Summary

Summary

The past holds everyone in its thrall, and Oz, Alice, Raven, Break, and their acquaintances are no exception, especially as recollections of the tragedy of Sablier elude even those who were present. Indeed, with his own body playing host to Jack Vessalius, the hero of Sablier, the likelihood of Oz escaping the past seems nigh impossible. But given a renewed lease on life by Elliot Nightray - the legitimate heir to the Nightray dukedom, of all people - Oz is eager to keep moving forward by learning all that he can about the events that came to pass all those years ago. To this end, he and his friends seek an audience with another of the four great dukes - Duke Rufus Barma. But it is not a glimpse into a hundred-year-old disaster that is revealed to them in the Duke's presence, but rather one into Break's lamentable, shockingly unforgettable past...

Publisher's Weekly Review

A sharp eye can find many literary references in this exciting fantasy manga. Oz, the main character, is turning 15 and is all set to be part of a ceremony, only to be dragged into a hellish place called the Abyss, for reasons he doesn't know. Previously, he was a rambunctious rich boy who didn't treat his servants well, but the Abyss is supposed to only take the worst of the worst. In this dark and disturbing world he meets a girl named Alice, whom he may or may not be able to trust, but who might be the only way out. The title clearly references Pandora from Greek mythology, while names, images, and characters play up their resemblances to the works of L. Frank Baum and Lewis Carroll (there are also allusions to Dante and Japanese mythology). Mochizuki's work, along with being creepy and hard to put down, slips in plenty of education along with his ornate, Goth art. With its mystery, symbolism and action-packed storyline, Oz's story will catch the attention of diverse readers. (Dec.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
