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!
  Misao and Kyo have traveled to the Tengu village to end Sho's claim on the leadership of the clan once and for all. Misao knows there will be bloodshed, and things will only get worse if the battle is drawn out.
But her attempt to help is thwarted by a cunning trap. Locked in with Sho with little hope of rescue, Misao had a terrible choice to make-betray Kyo or die a horrible, painful death!

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 hasn't been change "Older teen 16+". The cover colors are yellow, and black this time. I really like how Sakurakouji integrates the cover color with what ever Misao has one. Especially with the cherry blossom trees being added, at least I think their cherry blossom trees.

 This volume is crazy off the hook, their is some much happening so fast! Of course though we all knew something was going to go down, when they went back to Lord Kyo's hometown. I just didn't expect that type of turn out!! But yes once again we see Lady Misao taking something into her own hands when she should of waited for Lord Kyo's plan. Yet again she was meant for bait from the start, though she did kinda ask for it since she sought out Sho in his confinement cell. And she does put up a great fight!! "GIRL POWER MAN!!!" Yet it is nice how her character is starting to mature more FINALLY.

{Part 1}                                                                                              {Part 2}
I felt that this part of the chapter spoke to me the most, because we really see whom she really was remembering all along. It was Lord Sho, and not so much Lord Kyo. No, I'm not challenging the relationship she has with Lord Kyo cause its right. I just felt I should point this part out.  

 {Part 3}                                                                                                {Part 4}

  {Part 5}
Kyo also decides to not fill anyone in on the role of Sojo that his brother played, as one of his guardians Lord Kyo feels no one else is worthy of taking his brothers place. Which is very understandable, and anyone can relate that has siblings. No one, no matter what happens between you, an your siblings can ever replace them. Besides the fact that Sho miraculously disappears after his alleged attack on Misao. We must remember that they never did find his body among all the debris. Also when the building was coming down he did push Lady Misao to the side by the pillar so that she wouldn't be harmed, so I'm not quite sure if I should label him as the "Bad Guy" just yet. It was a very selfless act saving someone else so they may live an you parish in their place. That to me equals "Hero".....  

Overall Rating: 5 Stars
