All Teito wants is to forget his dark past as an orphan and slave and to graduate from Barsburg’s military academy with his best friend Mikage. But when an overheard state secret triggers treasonous memories, he’s forced to flee from the very empire he once sought to defend!
Bishop by day and something sinister by night, Frau has managed to hide his “real job” from Teito…until now. On the Hawkzile race that will take them to Hoburg Fortress, Frau loses control and pulls Teito into darkness. Meanwhile, at Hoburg itself, an insurrection fueled by greed draws an older, more terrifying turncoat to reveal himself.
Reuniting Capella with his mother leads to far more intrigue than the tearful reunion Teito and Frau expected. Then, it’s off to a Hawkzile Race that will sneak the duo into District 1’s enemy territory undetected. But even more dangerous than the destination is the blindingly brutal course—and the growing darkness within Frau.
Entangled by the Kraut House’s corruption, Teito finds himself imprisoned in an icy tomb with a strange girl who he swears he’s met before. Learning the dark secrets of Labrador’s past is key to surviving the subzero “garden,” but the trail leading to the gentle Seven Ghost’s sad last days is anything but a primrose path.
While the Seven Ghosts travel to their past lives’ memory bank to investigate who tampered with their memories, Teito unearths a shocking secret of his own—he is the evil god Verloren’s vessel! And unless he regains the Eye of Mikael, his soul may crumble, spelling the end of the world.
Realizing that to move forward he must understand the past, Teito heads to the Land of Seele with Frau. On the way, Teito takes a journey both into his own past and the tragic history of one of his protectors--Castor, the kind puppet master of the Barsburg Church and one of the Seven Ghosts.
When Ayanami storms the Barsburg Church in a ruthless effort to drive the Eye of Mikael from Teito’s body, Frau is forced to make a terrible choice: let the Eye fall into Ayanami’s hands, or abandon Teito to die. But Teito may be powerless to accomplish his search for truth without it…
While Teito trains rigorously to pass the Bishop Examination and gain worldwide travel privileges, a crime perpetrated by one of Ayanami’s henchmen rocks the Barsburg Church. When Frau is framed, can Teito put aside his quest for answers to save the one person who has shown him the true meaning of sanctuary?
