“Lydia Carlton is a fairy doctor,one of the few people with the ability to see the magical creatures who share our world. During one of her rare trips to London to visit her father, Lydia’s quiet life is suddenly transformed when she is rescued from kidnappers by a mysterious young man!
Edgar and his small band must travel to the Isle of Manan, once home to the Blue Knight Earl. But the island is surrounded by merfolk, whose tragic songs cause rough seas and shipwrecks. And even if Edgar and his companions reach the island, they face death if it turns out he isn’t a true heir to the Earl…”
This was another fun book in this series. This is a cute story that is an easy and fun read. I enjoyed it. There are four volumes in The Earl and the Fairy series.
Edgar and Lydia continue on their quest to find the magical sword of the Blue Knight Earl. Lydia still doesn’t trust Edgar but the mystery behind the sword, and the merfolk who protect the island it’s supposed to be on, is too much for her to resist.
The illustration is pretty run of the mill, not bad but not spectacular either. It’s easy to follow and easy to tell who is who.
I haven’t read much shoujo but I am really enjoying this book and might pick up more in the future.
Overall I am really enjoying this series. It’s a fun and easy read with an interesting story and witty dialogue. I definitely plan on continuing the series. I would recommend to those who enjoy light historical fantasy manga.
