GUNNERKRIGG COURT, VOLUME 1, BY THOMAS SIDDELL [click here to place a hold]
Gunnerkrigg Court does not look much like a school at all. It closer resembles a large industrial complex than a place of learning. Within the first week of my attendance, I began to notice a number of strange occurrences. The most prevalent of these oddities being the fact that I seemed to have obtained a second shadow. . .
Antimony Carver is a precocious young girl starting her first year of school at gloomy Gunnerkrigg Court, a very British boarding school that has robots running around alongside body-snatching demons, forest gods, and the odd mythical creature. The opening volume in the serires follows Antimony through her orientation year: the people she meets, the strrange things that happen, and the thing she causes to happen as she and her new friend, Kat, unravel the mysteries of the Court.
