Overview

A cryptic dream, a forbidden summoning, and the day that will change their lives forever...

Cecero is a 16-year-old wizard in training who lives in the country of Grandome; The heart and soul of the mystic realm. He lives in a dorm with his best friend, Sheko (who is possessed by a demon), swooned over (and sometimes badly injured by) countless female admirers, and is the son and apprentice of the greatest sorceress in history! His is a life of security, privilege, and wizardry-induced mayhem.

But when he awoke this morning, he knew today would be different. What he didn't know was that after this horrifying day, his and the lives of his loved ones would be forever changed, and an unthinkable chain of events would soon take place; Events that will challenge their abilities, warp their realities, and threaten everything they hold sacred.

Lizabeth Jimenez takes her readers into a beautifully drawn world full of magic. Every page is breathtakingly wonderful and I, personally, can find myself staring at each page for hours on end because of all the detail and sheer original style of drawing. Never before have I seen such wonderful art carried through out a book past the cover page like this one! Truly remarkable and a must see! Not only is the artwork stunning. Her characters all have very abstract personalities and are wonderfully humorous. Each character is portrayed so well that people can immediately relate to one if not two or more instantly. The bond that these characters share is funny as well as strong and admirable. Also, the story line itself is very unique. While it is placed in a magical world, Lizabeth has added many unusual additions while placed in a school setting. Demerians, Statuses, Crafts, Healers, and so much more will leave in awe at the complexity and creativity placed in this manga. It is well worth the read and will leave you gaping and begging for more. Overall, I must say that this is the best manga I've read with it's breathtaking artwork, characters, and story. Well worth the read!

I'm simply speechless but i MUST shre my thoughts with you!! Ms.Jimenez has just officially created one of the best series' ever written, and has created my new favorite manga! her artwork is incredible! i was staring at every page for so long admiring the loving detail she put into every little panel! if i wasn't so hooked to the story i would have continued to stare! All of the characters in "Sacred" are so unique and all have very abstract personalities (and they're SOO funny!!) Ms. Jimenez portrayed each character so well that you could immediately relate to one if not all of them the moment you meet them. The bond between these characters is adorable and funny but it's also so strong and admirable. you really feel the love they have for each other. i was so impressed and so touched by that! NOW ABOUT THE STORY!! my gosh, where do i even begin?!! it's so crazy! it's sooo unique guys! Even though it takes place in a magical community (Cecero, the main character refers to it as the "Country of Grandome" ) it does NOT have that typical magic realm feel. no, you can tell in the first volume that it has a far more natural feel to it AND she has a ton of special extras! Ms. Jimenez has added so many unusual things to this world: humans possessed by demons called "Demerians" and her take on it is incredibly unique! there's so much detail to it!! how students are given ranks called "Statuses", the witches in training "majors" if you will are called "Crafts", there are Healers in here and so much more!! you'll be stunned and so enticed by Lizbeth R. Jimenez's creativity and the complexity of the story that's only beginning to reveal its self. you're going to LOVE this story guys and when you're done you'll feel like i did asking "when's volume 2 coming out?!! i need it!!" Overall, "Sacred" is the BEST MANGA I HAVE EVER READ. PERIOD. It has breathtaking artwork, incredibly adorable and complex characters (you can already feel that there's so much more to them! can't wait to learn more about them!!), and the story completely enthralls you. Well worth the read!

This story is ABSOLUTELY amazing!! it was recommended to me by a friend of mine who is a long time fan of Lizbeth R. Jimenez's art work, and i have to say, this is absolutely the BETS manga i have EVER READ!! the artwork, right from the start, entranced me!! i'm always turned off by the unprofessional art work you see in "American manga" because they seem so...cheap and looks like they're trying too hard to look legitimate, but Lizbeth has a truly unique and beautiful style that makes every page a total joy to read!! the pace of the story telling is perfect! and it starts off insanely hilarious but then by chapter two you're slowly becoming aware that there really is a darker side to the story. i LOVE that! the bonds between the characters are so adorable and so touching! you really feel their friendship and you can truly see how much they care for each other; something that usually seems forced or weak/lacking in most comics i read. each character is truly human. they're people. when they feel fear and sadness she makes you feel their pain. you just need to read it for yourself! also, Lizbeth's take on demon-possession is completely unheard of and TRULY original. i was so impressed by the little tidbits of the culture and "mejic" in the story and the HEALER!!! i can't wait to learn more about him! his ability was so beautiful!! i KNOW this story is going to continue to surprise me!! with Demerians, status', healers, demons, and goodness knows what else she has in store for us...of my goodness i'm dying to get my hands on volume two!!!! IGNORE THE COMMENT BELOW ME!! they have NO idea what they're talking about!! read all the other comments!! they understand just how beautiful and unique this story is.

I purchased these direct from the author at a convention and the art is beautiful and the story definitely draws you in.  I can't wait to get my hands on the fourth volume!  I am very impressed by Lizbeth's skill and inspired by her dedication.  Definitely worth a read-- no question about it!

Lizbeth Jimenez has the power to capture her readers into this wonderful world of creativity. Each page of this wonderful book captures the attention wheather it is with her art work or creativity of putting out the story.Since am only 13 years old and follow sisero as a role model I find this story very breathtaking and detailed either with the way of her drawings or her way of writing.I have never seen such a wonderful book of manga such as this one. It is a must have!! I can not only found myself staring at each page for hours and hours but i can see myself reading this book over and over agian. This book is not only full of comedy and drama it is also touching and thrilling. Each and every single character of this manga is wonderfully portayed and has its own personality. These characters are not only funny they are also strong and very admred. I find this book to be very unique when talking about the story line but lizbeth has added many unusal characters which you will only be seeing in this book.I love the way her creativity just flows through the pages, it really captured my attention when reading it. This story is worth reading and looking forwarrd to. This has been one of the best books i have ever read. I will am also looking forward for volume two and so should you!! This is a must have book!! Go buy one Now!! :)

The story is all over the place and there is almost no background. Most of the time I thought they were floating in air.
