Goodreads Synopsis:

The Path Not Chosen

Chise is gradually learning to understand both human nature and the whims of the fae, as well as how to balance them and walk her own path. Suddenly, she receives a mysterious letter from bustling London. What could an alchemist's apprentice want from her...?

Find out in this long-awaited sixth volume, in a dark fairy tale romance between the human and the inhuman!

Reads from right to left in the traditional Japanese format.


In the first half of this volume, it's nearing Christmas. Chise meets Alice in town to go shopping for their partners, something neither has really done before. In this, we get some odd awkwardness, and we get to see Alice's backstory. It's rather sweet, seeing their growing friendship and their feelings for their partners in how they want to do good for them.
After that, Chise chooses to help a girl find her missing brother, only to end up having to find Elias as well. It's nice to see how their relationship is progressing, how they're slowly growing to want to be around each other and miss each other, and how they're growing to understand those feelings.
This is a sweet little series, and I'm looking forward to the next one.
Also, I got this with the extra little booklet. I don't see why they couldn't have just put it into the volume, since it was so tiny; but it was still a sweet little extra.
