Hinges Book 2: Paper Tigers by Meredith McClaren

Orio is back again with her buddy Bauble.  She still hasn't figured out what Bauble is but he is helping her.  She's found her calling with stitching and mending and life is going better now.  But it doesn't stay that way...

Image Comics sent me a copy of this story for review (thank you).  It's being published today and you can get a copy HERE.

Orio loses Bauble and tries to follow him.  What she finds is that there is wall around the town.  No one talks about it.  As she heads back home, the police take Bauble from her and tell her he's no odd.  She'll have to pick a new one.  She's not going to do that and she decides to approach the magistrate and ask for his return.  Instead, she steals him back.  And now she has to go out beyond the wall...

She and Bauble roam the wilderness hoping to find another town.  What she finds instead is Abernathy.  He's left his city behind and was trying to find hers.  She tells him it's not a good place to be and that's what he tells her about his town. When the paper tigers come to visit, they end up following them and find a forgotten city.  

This story had a bit more text to it and I understood it better than the first one.  I'm still not sure where the author is going with the story but I am sure I'll read the installment when it comes out.  The illustrations appeal to me and the story is magical.  I like it.
