With his carthorse as his only companion, the young merchant Kraft Lawrence slowly wends his way through dusty back roads in search of profitable trade. But this monotony screeches to a halt when, one night, he encounters a harvest goddess in the guise of a beautiful young girl . . . with wolf ears and a tail! Longing for the northern lands of her birth, Holo the Wisewolf joins Lawrence as he follows the ebb and flow of trade through the countryside. And when the two come across a compelling but suspicious opportunity for profit, will Lawrence with his mercantile chops and Holo with her ancient instincts be able to separate the truth from the lies - and make some coin while they're at it?!

With manga, or well, most series, I appreciate that at the beginning, you get a recap, story so far and well, which characters have been introduced so far. It helps keep track of what's going on and whose who. So with this series, its even better. Anyway, I describe the series as good to pretty good. The anime I hear is good too. Another good volume that of course leaves at a cliffhanger or a to be continued, etc. I'm okay with this. Makes me want to read the next one.
Just like the volumes before it, Volume 9 is an excellent work of art. The dynamic between Lawrence and Holo is amazing and the plot only thickens.
