Goodreads Synopsis:

Ghouls live among us, the same as normal people in every way—except for their craving for human flesh.

Ken Kaneki is an ordinary college student until a violent encounter turns him into the first half-human half-Ghoul hybrid. Trapped between two worlds, he must survive Ghoul turf wars, learn more about Ghoul society and master his new powers.

The 4th Ward falls under attack by Assistant Special Investigator Arima of the Commission of Counter Ghoul. Amon finds a connection between the CCG and an underground lab seemingly designed to research turning humans into Ghouls. And an old partnership that could spell trouble for the 20th Ward reforms.


Kaneki makes an interesting decision in this volume, and it makes me wonder if he's reverted a little to what he used to be like. I honestly hope not, though I must admit it might be good for him, given his recent change.
Aside from that, it seems like the author chick is up to something. She's snooping around quite a bit, and I wonder what exactly she's after. We also get a new revelation regarding Yoshimura, which I wasn't expecting. Though, to be honest, I haven't really given the smaller mentioned ghouls much thought. Along with that, we finally get to see what has become of Rize. It's a rather sad site.
The more of this series I read, the more interested I am to see how it ends. We're finally getting some answers, and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next.

A review copy was provided by the publisher, VIZ Media, for an honest review. Thank you so, so much!
