Title: God Save the Queen.
Author: Mike Carey.
Artist: John Bolton.
Genre: Fiction, graphic novel, fantasy, romance, drugs.
Publication Date: June, 2007.
Summary: Bolton's lush palette perfectly captures both the lurid underbelly of modern London and the haunting elegance of Faerie in a dark, compelling tale of decadence and desire. Set in both North London and the Faerie kingdom, the book tells the story of a rebellious teenager who falls in with a group of slacker faeries. She discovers that for faeries, the ultimate rush is Red Horse, a drug made from heroin and human blood. It's a dangerous high, and when she gets hooked she's drawn into a civil war that becomes a struggle to the death between Queen Titania and her predecessor, Queen Mab.
My rating: 8/10.
♥ Have you observed, my honey dove, my Auberon, the paradox on which love is founded? We burn for that which we love. For its image. Its essence. And then we make it over into our own.
♥ If someone is always there, you sort of get to think that you can go away for as long as you like. And come back. And go away. And come back. And they’ll always be where you left them last. Like the toys you turn up under sofa cushions. Or the good bits in a book you read when you were five.
