From Aerandria Scans:

"There once was a girl with a splendid flower blooming upon her chest."

When Lys was born, her heart did not beat at all. To save her, her mother made a contract with a devil: Lys can borrow his heart until the day she turns sixteen, but after that, he will eat her body. Together with her companion, Siva, someone whom she met by chance in the desert at night, she travels around as a dancer girl to find the devil who sealed her fate. One day, while they were traveling, they suddenly meet an egoistic prince and a ring spirit...

Although I didn't expect much from the manga....once I finished reading, I can honestly say that I was in tears.....Really BEAUTIFUL Story.

I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND this to people that aren't looking just for a cliche story.

Reading the summary, I didn't expect the story to be rather touching. I started tearing up in the middle of the first volume and down-right bawling my eyes out in the second volume. The story takes place "a long time ago" in a desert, so you get this dream-like narration. I liked it a lot. Recommended short read!

This manga was one of the best I've ever read. It's a very touching story about a girl and a devil falling in love. A manga like this is hard to find these days, and I promise you won't regret reading this.

This manga is really good! Wayy better than what i expected. It's heartwrenching and towards the ending really made me cry. The romance is very nice, not too fluffy and u can definitely see why they love each other. Usually devil-human story always show the devil as someone heartless or so.. but this is different. Totally recommended!

I enjoyed the art and was more than happy that the story was good and that the writer knew when to end it. It's always sad when stories are dragged on FOREVER and the reader gets bored. This was not the case, a good read.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
it's rare to see a shoujo manga take place in a desert ( Aside from Basara and Kanata Kara)
This is so good, great and sweet. The artwork, well, maybe similar to Vampire Knight but hey, don't you agree? Bishies and more bishies, even the side character are bishis ( Maalouf ) xD
I just simply love it! Seriously, a guy protect/ raise a girl to be his bride <-- don't you love it? I do :D
I love every cute moment between Siva and Lyss and when Siva rescue Lys oh god. Please have mercy in me. I can't stop running around pretending I'm Lys being rescue and hugged by Siva xD
On the contrary, the storyline, plot everything is great but I wished for more actually. I don't like the ending.. I want to see they have kids (argh!) and not satisfied enough, this should be longer actually. Of course we want to see Siva right? Drop dead gorgeous. And Lys not your simply naive shoujo heroine :D She have funny side actually xD

Why I'm giving 10/10?
1. Oh, Siva is drop dead gorgeous xD xD
2. They are lot of sweet moment between Lys and Siva that seems like they are married couple
3. The artwork <-- similar to Vampire Knight ( Like the eye but, well, don't bothered )
4. The storyline and the romance ( yummy )
5. Because I love "Girl raised to be a bride / Overprotective Guy" type x) nuff. said

Hey, do I said I love romance between demon-human girl?? xDD omg! Please, I want to see more manga like this :o

Why it should be only two volume? T_T

At first I really was sceptical about this mangas. The reason was that, for me, a mangas with just 2 volumes wouldn't have a good plot and developed characters. But I must say that I was wrong, in these two volumes I get all what someone could expect from a shoujo and romantic mangas even better than some mangas that have unreasonable number of volumes, pages and pages of random plot, and top of that a crappy end!
So defenitly Im recommanding this one. So go and give it a try you won't regret it smile
