Anne Steelyard: The Garden of Emptiness is the conclusion to the pre-World War I adventures of Anne Steelyard, a determined and talented young Englishwoman woman seeking to avoid a destiny of 'socially correct' marriage and to secure a career as an archaeologist working in the Middle East only to be drafted by the British Secret Service and investigate some murderously ill doings of the Germans while seeking a lost and fabled city of antiquity. This superbly written and illustrated, full color, and action packed, attention riveting, highly recommended graphic novel offers a non-stop, cliff-hanging, fully entertaining adventure comparable to any Indiana Jones film.
