Monstress First 3 Volumes Review

Monstress is Fantastical image coming series written by Marjorie M. Liu and illustrated by Sana Takeda. 
Monstress, Vol. 1: Awakening
This comic series is set up in an alternate 1900's Asia where there are half-humans, magic, talking cats and other outworldly monsters. Monstress follows the story of a teenager who is traumatized by war and is struggling to survive. She shared a mysterious bond with a monster of tremendous power, a connection that is changing them both and makes them the target of both humans and other monsters. 

I LOVE this  series so far, it has been so captivating, the story line is complex, the world is dark and full of twist and turns. The art is breathtaking, it makes you stop reading to just look at it. The story opens with a slave auction, which dissolves quickly into hands on action. 

I highly recommend this series for anyone who loves fantasy and wants to try graphic novels or whom is just looking for a great time, while it is really dark the steampunk element in this is lovely and the storyline progresses, with a richness and depth that will leave you unable to put it down !
