Bloody Kiss is about Kiyo Katsuragi, who inherits property from her deceased grandmother. She does not have a family and plans to sell the land to fund for her education. However, that does not go as planned. Kiyo discovers that there are two vampires living in that old house - Kuroboshi and his servant, Alshu. After that, Kuroboshi decides to declare Kiyo as his 'bride', which is the only person he will take blood from. Will Kiyo learn to like the two vampires? Or will she continue with her original plan to sell the land?
The first thing that I want to say about Bloody Kiss - was that I expected a great story. With a few exceptions, I did enjoy this book. It was a beautifully crafted tale of a girl struggling to make her life her own - and she does get the opportunity. But she realizes that she's not the only one in this mansion left for her by her grandmother. Two vampires are living in there, and she falls in love with one of them. I did have some problems with this book, though.
The vampires were introduced very quickly (she met with the vampires on page four). Something's always happening, so you can't just read along with your half your attention here and half your attention somewhere else.
It's very fast-paced. There is also two bonus stories, one called Angel Love Song and the other called Kazuko's Room, which is about the author's realization to write another manga story after numerous rejections. I loved Angel Love Song, and I can't wait to get my hands on the second book for the ending of Bloody Kiss and for what happens next in Angel Love Song. So I'll leave my review at that, and you can decide for yourself if Bloody Kiss is something you want to pick up.
