Yuki suffers searching for her lost memories
Kaname’s fangs sink into her neck!!

What, I love this series, really, and more so, it’s going to be the same blabble that I gushed about last time, because though the story runs, my feelings about it stay the same.

Vol 8: Yuki waking up and the realisations that some with it.
The past, the present and who she was truly born to become.
Zero, on the other hand is locked up by the hunters, though it seems the head is working for (under) the senate, though I can’t be fully sure about this point yet.

Vol 9: is a lot more about Zero and the whole thing about twins of hunters. It’s actually interesting and sweet the way the twins are with each other.
Kaname goes for the senate
And Zero kinda snaps a little, all understandable, but we have to wait till the next vol to know how it turns out with him and Yuki.

Vol 10: the confrontation that happened in the last book didn’t particularly get resolved but ended for a time. It’s more a start to a new part, I think.
We got a really nice back story of Kaname—again.  


I’m finding that....
Oh, man did I tell you how much I loved it?! so so so good, like always.’s a little hard to follow. It’s becoming more clear the more I read like she—he? That takes a bit too—says one thing, it get cut off by some dialog and then it sorta goes to a part that seems like we should fully understand but your meant to, like that internal dialog still rambled on without is knowing.

I’m also finding it hard to remember people—the important ones I’m okay with and yet the ones I forget are important, but everyone just looks the same.

Well, that’s my bitch. Every series needs one and that’s this one.

I really do love this series. Really, it just can’t be read (okay I can’t) one vol at a time. The story is just...Longley complicated and perfectly lengthen.
It still reminds me of a soap I watched when I was 16 (Passion, yeah, I’m kinda old, what’s it to you), that need to go on though you’re not sure why and’s so awesome you can’t believe why people wouldn’t watch it. Yeah, meaning, read this. Now.
     —I really do love the end stories that make you laugh. They break the tension that builds threw the story and maybe because of them you’re able to actually wait for the next one, you know without pulling your hair out.

It’s just so good, you should read it! Really!!
