Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Just a stone's throw from London lies the manor house of the illustrious Phantomhive earldom, its master one Ciel Phantomhive. Earl Phantomhive is a giant in the world of commerce, Queen Victoria's faithful servant . . . and a slip of a twelve-year old boy. Fortunately, his loyal butler, Sebastian, is ever at his side, ready to carry out the young master's wishes. And whether Sebastian is called to save a dinner party gone awry or probe the dark secrets of London's underbelly, there is practically nothing Sebastian cannot do. In fact, one might even say Sebastian is too good to be true . . . or at least, he is too good to be human . . .

This series is far better in the manga than in the anime. It really was interesting to me, and I've always been a sucker for books taking place in the 1800's, as well as dark themes with loads of drama. In my mind this was a 5/5, but I decided against giving it so a high a rating because of one main thing. I feel as if I've read this before. It wasn't as original as other manga, and it was lacking in anything that really made me jump up with excitement. The character development is very good, however, which earned it such a high score from me. It's worth reading for certain.
