Another good volume. This one was interesting. And cute cover.

The drama and plot may not always be the happiest but it makes you see a much deeper level of each of the characters, and not just the main ones. From time to time it has wonderful moments of humor, but most make reference to previous things that have happened and past characters. I love this series and look forward to see how it will continue.
