Short Summary: Kai is a daywalker living the life of a high schooler and a vampire hunter. His world is turned upside down when he is assigned a new partner. His bully and tormentor, the witch Kokona. Can the two get along enough to complete their assignments?
The Good: In this world, supernaturals are just coming out of the shadows. The school Kai attends is designed to bridge the gap between humans and supernaturals which is a fun idea. A nice step away from the usual keep things hidden from muggles theme we see a lot. There's also an interesting consipery starting to build up that's a good lead into the next book.
The Bad: It is set in Japan but that fact feels a little awkward. The book swaps between using western titles(Miss) and Japanese honorifics(-san) which I understand was the author trying to show when the main character was trying to be formal but it felt a little jarring as, if this was Japan they would honorifics most of the time. Just a bit on consistency would be nice.
The Conclusion: An interesting start. It really picks up at the end and has started a mystery interesting enough that I'm probably going to pick up the second book. I'd recomend if you're looking to start a series with some cool supernatual elements.
