The young man Huey took over the old mansion of his deceased bibliomanic grand father as well as the book collection that's stored in there. But there was a condition: he also had to inherit the "Bibliotheca."

When he inspects the mansion, Huey discovers a cellar filled with piled up books. In the midst of them he comes across a black-dressed girl who's silently reading a book. She's called Darian and has a big lock hanging in front of her. She herself is the entrance to the "Bibliotheca of Dantalian" which contains the prohibited "Phantom Books."

I bought this Manga due to its nice cover and yet i don't regret it.
A bit confusing i think but i got used to it while reading the first chapter.

Atmosphere of this manga? it feels a little like an drawn Stephen King book. For me, tho i am not the biggest Stephen King reader, the 2 books i read felt kind of same to this manga.

The Characters are quite interesting and got an humorous attitude even tho i got the feeling they are serious about what they want to do.

I love the Art, i don't know how to explain it but read more
