Quick impressions: Overall, I really enjoyed this one, and I will recommend it to anyone who listens. This is a solid selection for libraries with graphic novel collections. I'd buy it for our library. It is also one I would be happy to have in my personal collection.

Not a fan of the cover even though that's what got me attracted to it in the first place. I think the illustrations inside were way better, I loved them, especially the background graphics and the attention to details, the colour palette is just amazing. I really liked how the two stories, even though told together, were easily separable because of the majorly different illustrations and panel designs.

Even though it's vol 6 of the Lady Mechanica series (such a cheesy title, lol!), it's a perfect standalone too, except for the teaser at the end for the next volume, I'll be looking forward to it for sure. The story itself was great too, I really liked how it shows a different - sad, vulnerable, and lovable - side to the creatures, otherwise deemed full of viciousness. This story is more than just about blood, vampires, gods, and mythical creatures. I think there's was a basic lesson there too, that there's always a reason, circumstances, and hard choices that make people turn to the "dark side".

All in all, I loved it. Recommended.

I received an eARC of this Graphic novel via Netgalley. All opinions are mine. Pub Date: 31 Oct 2020.

Une nouvelle affaire, une nouvelle enquête et des monstres toujours plus redoutables.
La Lady a fort à faire en Espagne. Une enquête difficile qui va la mener vers une histoire qui remonte à plusieurs siècles.
L’histoire est assez prenant et j’ai aimé la lire tranquillement. Il y a quelques résonances entre Anne Rice et predators, le tout à la sauce steampunk.
Mechanika rest égale à elle-même. En quête de vérité et de justice pour tous. Elle protège les plus faible avec équité.
