Lovable ne'er-do-well Delilah Dirk has travelled to Japan, Indonesia, France, and even the New World.

With the aid of her flying boat and her newfound friend, Selim, she evades the Sultan's guards, leaves angry pirates in the dust, and fights her way through the countryside. For Delilah, one adventure leads to the next in this thrilling and funny installment in her exciting life.

A little bit Tintin, a little bit Indiana Jones, Delilah Dirk is a great pick for any reader looking for a smart and foolhardy heroine... and globetrotting adventures.

My Review:

5 Out Of 5 Stars

Genre: Graphic Novel, Historical, Hysterical, Suspense--

I was so entertained my Mr. Selim, Delilah's unwilling companion. The conversation between the two was hysterical and his random daydreams were so detailed and ridiculous I could not help but be rooting for him. I also loved how gender roles were switches in this story, Delilah was this amazing, competent, confident warrior woman and Selim was a mind mannered, hesitant, inadvertent sidekick who stayed out of the fray and made the best cup of tea (which I too can appreciate in a man). They were the best example of opposites making a good team, the planner and the impulsive doer. I do have some questions about the Great Space Goose though...

I loved all the mischief and adventures that Delilah purposefully and inadvertently got into. The entire graphic novel was a non stop adventure of what Delilah was capable of, and her skills really were legendary! I found it interesting and very unique that the story was narrated by Mr. Selim but focused on the mayhem he was involved in through Delilah- it was kind of like a journal of her adventures but told by another.

I had never heard of this graphic novel series before I saw this blog tour but I am so happy I discovered it. Delilah Dirk was the best mix of action/adventure, humor and history, ending up with a captivating story that I loved and I would easily recommend it to any and everyone. I can't wait to continue the adventure with the ridiculous and impressive Delilah and I wonder at what other traveling companions she acquires along the way!

Having survived a close shave in England, where she was falsely accused of spying for the French, Delilah has set out with her companion Selim for more agreeable adventures in central Asia. But when she stumbles on an artifact that may be a clue about the location of the legendary third pillar of Hercules, Delilah and Selim are drawn back to Europe on an Indiana-Jones-style archeological caper that pits her against a ruthless enemy . . . and forces her to team up with the most unlikely partner of all time: her sworn enemy, Jason Merrick, the man who framed her for espionage!

From vast forgotten underground cities to an elaborate and shocking double-cross, Delilah Dirk and the Pillars of Hercules brings all the drama and excitement that fans of the series crave.
