Pandora Hearts is the story of Oz Vessalius who is condemned to the Abyss for the sin of “his own existence” on his fifteenth birthday.  There, he meets a girl named Alice with mysterious powers and no memory of her past.  Together, they struggle to reach the real world once more and uncover the truth behind Pandora, the four Dukedoms, and the tragedy of Sablier.  A dark and twisted story with breathtaking art.  You think you know plot twists until you read this series.

Amazon Description:

The air of celebration surrounding fifteen-year-old Oz Vessalius’s coming-of-age ceremony quickly turns to horror when he is condemned for a sin about which he knows nothing. He is thrown into an eternal, inescapable prison known as the Abyss from which there is no escape. There, he meets a young girl named Alice, who is not what she seems. Now that the relentless cogs of fate have begun to turn, do they lead only to crushing despair for Oz, or is there some shred of hope for him to grasp on to?
