Awww. Justin, I knew you loved little ones.
And that is one of the most adorable confessions ever, you poor darling. "'Are you really drawing your sword?' 'Not to kill.'" Pfft. *snickers, bubbles hearts*
Edvard eating sweets is utterly adorable. Justin smiling when he thinks about it is also adorable. These books are just. . . adorable.
And awesome. Curtis, why aren't you around more?! Every page you've ever been on has been awesome!! *dies of Curtis withdrawal*
. . . . .
. . . . . . . . .
*revives to reread adorable Justin scenes again*
This is not a review. It's supposed to be, but it obviously isn't. Someone teach me how to write reviews--it might actually last for one review before I just start fangirling and/or whining again.
This series totally has no ending, by the way. It just. . . rushed forward and then stopped.
But, yes, Sheila, Justin is indeed adorable. Don't hurt him, though. Don't you dare.
The four-star rating is a) because the book/series has no real ending and b) because the plot is practically nonexistent. I love it more than that, and it makes me seriously happy. I'd recommend it to anyone who reads for the characters, because they're awesome. Especially Justin--and Curtis. XD XD
Uh. . . I really love Justin? A lot? He's a sweetheart, and he's adorable, and he's tough, and an idiot, the poor thing, and HE'S AROUND MORE IN THIS ONE YAAAAY!!! XD XD
Honestly, the darling bought Sheila a rose when he didn't even want her following him (you poor, precious baby, how could she not try to keep you safe? What kind of a monster could help themselves?), and he wore a 'disguise' (seriously, Justin? Pfft) that he hated because it would make her worry a bit less. *bubbles hearts*
Sheila, don't you dare let the idiot get hurt. Ever. In any way. Thankfully you're sweet and awesome, too, so that shouldn't be a problem! :D Take care of him, though. Seriously.
Obviously he's going to protect her from Curtis. He's too perfect not to.
Curtis! Curtis returns!!!! *cheering* He is one of the shortest, most adorable, most awesome villains ever. EVER. Please stay. Preferably don't kill any of the awesome characters, but STAY. DON'T LEAVE! YOU AREN'T AROUND ENOUGH! (He leaves, doesn't he? *cries*)
Michael is still adorable. :D Gosh, some of these characters need to be around more. (Just don't detract from Justin's camera time. At all. Just magically be around more, or something.) Oh, yeah, and Michael's an awesome evil demon, too--with wings, mwahaha. Keep it up!
What happened to this review, anyway? This is just me ranting about the characters. . .
Uh. . . The plot. I don't care much for it, but that's okay, because Justin is around!!!! *bubbles hearts, then remembers previous train of thought before Justin shattered it* I've got to say, there aren't very many assassination attempts in this one, considering it still goes on about them in the book's synopsis. There isn't much action, in fact. Hm. I guess you can't have everything?
Anyway, I'm dying to read the next one--conveniently sitting at my elbow right now, new and shiny, taunting me--so I guess that's the entire, useless review. *waves*
I really wanted to read a new manga and my family just happened to be going to a bookstore, so I decided to pick this up despite the fact that it's obviously based on an otome game--which means it'll no doubt turn into a darned romance/harem thingy at some point. *sigh*
The premise didn't even seem to my liking, but the art is pretty, otome games usually (sometimes?) have awesome characters (which is why I'm totally addicted to them), and I figured the MC had potential to be something other than a clumsy, uncertain, entirely decorative, generic otome MC since she was an assassin/bodyguard.
So, I picked it up, read it, and WANT THE SEQUEL. Seriously, I LOVE the characters. Sheila, the MC, is awesome. She's tough without being a slap in the face, knows exactly what she wants, and even though she's kind of an idiot for being entirely, completely, all-consumingly loyal to her prince, I kind of love the fact that she is; I've had way too much of scatterbrained MCs recently.
Curtis is sooo cool. He's evil and creepy, and he looks like an adorable kid--he's about five feet tall, and doesn't really have the right to call anyone weak, considering the size of his wrists. XD Please let him be around more in the next book. Please.
Justin is (wow, I'm so repetitive) also awesome. And. . . so is Edvard. And Marshal.
And I could swear Meissen is Ace's long-lost little brother, or something (which is a good thing I guess, because I adore Ace).
Michael is adorable (Okay, I'm officially insane now--I called both the demon and the master assassin adorable).
This review is utter nonsense, and needs to be stopped (but I might as well say that Ronalus is awesome, too. And that I love Sheila and Marshal's relationship. And. . . Right. End the review. Almost).
I just really want the sequel. . . really. . .
