'Silly and pretty and angsty and utterly mad,' as my friend Erin would say.
Slasher murder mysteries are set to nursery rhymes, a noble collects poisons, dead people are reanimated, a child of rape is whipped into submission and rescued by his butler, a crazy doctor wants to cut his brother's eyeballs out, and an evil organization blows up a lot of buildings. It's mad Victorian mayhem for the most part, but also full of gentle subtlety, particularly in the relationship between Riff and Cain.
Rife with Kaori's usual obsessions - incest, whips, butterflies, black magic, and a rather morbid interpretation of the Tarot.
I've read all the volumes but only included the first one on my list, as each one is powerful in its own way.
