one of my favourite shows so finding out that they were going to be coming out with graphic novels about the series was so exciting for me, and this certainly did not disappoint. This tells a story from inside the She-Ra universe we haven't seen before, set sometime around season 2 or 3 I'd guess, and follows our main characters as they attempt to find the legendary fire runestone which has been lost for a long time after its princess destroyed her kingdom with it. I love that this feels like it could realistically be a side quest from the show that we just never saw even if it never makes it completely clear when it's set. In general I'm always a little iffy on art drawn of any animated property, whether its fanart or comics, but once I was able to get past the different style I really enjoyed Paulina Ganucheau's art. It feels very in tone with the show while also being different, something which I'm probably not explaining right but it makes sense if you've read it. This is full of tiny character moments, which is my favourite part of She-Ra in general. Gigi D.G. and Ganucheau really understand the dynamics between the characters, from the ex-girlfriends feeling of Adora and Catra's relationship to the ride-or-die found family dynamic that Adora, Glimmer and Bow have. This graphic novel also singlehandedly made me way more on board with Scorpia and Catra as a pairing, something which the show and fan works have never been able to do. If you're a She-Ra fan then I can't see you not liking this. It feels exactly like a more fillery episode from the show in the best way possible and I would highly recommend (I don't know if this needs to be said, but if you haven't seen the show then don't read it, you probably won't enjoy it).

    Ages and ages ago, before the world is as it is now, an extremely powerful object existed. It had the power to control all the world, all the universe. And this object came into the hands of a kind ruler (whose name is lost to time), who thought for certain she had the power to control this object. She vowed to use it for only good and peaceful things... But all too soon the object and its power became an obsession for this ruler. It changed her.

It had the power to control all the world, all the universe. And this object came into the hands of a kind ruler (whose name is lost to time), who thought for certain she had the power to control this object. She vowed to use it for only good and peaceful things... But all too soon the object and its power became an obsession for this ruler. It changed her. It took control of her mind and body and soon she was but a puppet to its terrible power. It was because of this the kingdom, the surrounding areas, and all who lived within, were completely and utterly obliterated. Shortly after, the object of power was lost, becoming only a legend once more (and many today don't even think the the stories are true) But there are whisperings that the object of power has resurfaced. And that the enemy is seeking it so it can be used for evil. Thus, a Hobbit by the name of Frodo Baggins, along with the rest of the Fellowship, is sent to... Damn! Wrong story... Can you blame me, though? It was an honest mistake Ok... I've got this: This reboot has She-Ra and Pals looking for a lost, all-power Runestone before Sauron...I mean The Horde can get his hands on it. Because you know he will use it for nothing but evil. Because that's what bad guys do, isn't it? So the princesses (along with the token dude) go on a quest. The end goal is to, hopefully, find the Runestone before the bad guys get to it and, hopefully, destroy it...or at least make it so no one can use it. Because everyone knows that all-powerful objects cannot be controlled and will eventually corrupt whoever attempts to wield it... no matter if they intend to use it for good. Well...SOME still think they can control it (Glimmer: "My...Precious") Anyway, you can guess what happens: The good guys win, the bad guys lose, the Runstone is disabled, and the story doesn't take nine hours (and three movies) to tell. But no more spoilers. This first volume was cute, the artwork was bright and colorful, and the story was fun...albeit a bit predictable. I didn't love it like I did Jem and the Holograms or Lumberjanes. But I recall watching the She-Ra cartoon as a kid and it was fun to revisit the characters. This series should make for a fun ride.

    The Legend of the Fire Princess has the feel of an episode of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, to the point I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out this was adapted from a screenplay that didn't make the cut. It's a perfectly serviceable story with most of the characters you know and love from the animation. The artwork by Paulina Ganucheau (of Zodiac Starforce, another comic She-Ra fans should take note of) is perfect for translating Princesses of Power into comic form.

We get the usual lovely character and relationship-building moments the animation's so renowned for, in this case the interaction between Catra and Scorpia. Adora and Glimmer get some good moments in too. Unfortunately, Bow and the other princesses don't receive as much focus. At least Entrapta gets some amusing moments. All in all, The Legend of the Fire Princess looks great and is written pretty well. I hope to see a full comic book series in the future.

    A disposable paint-by-numbers media tie-in: quest, conflict, hurt feelings, friendship. Good thing: Scorpia and Entrapta, my favorite characters, have some nice moments that rang true to the show. Bad thing: Frosta is in the book from the start but her character name is not actually mentioned until page 100. Not good for people who aren't fully familiar with the show.

    I died 6 times reading this…I had no idea these existed!! I’m such a huge She-Ra fan, this made my week. I wish there were more from after the 5th season, I would die. The art was so good, and the portrayal of the characters was so accurate, I felt like I was watching a real episode.

My daughter and I watch and enjoy this together. This is a new graphical novel based on the Netflix reboot of She-Ra, the somewhat cheesy 80's spinoff of (possibly even more cheesy) He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. The new reboot has received a lot of praise for its portrayal of diversity in the cast and the relationships between characters, with an almost all female cast. I personally enjoy the series a lot - even if the plots are made for a bit younger audience, the snappy dialogue and character interactions are enough to keep even an older viewer entertained - and not just for nostalgia. There is something here for both my daughter and I to enjoy together. The art style, if a bit simpler, serves well and everyone looks like the animation. Writing is good and zingers fly just like in the animated version. I can easily see how this would work as an animated episode and perhaps that is where I would have hoped for a bit more. An animated, 20min episode has a limited space into which fit all the character development, buildup and action. This graphic novel has almost 200 pages and one could hope that we could delve much deeper into things there just isn't time for in a fast paced action animation. The graphic novel doesn't really make use of this opportunity, so if you're hoping to pick this up in order to learn more about our heroines or insight into the mysteries of Etheria you'll unfortunately be (mostly) disappointed. Our titular Fire Princess is of course new but the revelations here do not really play out into the greater plot arc. Story: Fitting in between seasons two and three, the story of the Fire Princess (who is not mentioned in the animation) covers one of the princesses of power, but one who has mostly fallen into myth and legend. Both the Horde and our heroes have their reasons to start looking into this (about at the same time). If you've watched the show, you've seen this exact plot structure played out several times before - and it very predictably plays out the same away again. perhaps for a young reader this is great, but for an adult you'd expect a bit more. Still despite this all, this graphic novel fits perfectly into the world of the series. If you love the animation there no reason why you won't enjoy this as well - especially if you starved for new content while waiting for the next season to be released. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.

    3.5 stars 4 'cause it was cute Like I just said, this was cute, but there was no point to this story.

I read this from the library, and if you're not wanting to spend money on a filler episode for a show that's already got a complete story arc, I would recommend you do the same.

    I'm going to be honest, this was a bit of a disappointment. The story itself seems like an adventure/story we'd get in the show but there were some serious issues with consistency with the show. At times the characters seemed to stay true to form but there were a few times where they also acted very out of character. It kind of killed this one for me. I'm a bit sad about it.

    Really good for being the first graphic novel of this She-ra!! I really enjoyed the art style, it represented the characters in a really cute way, it was beautiful. The story was entertaining for fans of this universe and its characters, also the hidden (? lesbianism just makes it 100 times better so... Yeah. Definitely recommended ^^

    Very cute and very fun. This would have been a great episode for the show. The characters feel true to form, and the art is a treat for the eye. My favorite was knowing the ending of the show and seeing Adora react to Catra spending more time with Scorpia, and the parallels between what happened to the Fire Princess and her "friend" and the dynamic between Adora and Catra. Cute, and I hope we get more graphic novels soon (especially post-S5)! Very cute and very fun. This would have been a great episode for the show.

    Excellent An excellent short story that I feel would've made a great 2 parter episode if they had chosen to animate it. The art was lovely and the writing was in tune with the tv writing of the characters themselves. It also brings to light more of some characters attitudes that viewers see in the show itself. It was nice learning more about other princesses of Etheria as well. I can't wait for the next book!

    After binge watching the entire She-Ra and the Princesses of Power TV series in a week, the show quickly became a favorite and I knew I wanted more stories from it's world.

I really enjoyed The Legend of the Fire Princess, it fit right in with the TV episodes, both in dialogue and story. The story follows the Princesses as they search for a potentially mythical runestone, the Spirit Ember. It filled in the gap of the missing fire princess, since the other three elements were represented in the show as powers, but I always thought it was odd that fire was absent. The banter between characters was spot on, and I loved Paula Ganucheau's art. It fit the style of the show really well while still being unique. I believe The Legend of the Fire Princess takes place after season 2, but I think as long as you've watched the first season nothing should be too spoilery. If you haven't watched the show before, I'd hold out on heading this until you get to, so you don't get spoiled and to make it easier to follow, since the reader is expected to know the characters going into the story. If you're a fan of the show, definitely pick this up! It's got some fun moments (Scorpia's part was my fav) and there's lots of girls blushing because of other girls (aka it's not-so-subtly GAAAAAY).

It read just like an episode of the show and the characters acted pretty much exactly like they did on screen, only it felt more like copying than anything. The art style is great!

It did attempt to flesh out the characters a little more, but it wasn't nearly as much as I would have liked. It tried to add more world-building which I was super excited for BUT the plot and the pacing and the formula got in the way. The characters sometimes said things that were out of character... which was weird, but they were their lovable selves. The themes for friendship and love were strong. I did not like that very obviously queer relationships were introduced as best friends... it was clearly doing that homophobic thing where they think kids shouldn't see queer couples. This is weird for She-Ra because we all know that though this graphic novel is in the kid's section, queer people of a larger age range are going to be reading it. Overall, this did nothing, it was just another episode, but it wasn't necessary to the show or my enjoyment. I watch She-Ra for the characters and I would like to see more world-building explored. I'd love it if we just had graphic novels of the characters having fun and being friends or even of Mara! I would love a Mara and friends graphic novel!

Adora (aka She-Ra) is learning to use her powers, so which side will find the runestone first? Even though this says it is book one, I felt like I was missing a huge backstory. If you aren’t familiar with the She-Ra universe, the beginning will be confusing for you. There is only one male, who sports a bare midriff, and a couple of instances of same-sex attraction. There wasn’t a lot new here and the storyline didn’t advance very far. But if you’re a She-Ra fan, dive in! Michelle in the Middle https://kissthebook.blogspot.com/2020...

Based on the Netflix series but not a retelling of an plot line in the series, “The Legend of the Fire Princess” includes all our favorite characters in a race to get hold of a rune stone. But is the stone too dangerous to save. The Princess Rebellion find that by working together and using everyone’s strengths, they can triumph. We can’t wait for more graphic novels in this series! For ages 8 and up, but my six-year-old thoroughly enjoyed this book as a read-aloud. Look for it when it is released on February 4, 2020. Thanks to @scholasticinc for sharing this book with #kidlitexchange and thanks to the @kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book – all opinions are my own.

    This was a great graphic episode to the She-Ra canon. It had all of the princesses which leads to so many more shenanigans and fun. As with the show it warmed my heart but still never felt like there is enough Scorpia. Seriously, when is Scorpia going to get her own show and graphic series? I would buy ALL of it!!

    I loved it, the only thing i notice is that Entrapta's personality was a bit different here, i would say she isn't usually that "mean" when she responded to the others, don't know if i explained myself well hahaha.
