*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
Mao is able to discover the culprit behind the blood drained bodies and it turns out to be another cursed relic of the Goko clan. In her zeal to be useful, Nanoka acquires a new weapon.
The main antagonists of this volume are Soma and Renji; the latter getting some great backstory. I am very glad that Nanoka gets some time to shine here with a new sword and I love a full cast of useful people. And her weapon is also a challenge for her to overcome so everything isn’t about Mao and his seriously shitty clan (the more I read about them, the more I dislike them). It widens the scope and is so much more fun. 4 out of 5.
