A pivotal incident between Kaname and Zero aside, this installment of Vampire Knight is largely a transition volume setting the stage for a vicious struggle to follow. Sensing that his enemies are on the move, Kaname takes out several insurance policies that send much of the cast reeling - none moreso than Yuki, who becomes increasingly restless as she senses that Kaname is keeping something crucial from her regarding the day he rescued her as a child and starts exhibiting some uncharacteristic behavior. Meanwhile, lest we forget the last volume's cliffhanger, poor Ichijo once again has to fend off his nasty Grandfather - and finds himself in a miserable and perhaps untenable position when he discovers what has happened to his dear friend Shiki... As the volume ends, Yuki, Zero and the Night Class members start to clarify where they stand, and a pall settles over them as they realize the gravity of the events about to unfold. With some very likeable characters in jeopardy, Vampire Knight remains highly addictive.
