Rating : 3.5/5
Number of Pages : 208
Series : #4 Gloom Cookie
Format : Graphic Novel
Reason for Reading : 999 Challenge, to continue with the series

The Gloom Cookie cast are back and things are even more confusing than ever. Is Lex dead or alive? Where is the alternative monster and what are it's plans? Is Chrys really a werewolf? At least the curses are broken and Damion does not have to suffer having Lex ripped away from him again in this lifetime.

Some new characters are introduced. First we have vampire Queen wannabe Moon Raven. She believes herself to be the beloved of Vermilion (who has the best lucky underwear ever!). She has come to take Lex's place in his heart, but he is not so sure he wants a new love. Second new characters are the people at the Carnival de Mort led by the mysterious Marguerite. She is trying to kill Sebastian as she believes he has too much power to be left alive. She has a long standing grudge with his family at the Carnival Macabre and they will come up against each other in this collection.

It is beautifully drawn again by artist Harley Sparx, I must look out for more of her artwork in other collections. I really love the characters, but I did find this a bit hard to follow in places. There is one more volume and I am looking forward to seeing how it all ties together in the end although I will really miss it.

That's too bad about it being hard to follow, but it still sounds like a good read. I'll get to it eventually :P

Never heard of these but I went and found the website, love the artwork! I bet they would be even more amazing in color.
