Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Manga readers with a taste for stylish, delirious melodrama will enjoy this addition to the long-running "The Cain Saga" which also includes the manga series Angel Sanctuary. Late 19th-century London society women swoon at the sight of slender, sloe-eyed young Lord Cain, Earl of Hargreaves. They don't recognize his hereditary burden of melancholy, from which he distracts himself by tracking down dangerous maniacs. He is accompanied and sometimes aided by Riff, his manservant and extremely close companion, and by his doll-like, 10-year-old half-sister, Marie, who serves as an unwitting lure for serial killers. Cain is menaced by his mad-scientist half-brother Dr. Jizabel Disraeli, assassin for a secret criminal organization founded by Cain's monstrously abusive father. The four stories in this volume are thankfully self-contained, each developing from an initially baffling mystery into a frenzy of dark revelations and derring-do, after which Cain is left cuddling Marie or gazing soulfully at Riff. Yuki's stories revel in hints of spiritual angst and kinky tendencies, reinforcing the hero's romantic alienation. Her art is lovingly detailed but dramatically cut, with startlingly odd angles and abrupt jumps from closeups to distant shots; managing to create and sustain a giddy mood in which the absurd action can be convincing and even moving.

    Buckle Up!

    This series is not for the weak of heart! The contents of this book are very mature and physiologically thrilling... it will mess with your head and make you very angry but it is a fabulous read and one I plan to add to my collection. I would not consider it suitable for children under 16 years old unless they are mature for their age.

    Pretty Good

    I bought this manga because I was looking and this popped up. I decided to only buy the first one since they were kinda cheap. But they are really good. I wish I bought more! Except my friend pointed out it is kinda like Black Butler except there is no demon and more gore. The plot line is consitant and keeps you on your seat, wanting more. It has a nice styling and great art. I wish the made this an anime! But otherwise it is a grrat book and worth reading. I recommed this as a must have for all self-respecting manga/anime fans of all types.

    Loved it sadly

    I read the entire series and loved. But it is so sad because of Cain's past and the people he loves always die or strangers die because they're somehow are connected to Cain and its usually not his fault. I wouldnt recommend this series who don't like depressing endings.

    An Awesome Horror Mystery!!!

    This series takes place about roughly......the 1800s. It has serial killers, exorcists, killer uncles, abusive paents ect. It covers all the aspects to make a killer storyline. The main character, young Lord Cain is somewhat a fascinating mystery that is admired and feared for it is said that he is cursed. This series I am quite sure will not dissapoint with its dark mysteries that surround the main character and the even darker mysteries inside him. To get his name sake look into the story of, 'Cain and Able.'
