Goodreads Synopsis:

On her sixteenth birthday, orphan Himari Momochi inherits her ancestral estate that she's never seen. Momochi House exists on the barrier between the human and spiritual realms, and Himari is meant to act as guardian between the two worlds. But on the day she moves in, she finds three handsome squatters already living in the house, and one seems to have already taken over her role!

Himari Momochi inherits Momochi House, an estate that exists on the barrier between the human and spiritual realms. The waters of the seven sacred falls have become polluted, and Himari, Aoi, and the shikigami cross over to the spiritual realm to find the cause. But during an attempt to purify the waters, Himari is taken away by the dragon god!


Yukari’s backstory gets explored in this volume. We find out where he came from and he learns to relax and get comfortable where he is now. Himari plays an interesting part, as she gets an inside look at what happened with him.
The second half of the volume is taken up with a love curse that Himari has stumbled upon, and how to get around it. There are so many romantic hints in this series between Himari and Aoi, and it just bothers me that most of them are ignored or don’t work out. I really like those two together, and I think Aoi is adorable. I want some nice romance here! And that cliffhanger is just mean.
This series is fun to read, but rather forgettable. I really hope it gets better, but I’m sticking with it.
