Sophie is a young witch sent to her Great-Aunt Lan’s house for training. Frustrated at the lack of teaching, Sophie attempts to do magic on her own and accidently entangles her magic with a young water dragon named Lir. Now they have to work together to free each other.
This was a very cute comic. Sophie just wants to learn magic but is struggling to do the spells. She is also plagued by self doubt that is constantly impeding her confidence in herself. Basically, she was like most children who just want to succeed at everything they do and struggle to cope when it doesn’t always work out. I liked that she finds friendship with Lir and that they help each other grow as people.
I found this world of magic and dragon shifters to be fascinating. I loved how witches and dragons worked together to keep the balance of the ocean and world around it. I really want to learn more about this world, especially with the dragons because while they did play an important role in the story, the main focus is on Sophie.
Overall, this was a wonderful comic. Also the artwork was absolutely beautiful. I loved the vibrant colors because they really helped enhance the story.
