Guideau: a feral girl with long fangs and the eyes of a beast. Ashaf: a soft-spoken man with delicate features and a coffin strapped to his back. This ominous pair appears one day in a town that's in thrall to a witch, who has convinced the townsfolk she's their hero. But Ashaf and Guideau know better. They have scores to settle, and they won't hesitate to remove anyone in their way...

I've currently read up to volume five and am waiting for the next two volumes to come in. This story's strongest point is the art, which is beyond stunning.

I'm also a huge sucker for fantasy stories involving magic, particularly witches, so this was right up my alley. I admit, there is some predictable parts but they were enjoyable to read nonetheless. The pacing is on the slower side, but the characters are just so intriguing I can't even consider the possibility of dropping this. read more

So far I’ve only read the first volume and the series looks like it as potential so I’m going to keep reading and see if the score improves but so far it’s somewhat underwhelming.
