Goodreads Synopsis:

The children of the Grace Field House orphanage must escape a macabre fate before it’s too late.

Life at Grace Field House is good for Emma and her fellow orphans. While the daily studying and exams they have to take are tough, their loving caretaker provides them with delicious food and plenty of playtime. But perhaps not everything is as it seems…

The children have finally escaped Grace Field House, but their struggle is only just beginning. The outside world is filled with natural danger at every turn. And there are also demon hunters fast on their tail. When a mysterious girl suddenly offers help, are the children about to find themselves falling into a trap?


 Given the cliffhanger of the last volume, it was unsure where they would end up. But things start looking up, kind of, for a period. It's really hard to tell with this series, though. There's so many twists and surprises, and I do quite love it.
The kids meet two supposed pacifist creatures, who live underground and help guide them through. This seems good, but there's always that iffy, wary feeling. And the reasoning behind it isn't surprising, but still a bit disturbing.
Either way, they're helpful for the kids. These kids are honestly too smart, and too brave. They will do anything they can to survive, which makes sense, and they think of every possible thing they can.
That ending, though, could mean a lot of things.

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