Graphic Novel Review: Nightmare in Savannah by Lela Gwen


Alexa moves to Savannah to get away from her past. Too bad her past is a Google search away and her parent’s criminal acts quickly make her an outcast. Good thing Fae, Chloe, & Skye aren’t high on the social ladder and give Alexa a group to feel comfortable in. But after a long night of debauchery they transform into the town’s worst nightmare; Fairies.


I’m not sure what I was expecting but it wasn’t what I got. I thought the group of main characters were going to be faerie hunters but it was actually the opposite. It’s my own fault for not reading the synopsis properly before downloading. I still thought it was decent though. 

My main issue with Nightmare on Savannah was the pacing. It was a bit all over the place. There wasn’t any build-up and having them be the changelings happened out of nowhere. No preamble or hinting just straight up ‘they spent a night around a fire and now they’re fae’.

I loved the art style and the monochromatic colouring. The purple hues gave Nightmare in Savannah a real spooky vibe. Every page had so much movement it was like I was watching the story rather than reading it.

Honestly, I was quite disappointed with the story. The illustrations were beautiful though which is why I am giving Nightmare in Savannah three stars.

Rating: 3 out of 5.
