Book Review: Pandora Hearts Volume 15

As I have said in the previous post, I recently got three books from Barnes & Nobles. So far, one of those titles have been covering and only two remain. Today, I will be reviewing another one of those titles, which is called Pandora Hearts Volume 15 by Jun Mochizuki.

As I have given a series synopsis in an earlier post, I will not go over it again.

With the events of Yura's mansion drawing to close, people are trying to get back their peaceful days, while others are mourning for those that have died.

However, there is little time to recover, as a group of Pandora's staff is killed.

I liked this book. It was by no means as action-packed as the last volume was, but there was still enough to hold my attention. I liked how Elliot, realizing everything he has done, decided to his own life and reject Humpty Dumpty. Now, willingly throwing away one's life is usually a cowardly act, but here I thought that he was brave and compassionate. Vincent gave him a choice of who would kill him, as he would have died anyway, but instead choosing between Vincent or of leaving Oz with the burden taking another life, though it was actually Jack who dealt the fatal blow, he decided to formally to end things himself. The funny thing though is that he said that he hated the idea of self-sacrifice, when we first got to know him. I guess he really has made a 180 during the course of the events that transpired at Yura's mansion. It was also nice that the guess I made in the review of the previous volume was confirmed. What has me most interested though is why Vincent wants Leo to be the new Glen. He says that he wants his existence erased, in order to allow Gil to live a happy life, but I do not really think that would make Gilbert happy. It might be one less thorn in Gilbert's side, but I do not really know what Gilbert thinks of Vincent. I want to think that there has to be something more, especially since he is only dating Ada, Oz's sister, to acquire access to more doorways to the Abyss. The fact that things are confirmed and that Elliot sacrificed him, as well as the fact the things make me want to find more about what is going on, made this a pretty nice volume.

Although I liked the book, there are certainly some issues. However, as I did not notice anything terribly wrong, I will say that there is nothing worth mentioning.

Seeing as things were quite interesting, even without a ton of action, this was definitely worth reading. I recommend this to fans of action and mystery, as well as fans of Pandora Hearts. As for everyone else, this is worth giving a shot.
