From the Publisher
In a world where monsters called Yoma prey on humans and live among
them in disguise, humanity''s only hope is a new breed of warrior
known as Claymores. Half human, half monster, these silver-eyed
slayers possess supernatural strength but are condemned to fight
their savage impulses or lose their humanity completely.
Fearing that she''s no match for the deadly Claymore named
Ophelia, Clare spirits her companion Raki away to relative safety.
But no matter how far they run, they won''t be able to escape
Ophelia''s heightened senses. And now that Ophelia knows that Clare
has awakened, she will not rest until she has destroyed Clare.
Reads R to L (Japanese Style) for teen plus audiences.
