 *A Thank you to Edelweiss+ for allowing met to read this. Here is my honest and unbiased review*


 Hello Fellow Readers,

I knew I would really like this. A graphic novel with interesting and captivating artwork? Check. Heavily influenced by music? Check. Mild horror elements? Check. These things made Blue in Gree (named after the Miles Davis song) such a fantastic read. In this novel we meet Erik a music teacher at a college where life seems to just be middling by. Suddenly he is called back to his childhood home by his sister to attend his mother's funeral.

This is when the story picks up as we are introduced to a complicated mother-son relationship, a mysterious man, and a mystery that captures Erik's attention. This novel really had me hooked, on one hand we are dealing with a man who is struggling to understand his life and lack of musical success. On the other we have forces tat work that seem inescapable. 

While it did take me a while to get used to the art style by the end of the book I was enraptured and wished I had some of the artwork to hang on my walls. The reasons this doesn't get perfect makes is because I felt like it needed more the story, at the end I was left with more questions then answers.

Overall, if your a fan of music and a great story brought to life by lovely artwork this is for you
