The Night Marchers and Other Oceanian Stories
by Kel McDonald
More cautionary tales…
The Night Marchers by Jonah Cabudol-Chalker (illustrator, Hawaii) & Kate Ashwin (writer, UK) ★★★☆☆
A positive ghost story. Nice page layouts. Very short.
The Legend of Apolaki and Mayari by Kim Miranda ★★★★☆
What a pretty story with nice sketches! Brother and sister end up fighting each other… Philippines again. Very simple, but I really liked the artwork.
Nanuae the Sharkboy by Gen H. ★★★★☆
And Hawaii… good story! There is shapeshifting (yay!), sharks (yay!) and the story is told a lot through images instead of text, which was done well. The ending was a bit abrupt.
Thousand Eyes by Paolo Chikiamco & Tintin Pantoja ★★★★☆
And the Philippines again… about a girl that seems to be lazy and gives her mother some trouble. Of the stories included here, this looks the most like a comic. Another good one, with a sci-fi twist this time.
I received this free e-copy from the publisher/author via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review, thank you!
