    4.5/5 stars I wish that all of my favorite books had graphic novels. You must read Grave Sight Part 1 (Grave Sight Graphic Novel #1) before reading this as it is a continuing story. This book was so good. I forgot how much I loved the Harper Connelly series. Harper is now 24 years old. When she was 15 she was hit by lightning. This has given her a fantastic power. If she is near a dead body she can tell how that person died (she sees their last few seconds of life). So Harper uses this power to help 4.5/5 stars I wish that all of my favorite books had graphic novels.

I absolutely loved the mystery in #2 (that continued from #1). The conclusion will be in Grave Sight Graphic novel #3. The graphic novels Grave Sight #1-3 make up the first book (Grave Sight) in the Harper Connelly series. So #1 and 2 end with "to be continued".

    A quick read but a tad difficult if you haven't read the first installment to figure out what is going on. The artwork is fine but I found it slightly annoying some panels and or pages used only the one tone of colour. The most interesting part for me were the add ons at the back of the novel showing how a graphic novel is put together and it is mostly show not tell, as this one is. As I have always suspected writing a graphic novel is comparable to writing a film script.

    These are like comics with training wheels for me. Since I've read the books (fairly recently) it was easy for me to follow even the action scenes, especially once I got used to the piercing in Harper's lip. And I really liked the end matter for the hints on how books become comics.

Opening Sentence: “Get in the car.” The Review: In the second installment of Grave Sight, we get a more in depth look into the main characters. While being forced to stay in the little town of Sarne, Harper Connelly and Tolliver Lang continue to search for answers in the murder of Teenie and now her mother. The townsfolk are uncomfortable having Harper as their guest and start to react more violently towards her and her stepbrother. Even to the point of having one of them falsely arrested. The idea that the townsfolk fear Harper’s gift is not unusual. As people, we tend to fear that which we do not understand. With no way to remain separated from the instigators, can Harper remain safe from the unmitigated hatred that the people have for her while still finding the answers that she seeks? The playfulness between siblings is more evident in this book. They both are very comfortable with one another and tease each other about their respective “interests”. For example, Hollis, a deputy, has made his interest in Harper known almost from the beginning. Both Harper and Tolliver are portrayed as open with their affections. Though, to be honest, how else are they going to get any with as much as they travel? The artwork helps reflect each characters internal emotions. I find it interesting that everyone seems very animated except Hollis. I believe that this is deliberate. For all of his sharing his history, he remains aloof from Harper. The facial expressions help further enforce the differences in the townsfolk and their newest guests. This is one of the things that comes across as exceptional in the graphic novel version: the use of art to drive the story as opposed to the writing. I look forward to the final chapter in this exciting new graphic novel series. FTC Advisory: Dynamite Entertainment graciously provided me with a copy of Grave Sight: Book 2. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review. The only payment I’ve received are in hugs and kisses from my little boys.

    More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog http://surrealtalvi.wordpress.com/ I had a chance to read both part 1 and part 2 at the same time. Although I've never read Harris' books and only saw a couple of episodes of True Blood, I still greatly enjoyed this adaptation of the novel. My one gripe, however, is that it is more like 1 issue of a comic series - very short and a 15 minute read at most. I think all 3 books in the series as one graphic novel would have been preferable.

My one gripe, however, is that it is more like 1 issue of a comic series - very short and a 15 minute read at most. I think all 3 books in the series as one graphic novel would have been preferable. The story follows Harper Connelly, a girl hit by lightning when she was young and given an extraordinary power to read the moment of death of other characters. She uses this ability to earn a living - all the while guarded by her stepbrother Tolliver and haunted by the death she wasn't able to prevent or 'see' - that of her sister. Harper is in a small town collecting a service that will end up snowballing on both her and Tolliver. In between, alliances with locals will be formed, enemies gained, and murders increasing. The drawing style is realistic and not cartoony or stylized - a boon for this type of story. the story was easy to follow as a result and if there was something lost from translation of novel to the graphic novel, I didn't miss it. The actual story is 45 or so pages. Then there are 20 pages of 'bonus material' which is storyboards and an ad for another book. I rated this one less star for all the filler and shortness of the story.

    I read this series a while ago so I don't remember a lot of the details (who the killers were, etc) but it reminded me of what a great mystery writer Charlaine Harris is. I like a story where I cannot guess the ending or "whodunnit" easily and this author always delivers. With this graphic novel, she reveals just enough detail to give you an inkling of the true suspect but not enough for you to be sure. I'm looking forward to the third and final part in April!

    Harper and Tolliver are still not allowed to leave town. And, more people doubt Harper now, but her ability is starting to be shown as more and more of an obvious gift. They find out (from Dell's) sister that Teenie was expecting a child, and had not told anyone. Dell had told his sister, but no one else. Harper is sure that someone else knows that, and that it played a part in Teenie's murder. And, we are left with a few scenes of things starting to get hot and steamy between Harper and Hollis Harper and Tolliver are still not allowed to leave town.

    I like the idea of this graphic novel(GN) more than I like the actual execution of it. I'm from Arkansas so I like that the GN is set in different towns in the state. It was a short and quick read. I also haven't read the first book. Maybe I would like it more if I had read the first installment.

    I'm rarely a fan of graphic novel interpretations of books that I like, but this run has hit the spot. I think it gives me the parts of the story that I enjoy enough to re-read, along with an enjoyable "graphic" twist. I really wish I could buy the graphic version of the book as a whole, but collecting the pieces hasn't been too much of a pain.

    The next instalment in the graphic novel series was just as good as the first book, the art work is brilliant to look at and it really captures the story, which for me, as a big fan of the series is great to see.

    goes along well with the book, but I think if you hadn't already read the book too much would be lost.

    They've actually a great job translating the book into graphic novel form. I'm still not crazy about the artwork, coloring, etc but the story adaptation is well done.

    The artwork is a little weird. The story is what I remember. Kinda makes me want to try the rest of the series.
