Review: I've read the first two books in the Blue is for Nightmares series and they kind of helped me to understand Black is for Beginnings. I wasn't really sure where this book stood in the scheme of things to do with the novels. I think that if you want to read the books but don't want spoilers then you should wait until you've read the books. Basically, Black is for Beginnings tells you the story of what happens in the four novels. I wasn't bothered by this because I already knew what happened in the other books.
The illustrations were really good. I liked how the people were drawn. It was quite unique. Another thing I liked about the illustrations was that some of them were really really funny. They bring the text to life.
I'm not sure if this is a series or if this was just a one off but I'm hoping there'll be a sequel because there were a couple of unanswered questions hanging in the air.
There's not much more that I can say about Black is for Beginnings other than it is a nice light read that would be good to read while sitting down for a few minutes and just relaxing.
