    Pornsak Pichetshote's storytelling continues to be lots of fun. I loved the mythology he has added to this series about the difference between Western Ghosts and Thai Ghosts. Which proves to be somewhat of an important factor in this story. Read Full Review

    This is a slower-burn story than most of the Sandman Universe books, investing in its characters and slowly peeling back the secrets of its world.

The whole plot of ghosts, monsters and amulets is right up my street and I will sing this series' praises from the rooftops, particularly if the quality remains this high. Read Full Review
