Four Stars.


Three fetish models get tired of sitting by on the sidelines once they realize that there are being on this Earth that are a present and very real danger. These creatures feed on humans' memories, and the girls start the fight to take back and protect what's rightfully ours.

I have to say that I really loved the artwork for this book. It was dark and creepy, but also really detailed. I also really liked the way each of the three models were drawn, they look good while kicking some ass. The panel arrangement/plot formatting was easy to follow, and I didn't struggle with where to read next.

The plot itself was pretty good too. It's creepy to me that something can feed on memories. Could you imagine? *shudders* I certainly don't want to even imagine it. I like that three bored models get the chance to do something worthwhile and go on an adventure to shake things up.

One thing that I didn't like, and this is only in regards to the format I was given, is the huge watermarks on the middle of the page. I understand this is to thwart pirates and screenshots and what not, but it made some of the artwork hard to see, and got really annoying, really fast.

This was my first introduction to this set of characters, but I'd definitely come back for more. Fans of urban fantasy and horror, I'm looking at you. Thanks to Netgalley and IDW Publishing for my copy in exchange for my honest review.


  1. This sounds so interesting, I really want a copy. Looking at the cover I can't help but to think of who I'd cast as the models if it was turned into a live action movie.

    1. Kym. So much Kym. And Carissa. And Diva. Those are my three.

  2. Ooh, that sounds like a really interesting read. I love the cover art. Although that watermark on your copy sounds majorly annoying.

    1. It really was, but the art was sooo pretty!
