Overview

“I cannot die. But I cannot live. Let me go.
Remove this curse of eternal life!”

Handsome, wealthy, respected, Giancarlo has lived for hundreds of years, surrounded by splendor, shrouded in darkness, and enslaved by the insatiable hunger lurking inside him. In the glittering ballrooms where the privileged gather, he moves with cool elegance. But in the desolate alleys where the undead feed, he preys with murderous intent. Immortality is his, but love never will be–only an eternity of loneliness, filled with the blood of innocent victims.

But Jenny won’t be one of them. Something about this beautiful young woman stirs feelings in Giancarlo that he hasn’t known for centuries. For her, he will defy his dark brethren and fight to be mortal again. But he is a marked man. Ghoulish murders plaguing the city have made him the target of a relentless homicide cop. And a far more dangerous enemy–one of unspeakable brutality and bloodlust–hovers even closer . . . determined to annihilate Giancarlo and his last chance for salvation.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up

Hart fuses the two genres of horror and crime noir in this original English-language manga. Giancarlo, an attractive, wealthy, and respected member of high society, is hiding a dark secret. Dinnertime does not take him to expensive restaurants or catered parties, but to dark areas of the city where prostitutes walk the streets, to satisfy his hunger for blood. When he rescues Jenny from a mugger, there is an instant attraction, and he fights his urge to feed. As their relationship develops, so does Giancarlo's desire to leave his dark world and become mortal again. With a relentless cop closing in on him for the slayings of prostitutes, and the brotherhood of darkness seeking to destroy him and other mortals, there is plenty of potential for an intense, fast-paced story. This is Hart's first manga effort, and while it shows promise for future stories, it falls short in providing enough suspense. Anzu's black-and-white illustrations are inconsistent in quality. Some fabulously portray the grittiness of the streets and succeed in setting atmosphere, but others lack depth. Some panels, especially the fight scenes, tend to be overdrawn, making them difficult to interpret. Despite its flaws, however, The Reformed will be an easy sell to teens who are attracted to vampire stories, and it may even leave them thirsty for a sequel.-Lara McAllister, Halifax Public Libraries, Nova Scotia

    this is a well thought idea and the story line is good, but it's really fast paced. The two characters are so suddenly in love but it's a good vamp manga
