Sen Takatsuki’s newest novel has hit the stands and a video of her admitting to being a Ghoul has gone viral! And if that news hasn’t done enough to shake things up, the contents of her book are sowing civilian distrust of the CCG. How can investigators effectively take on the Ghoul threat if the public has lost faith in them? And what if Sen Takatsuki’s veiled accusations about the CCG brass are true…?

While Haise is determined to help his old friends escape from Cochlea prison, he doesn’t want to hurt any of his CCG colleagues. But his mentor Kisho Arima takes the decision out of Haise’s hands. In the midst of their heated battle, Arima makes an unbelievable move and confirms some of Haise’s greatest fears about the organization that has become his whole life. He lost everything once before. How will he handle it happening again?!


I'm intrigued with where this story is going, and the events of volume eight took me by surprise. I have volume nine to read over the weekend, but then there may be a wait to get volumes 10-12 from the library, as they seem to be popular and are all on loan at present. Then I will need to wait for 13-16 to come out and for the library to get them in before I can complete the series.
