Sons of the Devil Volume One

January 29, 2018

The premise of this graphic novel had me from the beginning. Last year I read The Girls by Emma Cline (review herewhich I thoroughly enjoyed. In fact I read quite a few novels with commune/cult elements and that was what really excited me about this graphic novel. It's described as True Detective meets Orphan Black and also Helter Skelter, um yes pls. 

However, all though this was an incredibly promising start to a series it seemed rushed. Or at least the latter half of the story was. All of a sudden these multiple elements collided together and it was a little much, to the point where I couldn't focus on the story. So there is definitely a devil worship thing going on but it isn't fully explained. I've been left with a lot of questions but I'm hoping it'll be explained in the next volume. 

Also, two different coloured eyes? V.E Schwab that you?

      I think I’m a bit like that. There are some that I read that I love instantly, others take me a little bit longer to get into.

      If you haven’t already give I Hate Fairyland a try! It’s incredible.

    I got the V.E. Schwab joke! That’s so satisfying – to get a literary joke. 🙂
