When my sister started to buy and read the series, I wasn't too interested. I read the back cover and thought 'A historic book... boring!' Then one evening, without anything else to read, I decided, what the heck, why not! After reading the first manga I kept returning to her room and getting a new one. I read late into the night, and the majority of the next day. When I found out the next volume wasn't out yet, I yearned for it so badly it was hard to bear! Now I've read up to volume 16, and got another one of my friends addicted to it! An enthralling story of war, romance, and tough decisions! You'll find yourself so into it, you'll be screaming at the book!

I have both books 1-4 but I have been reading all the way to the 21st book in the series. Even though this story has so many twists and turns, it has caught my eye and kept it between the two Main characters in this story. A girl from a Monderned World, and a Prince from the old times, this romance between them is really a cliff hanger from the many times the Heroine gets in trouble, and only Kail, the Prince, can save her. But all I can tell you is that later in the story, that the girl does learn to fight, and get help from some very good friends in the end.

So, if you like to read something that puts magic and sends someone to the past, and like to read Romance with death and other troubles in the air. Then this is the book to read for you. Also, this is my first time writing a review, so please, don't hate me.

This Manga was one of the first series i have evr read and it really got me into manga in genral. The story evolves, relationship wise, character wise, Yuri starts off as a vulnerable girl, but she changes visibly into a heroine. There is war, love, and wonderful humor. i definatly reccomend this to everyone.

I'm not normally a fan of the shojo genre, but this was a great novel. It combines suspense, romance, humor, and a wonderful plot into one story. It doesn't have many complex action scenes, but this is made up for with great character development. Red River is even historically accurate with Ancient times. Chie Shinohara's art is very detailed and well done. I strongly reccommend this book to anyone who enjoys manga and a good story.

I love this manga not just cause of the romance but, because of the strong will power of yuri despite all the tragedy that has been going on around her and still being able to find love and happiness through all of this :) <3

LOVE IT! Read this like 7 years ago when I was in high school and now I want to show it to my brother in law. Definitely an amazing storyline. Worth it to give it a shot, even if you aren't a manga reader.

This was probably the 4th manga I ever read and it is still my favorite. You have everything a manga needs romance, war, and magic. Simply Outstanding!

This story just draws me to it. Prince Kail is just hot, the girl yuki is cute. romance, jealousy, rivalry, and war all in one book. But is makes you want to find out whats next. I've only read 1-5 love it!
