Review: 30 Days of Night, Vol. 1 (30 Days of Night #1)

User Review  - Raine Gregus - Goodreads

I'm going to echo what I feel like a lot of people are saying. Visually, the story was beautiful. I love the artwork. However, the plotline and tension were a little lacking. The story went by too quick and the end was written in practically two pages. It was all set up and ending. Read full review

User Review  - Kate - Goodreads

I thought this wrapped up the series nicely--still a quick read, but with a bit more meat to it than the original. Read full review
