"Set in early nineteenth-century Britain, Bloodlust & Bonnets follows Lucy, an unworldly debutante who desires a life of passion and intrigue--qualities which earn her the attention of Lady Violet Travesty, the leader of a local vampire cult. But before Lucy can embark on her new life of vampiric debauchery, she finds herself unexpectedly thrown together with the flamboyant poet Lord Byron ("from books!") and a mysterious bounty-hunter named Sham. The unlikely trio lie, flirt, fight, and manipulate each other as they make their way across Britain, disrupting society balls, slaying vampires, and making every effort not to betray their feelings to each other as their personal and romantic lives become increasingly entangled"--Amazon.… (más)

Bloodlust & Bonnets follows Lucy who has been offered the opportunity to become a vampire by Lady Travesty after she kills a few men. However, she is “rescued” by Lord Byron, a poet, who thought she was being attacked by the vampire. They then begin their trek to find Lady Travesty, meeting new friends and foes along the way.

There are many parts throughout the graphic novel that are funny and had me laughing out loud. However, there were some things that were meant to be sarcastic that just didn’t do it for me. For example, Byron, who was supposed to be a sarcastic representation of a toxic masculinity. While I do realize this, I couldn’t help but be constantly annoyed whenever he came up (which was a lot). As a representation, though, he was very well done and thought out.

While the story was entertaining, I do think it was a little all over the place. The characters bounce from one place to another and although they do have a goal in mind, it seems to get lost by the time they’re halfway to whatever that goal may be.

I did enjoy the queer relationship. I thought it was pretty representative of how wlw act in real life LOL. ( )

A sort of strangely-and-randomly bloodthirsty gal, Lucy, teams up with a bounty hunter and, um, Lord Byron to hunt down a vampire lady, but they all have different motives for doing so. The schemes are all hairbrained, the plot twist are excellently twisty and convoluted, and the banter is fantastically witty. I. LOVED. It. Exactly what I was hoping for from the author of My Life as a Background Slytherin. ( )

Bloodlust and Bonnets by Emily McGovern is a graphic novel that caught my attention with its blurb (see below). It looked like a funny romp and the fact that the author had previous written a webcomic called "My Life As A Background Slytherin" (which I had come across before) was a point in its favour.

In Bloodlust and Bonnets we meet Lucy, who doesn't have much interest in being an ordinary proper Lady type person and who ends up having a bunch of dramatic adventures with Lord Byron (who's a bit useless without realising it) and Sham, who is the most interesting character in the book. The characters encounter rather a lot of violence and vampires and magic. The book has a absurd/silly fun sort of tone and lot of gallivanting around.

It was a fun read, but I felt like it lasted a bit too long. I ended up putting it down for a while when I was about half way through and taking longer than I'd like to come back to it. The issue, I think, was that it maintained the same kind of silly tone throughout and, while there was some plot and intrigue, it mostly moved along near the start and towards the end. The middle was a lot of the same sort of thing, which wasn't bad per se, just samey. Others may find that's exactly what they're looking for, but it didn't really work for me.

3.5 / 5 stars

A graphic novel about a young woman in the early 19th century who has adventures with Lord Byron and a bevy of other folks slaying vampires and whatnot. It's a lot of silliness really, and it's the kind of silliness I'm generally here for, but the whole thing just didn't quite hang together for me. ( )
