Legend of the Fire Princess (She-Ra Graphic Novel #1) by Gigi D.G. and Paulina Ganucheau, 128 pages, GRAPHIC NOVEL, Graphic (Scholastic), 2020, $13.  9781338538953

Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content PG; Violence: G



Two opposing forces are looking for the Spirit Ember, a runestone that is supposed to have devastating power.  Glimmer hopes to use the Spirit Ember to give the Rebellion an edge to win the war against the Horde, but the Horde is looking for it too.  Adora (aka She-Ra) is learning to use her powers, so which side will find the runestone first? 

Even though this says it is book one, I felt like I was missing a huge backstory.  If you aren’t familiar with the She-Ra universe, the beginning will be confusing for you.  There is only one male, who sports a bare midriff, and a couple of instances of same-sex attraction.  There wasn’t a lot new here and the storyline didn’t advance very far.  But if you’re a She-Ra fan, dive in!
