"The story moves, and I really like that about this book .. there isn’t any wasted space, every sentence, page, and graphic is telling the story at breakneck speed ...  It is one of those books that you don’t want to put down, and I didn’t!" - Andretta for  Fang-Freakin-Tastic Reviews

"I would call this a combination of Chuck Palahniuk and Quention Tarantino, with a dash of True Blood. I really liked the concept and the world, as well as the general premise ... I am definitely interested in reading more in the series.

"All done in black and white save for the liberal splashes of red, the art works well with the night time setting and the atmosphere of film noir that permeates the detectives' business ...
The story itself is nicely built as the book progresses and had me guessing as I went along ... The ending is also terrific and I'll say no more than that. :) "  - Michael Cairns, Author

"There are many twists and turns as more characters are brought into the story ... It had me turning pages to find out what happened next ... The use of the artwork to compliment the prose, where it was placed throughout the story, the content of each panel, and the use of only grayscale and red was excellent.  " - Sharon Stogner, ismellsheep.com

" The Spirit and the Shadow weaves a very clever vision which seems to have been conceived as a television series for Netflix or HBO ...  It has a well-developed and involved mythology which tows the line of the usual vampire tropes while tweaking the genre in some very original ways" 

- J. David Core, Author
