Carbon – Seeking the Truth (Through Lya’s Eyes, Vol.1) | Review

Seeking the Truth is the first volume of a graphic novel Through Lya’s Eyes. The graphic novel was created by Carbon in collaboration with an illustrator Justine Cunha. The plot of the novel revolves around a young girl Lya who after she suffered a terrible car accident is keen on finding the man who is responsible.

I would categorize this graphic novel somewhere between middle grade and young adult since it deals with a touchy subject but in a way very close to a younger reader. What drives the main character Lya is revenge, but the way it is portrayed is simplified and not so dark. Furthermore, one more thing I would give as an example of why it is middle grade is the speed at which friendship between Lya and her coworker was created.

I found the story interesting and I wasn’t bored at all while reading it. The plot is fastpaced and the characters are as developed as one would expect in a novel of this reading level.

I would be a fool if I did not address the wonderful work Justine Cunha did illustrating this graphic novel! The style is amazing. Everything is cutesy, but still, you get the atmosphere and ambient that is presented to you.


I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
