The world is not as they had thought. There is a grand conspiracy that began ages ago and has taken control of almost the entire world. One of the things it does not control are a brother and sister, the Raptors, who have decided that the kingdom of the conspiracy must come to an end. The more they learn about the truth, the more danger they are in.
At first Lenore reminded me of Ellen Yindell from The Dark Knight Returns but she quickly took on her own unique personality. The story was quite good. It had a definite ending while still setting up the other books in the series. I thought it made for a great start. Ir pulled no punches and it did not dicker around. The action and revelations came fast and furiously. A very entertaining read backed with excellent artwork.
This is a truly brilliant and original take on an age old vampire story Jean Dufaux and beautifully brought to life by Enrico Marini's art-work which is always nothing short of a visual banquet.
I would highly recommend this series who, like myself, love vampire and horror stories or just love a good graphic novel I would also suggest checking out some of the other works these two brilliant artists have been evolved in, five stars well earned stars form me, this book is great.
This is the first book in a series, so all we really see is the set of conflicts defined. It lays out the lead characters and factions, and gives each a purpose. Then it ends on a note designed to keep us coming back for more. It works, too. The story is reasonably exciting and the artwork, if mannered, carries it well. The manner is impossibly long and leggy, but crisply drawn. The only real oddity I saw was when Agent Lenore was tied up and left face-down in a burning building. Any other woman would lie flat, the softness of her curves compressed under her weight. Instead, Lenore's upper body appears to be supported off the floor by something resembling large and very rigid cereal bowls. Does she wear a bronze bodice, or just have implants the consistency of concrete? Perhaps we'll find out in the chapters to come.
