bookshelves: manga, vampires

More of Saya's story unfolds as her memory returns from her past. The stakes are higher now as her foster brother, Riku, has been kidnapped and she's determined to find him and get him back to safety. Saya ends up working along with the Red Shield, an organization whose been trying to stop the Chiropterans as well.

This manga has Saya traveling to Vietnam, which is good because the change in scenery drives home how this epidemic is expanding. Saya has a lot more on her plate then you're led to believe in the first volume. The action and violence are still there. There isn't as much Kai as in the first novel, but he isn't really a favorite of mine anyway so I didn't miss him. Nothing is taboo in this series as children are subjected to just as much violence and tragedy.

I'm a big Haji fan, so I enjoy seeing him be Saya's rock. They have an underlying bond with each other that builds throughout the series. Unlike volume 1, this volume somewhat combines several episodes from the anime though, again, there are obvious plot differences.

This volume could be a standalone, but since this series is only 5 volumes, it's worth reading consecutively.
