From Storm in Heaven:
Deep in a cave lies a demon trapped in ice who will eat any human who dares enter. The demon, Blood, waits for the human who will cry the purest tears, for the gem formed from those tears will break the spell that binds him. Then one day, a young man named Ishuca appears in the cave - and knowing that his weak heart will not last long, he has come to die. Touched by Ishuca's gentle nature, Blood gradually begins to change from the cruel, ice-cold demon he once was.

My favorite BL series <3
Out of the hundreds of BL manga I've read so far, Koori no Mamono no Monogatari is my absolute favorite. I love everything about it - plot, characters, relationship developments, art, etc. - it is a truly touching series that has made me tear up more than once while I was reading (and re-reading) it.
With that said, I've to admit that my first impression of Koori wasn't good at all. The quality of the 1st volume scanlation was poor, and the artwork as well as plot at the beginning were extremely ordinary, so I thought about either just skimming through the series or dropping it altogether.
However, everything improves with each volume and the story really comes together. Perhaps what I love most about this series is that nothing about it is over-dramatic; it stays real while working with the complications of human emotions and human nature. While I consider Koori a fairytale, and it has its fair share of comedic moments, it also has enough angst to satisfy an angst-lover like me.
To make a long comment short, I strongly, strongly recommend this series!

BEST SHONEN AI EVER
Seriously. This is the best shonen ai ever. I'm not a big fan of shonen ai as I'm more into yaoi. But I can say this story is much much better than many shonen ai & Yaoi I've ever read. I love Silver Diamond too. Really love. But the story on Koori no mamono was much deeper, and darker, and more shonen ai than SD (Since it's obviously they're love each other...and there're kissing scene) LoL. The story much much more interesting after they introduced the main villain (I think it's around vol 8 or 9)
The art became much better & gorgeous on each volumes. There are Characters development; such as from an innocent guy into a mature one. The relationship between the demon and the human was soooooo sweet!!!! I'm melting! The story wasn't that cheap!!! seriously. The main theme of this title was about their relationship, but it was packed completely with an adventure, action, drama, humor (not as much as silver diamond) that mixed into an interesting story. So you won't feel bored reading it.
I don't know if both of them are lovers or not.

But in the end they're living together and claimed that they're love each other
. The funny thing is...early volumes you will get a few of kissing scene. But in the middle till the end, you won't get any - except for the kissing scene that sensei didn't completely draw and the scene of sucking blood from the neck (That I imagine as sexy scene. LoL). I think because the magazine changed from shonen ai magz into shoujo magz. Damn.
I love Blood. He's sooo sexy and gorgeous..and over protective. I always think that he's one sided love as Ishuca is a lil bit.. moron xD
highly recommended for those who love bromance, shonen ai, or yaoi.

The last time I read Koori no Mamono no Monogatari was when there was only about four or five volumes scanlated, and recently I decided to reread the manga and catch up with it. If you haven't been keeping up with the series (or if you haven't been able to get past the first seven volumes) READ IT.
Like mentioned in a previous comment, the plot doesn't start to get intense until about volume 9.
Anyways, I love this series, just as I love Silver Diamond. Light BL, deep character bonds with each other, etc.
Is my top shonen ai, my fovorite, i loved it, specially Wild and Rapunzel arc.
This manga is AMAZING! if you havent read it, i dont know what are you waiting for!
PLOT = 5/5 ART = 3/3 CHARACTER BUILDING = 2/2
I LOVED IT!!! and am waiting for more.
The best shounen ai since 'Sono Yubi Dake ga Shitteiru' (ok KnMnM technically came out before that) trust me i've read hundreds of yaoi/shounen-ai by now. At first the 24 volumns were a bit daunting, i didn't think it would would've held my interest for more than a volume or two (blame the short attention span) but i got through all 24 volumes within just a week. The art was gorgeous and the story was even more so. Although the BL content was light, the love and respect that the main chartacters had for each other was conveyed beautifully. Highly recommended!
Koori no Mamono no Monogatari
Nice plot, and hmm reseonble art I guesse. It has its stupid moment like "somebody figures out something and then that somebody says it to him/herself" But there are really cute moment^^ Don't know if it will be considered as a spoiler, even so, a minor one so..Posible Spoiler ahed>>
Spoiler (highlight to view)
when Blood kissed Ishuca in front of Cain while Ishuca was wearing an amulet, so CUTE^^.
The translations and scans of the first and second volumes are a little crappy... grammer mistakes and low quality scans... (well, I guesse there are people that know english as a forgin language worse than me^^)
It's realy predictable though... In the part with the lake demon in volume 3, I understood who that girl was when Ishuca went to hom. It's still nice nontheless^^

I first saw this manga about a year ago and I didn't bother reading it (don't rem why), BUTTT man do I regret it!! I ended up picking it up because I'm a huge fan of silver diamond (balls to tokyopop) and now the author is also on my favs list ITS one of the best series ever and im very happy that Storm In Heaven picked it back up (Thanks guys). I ended up reading through to vol 13 in one night!! I cant wait for the next release (man the story is intense at the moment!!! ) ,
>So yh READ THIS SERIES! u wont regret it!!
I had just started this series yesterday and finished all of it (including all volumes) in one day. This manga is so funny and is quite creative. It has it's sweet, funny, and painful moments, and the bond between Blood and Ishuca is impenetrable. They went through so much and only until the end of the manga did they finally find some peace. The art wasn't that appealing at the beginning, but as you continue to read, the art gradually becomes REALLY eye-catching. I always respond with giggles and "OMG, bishies". It's one of those long shounen-ai, but it's worth the time to read. I enjoy this series and her other work, Silver Diamond. If you are needing something to read, then go ahead and read this one.

Great manga, but very, very light on the 'shonen-ai' aspect of things
Lovely story, very sweet, sometimes quite tragic, sometimes much lighter and fun. Beautiful art too, especially later in the series - the style progresses to become something much more like what you could see in Silver Diamond. Just don't expect anything much to happen with regard to the shonen-ai aspect of things
Best manga ever?
I thought that "Silver Diamond" is the best shounen-ai manga I've ever read, but this one is just better than SD... Gosh, I love the plot, the characters and the pure love between Ishuca and Blood
