Reason for Reading: next in the series.Amazing! Honestly, I keep saying this, but each volume of Death Note just keeps getting better and better! What a shocking plot twist happens in Volume 7 that then changes the whole dynamics of the story and the introduction of three new characters in Volume 8 take the plot off in a new direction. I can't say much about plot here as it would spoil your reading. What I can say is that Light & Misa get their memories back, just as Light had planned and we are taken backwards a bit to see just how he had planned this brilliant move. Getting that glimpse of Light without his memory, though, really makes one realize just how downright evil he actually is and how much fun he is having playing with people's lives. The Shinigami are back playing a major role in these volumes and we have a good mix between the crime, police detecting aspect of the story and the paranormal aspect. Of course, "L" still suspects Light and Misa although he finally has to let them go from confinement. With the shocking plot twist, the new characters and finally some background information into "L"'s origins, this is one doozy of a volume. There are only 2 more Black Editions left and I can't even imagine where the plot is going end after these changes. Bring on the next volume, I say!
Now we’ve got a Shinigami handing out flyers. Books seven and eight combine to form what is my favorite volume from the Death Note series (so far). Not only do we see the introduction of Sidoh, a new Shinigami with cool tree-branch arms, but we get two more protagonists to face off against Light. If that wasn’t enough there are some serious plot developments pretty early on that I was not prepared for! An excellent series that never seems to disappoint, but only astound. I will gladly read these over and over, just buy them all already.
