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...

Good thing it's short

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!

Wonderful! Read it!

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

Lys is a beautiful, hopeful and strong girl, although I have to say, her outfits were all a little too revealing (they were very pretty, though) Siva is a classic slightly evil-looking bishie, but the story is just so sweet. I was suggested this a while ago, and I didn't read it for a while, since I didn't really like the sound of the summary. Once I read it though, it's just so incredibly sweet, and there are sad parts that made me tear up, and it made me smile, and, and, and... well, I guess you'll just have to read it.It's very shoujo-y, but it's just something that makes you feel very satisfied.

Beautiful art and moving story. One of the few mangas whose story I continue to remember (with the manga's name as well haha). I cried at the end and many times in the manga as well. I've read many romance stories until I started to get sick of the repetitiveness, but this tops all, its amazing. You must read this manga, I urge you. I was so sad when the series ended at two volumes, like I had lost a light, a treasure (LOL).

I'm a fantasy fan and I really like this series. Too bad it's only 2 volumes. Artwork is great and story is good as well. A good romance story for all (especially for shoujo fans). I'm satisfied with the ending.

The characters are quite common for shoujo manga.
The setting created the atmosphere of something more unique.
I would recommend it for shoujo readers who want a light hearted read.
I didn't get very emotional overall but i enjoyed it.
Maybe because the ending was quite an expected one.
The artwork is fantastic.
Read it.

Subject says it all:
It's short, it's sweet nothing really outstanding but it gives an overall nice impression.
The ending
Spoiler (highlight to view)
is a happy one with the main couple living on together.

Overall it's a 9/10 for me.

Such a Fantastic Manga

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.
