My Thoughts


Review covers 41 chapters 

Who are monsters? Or better question yet, where do monsters live? Under our beds? in the dark closets? Or maybe they live in us? Ready to come out and consume everything in their path!

Are you fan of psychological horror? If not, you’re missing out a lot! I remember a year or two ago I was thinking of getting into a new genre, and this is my attempt to slowly switch from my romance addiction. Does it work? Kind of, I have a number of psychological manga for you, but I’m waiting for them to finish so I can write a review.

Anyway, this story was both terrifying and intriguing. Why can’t I choose one? The answer is quite easy. the art was fantastic, all that blood and detail and while the idea might have not been too unique, the story telling and character development was something truly outstanding! The story is focused on human nature, on its twisted ways and on monsters that live amongst us.

There’s only one question you should be asking yourself throughout reading the story! What would I have done in this situation? An while it is easy to judge sitting on your couch, it is a totally different story being shut on a sinking ship with a monster. Are you ready to challenge yourself? To look at humanity and be a judge of good and evil? If yes, I won’t hold you anymore, as you need to read it yourself to know if you like it or not! Enjoy it and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos! Don’t miss your next favourite book or manga! Happy reading!
