I just wish that it could have carried the characters farther and actually added something to the series. This was completely lacking in that key element.

Black is for Beginnings – Laurie Stolarz

I hope she writes more, just not in graphic novel format. Yes, we know about Stacey’s past, stolwrz know about the kidnapping incident, we know about Drea, and Jacob, and Donovan, etc. Feb 12, Journey Smith rated it it was amazing.

It took me not even a half hour to read. I’ve read plenty of them.

And a major writing issue for me was stolatz “let’s recap even though you guys should know what’s laurid on in the story” moment. Blue is for Nightmares 5 books. I have nothing against this style, but I don’t like how this was the only one that was like this.

I don’t know how this fits in with the novels although I liked this enough to be willing to read them to find outso I can’t recommend on that front, but this works just fine as a standalone, and should appeal to fans of YA romance with a touch of magic.

It’s not going to get a rating or anything since I don’t think it’s fair to rate something based on a portion of it. I absolutely love this series, and thought that a graphic novel would add another level of interest to the saga. Stacey is back at college while Jacob is at home with his parents, trying to restore his memory. Jul 05, Ofr rated it really liked it Shelves: To view it, click here.


And all she wants to do is go to Colorado and work things out with Jacob, who hasn’t been able to remember her since he lost his memory in his brush with death. I liked how this ended the series. Stacy was really upset beginjings the point she went to a coffee shop, drinking Coffee, crying, and writing in her journal. Become a LibraryThing Author.

Black is for Beginnings

Kind of a cool idea. Despite not having read the original series lback middle school, I felt like I remembered a lot of the original plot and was actually a little annoyed when there was a trip down memory lane to refresh everyone what Stacey had gone through in the first four books.

It was just a little epilogue showing Stacey and Jacob’s lives. Though there were times when I was certain that some scenes and events were already known to readers of the series and I’m sure fans will take a lot more away from this graphic novel than a first-timer like I foe.

I’m almost positive I’d like the book better. Blue, White, Silver, Red, Black. I also would have loved to see more interactions not only between Stacey and Kira but Kira and Jacob and Stacey and Jacob–not enough emotions were shown.

Stacey’s had prophetic dreams of impending danger – to herself and others – practically all of her life. To be told toward the end that Jacob had a dream about Stacey shocker the same dream Stacey had about herself would have a nice chapter in itself not just two pages. Mar 02, Kimberly Callegan rated it did not like it. It’s an odd situation coming into the series with the fifth written book but since this tells the backstory of the two principle characters it was very easy to get into and I didn’t feel like I was missing anything at all.


It seems that it is. Return to the Dark House. The previous four books were regular novels; this fifth graphic novel can also be considered a prequel as it tells the story of how the two main characters, Stacey and Jacob, met through the prophetic dreams they both share.

The visions really weren’t creepy in the slightest, and I get terrified extraordinarily easily. I just don’t read enough of them to get a good grasp on them so I’m not sure what’s normal, what isn’t, what’s good, what isn’t.

I liked getting to see more about Jacob’s past and a glimpse into his family life, but besides this and my excitement over getting to see what the characters were meant to look like, I felt like most of the book was just a recap. A romance without any of the typical teen yearning, whining and moaning, thankfully, but instead a more mature one that happens to be connected through prophetic dreams.

I’m sorry to say it was actually a little disappointing. I don’t like graphic novels at all, but I read this because it was part of another series I have read and loved, and I wanted to know what happens.

Alurie it is fiction, after all, that I couldn’t help but be carried away with the story and found it very intriguing. I wished the book could have been a little longer. Just pretend it never existed. It’s not that I don’t like comics but to me it’s lacking a lot from an actual book. Beglnnings been a fan of the candles series by Laurie Faria Stolarz for a very long time.

I read each book multiple times. I’m really upset with the author and her decision to make this a “graphic novel.
