Volume: 1. 6. 8.

Goodreads Synopsis:

 A blood-pounding tale of an unorthodox alliance between a vampire and an exorcist!

“Bloody” Mary, a vampire with a death wish, has spent the past 400 years chasing down a modern-day exorcist named Maria who is thought to have inherited “The Blood of Maria” and is the only one who can kill Mary. To Mary’s dismay, Maria doesn’t know how to kill vampires. Desperate to die, Mary agrees to become Maria’s bodyguard until Maria can find a way to kill him.

At the Sakuraba Estate, Maria and Shin discover the estate has been attacked by vampires. Meanwhile, hoping to rouse the immortal Yzak from his coma, Mary imbibes his blood, but the exorcist does not awaken. Weak and unstable, Mary stumbles back to find Maria but suffers from a bout of amnesia that leaves Maria shaken.


Things go down at the Sakuraba household; Takumi and Hasegawa are hurt, and Yzak is taken. Mary runs into the kidnappers, and we see that they have a history. Mary even snaps at one point, and becomes a Mary from before Maria. While we get to meet a few new vampires—Di, Dila, and Ves—there's also hints of this other bad vampire, who they're just calling Bloody Eye. It should be interesting to meet her, and find out why they're all so put off by her.
Meanwhile, I love the way that Mary runs after Maria and attacks him. It's adorable. Seriously, it will probably be actually disappointing when nothing comes of all this sexual chemistry.
So much happens in each volume, and it's so dark and twisty that I don't want to give any of it away, and I don't know what to say. I'm really loving each volume of this series, and am looking forward to the next one.
