                                                         (Cover Artwork)
Book Description: Story & Art by Kanoko Sakurakouji
He loves her blood, but does he love her?!

  There is a world of myth and magic that intersects ours, and only a special few can see it. Misao Harada is one such person, and she wants nothing to do with magical realms. She just wants to have a normal high school life and maybe get a boyfriend.
  But she is the bride of demon prophecy, and her blood grants incredible powers, her flesh immortality. Now the demon realm is fighting over the right to her hand...or her life!
  Despite knowing that it spells her doom, Misao is determined to bear her child. But her insistence on enjoying her last days to the fullest only fuels Kyo’s determination to save her. Kyo is so desperate for answers that he’s even willing to listen to his father’s wild ideas, although though they might put Misao as far beyond his reach as death would…

Personal View:

   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 still hasn't been change "Older teen 16+". Yet again the cover art is beautiful, the gorgeous blue yukata kimono that Lady Misao has on is wonderful. It even shows that she's with child. Her face shows that shes calm yet sad, though at peace. Shes enjoying the colors of the leaves changing. Lord Kyo graciously holds her close to himself, with a look of pain, frustration and sadness.
  As Lord Kyo tries vigorously to find an answer to Lady Misao situation their relationship falls on hard times. They start fighting over the smallest of things. Lord Kyo's father comes to visit her mother when she's home. Lady Misao talks things out with him, only to be reassured that they shouldn't look at this time as if it had a limit. They should keep being themselves living their lives together come what may.

  Lord Kyo finally comes to terms with the pregnancy, and deiced to be by Lady Misao's side till the very end. Only offering love and support. I'm not giving to much information on the volume only so that I don't ruin the ending for someone whom hasn't read it yet. But let me tell you this, its full of hard times, love, caring, and acceptance. If only men were really wholeheartedly like this most of the time. Though it will leave a lot of open ending thoughts. Only hoping that they will be explained in the next up coming volume.      

  I would like to apologize for not enough pictures for this volume. Most of the English translations are not on the internet yet. When they become available I will gladly up date this post with them. 

Overall Rating: 5 Stars
I'm sad that we have to say goodbye for right now to all the wonderful characters in this great manga. Can't wait to see what happens next. Miss you guys already, its been quite the journey. A Special thank you to the wonderful creator of this great series. Please keep up with the great work. 

{I choice this song to go with the feeling of this volume. Hopefully you enjoy it. "Paul Cardall - Sign of Affection"}

Volume 18


   We get one more volume from what I've found, sadly though I think its the last book in the series! An man I really wanted to know what was going to happen!!!! Guhh.... *Sighs* Guess will just have to wait till its released in March of next year!!! *WAH!!* It is available for pre-order online from Barns and Noble. Once again I have that needing feeling to learn Japanese again. Yet that would be the seventh language I've learned in this lifetime. Hopefully you have enjoyed this series just as much as me. And hope to see you back again when the next volume is out.
