Okay I actually read the whole series of The Earl and The Fairy. I liked it a lot I thought that the story line was strong and easy to follow, the plot was captivating and attention grabbing without being too in your face, it’s just the right amount of action, drama, adventure and stubborn romance that it all just makes sense. The characters in this series were awesome my favorite characters are Nico and Raven! Oh Nico I adore him! Yes he’s the cat but he doesn’t like to addressed as such. He’s a talking, walking, tea drinking cat! What’s not to love? Not to mention he wears a bow-tie! His personality is the best! I find it so sweet how he’s always looking out for Lydia making sure she’s okay and not in any danger. Even if she is he always tries to help and doesn’t flee when things get tough. Raven! I adore him too he doesn’t talk much he prefers action to words but when he does everybody listens. He’s quiet, thoughtful and can kick butt like nobody’s business. He’s really loyal and a good friend to Edgar. The manga itself is awesome though and something I would definitely recommend reading if you like fairy’s, magic, deception to spice things up, and one unwilling yet willing heroine. One thing I loved the most about his manga series was Edgar’s and Lydia’s relationship the hot and cold thing they have going on is something to see. It’s funny to watch Lydia get all flustered and not know what to do when it comes to Edgar and his personality and tricks. Okay I’m going to stop now before I end up spoiling something because this manga is so good.It’s also interesting to see hoe Edgar deals with his feelings about Lydia. Interested yet? Yes? Awesome! No? Well that’s okay.
