There are many kinds of vampire from the demon-gods to the Abyss to the beautiful hunters sworn to fight them until the end of time. Their battles rage across a strange world - the world of the Vampire Princess, where reality exists only as a fractured jigsaw above the scarlet wastes of another universe, and where creatures burn from fear and loss can reach out into the world to feed on the weakness of the human heart...
Chapter 1: AYAKASHI NO MIYAKA (CAPITAL OF MYSTERY) Something is preying on the women of Kyoto - something that attacks in the blink of an eye and leaves only drained corpses in its wake. Young medium Himiko is drawn into the eternal war between the childlike vampire Miyu and the denizens of the Abyss, and learns that nothing, not even reality itself, can be trusted.
Chapter 2: AYATSURI NO UTAGE (PUPPET FESTIVAL) Himiko once again finds herself surrounded by a labyrinth of loss and deception, as Miyu battles the demon-god Ranka, a vampire whose kiss turns humans into lifeless marionettes. Their prize is Kei, a boy who hungers only for eternal beauty. But can beauty last forever ? And what must Kei sacrifice to find out ?
Chapter 3: MOROKI YOROI (FRAGILE ARMOR) Miyu seeks out the medium Himiko with a desperate plea - Larva, her enigmatic warrior-servant, has been punished by the demon-gods he disowned. With her guardian trapped between worlds Miyu is vulnerable to the attacks of her enemies, and Himiko agrees to help in return for information on the vampire's mysterious origins. But is Miyu really as helpless as she seems ?
Chapter 4: KOGOERU TOKI (FROZEN TIME) Himiko returns to her childhood home of Kamakura, and to a mysterious house she once dreamed was there. But this house hovers on the edge of the Abyss; within its walls time can be shattered like a mirror, showing Himiko the awful truth behind Miyu's past - and her own...
