Although it includes the usual Yuki and Zero moments, this volume of Vampire Knight mainly focuses on expanding it's mythology while peeling away more of the layers of the Night Class. As it begins, Yuki and Zero begin a search for Yuki's missing childhood - a search which by association sheds a light on her foster father Headmaster Cross, about whom we only now realize we don't know very much about. The rest of the volume, however, centers on the Night Class' school break. When a series of events lead to Yuki being sheltered in Aido's home, we meet his immediate family and get a rather amusing and quite human explanation of why his personality is what it is. We also get a revelation about Aido which ramps up our sympathy for his plight regarding Kaname and changes the way we view their relationship. We also learn more about Shiki, who after having spent most of the series in the background turns out to have a rather unsettling and disturbing home life. And as always, there's Kaname, evoking mixed feelings in us with his alternating loyalty and cruelty towards his inner circle. It all ends as the web becomes even more tangled - and one Night Class member becomes the victim of a horrific betrayal while another forges into danger to protect the one he loves.
