Description
From Tokyopop:
Welcome to a world divided into 12 Mines - each of them its own land - dominated by a rigid social class structure in which the 'Habit' exists to rule and the 'Spar' exist to serve. Their future dim and seemingly set in stone, the Spar find hope in an unlikely hero: the androgynous child born of a dwarf and hunchback who is prophesied to overthrow the tyrannical rulers!

A mature theme   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

It is a bit similar to Basara but the theme is more mature. If it were manga I would have classified it into josei not shoujo (but this is manhwa and I dont know the equivalent). Everything is more realistic (despite the fantasy genre). Everyone is somewhat flawed with their own dreams and sins. It is very close to real life in a sense that often clashes do not happen because people try to hurt each other intentionally, but simply because they don't look at the world the same way.

Personally I prefer it over Basara. If you like Jewels, I also highly recommend The Tarot cafe which is even much better.

it was after i read this manhwa back when i was in middle school that i was hooked to different genres!!! like everyone said, I LOVE THE ART that the artist had drawn in every page!!! i was really disappointed when there was only 5 volume. T^T anyways, i love her works. this is by far her best work and i hope to read more.

*** i total LOVE how diamond and lapis fell in love with each other... if i was lapis, i'd hate myself too for my other half falling in love with my arch enemy..... still, it was sad... i really wanted to see them happily LIVING with each other.... and of course (since I'm also a yaoi fan ^^), i will like to see how diamond continues to love not just lazuli, but lapis too... hohohohoho i could see it, but i WANT to read it!!!!! AHHHHHH!!!! @ o @ - - - @ 0 @ - - - @ o @ ***breathes

great story, great art

I absolutely love the artwork in this one. So beautiful!
The storyline is well done and interesting. I had a hard time putting this one down. I agree with a previous comment that this is the best gender bender I've ever read. However, I do think that the story became rushed in the last 2 volumes, and definitely ended a bit too abruptly for my tastes. In the edition I read, though, the author mentioned that he/she was forced to end it in 5 by the publisher. Figures. Despite this, I highly reccomend this one.

This is a good manhwa except for the fact that it's 5 volumes. I have the entire series and the author skipped most of the story right after volume 3 when it should be at least have 10 volumes. Since it's so short it takes much of the enjoyment out of it when you read volume 4.

you like gender benders?

one of the best gender bender manga i've read. it's simular to basara but beats it in terms of making it interesting. if you like gender benders this manga is overall above average and i do have high expectation for the rest of the starting at vol.3 and i would like to thank PI and MNM for releasing such interesting manga because who would have known otherwise

Very detailed.

One note I remember reading about this series was that the artist lost acquaintances because she had to spend a LOT of time on the art. This can be proved by the fact that nearly every page is very detailed with gorgeous backgrounds.
