This is the first volume of a story for all paranormal fans who always enjoy a new vampire tale.
Of course, we also feel there's more about her excessive feelings than scorn. And Drake seems to have the same opinion since he uses all his charm to convince her that he is much more interesting than she seems to think. But then, the blond and elegant Lord Faureston enters the game for Miss Lecombe attentions.
There's no secret about Faureston's nature. Quite quickly we know what he is, but his past or even his true relationship with another attractive woman remains more or less clouded. He is undoubtedly an intriguing character, even if he is cruel and ruthless.
I really enjoyed the drawings and the color palette used in this volume. They have many interesting details and the authors manage to create a very misty and sometimes creepy scenes, especially those with Lord Faureston. Nonetheless, I have some difficulties with the leading man, Robert Drake (character inspired by the 19th century explorer Richard Francis Burton). He immediately made me think of Gengis Khan with those eyebrows and heavy mustache. A big no-no for me.
D - Lord Faureston was a nice read but not as exciting as I wished it would be.
