Can the Kirin, a mythical creature of good fortune, fulfil one mans ambition of becoming President of the United States? Mayhem ensues when Leon's younger brother, Christopher, spends a day with Count D. True horror occurs when Count D comes face to face with Leon's apartment.


Pet Shop of Horror revolves around a magical pet shop in Chinatown that just happens to sell pet’s that aren’t like your everyday pet. Each volume is divided into a chapters and each chapter tells a single story of an encounter with this pet shop. Some end up happy while others not so much. 

In the 5th installment we are given a little more into the life of Count D as well as a insight into Detective Leon. The stories involve a congressman intent on solidifying his seat as future president. A runaway royal cat with ties to the future leader of a country. A dancer who is struggling with the fact that the man she loves has chosen another changing her future forever. Leon also brings his younger brother to the count to watch him as he has become his guardian. I like the new twist of Chris who’s joined the counts world. 

I’m hooked on Pet Shop of Horrors it’s written as a series of short stories which have a larger story surrounding them. It’s this creepy concept of a pet shop that happens to not sell traditional pets. Each of the pets really fits into the owner life giving them exactly what they needed at that point in their life and some may not end happy ever after. I have to admit I enjoyed the concept it’s unique and fascinating I had a hard time putting it down because I wanted to know what would happen next. I’m anxious to read the next book so we can learn more about the pet shop but to see what comes out it’s door next. While it may not be a super popular one it’s worth checking out the chapters are perfect for a quick little way to break up the day or just binge reading.
