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 magic 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!
   Kyo, the head of the Tengu demon clan, is Misao's only chance for survival. But even though she has sweet memories of him as a childhood friend, she has trouble reconciling them with the man he has become.
   Despite the strange attraction, can she trust her life, let alone her heart, to a man who only cares about the promise of her blood?

Personal View:

   I got this copy from Barns and noble 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. Lately thought I haven't heard many good things about putting a Manga copy on them. Sources (from listening to friends complain). It is ranged for "Older teen". This front cover artwork is just as stunning as the first. (Have a feeling their all going to be like this.) The main colors are blue and black I think the reason for the constant black is because of Kyo. Since when hes in his true form he pretty much just in mostly black. Have you noticed when hes in true form his hair gets longer too...!?

 Theirs only four chapters in this volume, besides the glossary, Sakurakouji added a bonus chapter. In our opening we meet Kyo's vassals whom are just as beautiful as Kyo. Oww.. And major story twister his older brother is one of the Eight Daitengu, which are like the clan leaders personal bodyguards.You know theirs going to be some drama their since Kyo took his birth right from him to be the clan leader. Funny part is he shows up last an late. 

                                                       (Vol. 2 chapter 8)
  In the first chapter I will say though "My oh my!! We find out that Kyo is and has been a stalker to Misao this whole time!!" He has volumes of different kinds of pictures of her. She finds out when she walks in on the eight looking at them. Yup now that's gotta make you laugh, but totally embarrassing. Kyo's an Misao's relationship starts to progress a little more, which I'm going to kinda expect since he's pretty much saving her every time she turns around. Besides healing her. Yes! Some of those healing sessions are kinda intense for a girl if you kinda like just met the guy. That is claiming hes going to marry you, an already considers you to be his bride, no matter what.
