challenging dark emotional mysterious reflective sad tense medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year. Carmilla is one of my favorite books so I love a good Carmilla adaptation! I loved this graphic novel it modernized the story, and gave it a really interesting spin while also still being recognizable as Carmilla.
