Description

A 2024 YALSA Great Graphic Novel for Teens

Talli, Daughter of The Moon is an incredibly epic adventure from French-Laotian cartoonist Sourya that evokes the best of manga and bandes dessinées in one sweeping narrative.

Talli is a Summoner: a nearly extinct people, hunted by those who fear their mysterious powers. As a baby, she was adopted by Lord Borin, and all was well for many years... But one day, their castle is sacked by Borin's rival, Lord Ulric. Talli escapes in the chaos and darkness with the help of the noble (some might say too noble) knight Sir Alan.

With Ulric's forces hot on her heels, Talli and Alan keep one step ahead, gathering a motley crew of companions and protectors that includes the lethargic-but-incredible swordsman Lélo. Ulric's ruthless Captain Nina pursues them doggedly, but she is unaware of the secret of Talli's blood: the secret of the Summoners!

About the Author

Sourya grew up in Laos, and moved to France at the age of 15. He’s always been passionate about drawing, and was heavily influenced by mangas in his teenage years. He studied animation at LISAA in Paris and EMCA in Angoulême, where he crafted his drawing skills and storytelling sense.

François Vigneault is a freelance illustrator, designer, and cartoonist (not necessarily in that order). His work includes Titan (Oni Press), Orcs In Space (Oni Press), 13e Avenue (Éditions de la Pastèque), and his comics and illustrations have appeared in publications such as Planches, Papercutter, Kayak, and Study Group Magazine. His work has been nominated for numerous awards, including the Joe Shuster Award, Prix des Libraires, and the Prix des Collèges. Born in the United States to immigrant parents, he has lived and worked in Montréal, Québec, since 2015.
