Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up-Miko's family has the ability to see ghosts and demons. Her powers first manifest themselves when she discovers Kagura, a demon at her school who has been breaking the hearts of her friends while feeding off their sexual energy. Kagura's presence unearths other, more powerful demons, and Miko must decide if she can trust him to help her fight them. Full of spells, romance, goofy humor, and haunting supernatural sequences, this book has high appeal. Uncluttered panels and clean, bold illustrations heighten the story's drama. Fans of manga romance should appreciate Kagura's angular, androgynous good looks, and the love-hate relationship between him and Miko. Though the subject matter is spicy, this is quite clean, consisting mostly of cheeky innuendos and a few abstract dream sequences in which sex is insinuated but not graphically depicted.-Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NYα(c) Copyright 2013.

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Mayu Shinjo's works. Her titles usually feature a douche bag uber alpha hero and a timid, naïve heroine. I usually don't enjoy reading stories where the hero treats the heroine, his supposed love interest, like crap. That's one of the problems I have with Black Bird, though I find myself helplessly flipping through whatever new volumes happen to end up in my hands. I don't want to like it, but I do. Ugh! Demon Love Spell reminds me a lot of Black Bird, so if you are a fan of Kanoko Sakurakoji, you might want to give this series a try.

Miko is a shrine maiden, and while everyone else in her family can see spirits, she can't sense them at all. Disappointed in herself because she has no sixth sense, she nonetheless studied hard to recognize and banish demons. So while she is familiar with their characteristics and their powers, she can't see them, which makes carrying on the family tradition unlikely. Still, she has hopes and she is dedicated to both the shrine and her family legacy.

When an incubus begins to prey on girls at her high school, a moment of high emotion gives her the strength to seal his powers and confine him into an itty-bitty demon form. Once the most powerful demon, Kagura is now helpless against stronger demons, and he can't revert back to his former self, a tall, stunningly gorgeous young man who knocks the ladies dead. He is a sitting duck, and so is Miko. Since she was powerful enough to seal away Kagura's powers, all the demons want to kill him and eat Miko to gain her strength. Eek! She can't even see her enemies unless she is holding chibi Kagura! How can she defend herself against a bunch of big, bad, ugly monsters?

This series is absolutely adorable. If you're a huge fan of cute romances, this is one you cannot pass up. The main character is an amateur priestess and through pure luck she binds a sucubus demon and so the story begins of their journey to figure out how to unbind his power. During which time they become really attached to one another, as the he's a real stand-up guy underneath all the seductive induendos. If you're worried about raunchy material, this is a good book for you as well. Though I would agree this is an older teen novel, its not all about the smut like some novels I've preveiwed.

I just started reading this manga. It kept me intrigued (read it the same day I got it in the mail) xD that I will be reading this series. I've already ordered the second volume :D. Keep in mind tho that this manga is not for young children under the age of 18 for sexual graphics/explicit content.

I was pleasantly surprised by this manga. It has likable characters and is sexy, but has humorous moments as well. I will definitely be buying the other volumes. Oh, and chibi Kagura was a good idea, he's adorable and brings something unique to this manga, and without overusing it. I have been looking for a good human/demon love story besides kamisama kiss and I found it with this.

I was a fan of Mayu Shinjo with Sensual Phrase several years back. I had been on the fence about picking this series up, but finally bought the first 2 volumes. Big mistake going ahead buying the second volume...The manga is painfully cliche and just awkward at times. It wasn't too bad until Shinjo starts rolling out a harem of bishounen. I found myself barley skimming the pages because it was just bad. Plot-wise, perhaps my tastes have just changed, but Shinjo's art can be just poor at times. The cover art is rather gorgeous, but the actual manga art is not.
I didn't even bother reading volume 2, I just flipped through the pages. I will be taking both volumes to my local used bookstore asap.

I'm really glad I tried this out. I did enjoy it, however, it seemed really fast paced. I mean on the fifth page, she's already met the Demon Kagura and is trying to get rid of him and then by the end of the volume, she's fallen in love with him.
But it was still really good and I'm ready for the third volume to come out. (Already bought the second because I got hooked on the first!)

The opening scenario to this series seemed really rushed.I've read the second book also.There are basically 2 stories in each book.The intro to the 2 main characters could,in my opinion,have had more back story devoted to it but instead they are thrust together in the first few pages.You shouldn't let that deter you because it definitely gets better.I love this artist's sense of humor which she even manages in to pull off in serious moments.The stories get better with each subsequent one and you can tell by the second book that she has comfortably settled into the look and feel for the main characters.I find the series refreshingly different with a sense of humor that is awesomely and appropriately self-aware and would recommend it to anyone looking for a new series to read.

This Priestess has spunk!

Miko is a Shrine Maiden who is doing her best to become a strong Priestess and fight evil spirits like her father. She is a fun and willful character who although a little forgetful doesn't complain when things go bad. Instead she does what she can to fix the problem. I like her fighting spirit and kind heart.
It was really interesting to read about a shrine maiden as the heroine for once. She is also a very relatable character and isn't too perfect or too flighty.
Kagura is a demon who feeds of women's passionate feelings and although annoyed by Miko at first soon starts to warm up to her. He is an interesting character who has a lot of different sides to him and I can't wait to find out more about him and his past as the series progresses. I liked that he has a soft side, but still retains his own unique personality even if it does get on Miko's nerves (more fun that way).
All around this was a fun and exciting new series that I can't wait to read more of!
ART: The art was beautiful and showed the emotions of the characters very well I couldn't get enough of the amazing drawings! I definitely give this artwork a 5/5
