At twilight, when the students of the Day Class return to their dorm, they cross paths with the Night Class on their way to school. Yuki Cross and Zero Kiryu are the Guardians of the school, protecting the Day Class from the Academy's dark secret: the Night Class is full of vampires!
(Goodreads Synopsis)

This is my first time reading manga. I came to Vampire Knight via the anime, which I loved so much I had to read the manga to find out what happens next. This box set took me up as far as the story I knew from the TV series, so I look forward to beginning the next box set for the new plot lines. Sometimes the over-sized hands in the drawings look weird to me, but most of the artwork is gorgeous. The characters and story are excellent, and I recommend this book for manga fans who also love vampires and a bit of angst. Kaname-sama is perfect, but hands off, he's mine. :)
