This comic book is an interesting print form of a webtoon series that captures season 1. Natali Presano was born to her mother and father in a hospital, but only her father left with her. Her mother died with a secret about her past. As Natali got older, her father ended up moving on with a new wife and they got pregnant. Her stepmother was pretty evil, and then Natali retaliated, her father decided she needed to go somewhere for safety, but it mainly felt like she was being pushed out of the way.

Luckily, Natali's invisible best friend, Luken, appeared and offered to take her somewhere else. It turns out Natali's mother was from somewhere different, where people have powers, and Natali trained with her mother's sister. Until, after winning contests, she received the firebrand. Now, she is returning to the place where she grew up, as her aunt's apprentice.

However, an ancient evil in the dark underground of Seattle is resulting in some gruesome deaths, and Natali and her friends must work to stop it before it's too late.

What I loved: This is perfect for action-packed comic book/manga lovers. The story is easy to follow and illustrated with many panels on each page. There's a lot of color, cool characters, and plenty of dialogue to help readers follow along. There are also many twists and turns that I did not see coming (having never seen the webtoon), so the book was really engaging. The supernatural elements of the book were really interesting, and the world is built well so that it is easy to follow along. There's mystery, suspense, some romance, and loads of action/adventure, so a little bit of something for everybody.

Final verdict: Would highly recommend this series for anyone who loves sci-fi/fantasy comic books/manga. FIREBRAND: THE INITIATION OF NATALI PRESANO is highly engaging and put together beautifully.
