It was the year 526. The world knew that witches existed and that they practiced the notorious art of sorcery. Nevertheless, the world did not know anything about the study of magic.

Our story follows a half-man, half-beast mercenary; humans mockingly call his kind the "fallen beasts." He always dreamt of becoming a human, but one day, he met a witch who would change his life forever.

"Do you desire a human form? Then be my escort, mercenary!"

The witch introduced herself as "Zero," and explained that she was searching for a one-of-a-kind magical tome that someone had stolen from her lair. Entitled "The Book of Zero," the grimoire supposedly contained valuable magical knowledge that could be used to effortlessly bring the world to its knees.

Thus, in order to realize his dream of becoming a human, the mercenary must accompany Zero on her journey—despite her being one of the witches he so loathed.

This is the story of a haughty sorceress and a kindhearted beast.

The art was nice, and it had a good amount of illustrations.

The anime covers only the first volume, I still would recommend reading at least the last chapter of the first volume. You may ...

I just finished reading it and I hope this review helps you decide whether to give the book a chance or not :P
Story ★★★★ - A good story, with a world-building that I felt the need to see more of this world, I found the end very abrupt, and that it was slightly rushed at the end, the Magic itself I found the concept and how interesting is used in the work.
Character ★★★★ - There are several characters in the work, some do not need development, they serve to move the story along, as much as I like the interaction between Mercenary and Zero, I ...
