1) Covetous You and Insensible Me: I LOVE THIS ONE!!! This is so EXCITING!!! laugh The Uke is sooo cute!! And the Seme is so funny and interesting! The story is so good and adorable. I can repeat read this one till i tired! biggrin and of course i love the extra chapter: 7) Bonds of Blood

2) Lost in the Darkness Before Dawn: The story is good, but when, well... they're having sex, i kinda suprised with their 'role'. And honestly, i kinda disappointed with their 'role'. But i still keep read it because the story is quite good. Until after i read 5) Sleepless Night after i (still can)read 4) The night he escaped death, i really supried and well... happy! Of course i happy, because in the Sleepless Night:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
they're try change their 'role'. :D And I AM SO HAPPY because I CAN SEE the CUTEST when Kagura became Uke!!

3) Confession: This is so sweet! smile Their story is so lovely! I didn't have a complaint of this story at all(the same i felt when i read the 1st story). And the extra chapter of this story: 6) Service is so funny and still lovely adorable cute!

So the point is:
1st+7th= 10 & 10
2nd+4th= 8 & 8, but the 5th= 10 biggrin
3rd+6th= 10 & 10

In general this manga has enjoyable stories with unlikely people paired up together & I think that is where it holds its charm & sweet factor.
The drawings for ‘Lost in the Darkness Before Dawn’ series were especially impressive to me! I think Sensei should draw more fighting scenes-style illustrations from time to time because she does them so well! ^_^ That aside, the story was just as good with a convincing attempt at capturing the atmosphere of that period, & I Love the pairing.

The first story didn't have much for character development, although I loved the siblings. The second story line, though, "Lost on a Moonless Dawn", its prequel, and its extra, is sweet, funny, hot, and romantic. I melted inside while reading it (and not just from the sex, either!). "Confession" was good, too. Although I'm still not sure about the age difference, the story is sweet and heartwarming.
