Book Description: Story & Art by Kanoko Sakurakouji
He loves her blood, but does he love her?!
The past returns to haunt Kyo and Misao when Kyo’s long-lost father suddenly reappears. But the reunion is less than happy, for Lord Yo is suspected of murdering his wife!
Misao learns the real story of the deadly incident, but it is hardly comforting. Should she tell Kyo about his mother’s fate, or should she protect him from a truth he might not want to know?

I got this copy from Barns and noble (same time I bought Volumes 4-17) in store for $9.99 plus tax, it's priced the same online. Unless you would like it for a Nook I believe its $5.99. The ranged age hasn't been change "Older teen 16+". The cover colors are a different array of pink's, white, green, yellow and of course black. Ah, Yes I'm starting to LOVE the individual cover artwork now that I've seen Lady Misao getting a cover shot all by herself. It had always seemed with pretty much every cover shot was with Lady Misao, and Lord Kyo.
Not saying the art wants fabulous. It just seemed the she was always crying, and needed to be held. Maybe not with how far the story line has gone. We're truly getting to see a new more mature side of miss Lady Misao. AND Yes I am loving it. This artwork looks completely flawless! I believe she does truly look like a Senka Maiden, also how the black wings are integrated into the picture so its not like shes completely alone. The bird cage is the topping to the cake here people.
YES! Sakurakouji you have completely out did yourself on this cover! Fantastic!!
Lord Kyo takes Lady Misao back to his hometown to deal with the up roar going on. So what new catastrophes lies ahead of our Lord and Lady that Lord Sho has set in motion??? Guess you'll have to read the next volume right!
