The ravaged city of Tokyo will prove to be a nightmare for the dimension-travelling group of Tsubasa, Sakura, Kurogane, Fai and little Mokona. Their search for the memory feathers necessary to restore Sakura’s soul has led them to a place of darkness where vampires rule and souls are lost. Innocence will be lost too before this pivotal volume of Tsubasa’s tale ends. Lives will be lost, sacrifices made, and the greatest and most shocking betrayal of all resides in these pages.

On the devastated Earth, the vampire Kamui battles Syaoran, but there is a secret to the fighter who has so loyally remained by Sakura’s side. Fei Wang reveals the truth and Fai and Syaoran clash with cataclysmic results. By the end, one of the group will be gone, another’s life fading, and the group shaken to their core. The dimensional witch is called, but for every favor there is a terrible price. What will it cost them and who will pay the toll?

Beautiful art exemplifies the tragedy of this story. The alternate take on CLAMP’s X series is fascinating in these latest chapters. The events that unfold in this volume of Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles are crucial for fans as it unveils the truth behind one of the main characters and the betrayal that follows and shatters the group.

Yet still more secrets remain and now after the traumatic events in these chapters, the fate of them all, let alone Sakura, are at hand.
