    After the death of most of her relatives, Kim inherits an old family house in the middle of nowhere. Along with the house, she inherits all of the dark memories and secrets scratched into its walls as well. Haunted by monsters both real and imaginary, Kim faces the demons of the past in search of reconciliation and self-acceptance. This was a unique southern gothic graphic novel that feels like a haunting picture book with twisted puzzles scattered all over the pages with notes and engravings wr After the death of most of her relatives, Kim inherits an old family house in the middle of nowhere.

This was a unique southern gothic graphic novel that feels like a haunting picture book with twisted puzzles scattered all over the pages with notes and engravings written in the background. It's written entirely from the inner dialogue of the protagonist which further adds to the sense of solving a mystery skewed by the memories of someone dealing with family trauma. The lack of a traditional story and character interactions made it difficult for me to feel emotionally invested in the plot, but I appreciated the uniqueness of it overall.

    Kim inherits a house in rural Sweden and goes to visit. The fridge has been cleaned, but the whole house is full of post-its, reminders, and notes about the crows. I liked this one a lot. It’s more a picture book for adults than a typical comic. First person narrator, and we mainly have the internal dialogue, and the notes left by previous inhabitants of the house. Noises from the woods. Mist. Gloomy, grey weather. Fittingly, the illustrations are done in water colours and are so beautiful in an Kim inherits a house in rural Sweden and goes to visit.

Fittingly, the illustrations are done in water colours and are so beautiful in an eery november kind of way. This is more about making peache than about investigating mysteries, so there is no real solution. While this story is closed in itself, there is an option of coming back and further exploring. Creepy, melancholic, [insert crow noises here]. Would recommend. Would read more by the people who did this. The arc was provided by the publisher.

    This book was very unique, in both it’s setting, but in its style as well. It was almost like a picture book instead of a graphic novel. The feel of it was very atmospheric, like it felt creepy as I read it. While the book takes place in Sweden, it's a relatable story: not feeling wanted because of who/what you are/aren’t and how that trauma manifests itself– in this case through the symbols of the crows.

    It's a weirdly wonderful creation. It's not a comic book but it's not a picture book either! The story is deep and dark (actually too dark). Each artwork in this book is awesome! It's a visual treat. It's a weirdly wonderful creation. It's not a comic book but it's not a picture book either! The story is deep and dark (actually too dark). Each artwork in this book is awesome!

    This was enjoyable and dark and thought provoking. I'm looking forward to Fager's novels being translated into English. Or maybe i should just learn swedish as Kim's grandparents complain about. There's much relatable in this book. The art is gorgeous. This was enjoyable and dark and thought provoking. I'm looking forward to Fager's novels being translated into English.
