This review is from: Death Note, Vol. 4 (Paperback)
Death Note's wont for adding suspense is one of the things that make this series so great. Just when you think it has to end, something new happens and the incoming disaster is averted, for a little bit, at least. In volume three, this came when Light met L in person for the first time, and they became friends.
In this volume, it comes with a girl who can use the same powers and some, but has such a fierce love for Light that she's unwilling to use it for anything but his bidding. Only, with her interference and L's continuing battle against Light, Light does not think this is such a good thing, and must think of new ways to cover up his Kira character now that there seems to be a second in the neighborhood. Luckily, he still has the task force on his side, and he's still a super genius capable of outsmarting even the world's greatest sleuth.
What's make this volume better than the others is the staggering ending. I won't spoil it here, but I will say I was thoroughly surprised by it, and I can't wait for the next volume to get released stateside. If you've been collecting the Death Note series, then pick this up. If you haven't and you're reading this, then I'm sorry for spoilers. Now go back and get the first volume.
