This book is very good. It has a complex story that shows different perspectives and realistic opinions. It also has incredible art and the way the characters are portrayed is amazing. I like there are some quiet moments as well as action filled moment.

One of the best graphic novels I've ever read. It's a great action and adventure story, and the backstories of the characters are very interesting. I would recommend it.

I rated this book 5 stars, because it includes so much adventure and action. My favourite part was when Rat met Kaidu, because it is quite funny how they race each other and Kaidu wins. I cant wait to read the next book. I recommend this book to anyone who like adventure, action and comics.

This book was really exciting and as soon as Kaidu met the "Skral girl" Rat the adventure was at a peak the whole way through. The Nameless City is an adventurous book that will make you want to read the next book.

A great teen finding who you are tale, with lessons of tolerance mixed in.

Faith Erin Hicks is one of my favorite graphic novel artist/authors and she didn't disappoint this time! Rat is the best! I loved the fast pace and diverse cast. The art was beautiful! I look forward to more in the series!

I enjoyed this book quite a lot! the characters were regular, a new boy in town and an orphaned girl who has lived there all here life. The book however was filled with an interesting and lovable characters. I am excited for the next book to come out, and I recommend this to fans of The Avatar: The Last Airbender and such.
