Much to Lau’s disdain, Baldo offers to help chief nurse Ada drive out the Aurora Society for the good of the sanatorium. But as they hatch a daring plan to thwart its next shipment, Baldo and Lau meet their match when a sinister, deadly foe threatens to bring about their end. Meanwhile, under Sebastian’s orders, Finny and Snake arrive at the third blood-collection site—F.O.L. Orphanage, where a familiar face awaits them… 

I love Black Butler and plan to keep reading until the end, but I am getting tired of the huge delays between volumes. We only get one a year now, and when it does come out, you can read the entire thing in 30 minutes and, in some cases, as with this volume, not a huge amount happens in those chapters. I really wish Yen Press would at least return to two volumes per year to move things along a bit. I don't have a lot to say about the content in this particular volume, except I always wish for more Sebastian in the volumes when he's mostly off-page. I guess I'll now have to wait a year to see what the next volume will bring. For this particular volume, I am giving it four stars.
