Goodreads Synopsis:

Rin and his exorcist classmates are caught in a secret war against the forces of darkness.

Raised by Father Fujimoto, a famous exorcist, Rin Okumura never knew his real father. One day a fateful argument with Father Fujimoto forces Rin to face a terrible truth – the blood of the demon lord Satan runs in Rin’s veins! Rin swears to defeat Satan, but doing that means entering the mysterious True Cross Academy and becoming an exorcist himself.

Mephisto Pheles has freed his brother Amaimon from imprisonment and set him loose on True Cross Academy to serve his own agenda. While the Exwires deal with Amaimon’s surprise reappearance, Lewin Light, a.k.a. “Lightning,” continues to investigate the mysterious Section 13 and its connection to the Blue Night event that seems to be the source of all the current troubles. Together they delve deep beneath True Cross Academy, shedding light on long-lost chambers shrouded in darkness and the terrible secrets that were buried there for a reason…


Bon is still working with Lightning to discover the Illuminati secrets. They're doing detective work, following clues, and going through files. They've discovered a few interesting elements, some hidden secrets that are rather disturbing. They're getting information from several people, but they know not to trust any of them. Bon is also dealing with his conflicted emotions regarding all of this, especially where his friends are concerned.
Aside from that, exams are coming up, and after that—Christmas vacation. Which coincides with a birthday, and so the gang decides to throw a Christmas/everybody's birthday party. They've split up into groups to get everything, and Shiemi is pushing hard for a party. Which also coincides with Shiemi's change of future plans.
I'm not sure where the plot with Bon is going, but I'm very curious to see what Shiemi found out to make her change her mind so abruptly.
