[Graphic Novel Review] Five Ghosts Vol. 2: Lost Coastlines by Frank J. Barbiere, Chris Mooneyham

Graphic Novel Review of Five Ghosts Vol. 2: Lost Coastlines by Frank J. Barbiere, Chris Mooneyham

Immediately after reading Vol. 1: The Haunting of Fabian Gray, I had to dive right into Volume Two!

Five Ghosts, Vol. 2: Lost Coastlines
by Frank J. Barbiere, Illustrated by Chris Mooneyham


Book Synopsis: 
In 'Lost Coastlines', Fabian joins his old flame Jezebel on a trip across the sea to Japan and the mythical Island of Dreams. On their perilous journey they'll encounter pirates and a dark shadow from Fabian's past.



My thoughts:
I enjoyed this volume a lot! I found it far less confusing than the first and less rushed. Of course, this volume was much longer than the first, so we were able to get more content as well. 

I really enjoyed learning about Fabian's past in this volume and how he and his sister had trained together once long ago. I also enjoyed that we were introduced to a new character named Jezebel, who also has dreamstone embedded in her face and also has a "ghost." 

Again, I thought that the artwork and coloring was absolutely stunning. There were many pages where the artwork guided the story, which I always love.

And touches like this... they're just perfect:

And how adorable is this?!

My favorite line: 
We've all made deals with the devil. It's where we go from there that counts. 


My final thoughts:
Five stars! I couldn't put this one down! I cannot wait to jump into Volume 3.

  1. I just checked out two graphic novels from the library, too! I'm don't why I haven't done it sooner. Glad you enjoyed this one so much. I hope I have a similar experience, too! Crossing fingers...
