Silent and merciless, a creature of darkness has come to prey on an island village. Babies vanish, mothers are murdered, and the threat of evil grows with each night. The village becomes a battleground as the onrush of the twentieth century clashes with tradition--and the restless spirits of the island’s mythical past...
Set in late colonial Indonesia, Garlands of Moonlight relates a Malay vampire legend in graphic novel format. Printed in a black and silver duotone, the book captures the quaint feel of turn-of-the-century daguerreotype photographs. Illustrated by Indonesian artist Rizky Wasisto Edi; winner of a 2002 Xeric award.
