A twisted tale of sadistic Sorcerers and the monsters they create. In a city so dismal it's known only as the Hole, a clan of Sorcerers has been plucking people off the streets to use as guinea pigs for atrocious experiments in the black arts. In a dark alley, Nikaido found Caiman, a man with a reptile head and a bad case of amnesia. To undo the spell, they're hunting and killing the Sorcerers in the Hole, hoping that eventually they'll kill the right one. But when En, the head Sorcerer, gets word of a lizard-man slaughtering his people, he sends a crew of cleaners into the Hole, igniting a war between two worlds. The Hole can be hell--even for powerful sorcerers. In this volume, Nikaido probes deeper into her past in search of answers. The remnants of the En family continue their attempts to revive their slain leader. And Fujita's mission into the heart of enemy territory takes a terrifying turn. Plus: watch Nikaido make gyoza again!
