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...

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

Ok, I waited until it was fully scanned to comment. I have to say that I really liked the story, and the art was gorgeous. I'll definitely buy this if it's ever licensed in English.

There is some measure of shojo cliche found, but it's not nearly so annoying as many others I've read, and it has the bonus of being short (but long enough to tell the story), therefore not being repetitive or too cliched. Lys may not have known what was obvious to the rest of us, but she's not an airhead. She probably fits best into the "overly optimistic heroine" category, but she does evolve a bit, as do some of the other characters. There are far worse more cliched stories around to read (or avoid).

This is one of the best fantasy shojo stories I've read. It's romantic, it's believable, and the ending fits without feeling rushed or thrown together unnaturally. I really liked it, and I think others looking for a short, sweet romance story (with a really bishie guy) will like it as well.

Actually, I find myself somewhat in agreement with Chlorophyll. I haven't read (much of) Love Monster, but I think what she meant in her comment was that not that it was a copy but that it was similarly lacking in believability, with a bunch of hot guys and a rather dense girl who always needs rescuing and who they are all somehow attracted to. That's common enough in many shoujo manga, but this series in particular does have some problems with characterization and story. Lys is a bit sillier than I'd like (it's too bad, because she has such a great name! ha-ha-ha...) and Siva is... very very pretty, but otherwise unimpressive. I don't really find it that original, beyond the "Thousand-Nights" type setting and the art.

I wouldn't rate it so low as a 2 myself (I rate pretty leniently, and I do find it cute at times), but I won't deny its problems. For now, I'm reading it for the pretty art.

The art is just beautiful & the story is amazing! Pretty original if you ask me.. yet still predictable. I only read the 1st chapter & am SOOO looking forward to reading MORE!
I can't see how to voters would vote this a zero =O That's not right... I think they meant to put a '1' before the '0' XD
anyways, if you like comedy, romance, supernatural, shouji, and a little adventure in the mix, you should definelty read this!
It's a 10/10 in my book so far!

The advantage of this manga is that it's short, so they characters don't get into ridiculous situations, but just deal with the main problem, have one climax and one resolution. As far as a demon story goes, I liked it, not my favorite, but it's a happy manga, and I loved the art, the demon's drawings were amazing, I really liked it.

All I read is mostly shoujo mangas, they appeal to me a lot, despite the many people criticizing it. This manga is just beautiful, I completely did not see the ending. I loved it. It was beautiful, sweet, warm, and I loved the characters. This manga truly expressed it's emotions clearly, especially the feeling of desperation. This manga is an A+, the art is amazing, the storyline is original, the feeling is just right.

I recommend this to everyone and anyone!

I held reading this story off, I stumbled across it a few times and it looked just like the regular cutesy shoujo where everything is always wonderful etc. However I finally read it and found that to some extent I was right but I was also terribly wrong. Terribly wrong in a very good way!

Plot- See the description above, now imagine darker themes woven into the story. Themes like... death and killing. The plot was much better than I thought it would be! The pacing was very nice, not to fast but in the two volumes it completed the story excellently. In the beginning it was a bit redundant, but it quickly develops into something more and in the end everything makes sense and had a reason for being shown. If anything I want to get across that the plot if VERY GOOD! It really managed to grip me, and near the end I was wondering how in the world it could end well! Everything comes together so splendidly... just read it!

Characters- All the characters were WONDERFUL! Each one developed throughout the story, even the side characters. They were all wonderful and I couldn't help but get attached to every single one, the two mains especially. These characters coupled with the wonderful story line made the manga all the more better.

Art- Beautiful, especially the clothes and scenery! It was so intricate and detailed, helping the already great manga become even better!

Other- Before I end this review I just want to say... this manga was AWESOME! The story is just so great, blending happiness and sadness, fear and hope, pain and love... now I feel cheesy! But really, this manga deserves some more readers and I feel stupid for not reading it before!

8/10 - Was good

BUT I LOVE THE DESPERATELY IN LOVE GUARDIAN ! FOR HIS uhhhhhhhhh female companion! ANYWAYS HIGHLY RECCOMENED! read this or yourll regret it!
