Number of Pages : 170
Series : #5 Gloom Cookie
Format : Graphic Novel
Reason for Reading : 999 Challenge, to continue with the series

The final installment in the Gloom Cookie collection. This time the artwork is by Vincent Batingale which is a great surname all things considered! Funnily enough Vermillion and Moon Raven take centre stage for most of the collection. She has got her man and theya re due to marry, but she isn;t who he believes she is. She has made herself out to him that she has magical powers, but in reality she is delusional and left the Carnival Macabre as they discovered her secret as well.

Sebastian and Lex need to face up to the realities of their relationships with Chrys and Damion respectively. Chrys has never really been her own person being brought to life by Sebastian. Damion is extra possessive now that the curse has been broken. All he has ever done is love Lex and has had to suffer watching her die in consequtive life times. He has become wary of Sarah and barely lets Lex out of his sight.

I wasn't sure about how all the ends tied up, but overall I did love this series. I came to really like Chrys and Moon Raven the most and felt sorry for them as the story played itself out to it's conclusion.A great mixture of art and gothiness, not ooky at all!
