Book Beginnings is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader that asks you to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you're reading.
Step once more into the imagination of Jun Mochizuki, creator of New York Times-bestselling PandoraHearts! A tale of vampires and curses set in a whimsical and dark steampunk Paris unfolds! On the streets, rumors abound of a clockwork grimoire said to sow curses among the vampires. Now, guided by the Book of Vanitas, the gears begun to turn, and the story of two men, Noe and Vanitas, takes shape...
Beginning: "Listen well, mon chaton. You must never let anyone steal you're "true name."
56: "Me, a chasseur? A bourreau?? That's rich!"
Comments: I talked about the first volume of The Case Study of Vanitas in January. However, I realized I never selected it as my pick for The Friday 56. Well, I'm here to correct that. So far, I'm enjoying this manga series. It's shaping up to be one of my favorite takes on vampire lore. What are you reading this week?
