Totally excited to be tagging part in the Barb The Last Berserker Book Tour, hosted by TBR And Beyond Tours. Check out my review below!
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power meets Dav Pilkey’s Dog Man in this sidesplitting graphic novel about a young Berzerker who has to rescue her fellow warriors from the evil villain Witch Head before he destroys the world!
Barb is a Berzerker, one of a group of warriors sworn to protect the land of Bailiwick from the scourge of monsters that plagues it. But the fearsome crew seem to have met their match in the nefarious Witch Head. Using power from his magical sword, he tricked the Zerks and took them captive. Only Barb was able to escape—and she took Witch Head’s Shadow Blade with her.
Now it’s up to Barb to free her fellow warriors so they can stop Witch Head from taking over Bailiwick. On the way, she’ll battle vampire goat fiends, snot goblins, and a giant with serious foot odor issues (but don’t mention that to him—he’s very sensitive about it). Luckily, she’s got her best friend, Porkchop the yeti, to help her.
But the power of the Shadow Blade has a mind of its own, and the deeper Barb gets into her quest, the harder it is to keep the blade’s awesome power under control.
A fun and fast read that everyone can enjoy! Follow along as the last Berserker, Barb, tries to save her people. Along the way she finds other monsters that need to be stopped. However, something happens that is unheard of!! Barb becomes friends with some of these monsters. Can Barb and her new friends save the other Berserkers?
I absolutely loved the banter between the characters. Porkchop the Yeti was one of my favorites. The characters have attitudes that are just so much fun to read. The illustrations are phenomenal! If you like graphic novels you’ll definitely want to give this one a look. If you’ve never read a graphic novel – there’s no better time to start! I’m looking forward to reading the next Barb The Last Berserker when it comes out!
