Sakura is the granddaughter of a mysterious moon princess who slew demons with her Blood Cherry Blossom sword.  All her life, Sakura has been forbidden to look at the full moon without knowing why.  Then one night, unhappy over her impending marriage, Sakura gazes up at the moon, only to see a demon attacking her...

It's been awhile since I've had a manga series to anticipate the release, and I'm happy to be returning more to the Japanese graphic novels.  I adore most of Arina Tanemura's works, and this new title looks like a promising series.  Her art is one of the biggest draws for me along with the fantasy and legend elements, and I really hope this one delivers a great story. If you're unfamiliar with Tanemura's previous series, here are some of her titles. 


  1. What a lovely cover and synopsis...thanks for sharing.

    Here's MY WOW POST

  2. @ Karen: You can always identify her art style, yes? ;)

    @ Creations by Laurel-Rain Snow: That's half the draw for me when it comes to Tanemura, her artwork. :) Thank you for visiting!

  3. I don't really read these, but they are completely pretty to look at!!

    Thanks for stopping by the blog! You should TOTALLY give the Brothers a go!! :D

    Jess @ Gone with the Words

  4. @ Jess: What you can do is have a look at one of her artbooks which has the characters without the whole of the story. :)

    And I now have the first brotherhood book, Dark Lover, on my TBR list. :D


Thank you for visiting. :) I do appreciate any and all comments received and try to reply as soon as I can. Happy reading!
