Vampire Knight v.3 by Matsuri Hino


Vampire Knight v.3 by Matsuri Hino
Genre: Supernatural
Published: 2007 English version
Paperback: 192 pages
Rating: 4

Inspiration: part of manga series I started last year and want to continue

Description from the book:
Cross Academy is attended by two groups of students: The Day Class and the Night Class. At twilight, when the students of the Day Class return to their dorm they cross paths with the Night Class on their way to school. Yuki Cross and Zero Kiryu are the Guardians of the school, protecting the Day Class from the Academy's dark secret: the Night Class is full of vampires!

Kaname, the pureblood vampire, has kept to his room since learning of Yuki and Zero's forbidden act. However, the arrival of Ichijo's grandfather brings the entire Night Class together to greet one of the oldest vampires on the senate. Ichijo's grandfather says he's there merely to visit his grandson, but he's out for Kaname's blood.

My thoughts:
In-a-word: Pureblood
Although, I thought the storyline was okay this time around, I like the graphics. The vampires are a lovely bunch, except when feasting. There's a love triangle (see portrait, Zero, Yuki and Kaname) in this storyline which keeps me guessing. But I'm more interested in this vampire world's lore.
