Description

Acclaimed writer, David A. Robertson, delivers suspense, adventure, and humour in this stunningly illustrated graphic novel continuation of The Reckoner trilogy.

After the events in Wounded Sky, Cole and Eva arrive in Winnipeg, the headquarters of Mihko Laboratories. They are intent on destroying the company once and for all, but their plans are thwarted when a new threat surfaces. When Cole becomes mired in terrifying visions, Eva must harness her newly discovered powers to investigate Mihko without him. Are Cole’s visions just troubled dreams or are they leading him to a horrible truth?

Perfect for fans of superheroes, The Bloodhound Gang returns in this all-new graphic novel series, The Reckoner Rises.

Editorial Reviews

This suspenseful graphic novel is recommended for schools and public libraries.

— Canadian Children's Book News

David A. Robertson's powerful Indigenous YA trilogy gets a comic-book continuation, a natural format for the adventures of an anxious teen turned tormented superhero.

— Quill & Quire

I highly recommend this book for young adult collections, and suggest you check out The Reckoner trilogy if you haven’t read it yet.

— Bit About Books

The Reckoner Rises series immediately hooks you and doesn't let go. Its intense and compelling plot is balanced perfectly with incredible characters. This is the superhero story we need right now, incredibly real and incredibly poignant.
