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 Dalian 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”.

    (Not a) Loli of Destruction

    This old gem has the chance to be something good. A new concept that did not get overused - as far as I know, that's it - and bears the mystic and mysteries. Sadly, the author lost interest on it, did not elaborate the story well enough to turn this egg into a true Mystical Book - Gensho.

    The concept is good. The writing is not difficult to absorb. There is no info dump in the chapters. It offers... more>> somewhat dark story in episodic way.

    Sadly, due to the episodic nature, the growth of the character is a bit questioned by people who read this. They also compared this Goth Loli Novel to Gosick due the same time frame - post WWI.

    Read this if you just looking for [Loli] and [Book] with dark flavor of blood. But don't expect a great turn - or the TL-er return to translate this gem.. <<less
