As he renews his vow to find the creature that killed her, he has no idea he’s being stalked by a silver-haired girl with secrets of her own. Quicker than you can say “vampire,” Mikogami finds himself embroiled in a frightening conspiracy with actual monsters–but he’ll do whatever it takes in his quest for revenge.
