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...

this was a really cute short read nice build up and then an end you kind of knew was coming.... Siva as previously stated by just about everyone was a spiffy bishie w/ dark hair....the art was neat and sweeping...Lys wasn't the dumb whinny female lead we are used to...Thor was adorable kind of like Shippo from Inuyasha...all in all a good lighthearted manga....(maybe i can only say this cuz i just came off of Banana Fish)....but all around a great read...

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!

Nowadays, it is hard to find a touching shoujo manga that pulls at our heartstrings. I usually don't cry when I read manga, but at the end of this series, I couldn't help crying. The art and the story is so beautiful. This is a captivating series that I would recommend. If you want a sweet and touching love story, read this series! You won't regret it!

Note, this manga is targeted towards though who love cliche love stories-- sort of the Disney princess movie type of way. Once in a while, I like to indulge in one of these. If you are looking for a deep psychological manga with damaged characters with many flaws, then don't look here. But, if you want a fairy-tale-like experience, stop reading this and go download this series!!

Seriously though, this was such a good manga that for a while I didn't feel like picking up any other series after this because I wanted this manga to settle in my mind.

The art was stunning - as expected of Hibiki Wataru. The story was quite on the cliche side at first, and I didn't expect too much from it except for the nice art.

But, the ending was really touching, and it shows how strong love can really be. I was at lost for words when I finished reading it. Chapter 8&9 just really changed my mind - and was by far the best chapters.

The early chapters tend to give you the wrong idea though.

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.

Really Recommended read! Like a lot of others, I hesitated to read it, but am SO glad that I did. I mean... the plot is really good (for something with 2 volumes and 8 chapters *o*) and it wasn't boringly cliche, I'm fine with cliche... just when it makes the whole manga predictable. The ending was quite beautiful too XD but I wash I could see a Siva/Lys child *drools*

Art: Beautiful♥
Story: Great
Length: Reasonable (I kinda wish it had an extra volume.)
Characters: Nice for the Serie's length.
Romance: Sweet and Pure
Overall: Stop reading this comment and start reading this wonderful book.

I cried four times while reading this romantic and tragic tale. This story really took my breath away. At first I was not into the story but after reading past chapter one this manga really blossomed. Wow!! the main male lead Siva made me cry for his sorrow over Lys. The author did a great job with this story and leaves readers with a sense of happiness.

Happy endings are always nice. The art was fanatastic however the clothes Lys wore left nothing to the imagination. I wonder how she didn't get raped by Siva by wearing a bra like thing with a tini piece of cloth around her waist.

Moving on, I'm very glad everything worked out. Prince Russet was such a sweetheart. Oh, and for a crack pairing, the genie in the ring and Fatima? Anyways, I thought it was ironic that the devils showed more humanity than the humans. It shows that humans can also be devils deep inside their heart.

Spoiler (highlight to view)

I totally love Siva (bishie+high-class devil=drool) and Lys is so pretty. I love the story tension that Siva has to carry all the time that Lys didn't know that he was her devil.
Its so cute and the romance doesn't grow like mountain tops, instead they show their true love at the fight and at the very ending.

Although it is too bad that such a good manga had to finish, im quite happy that it has because they end up together and if it had continued, there would be more trouble for Lys and Siva and i really just want them two to be together.

A must read story about a sweet love life of a young girl in search of her "very very very" close devil who gave her his heart.
