However, their quest to break the course isn’t an easy one. After being in a prison in Celeas, our heroes are searching for answers. There’s more to the curse that meets the eye.

Havi brings Vald to a cabe to perform a ritual and discover more about the curse. But the magic isn’t easy, and Vald ends up in pain. Rulca isn’t the only one watching. Another sorcerer is watching from afar, eager to know more about Vald. He wants him, and he’ll do whatever to get him grip on him. So, he first sends a minion to capture Vald.
In the meanwhile, Havi ends up releasing all the pain and stress from Demon Vald. As soon as Havi approached Vald during the ritual, he transform into a demon, and sexy times happen again.
Demon Vald needs Havi to love him in every way (and position) the sorcerer might think of. But while the demon is all infatuated and all about sex, Vald keeps being oblivious of it. However, this situation isn’t going a last, since Vald is finding it odd to know that he knows about Havi’s skin and lips. He questions himself over and over the matter, but he still cannot find why.
Havi started having sex with Vald because he was curious. But now, he’s in love and he’ll do whatever to protect his precious demon. However, he’ll need to face the inevitable: that he might be rejected by Vald when he’s not in his demon skin.
Havi is serious: “as long as I live, no one will be able to do with you as they please. I will not allow it.” Havi is thinking more about Vald as someone that belongs only to him.
In the way, they meet a thief. Vald is so innocent that merrily helps him without thinking that he could steal from them. And sure enough, he ends up stealing the books that Havi had stolen in Celeas. Rare books with tons of magic in them.
The woods are teaming with monsters. Soon, when they arrive to a village, they discover it plagued with demons. Vald doesn’t think it twice, and goes to battle killing demons and saving lives. But the more he fights, the more he shows up. His demon features start to be so visible that Havi needs to cover him up and bring him to another place.
Unable to calm down, Havi decides to do what he does always: embrace Vald. But in the heat of the moment, he kisses the young prince. Vald doesn’t know what’s going on and freaks out. He rejects Havi and goes away. Just after that, another demon appears and starts fighting the sorcerer. Weakened from the rejection, he’s cursed.
Rulca and Halrein, a Captain of the Guard from Celeas sent to retrieve the stolen books, try to help Havi. Soon they’re all to their knees. Then Vald appears to save the day, but he cannot kill the demon. Finally, when the demon Gileh tries to kidnap Vald, Havi tricks him and is taken a way in Vald’s place.
Vald is troubled. Before Gileh taking Havi in Vald’s place, he ended up talking with the thief about his feelings. He’s all messed up. He feels something he cannot name towards the sorcerer. Vald doesn’t know it yet, but he’s in love with Havi.
At night, an image of Gileh and Havi appears in Vald’s room. Rulca was trying to calm him down. Gileh is using Havi as bate to get Vald. Despite being super confused, Vald ends up stating that Havi belongs to him. And so, Havi, Rulca, Halrein, and the thief Mars set up to retrieve Hal. However, the place where’s he’s taken is protected by strong magic.
First they try to lure a dragon to bring them all to the place. Desperate, Vald ends up snapping realizing that it was his fault Havi is a prisoner. He rejected the sorcerer, and now he’s somewhere out of his reach. Rage plagues him and turns into his demon form shattering the protection wall and entering Gileh’s realm.
Gileh has been brainwashing Havi during days with heavy magic and venom. Poisoning his heart and blinding his sight, everything to make him forget Vald. Havi is in shadows, and so he becomes a puppet of Gileh who uses him as a pawn to fight Vald. The only way to save Havi is to purify him.
Vald ends up as a prisoner himself, raped by Gileh’s snakes. Just like Havi was before. However, things are not going according to his plan.
Havi is still in shadows, but somewhat he remembers Vald. He goes to his dungeon and he end up making up through the bars of the place. In the meanwhile, Gileh is surprised by his Master. He has taken a different shape. A kid’s shape. What will happen next?
True, this volume had less sex scenes than the previous one. But the action and the story were highly entertaining. Vald is discovering that he’s in love with Havi, but will his social upwringing be an issue for the love birds if they manage to escape the demons’ trap? Don’t miss Crimson Spell [The Book Depository] [Waterstones] [CDJapan], it’s gold!
