I didn't like this book. To me, the characters were one-dimensional, the villian cartoonishly evil and the plot contrived. I expected to like this book much more since I do like Avi's other novels.

A cool graphic novel about the forces of good and evil trying to stay in balance to provide energy to NYC. ( )

What happens when the fate of the world is in the hands of two kids?

Great for those students that don't want to read a traditional book. Fun and full of adventure. ( )

I loved this graphic novel. I have very little familiarity with this genre but this book really has encouraged me to seek out more graphic novels. It's a story about a boy and a girl who have a token that they know is very powerful but they're not quite sure in which way. The island they live on is controlled by the Kurbs who demand that each year on the 21st day of June , the Kurbs shall hid their power in some form. The people will have six months to search for it and return it. If not the city will grow dark and so cold that it will freeze. Let the adventure begin!
