Here was my initial review on Goodreads:
I received this book for Christmas from my Fiancé, which has become a tradition since the first graphic novel in this series, Username: Evie, came out in 2015. I couldn’t wait to see all of the beautiful illustrations again and be sucked back into Evie’s world.
I have to admit, I was overly excited for this book and I think maybe I ruined it for myself by hyping over it too much. I was a little disappointed because the story was good but just good, not great or amazing.
It was fab to meet some familiar characters again and reconnect with their personalities, along with meeting a few new characters. I was let down by a new character because I had high expectations of them that they didn’t live up to. I would say who but it’s a total spoiler.
These 2 books are the first ever graphic novels I read and I will still buy into the rest of the series for that reason. I feel attached to Evie and other characters enough to want to read more of their adventures.
If you’ve never read a graphic novel, let this be your first.
