Black Bird v.2 by Kanoko Sakurakoji – 200 pages
Kyo’s older brother Sho, whom Kyo deposed to become head of their demon clan, appears on the scene. He seems friendly to Misao, but Kyo warns her to stay away from him. Sho tempts Misao with promises of being able to restore the lost memories of her childhood shared with the two brothers, and thus traps her, intending to consumer her for her power. When Kyo and his band of eight daitengu vassals rescue her and she glimpses his true devotion, she declares her love for him. She feels accepted and protected by the brother-like band of Kyo’s retainers, but learning of Japanese folklore from her father, has to question what it would mean to become the wife of a tengu.
