"Like many before her that have never come back, she's made it to the Countess' castle determined to snuff out the horror, but she could never be prepared for what hides within its turrets; what unfurls under its fluttering flags. Emily Carroll has fashioned a rich gothic horror charged with eroticism that doesn't just make your skin crawl, it crawls into it."--Provided by publisher.

Loved. A well crafted story accentuated by lovely artistry.

The art is absolutely striking. Reds, blacks, and whites create a rich and spooky atmosphere.
The story was mediocre. I think it would be better with no words at all.
Read it for the art, not for the story.

Beauty and the Beast meets Alice in Wonderland meets Dracula in this eerie and haunting graphic novel. I'm not 100
% sure what to think but I liked it in all its strange imagery and interesting if not vague story.

This one just didn't do it for me. I like dark and I like fairy tales, but it was too gory for my tastes and the story didn't quite click.

Beautifully dark and gorey. Exactly what I expect of Emily Carroll, tho more unclear than I’d have liked.
