Living with a foster family outside a military base in Okinawa, Japan, Saya’s attempts to live a normal life are shattered when a Chiropteran, a horrific vampire-like monster, attacks her. Saved at the last minute by a mysterious man named Hagi, Saya is presented with a sword that awakens in her a warrior’s skills and bloodlust, and sets her on a course that will lead her to the answers of her missing memories, and into battle against a race of creatures intent on destroying the world.

  1. Thanks I’m a great fan of Blood+ series and when I found out this series had a novel I was surprised and wanted to obtain information about it. Also great blog

    • Thanks, Linkmet! I was intrigued to find there were novels for the Blood+ franchise as well. It seems the books expand on a lot of points from the anime, giving the series some more depth and details.

      • Oh great I’ll save some money to buy later for Christmas maybe, I’ll buy a certain magical index vol01, SAO vol 01 next month

      • Also for I need to tell you this, for people out of USA another page that seems to work is book depository they got free shipping apparently and deliver for almost every country

      • Ah, I will check that site out then. Free worldwide shipping would be very useful for a lot of people.
