Goodreads Synopsis:

With Nonoha spirited away by demons, Sorath infiltrates their territory only to find himself bearing witness to a horrific public execution dubbed the "Divine Judgment." Surrounded by countless sacrifices, reeling from Leice's betrayal, and faced with his beloved Nonoha having been taken hostage, Sorath's memory is rekindled, and the night when he lost his dearest friend comes rushing back to him. Will Sorath clash once more with the fearsome being who preys on human lives, the Lord of Terror?!


This series is just so messy. It’s dark and cruel and makes me want more but is also a little hard to follow and remember. It’s messy, but hard to stop.
Now that Garan is back, things are not looking good for Sorath. He’s framed for kidnapping, and on the run to right things without getting caught. There are some messy deaths and Sorath has a hard time finding out the truth and saving the people he wants to.
He just wants Nonoha back, and honestly I think he deserves to live in peace with her.
There’s a sad scene involving Kiyora at the end, and since the next volume is the last, I’m sure there will be some bad things happening with Sorath and Garan. There’ll be deaths and twists. It’ll be bad. I’m not sure whether to expect a terrible or a good ending, though. 
I do hope to get my hands on the next one soon.
