To be honest, from where book one left I really thought it was to go another way. In book one, it was all set in graveyards and then there was the disappearance of the sister. I thought it was going to be much darker, but book two its focus on what happens in the school seems to be taking the lead. While she is still trying to find her sister, there is a lot of time talking about the school and fitting in with the other students (similar to any high school). I am looking forward to book three. This series has been a pleasant read so far.

This manga series has really pulled me in. The second volume is much meatier than the first volume, though the first volume was excellent. But the pace of the story picks up a bit, though the cliffhanger ending isn't as gripping as the ending in the first volume. I wait eagerly for volume three.

Alex's sister has disappeared and Alex goes to the Nightschool to find her. Getting in proves difficult and she ends up enrolling, but once inside everybody denies ever having even heard of her sister. Alex does make a friend, one of the hunters, a girl her own age and Alex has an astral attached to her which is mostly visible but can disappear when required, very cute. The hunters from book one are still in comas but no one knows Alex's connection in any way, including herself. The story progresses we find out a little more about Alex, and the hunters end the book with a cliffhanger leaving us to wonder if lives are at stake. Plenty of excitement and the tension is growing but there is also an equal amount of humour thrown in to lighten the otherwise dark tone of the story. Again we have a disparaging comment about homeschooling, which I didn't appreciate and hope not to see in the next volume. Fun series I will be continuing on with.

You know 4 volumes seems short for a series. Considering how many manga series lately have more than a couple of volumes and all, I don't know, guess I'm used to reading series with a lot of volumes. But its nice to find one that has a couple. This series is just getting interesting as we meet more characters. Love the covers for these.
