Sable’s Grimoire: A Dragon’s Treasure Review


A sequel to the Visual Novel Sable’s Grimoire – Sable’s first year at Amadronia Academy is coming to an end, what will he get up to during the holidays… This game is brought to you by Zetsubou Games.

**Disclosure: I received a free review copy for this game.  This does not affect my opinion in any way**


This was actually the first time I stopped to read the narrative instead of just skipping past everything for the trophies – and I’m glad I did.  I enjoy reading comics, so why wouldn’t a visual novel be just as enjoyable?

Really interesting story; I confess that I didn’t actually play/read Sable’s Grimoire, as like I said, I usually just skip all the story and go straight for the trophies.  Helpfully, There’s a ‘previously on’ at the start of the game for those that need a reminder of what happened, or for those like me that didn’t play.

The graphics are very colourful and eye-catching, but not too distracting that you forget you need to read the text.

A very dramatic story following Sable, a human teenager who’s dating Drakan, a half human-half dragon.   In Sable and Drakan’s dorm room, the story starts with a claw to the neck as Drakan is trying to wake Sable up so they can head to the cafeteria for breakfast.  A rollercoaster of emotions, fears, treasure and family spawn from there.

The music is very enjoyable and apt, again, isn’t distracting so you lose the story; if anything it helps with the immersion as it’s all part of each dramatic scene and the high-intense nature of teenagers and their emotions.

Even though the story is that of fiction, the divide between races and the morals and polices relating to humans and dragons, and other races really touch reality in different ways.

A very interesting and enjoyable read and I definitely recommend reading these visual novels every now and then instead of skipping all the dialogue – you could be missing out on a great adventure.


Rating: 8 out of 10.


  • Good story
  • Interesting Characters
  • Beautiful art and colours


  • Slow and progressing the story
  • Characters could show body expression as well as facial


A fun read with interesting, complex characters and an enjoyable story. Sometimes the story dragged a little before progressing, but I still recommend reading.
