The young man Huey took over the old mansion of his deceased bibliomanic grand father as well as the book collection that's stored in there. But there was a condition: he also had to inherit the "Bibliotheca."

When he inspects the mansion, Huey discovers a cellar filled with piled up books. In the midst of them he comes across a black-dressed girl who's silently reading a book. She's called Darian and has a big lock hanging in front of her. She herself is the entrance to the "Bibliotheca of Dantalian" which contains the prohibited "Phantom Books."

I bought this Manga due to its nice cover and yet i don't regret it.
A bit confusing i think but i got used to it while reading the first chapter.

Atmosphere of this manga? it feels a little like an drawn Stephen King book. For me, tho i am not the biggest Stephen King reader, the 2 books i read felt kind of same to this manga.

The Characters are quite interesting and got an humorous attitude even tho i got the feeling they are serious about what they want to do.

I love the Art, i don't know how to explain it but read more

Story: 8: It take's place in England after WW1, and as such in the description with Huey. I found the story rather interesting as it takes place after the first World War, and the actual horror in this series is not the war, but the mystic books. And people like Jack the Ripper using one of these said books, and pilot's such as Huey. Each volume of the manga is usually about a new phantom book, but the story continues to each volume as well.

Art: 8: Goes very well with the gothic and horror style of this manga. The characters are well drawn and read more
