This is a fairly simple story, but I have the feeling it will get more complex in the next volumes. The art is good and the characters are intriguing, especially Karluk's grandmother. I would have appreciated color illustrations because I had trouble deciphering some of the illustrations without it. I can't wait to see how Amir and Karluk's relationship progresses as the story unfolds.
