Masca is a dark, romantic fantasy by artist/writer Young Hee Kim. A modern day fable set on the old premise of a love triangle. Asarella is the apprentice to the centuries old and mysterious arch-mage Eliwho. Eliwho finds great potential in his apprentice if he can only curb her brash and impetuous ways. Asarella's recklessness quickly gets herself in trouble as the story opens. She's concerned about the people held captive by the devil of Sibilla in his gloomy abode, including the young, and handsome prince Mizyar. When Eliwho refuses to aid them, Asarella decides to go off on her own.

The devil she finds is not what she expected. No horrific beast but a darkly handsome man who is prim and proper and amused at this upstart young girl who seeks to challenge him. When a love potion goes awry, Asarella finds herself now a prisoner by choice in the castle and now herself the object of affection by the Devil himself. Soon trouble comes to call on Eliwho in the form of another devil, the Devil Rakne who has a long-standing grudge with the arch-mage. Force to flee, Eliwho soon makes his way to the castle where his apprentice is and the two rival forces of darkness find themselves engaged in a battle that neither can win. And what's more, the Devil Rakne now seems to have become infatuated with Asarella himself. The young apprentice now is trapped between the two devils and her master.

Masca seems to have been a bit influenced by the work of Neil Gaiman's Sandman and Death characters with their young, good-looking, yet modern gothic look and overtones. Kim however, infuses the tale with a degree of humor not found in Gaiman's work. Asarella is certainly the most intriguing character in the book.

This would be my favorite Manhwa so far and i have read plenty of them. From romances like Bride Of The Water God and Goong, to comedy like Zippy Ziggy and Ping. And also the ones that are popular in my area. It takes place in the very distant future. Although the translation is a big confusing at times this manhwa is very enjoyable and well worth the price. If you want more of my advice i would find someway to buy this book now becuse it is becoming very scarce very quickly.
