Goodreads Synopsis:

The series' third entry leads Teito to the dark secrets kept by the man who raised him. Teito, an orphan and former slave, attends the swanky Barsburg Academy where, much to the amazement of his classmates, he aces the graduation exam. Things are looking up for the lonely orphan boy, until a chance meeting with the man who murdered his father changes his life forever. Fleeing to another empire, Teito is soon embroiled in a war between an evil god and seven ghosts. He's also in possession of a mysterious new power that could have devastating repercussions for the future of the planet -- and for Teito's own past. While Teito tries to uncover the truth about the Father and the apocalyptic Pandora's box, Ayami's faithful follower, Kuroyuri, frames Frau for a crime so heinous it could mean Frau's execution. Can Teito rescue his friend in time, or will a betrayal among the faithful lead to everyone's downfall?


I really want to catch up on this series, but it’s rather hard to find right now. Annoyingly enough. I’m also annoyed that Go Comi’s editions have colored pages, and yet VIZ’s new editions don’t. What’s up with that?
There’s a lot of serious stuff happening right now. Fighting, and running, and getting caught. New enemies being introduced, more showdowns.
I like the main character a lot, and I like his friendship with the reincarnated creature, as well as the relationships forming with the other characters. The artwork is nice, and the story is very interesting. The humor is also quite funny to me.
I want to read more, and I hope to get my hands on more of the series soon.
