This series is still great. It is romantic and sweet, but it will never let you forget that twinge of apprehension running through its pages. We are always in suspense, waiting for more dark secrets to be revealed. Aoi is a hero who elicits empathy from us, but he will never let us feel completely certain about him because of all the secrets he keeps. Himari is our light, but she has to overcome situations she barely understands, and she’s constantly tested in frightening ways. The stakes are always high.

In volume 13, Himari is not only kicked out of her body—she’s kicked out of her house(!) and must find her way back. The fact that Nachi turns up again terrifies me. I think he’s scarier than Kasha, but maybe that’s because we know exactly how immoral Nachi is. The true depths of Kasha’s evil remain a mystery.

I love how Himari is able to find Aoi in this volume and how well she knows him. But Kasha knows a dark secret that Aoi desperately wants to keep, and I think we’re about to find that out.
