Goodreads Summary

Fans of Richelle Mead and comics will be ecstatic to hear that she now has a novel or two out in comic form! The pictures are clear, tiny details all there.  The story is followed very well-not the easiest thing to do when making a novel into a comic. 

Eugenie is the main character in this comic.  She is a strong, self-assured woman with a mission.  In the beginning of the comic she is trying with partial success to get a death spirit out of her clients' shoe.  Eventually she forcibly removes the death spirit and sends him to the Lands of Death.  She then meets up with what turns out to be a strange case.  A man seeking his sister, Jasmine, abducted by fairies over a year ago.  Eugenie takes a step back and talks the case over with her stepfather before making any decisions. 

The reader is next introduced to Tim, Eugenie's super hot roommate.  He tries to sway her to have fun and relax.  She actually takes him up on his advice and goes to a bar where she meets Kiyo-who is even better-looking than Tim!  It's not long before Kiyo and Eugenie sneak off to his apartment where fairly graphic pictures ensue.  The story ends on a surprising note, indicating to the happy reader that there will be another comic coming soon!  This book is recommended to readers who enjoy fantasy/romance/comics.
