The Betrayal Knows My Name is the hauntingly gothic story of a young orphan named Yuki who finds himself entangled with the mysterious Giou family, an ancient war between our world and the world of the Duras, and a strange man with silver eyes who seems all too familiar. With exquisite drawing and storytelling Hotaru Odagiri creates a manga that reads like a novel and will have you begging for more. If you love beautifully flawed characters and a darkly romantic tale of war and forbidden love you want this book!

Description


Abandoned as a baby and raised in an orphanage, the kind-hearted high-schooler Yuki Sakuragi is driven by a need to find the reason for his existence. Plagued by mysterious dreams, Yuki also possesses the strange ability to read the deepest, darkest thoughts of anyone he touches. As both the dreams and his powers intensify, there appears before him a beautiful young man named "Zess," whose face tugs on Yuki's memory. He warns Yuki not to venture outside on Walpurgis Night, the eve of the blood-red moon, which invites death. But when Yuki's compassion leads him to disobey Zess's order, has Yuki carelessly thrown his life away before he's even given himself the chance to find out the very reason for it?
