Gorgeous Carat Galaxy is the sequel to Gorgeous Carat, by You Higuri. Ray and Florian visit a mysterious castle within a garden called The Forest of Monsters. Florian’s relative is selling his artistic objects in order to support his teenage daughter, who is suffering from mental illness. She’s believes that she is destined to die; however, she also believes that Florian is her guardian, making things complicated between him and Ray. The situation gets worse when they’re trapped in the house, thanks to a snowstorm, and people start dying. What is the truth behind the Forest of Monsters?
Gorgeous Carat Galaxy has more of an emphasis on action-adventure than yaoi, so some readers may be disappointed. However, this may be a good thing because the dynamic between Ray and Florian was pretty much a homosexual verison of the clichéd romantic relationship. This story plays to the strengths of the author, making it a more enjoyable read. Honolulu Gorgeous Carat fans and readers who want a story where Florian’s damsel in distress tendencies isn’t as strongly emphasized will enjoy this.
