This was a free read at VizMedia.com (until 2/4).  I realized the first volume was a free read the day before it expired, and I’m so glad that I made the time to read it. I didn’t know anything about the story going in, and by the end of the first chapter, I was like – whoa. This was a fast read, with horror, suspense, and fantasy elements. I’m hooked.

I’m not sure why I checked this particular book out of the library. The cover isn’t  all that appealing to me because Asahi looks so young, scared, and helpless standing in front of the water dragon god.
