MIKI FALLS: WINTER is the final volume in the four volume MIKI FALLS manga series. The story opens with Miki and Hiro camping out and on the run from the Deliverers, who are out to find them, since their relationship is against Deliverer rules.
Anra, Hiro's hold spirit, is leading Miki and Hiro on a path to Otaru, where they should be able to catch a boat to aid in their escape plan. But when it appears that Anra isn't listening to Hiro anymore and leading them straight into danger, Miki and Hiro aren't sure who to trust.
Will they be able to escape the danger that lies ahead? Will they get caught? And will they be able to stay together?
The MIKI FALLS series is one of my favorite manga series. Mark Crilley has created an enchanting story and his artwork is amazing -- when Miki and Hiro are freezing in the snow, you feel the cold along with them.
If you're a fan of manga, add this to your must-read pile. I don't want to say much more, because you really need to read it for yourself to discover the ending to this series. Mystery, romance, and magic all come together to make this an exciting conclusion!

Mark Crilley has got talent. While not quite as good as his Brody's Ghost series, it has a different focus and style, and more depth in the exploration of relationships. Miki is engaging with her courage and inquisitiveness, and her refusal to give in to outside pressures and forces. All in the name of love: who could ask for more?
