This book seems to be a collection of comic books into a graphic novel. As well, it would fit well within the larger dystopian genre - telling the story of a society gone wrong. The book is illustrated with fascinating art work that helps to convey the Victorian theme of the work as a whole. As well, the end of the book includes a brief inside look at the making of the graphic novel. The story itself follows to main characters: an orphan named Poe who is abandoned, presumably, because he is covered in feathers, and a high-born girl named Bianca, who is bored and looking for adventure. The two of them team up to investigate the ills of the city and help the Mice, other groups of orphans roaming the streets.

Haiku summary

Born covered in black feathers, abandoned as a baby in the slums of the Maze, Poe has lived his entire eleven-year-old life hidden away under the protection of his adoptive father, Gabriel.

When Bianca, an over-protected girl from the wealthy City beyond the Wall, escapes into the Maze in search of adventure, their worlds collide. As danger looms on all sides, a friendship grows between the city girl and the boy covered in feathers, a friendship that may just be enough to bring Bianca home, and lead Poe to his destiny.… (more)
