The excitement continues non-stop in this fifth entry in Kyoko Hikawa's fourteen-volume manga epic, which chronicles the story of Noriko, a young schoolgirl mysteriously transported to a strange world where her coming has been foretold in prophecy, and Izark, a mysterious wandering warrior who comes to her aid, and who ends up having an important role in that same prophecy as well. Picking up right where the fourth installment left off, as Izark battles the strange and malicious monster that haunts the White Mist Forest, it follows the companions - Izark and Noriko, Gaya, Agol and Geena, Barago, Jeida and his sons - as they struggle to escape the dangerous situation in which they find themselves. Noriko discovers that the beautiful "ghost" who has been appearing to her is none other than Irktule, the spirit of the white mist tree, and the companions team up with him to combat their mutual enemy. As they slowly (and painfully) win their way through to Guzena, where they hope to shelter with Gaya's seeress sister, a number of flashbacks fill in some important information about our cast, from Izark's true identity, to the story of how he and Gaya first came to know one another.

My enjoyment of this series continues to increase with each subsequent volume - a big thank you to my friend Jeannette, who made me aware of its existence! - and I fairly raced through this fifth installment. This episode is action-packed, from the fight between Izark and the "hair" monster at the beginning, to the battle with the Rock Bird at the close, but there is also some significant character development. Izark's destiny, as the sky demon whose terrible power will shake the world is revealed, and his relationship with Gaya, who taught him swordplay, is clarified. I had guessed the former, and then had it accidentally confirmed when reading something about the From Far Away series, so that didn't come as much of a surprise. Noriko's declaration of love, when confronted with Izark's other face, also wasn't terribly surprising (surely most readers knew this was coming?), but it made for a very satisfying moment when she kissed him! All in all, an engrossing fifth volume - I finished it with an immediate desire to begin the sixth. ( )

As if being dumped down into a completely fantastical and strange world that doesn’t speak her language or play by her rules wasn’t bad enough. Noriko faces bigger enemies in this volume and feels more powerless than ever. She can’t help her friends or fight the bad guys, all she can do is be herself. But will that prove to be enough?

It turns out being herself is more powerful than Noriko originally thought, but she isn’t the only one showing her true colors. Izark finally breaks down and reveals his true self to Noriko and the result ends up shocking them both.

This volume delivers two fantastic, worth the wait, reveals. One is Izark’s long kept secret that he now shares with Noriko and the other is a flashback to Izark’s childhood and his struggles right after he left home. Both were exciting to read about and I’m glad this twist has come along, it will be interesting to see where things go from here.

The author is still interrupting herself a bit but it’s becoming less and that’s good. Her side panels throughout the volume responding to fan mail are very annoying and keep coming in during key tense and emotional scenes in the book. That I could really do without. ( )

This manga picks up where the cliffhanger from volume 4 left off with Izark in the clutches of the hair creature (yes, I said hair creature). As the story continues on we get a glimpse of Izark's destiny and Noriko is determined to show him that no matter what, she wants to stay with him this time. This manga series has rapidly become one of my favorites of the genre and I would highly recommend it to lovers of fantasy stories. ( )
