"Just a stone's throw from London lies the manor house of the illustrious Phantomhive earldom and its master, one Ciel Phantomhive. Earl Phantomhive is a giant in the world of commerce, Queen Victoria's faithful servant ... and a slip of a twelve-year-old boy. Fortunately, his loyal butler, Sebastian, is ever at his side, ready to carry out the young master's wishes. And whether Sebastian is called to save a dinner party gone awry or probe the dark secrets of London's underbelly, there apparently is nothing Sebastian cannot do. In fact, one might even say Sebastian is too good to be true .. or at least, too good to be human ..."--p. [4] of cover.

Don't be fooled by the early beginnings of the first volume in comparison to latter volumes (though, the beginnings are well done). Black Butler is an increasingly gorgeous dark action fantasy grounded well in the Victorian England and Industrial Revolution Eras. Refined. Comedic. Morally gray and conflicting. There is a contract with a demon, after all.
Readers who continue to read will be rewarded with thrilling story arcs, increasingly maturing artwork, and pieces of the series's great mystery: the very events that catapulted protagonists Ciel and Sebastian to their contract and goals today.

Fantastic series- beautiful artwork and great characters, great for anyone who doesn't mind gore and dark themes. The anime is fantastic too :)

One of my favorite series. If you are in to mystery and supernatural this is a must read!!

The wonderful aspects about this manga series is, the fact that it is set in England and not Japan, as most manga is. The dark and alluring side of Sebastian and Ciel will draw you in with every flip of the page. Also, the comedy will have you wanting more and more! If you are looking for a new manga series, I would highly recommend this one.

I am absolutely addicted to these books! There is a lot of mystery built around these characters and just the perfect amount of comic relief. It's definitely worth a read.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Cultist activities, dark supernatural beings, and the illegal underground market, Black Butler's territory is dark by nature. The series is not horror. Yet, disturbing and morally gray circumstances are integral to Black Butler's world.

Violence: People die, including children, often in sudden and cruel circumstances. Black Butler's protagonist, a 12-13 year old boy, has no qualms with having people killed, or getting his hands dirty through the mysterious butler Sebastian.

-Th-that was the ultimate secret technique of our school...!! When the fierce tiger and red dragon roar, ten thousand flowers scatter and split fist... You fiend! Who the hell are you!!!?
-I am the butler of the Phantomhive family. It goes without saying that I can manage a technique as elementary as this. ...Now then, young master. As I have won this battle... ...Please review what you did today and prepare for tomorrow's lessons until dinnertime, as promised.
