Don't get my rating wrong—I really appreciate that the team behind The Dragon Prince is giving us extra content outside of the animated series itself, and I especially appreciate that this graphic novel is extremely Runaan and Ethari-centric outside of Rayla being the main character. But something is keeping me from giving it a full 5 stars, and I can't quite put a finger on it, so I'll list a few things that stood out to me.

But something is keeping me from giving it a full 5 stars, and I can't quite put a finger on it, so I'll list a few things that stood out to me. I'm not sure I vibe with the way Runaan is portrayed here, as he seems more of a heartfelt character than what we see in the show. I know we have not seen a lot of him as of yet, but the characterization just felt a little off to me personally. Maybe it would have translated differently if he was animated and voiced by Jonathan Holmes. (Free Runaan from the coin soon, I beg of you.) Speaking of, I definitely felt like this would have been even better if it were animated. Again, don't get me wrong, because I will take all the graphic novels I can get. It's beautifully drawn, and I know prequel and backstory material is difficult to incorporate into the show, especially regarding a story like this that would probably take a few episodes in itself were it to be animated. But in reading the dialogue, I couldn't make out the distinct voices of each character like I was able to with the last graphic novel. Finally, I wish it was a little longer. I would have liked to know more information about the bloodmoon huntress herself, whether that be information they put together at the end regarding her powers and possibly her own backstory, or just more observations regarding her present state. What even IS she aside from some sort of corrupt Moonshadow elf who is far older than she should be? The way its set up, I do wonder if she will be returning in the show somehow. I'm very curious. Overall, still very much worth it for the Moonshadow lore and worldbuilding tidbits, let alone the story itself, even though I'm almost left with more questions than answers

It was a good story. This shows more the kind of relationship Rayla and Runnan have, it's like, they love each other but at the same time, there's some bitterness between them, the same for Rayla and her parents. And I think, for the way they both are, it makes sense. This comic helped me to understand more the moonshadow elves culture and their way of thinking.

Her character design is really good, and I can't wait to see her on the tv show facing Rayla once more. About Rayla choosing to be an assassin, I wish they had made something more significant, she decided to be an assassin way too easily. The little moments between Ethari and Runnan melted my heart. Now I like Runnan a little bit more, because we see how he feels regarding his assassin job.

In Bloodmoon Huntress we see Rayla in her childhood and find the origins of how and why she became an assassin. Story: Rayla's parents leave to protect the Dragon Egg (presumably to the war that is about to ensue) and she is left behind because of her youth. She is less than pleased at having been left behind and eventually discovers that one of her guardians is an assassin - and she wants to become one in order to gain skills to be able to join her parents. However soon enough she discovers trouble much closer to home. I rather liked this graphic novel - it has enough tie-in to the greater story in order to work as world building as we learn more about the elves. However, it is totally self contained and no prior knowledge is required to enjoy the story. Rayla as a small (somewhat) annoying child is on point and becomes likeable soon enough. The story has enough twists and turns to keep it interesting. The art style is a bit similar to the TV-series in its simplicity but I do like the clean look. It is in no way stunning yet neither does it distract you from the story. If you miss Dragon Prince like I do, this will scratch that itch nicely. For others, the story is self contained and could be read as such easily. It is not however a gateway to the wider Dragon Prince world, for that you should just watch/read the series itself. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.

    3.5 really. The chemistry between Rayla, Runaan, and Ethari and the insight into Moonshadow culture is delicious. Plus, Rayla is a really snarky, funny, tenacious kid. If you liked her character before, than you'll love her after this book. Her childhood persona contains so many early hints and call forwards and I adore all of it. Their awkward steps towards becoming a family is beautiful and it's worth reading for that. Will not say anymore for fear of spoiling it. What got it marked down was th 3.5 really.

Their awkward steps towards becoming a family is beautiful and it's worth reading for that. Will not say anymore for fear of spoiling it. What got it marked down was the cheap Disney villain and titular character known as the Bloodmoon Huntress. She's psychotically evil and drinks blood and not much more than that. During the climax she screeched about some vague grand plot beyond the comprehension of the heroes which I guess was the attempt to make her introduction have a higher significance, but I really don't know. See, the thing is, when the world of The Dragon Prince makes a habit of presenting us with iridium tier quality antagonists like Claudia, Viren, and Aaravos, this is annoying. Literally, no higher motivation, utterly unsympathetic, it's impossible to argue that she's actually a hero, like Reddit loves doing with the former three. I would have been content with ANYTHING more than this. A rebel against the strictures of Moonshadow culture who went too far? Sign me up. A "mad scientist" mage who believed it was her duty to push the bounds of Moon magic as far as she could, "forbidden" and "ethics" be damned? Yes please. So yeah, if it weren't for the cruddy titular villain, I would have happily given this story a 5/5.

While you don't need to have watched the show to enjoy this book I would highly recommend that you watch the show anyway. This book does a great job of explaining certain aspects of Runaan, Ethari, and Rayla's charcters. I hope that the show in later seasons touches upon some of the things that happened in this book. I would love to see the bloodmoon huntress animated and that last fight would be even more epic if they put it into the show. My only compl Finally more The Dragon Prince content!!!

    I've been waiting around for both the next season of The Dragon Prince as well as another graphic novel for the series and I am so happy to read this one finally. This focuses more on Rayla and her time staying with Runnan and his husband, Ethari, after her parents leave to join the Dragonguard. Runnan is exactly how I pictured him to be with Rayla at first, which the same can be said for Rayla. They were both stand-offish, but you could tell Runnan still cared for her.

The blood moon huntress is an interesting villain character for this graphic novel and we see Rayla really progress and learn to understand why Runnan does what he does.

    I got these because they looked/sounded interesting. I like the story but this book doesn’t feel related to the first. And I’m not sure I’m understanding the story since this whole second book feels like it’s not happening at the same time as the first. We were thrown back to our main characters childhood. Idk. Maybe I’m the only one who’s lost here. But the story and the artwork are still amazing.

    I have mixed feelings about the graphic novel, specifically on how the characters and their relationships are portrayed. I'm not going to write any spoilers but I loved the character's personalities here more than how they are in the tv show. Rayla and Runaan's relationship seems more real and adorable than how it is. After reading this complimentary material, now I'm sure that they just created this relationship was made on the fly.

Don't make me wrong, I liked the comic as I like Dragon Prince but I wished their relationship was identical in the main story as well. About the graphic part, it's beautiful. The drawing is very consistent, and the color palette is also very enjoyable.

I look forward to anything else produced for this universe. It’s a great family friendly fantasy story. Probably appropriate for any kid old enough to deal with a Star Wars or Marvel show.

    What a lovely story! The Dragon Prince has so many amazing characters, but unfortunately most of them don’t get enough screen time. I’m glad we have graphic novels like these to give some the proper attention.

    A very cute story exploring Rayla’s early childhood with Runaan and Ethari after her parents join the Dragonguard and leave the village. There are growing pains as the little family gets used to each other, as to be expected, but this was a really fun read!

    I mean, what’s not to love? There’s Ruthari, baby-Rayla and her origin story of becoming an assassin, some fluffy creatures, great action, and it’s got the same humor as the show. Any fan should pick up these GN’s, they’re great!

    If you are a fan of the show, I can not recommend this graphic prequel enough. It gives a lot of insight to Rayla's character as well as further developing Ethari and Runaan. I may have teared up when Rayla called them her family. If you are a fan of the show, I can not recommend this graphic prequel enough.
