Summary

Summary

When the King and all the men of the castle die, it's time for the women to knight up.

When King Mancastle and his mighty vassals ride off on a crusade, the women left behind are not at all put out--that's a lot less armor polishing to do. Of course, when the men get themselves eaten by a dragon and leave a curse that attracts monsters to the castle . . . well, the women take umbrage with that.

Now, Merinor, the blacksmith's wife is King, Princess Aeve is the Captain, and the only remaining (and least capable) knight, Sir Riddick, is tasked with teaching the ladies of the castle how to fight, defend, build, and do all manner of noisy things the men had done while the women assumed they were just drunk.

Novelist Delilah S. Dawson ( Star Wars: The Perfect Weapon , As Wicked as She Wants ) brings her first original series to the graphic novel world, and is joined by breakthrough illustrator Ashley A. Woods ( Niobe: She Is Life ) for a rollicking fantasy adventure in Ladycastle .

Publisher's Weekly Review

This lighthearted adventure by YA author Dawson (who writes fantasy under the pen name Lila Bowen), which has a clear and blunt message about gender equality, goes out of its way to keep its resolutions nonviolent. After King Mancastle and his manly band of knights fail to return from a mission, the women of the realm find themselves in charge. Led by the blacksmith's wife, Merinor, who becomes king, and King Mancastle's daughter, Princess Aeve, the denizens of the kingdom have little time to mourn, as they are soon guarding their home from werewolves, harpies, and other fantastical enemies. Artist Woods (Niobe: She Is Life) makes an ideal pairing with Dawson. Her crisp and expressive artwork enlivens the escapades in and around the kingdom. Perhaps due to its original format as monthly comics, the episodic nature of the plot can seem random, though it does contribute to the quick pacing. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
