    I didn't enjoy it as much as the first one, but it doesn't stop me from wanting to read the next book. ...

    The second volume of a graphic trilogy based on the authors' Oscar-nominated film. Both of the authors are former Pixar artists who have begun their own multi-media production company, and this is their first graphic novels series, which some say is YA, but I think is really middle lev...

    Oh yes, this is definitely the book you give to the 'Amulet' readers who need something for their to-read pile. In book 2, we get to explore the world along with Pig, Fox, and Hippo. Things get creepy but also there are several surprises that make you wonder where this whole story is g...

    Continues to be a solid, enjoyable series. The story doesn't move forward too much and the action scenes are still a little difficult to follow, and those flaws are once again almost completely made up for by the beautiful artwork. ...

    Another fascinating installment in this gorgeous series! ...

    Second installment is gorgeous and perhaps almost ethereal. The story line remains mysterious and it is not really clear what is going on in this world. For me this adds to the intrigue but may not always work for young readers who often prefer their plotlines to be crystal clear. ...

    I can't believe that I failed to write an actual blog review for the first entry in this series, because I fell for it hard. Kondo and Tsutsumi have created this beautiful world that is also filled with darkness. It's a world that pits cute, sometimes fuzzy, lovable characters against ...

    The Dam Keeper: World Without Darkness is a graphic novel written by Robert Kondo and illustrated by Dice Tsutsumi. It is currently scheduled for release on July 10 2018. It is the second book in the series, and I have not read the first. I think that reading the series in order is rec...

    I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as the first installment. It's still a beautiful-looking graphic novel with a unique style, dreamy and colourful. But this one felt a little more aimless. I couldn't remember what the three friends were supposed to be doing, and the story didn't re...

    I love this series. The illustrations are beautiful and the story line is intriguing, fast paced, and fun. Can?t wait for the next one! ...

    This is the second book in The Dam Keeper series and was a very well done continuation of that series. I continue to really enjoy the illustration, the adventure, and the mystery behind the Dam Keepers. Our characters have ventured outside of Sunrise Valley into the great unknown. A...

    The Dam Keeper is such an intriguing series and features some of the most appealing, unique art I've seen in a long time. But each individual volume barely stands on its own. Here we have Pig and friends stealing a van with a crazy lizard and booking it across the desert to find the li...

    Beautifully drawn but incredibly slow. One volume a year, which takes about 15 minutes to read, is not enough to build an engaging story. ...

    I still don't have a clue what's going on but it's pretty to look at. ...

    Review with pictures and the link to watch the animation here: The Dam Keeper: World Without Darkness is the second book in a graphic novel series for children, something I wish I had researched before requesting an e-book copy to review from N...

    We make leaps of progress from book 1 (re-read before starting this one). Again - the stand out of this book is the art. Its soft, its hard, its bright, and its fluid. ...

    Beautiful art, just like the first, but the pacing is waaaay off and and rushed. ...

    The art is beautiful but I found some of the action a little hard to follow this time. And the repeated hints of Pig?s missing father do create interest, but I expected a little more resolution or clarification of where we?re going than this volume provides. ...

    The Dam Keeper: World Without Darkness isn't as strong as the first part, but it's still good in its looming darkness. I'm so amazed how well Kondo can pull this off and combines cute animals with such a heavy feeling. You can taste the sadness and peril while reading this and it's pla...

    Pig, Fox, and Hippo find themselves on the other side of the dam of Sunrise Valley, but what they discover challenges everything they were taught about the mysterious and certain death that awaits. As the trio explore the country side they find themselves in an adventure that will test...

    The story continues. More mysteries. I think that frog is behind everything. This should all be one book. What I learned: pigs can pass for moles? ...

    I loved the first book in this series. The art was stunning and the story had me in it's grip. The mystery was intense. With this second book, the art is beautiful, but it feels less crisp and the story was not as solid. It's good, but this second book let me down. I wonder if this is ...

    World Without Darkness is definitely a middle book. The art is still beautiful, but our characters are travelling at a brisk pace, making it hard to sink into the mystery of the series until the very end. Still a fun adventure, but lacking the dark atmosphere of the first book. ...

    The first volume didn't do much for me, but it was a quick read, and I had this second volume on hand from the library, so I just went ahead and slammed through it on a walk during a break at work. It was just more of the same: generic young adventurers meet what are supposed to be col...

    As beautifully illustrated as the first, and the story really starts to depart from what we?ve seen in the world of the Dam Keeper so far and heads further in a fantasy direction. This issue feels darker and more mysterious than the graphic novel and short film before it, and the end...

    Beautiful, just like the first one. I can?t get over this artwork. This volume is much more colorful and bright, and not as scary, than the first one. Pig, Fox, and Hippo continue their journey, grow closer, and survive an epic encounter with a smoke monster as they try to get ba...

    Some of the plot in this volume danced on the edge of unbelievable, but heck, the art is still top-notch and I?m still quite invested in this story. I?m definitely pre-ordering Vol. 3! ...

    Just as beautiful and engaging as the first one. But the next one isn't coming out until next year ;-; *grabby hands* ...

    I enjoyed this. It was a little confusing but it turns out that?s since it?s the second in a series. ...
