I personally loved it, as I think anybody who is familiar with the manga Seraph of the End. Without giving too many spoilers, I will say that its' a fairly simple book. It's been transferred pretty well from the original Japanese, and the artwork is still superb. I don't usually read light novels so I can't can't compare it to anything else. You do get to see some characters from the other series, some of them as main characters, others as just little blips. The sentence structure is fairly simple, and over all it's not a challenging read, but it should be a fun read none the less. Personally I would recommend reading the manga first if you haven't. I will repeat myself once though; it is not a challenging read. If you are looking for something more in depth, there are plenty of them out there, but this is really more of a...for fun type thing I would think. Anyway, fabulous book. My biggest gripe is that I was unable to get it on my nook app, and had to buy a hard copy. I would happy consider buying it again if it became available in digital format.
I loved this book! As someone who reads the manga, the book is great for gaining more information of the story. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone.
Beautiful and sad story. Book came in in great conditions and fast shipping.
