So pretty much any time Yuri comes across a famous ancient personage and is like 'I should remember this name..." I want to smack her. Who doesn't know Ramses?! GAH! Though he's quite the playboy...

Welcome to book 8 in which Yuri gets to meet her doppleganger! Or rather a beautiful, vain, spiteful shrew of a woman claiming to be her. Too bad Ancient Turkey didn't have google!

So King Suppichan is dead (sadly) and the crown Prince Arunanda (no wait Arunium? Arumpanda? these names!) and so Nakia is

What first drew me to this series was the romantic historical aspect. I loved how a modern day girl gets pulled back into the past. I don't know what it is about those stories that attract me so much, maybe it is the difficulty for the girl of fitting in and having to rely on the guy so much to be able to get along in the world.

I would really recommend this series to fans of Inuyasha, it has a lot of the same concepts.

the Hittites are on the brink of war with the Egyptians all because of Queen Nakia's evil plot to kill Prince Zannanza. Will Yuri be able to get to Kail to explain what happened, or will the two mighty nations clash in a bloody battle of revenge and hatred?

I'm not a fan of some of the outfits in the manga but the characters are to die for. The passion and misunderstanding throughout the books are beautifully portrayed. There is never a dull moment.

I'm not sure why, but I'm REALLY rooting for Kail and Yuri! Normally I don't even care much about the relationship, but I really want those two to be together!!

Eh sì, ci son rimasta male per la morte di Zananza... Alla fine si era dimostrato un valoroso guerriero e sarebbe stato un perfetto re d'Egitto.

Zananza se ne va e arriva Ramses. Che ha la faccia da schiaffi di chi sa di essere bello e di poter fare tutto quello che vuole. Insomma, una di quelle persone che, se fossero reali, eviterei come la peste... ^__^ Ma su un fumetto, si può ben leggere di lui e tifare - più o meno - per lui.

I guai per Yuri, intanto, continuano ad accumularsi. L'imperatore

I found this series on a mere coincidence but it quickly became one of my all time favourites. I read the entire series in 1.5-2 days. It was truly wonderful and a joy to experience.
