Curses! Foiled Again 
Author: Jane Yolen
Illustrator: Mike Cavallaro 
Release date: January 8, 2013
Published by: First Second
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Aliera Carstairs is a high school girl, a good student, a great fencer, and oh, The Defender! That's right! She's The Defender of Faerie thanks to the new "practice foil" that her mother purchased for $2 at a rummage sale! Now that she understands WHO she is, she needs to understand WHAT her purpose is. The Seelie Court is under attack and only Aliera and Caroline, her best friend and cousin, are the key to saving them all. Dive into Aliera's world again in book 2 of the Foiled series by Jane Yolen!

My thoughts: This was just as fun as the 1st book! I loved diving right in where we left off at the end of book 1! The illustrations are still just as great as they were last time, but the colors are what really make it for me. The colors are a greenish/grayish and white scheme, BUT when the Fey world shows up they are in COLOR! Bright beautiful colors!

Last thoughts: If you haven't tried this series, or if you haven't tried a graphic novel ever, or recently, this series is a MUST! Plus, it's an easy morning or afternoon read! What could be better than that!? So go grab Foiled and then Curses! Foiled Again by Jane Yolen. You won't regret it!
