I first discovered Victoria Frances years ago when the happy go lucky artwork of Amy Brown was beginning to simmer. I was full into my Gothic faze (I'll never wholly recover, ha ha).

Victoria's artwork is evocative and haunting. The faces of her muses are exquisitely drawn. There is pain there; beauty, resignation, beckoning.

Often, I wonder if something is not lost in the English to Spanish translation; I wish I read Spanish.

Nevertheless, these books are worth the selling price to own the dark...more
Would love to get a tattoo out of this beautiful art
This is my favourite volume of Favole, it is the one I read first and it is the one where I actually own some of the pictures.

As with "Stone Tears" there are three stories contained within "Set Me Free". Whereas the vampire Ezequiel was the link for the first volume, Favole is the common thread in this. Out of the three stories I would say that Ebony's is my favourite and has some of the more beautiful pictures, whilst the final story, Abels, has a link back to Marquise of volume one.

AMAZING drawings!!!
Beautiful short story!
I love V.F. works so so sooooooooooooo much!!!
And this one was much much darker and spooky... But I really loved it!
Especially the male vampire... :P
In the first Favole book, Marquise fell in love with a stone statue of an angel in a graveyard, with a passion that lasted beyond death. Victoria Frances draws so well that I could almost do the same with her characters. They have such beauty, intense sadness and tragedy that they look out of the page like real people. The writing is poetic, even a little confusing at times. The whole effect is a blurring together of the physical and spririt worlds, of fantasy and reality, nature and the human w...more

Lovely lovely art. The only reason why it doesn't get a 5 star rating is because the artist seems to think she's a writer too, and tries to dazzle us with some of the more laughable examples of purple prose with gothic undertones I've read in a few years. Try reading the "girl who chokes on apple and dies during her first period" bit without laughing.

I dare you.
story-wise, it's a 14 year old girl's fantasies. But you don't buy it for the story, you buy it for the art, and that's really good. Normally I wouldn't rate it, but for its countless cliches, the plot is only a fragment of an overall story I haven't read, so I'll focus on the art alone

I loved the art in this book (as I did with all her other books). It is very dark and yet very beautiful. Every drawing is breath takingly detailed and very stimulating to the senses. If you love vampires, you'll love this book. I highly recommend it!

Again, beautiful, beautiful art. I don't really understand the story, but it's not a thing that bothers me over much as the language is pretty. It's not a lack of plot, just that it's a bit muddled.
The art of Victoria's books is very good.
Unfortunely the story doesn't follow the same path and is quite basic
Nota: 10/10
