Review by Linda Yau

After years of living abroad, Viscount Akihiro Tomoe moves back to Japan where he lives with his servant, and has enough business and money so that hardly anyone questions the front that he has. He is a vampire and shares the allergies of a vampire in only be able to go out after dark, but what sets him apart from being a vampire, is the fact that he doesn’t have any fangs. He is living what he believes to be a monotone life. One night after checking one of his many businesses, he sees a fight between a young man and some street thugs.

Akihiro is attracted to the man fighting and steps in. This man as he learns is known as Taichi Yamagami, and has a strange double personality. During the day time, he has a shy and quiet personality, but when it is nighttime Taichi turns into an aggressive wild man. He spent many years alone with his mother in the country side, and is hard pressed to trust or depend on anyone, especially if it is a man like Akihiro. Their relationship will have a lot to work on. Taichi is a inugami, which is similar to being a Japanese version of a werewolf. Vampires and werewolf falls into my realm of pleasure reading, so this book was quite enjoyable.

Just as the relationship of Akihiro and Taichi is progressing quite well. Throw in Ohata, a man who is out to research, and reveal the background of Taichi, and the reader gets some conflict. His introduction came a bit too out of left field, so I was slightly annoyed, by this interruption. His character however, gave some more reasoning and hasten the pace of the story and gave it some depth, but this romance between Akihiro and Taichi has already had some issues, so then what would happened?

After months of misplacing the book in my collection of book. I finally found this book to review, and remembered to write about it. I heartily recommend this book for any readers of vampire and werewolf books. Hopefully this review is not as spoiler as it is. My favorite part would be the point where Taichi is able to show Akihiro a version of the sun in matters of it being dusk, and not full sun. That is such a romantic part, that it kinda make readers forget they were both in the process of sex. This is actually a novel that I would love to see it have a sequel.

Check out Kris’s earlier review of this book.
