Book Review: Taproot

Disclaimer: I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Taproot by Keezy Young is a short and sweet story about Hamal and Blue, a gardener and a ghost in love. Life for the two of them is relatively peaceful until they discover that Hamal may inadvertently be disrupting the balance between life and death, causing danger to them all.

I loved the art style of this comic. The colours were so soft and desaturated and there were so many subtle shades of green in all the plants and flowers. The art and the story were a perfect mix of cute and creepy/supernatural (my favourite!), and I really enjoyed the Reaper’s character, both in design and personality. I usually have a low tolerance for cheesy romances in general, but this gay love story was quite pleasant and beautifully told.

Rating: 4/5
