The art was really good in some moments and good in others. So basically I like the art style. And this one was interesting. I been contemplating whether to read the books or not and thought, huh, didn't know there was a graphic novel and wanted to start with that. After reading, I think I might finally get around to reading the books. Might. Heard the series is like Gossip Girl with vampires, in a way or something.
I love the art and how the characters look like!!!! Hope they make a Masquerade graphic novel!!!!
Loved it, but needed more pages! **I do highly recommend anyone new to the series to read the original first.** [Schuyler Van Alen is confused about what is happening to her. Her veins are starting to turn blue, and she’s starting to crave raw meat. Soon, her world is thrust into an intricate maze of secret societies and bitter intrigue. Schuyler has never been a part of the trendy crowd at her prestigious New York private school. Now, all of a sudden, Jack Force, the most popular guy in school, is showing an interest in her. And when one of the popular girls is found dead, Schuyler and Jack are determined to get to the bottom of it.] The series overall is awesome, I couldn't put the books down and The illustrations are great but I did feel the story was a bit rushed. I expected there to be a lot more pages so when I received it in the mail, I was quite surprised at how thin it was. At only 112 pages, I had expected double that, hence the 4 star rating. The Twilight Graphic Novel Volume 1 is double the size of this book so I don't see how they could justify cutting out a lot chapters. ----Bottom line--- It wasn't as long as I had hoped, but none the less this book is a great addition to my Blue Bloods collection and I highly recommend it to fans of the series.
