Customer Reviews

Wow!

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

Oh man, where do I begin?

The art is stunning, the story is strange yet gripping, and it has great characters... Word of warning though - the book reads right to left (opposite to how you would read a normal book), so the beginning is at the back of the book.

Other than that, I highly recommend it to anybody who loves good horror.
