This was pretty cool. Really the art saved it though. The story was interesting if a little sparse. The "surprise" ending was surprising enough, although I can't say that it didn't strike me as one of the possibilities. I wouldn't go out looking to buy these but definitely worth a read for free (from the library).

I enjoyed the art and the story well enough - should definitely appeal to goth types.

So far this has been my favorite of the series. I found the take on the story of Madame LaLaurie and the Old Ursuline Convent quite interesting if a bit incomplete feeling. A few more direct answers would have been appreciated, but it doesn't really take away from the overall effect of the story to leave so much implied and suggested instead of spelled out completely. The art was the most consistent so far and was vaguely reminiscent of Edward Goery, it felt like an homage to his work.

Delphine Lalaurie was a slave owner who tortured and murdered her slaves in her house at 1140 Rue Royale. Many years later, when new owners, elderly Victoria and her niece Rebecca, move into the house, the trapped spirits awaken and seek revenge.Rebecca gradually learns about the house's gruesome history and sets out to help the spirits rest in peace at last.I loved the illustrations, but found the storyline a bit hard to follow.

I have the first two volumes of Nightmares & Fairytales, and was anxiously waiting for the release of Volume 3. It was well worth the wait. It's the type of book you can't wait to read, but after you do it leaves you deep in thought and feeling like the whole world should be affected by this book.
