Amazing story and style! ( )

Wow what an amazing art! It's very detailed!
Love the story too and can't wait what will happen, although at first a was a little shocked about the age difference between them. I like that this time the woman is older though ;) ( )

Beautiful black and white inkwork. On one particular page, the main character is shown wearing intricately patterned, complicated clothing and jewellry with every last stitch, tassel and bead drawn perfectly and then on the next, she's jumping on a horse and riding off and all of this amazing detail is suddenly bursting with life and motion. You can almost feel the air rushing past her! The faces are drawn as in all manga, with crazy-big eyes, but these eyes sparkle and everyone looks different.

The story's really good too. Definitely 5 stars. ( )

A Bride's Story, Volume 1 is the first volume of an ongoing manga set in 19th century Central Asia. Amir comes from a semi-nomadic clan and has been married to a much younger boy; however, she soon wins the admiration and friendship of her new family. She and Karluk, her husband, have many adventures together, but some surprise visitors while they are away visiting nomads hints at trouble for Amir down the road.

An unusual and very compelling manga, I can't wait to get my hands on volume two! ( )

Beautiful art! I'm really enjoying the setting (19th century central Asia) and the characters (Amir! Grandma!). I am interested to see where things go, though I am not quite sure how I feel yet about the actual marriage (an arranged marriage between a 12 year old boy and a 20 year old girl).

Book description
Amira is twenty years old when she marries her husband, a boy named Karluk from a neighbouring village. Adjusting to life in a new household can be trying for any young bride, and Amira's husband is eight years her junior.
Amira was a strong, sophisticated hunter and horsewoman in her village, but though their villages were next to each other, their customs are very different. As Amira introduces Karluk to the foods and pastimes that were popular among her comrades back home, the warmth she feels for her young husband grows.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

As she and her husband adjust to their arranged marriage, Amir strives to find her role as she settles into a new life and a new home in a society quick to define that role for her.
