The Devil's Castle is a dark and somber place, until the good-hearted apprentice Asarella stumbles into this abode on a goodwill mission, against the wishes of her master, the Arch-Mage, Eliwho. Things sour quickly, and soon Asarella is bound in a blood pact with The Devil. Little does she know that the mage harbors a secret love for her, which will only complicate her training to prepare her for the apocalyptic battle to come, and which sets up the most unusual love triangle of any place or time.

Masca is a fantasy-romance depicting life and choices of a young mage, Asarella. All she wants is to work hard and become a good mage, but her life take a steep turn when she goes into the Demon Lord's castle. The story opens innocently enough with plenty of jokes and ridiculous situations, but things soon become more and more serious. A complicated love triangle doesn't help Asarella's many a predicament.

Masca begins as a tongue-in-cheek fantasy love story, but its effort to amuse only makes it look somewhat ridiculous. The silly costumes of the characters (which do not fit the setting) even add to its ludicrousness. When I first read it, I dropped it almost immediately. I decided to pick it up again, however, after seeing some good comments about it online, and tried to read it with a more open mind. It turns out to be very exciting to read. The tone changes as the series progresses, becoming more and more intense.
