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...

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

i really love this one!! it seems that arabian nights stories really has a special place in my heart...its just so beautiful...everything!!! especially the art...its so very beautiful...everyone is just so bishilicous!!!

as for the plot...hmmmm...the starting of idea is pretty...already common...but the way that its is told sets it apart from the rest...their adventures and the damsel in distress thing is really nice...the ending was a but unexpected and it was unpredicted...

overall its a really nice story!!!

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

I am bit annoyed with this manga since a good looking bishounen appear almost in ever chapter and have interest in the main heroine. I know this is shoujo and all that, but it is ridiculous. Plot is nothing special either, character are pretty shallow despite trying to make it a serious drama they fail into cliche very easily. The only thing that is really good is the artwork. This one cannot deny, but everything else - mediocre.

At first, I am so hesitant to read this manga. I really don't know why but seriously, seriously, I cried. I really cried my heart out. So romantic, a very powerful love story. Very touching, letting me wish that I can have a love story like that.

I am sooo glad i found this manga!
I give it nothing but LOVE (:
It's very unique and the art is amazing plus the plot was well developed and well, i just really loved it more than i thought i would (:
The ending was very sweet and left you breathless and wanting for more. It should have been longer but i guess the fact that it's 2 volumes takes all the draggy parts away!
Each chapter was very enjoyable and i highly recommend it!

Its cute and unusual. Good read. I'm glad it was so short because it would be a shame if the story started to drag. Good characters, Beautiful artwork.

I absolutely loved this. It was possibly one of the cutest love stories I have ever read and it was just the right length too. I haven't cried in 6 months and the end of this story just made me sob my eyes out. This is DEFINITELY recommended... READ IT!!!! =))
