Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freakin Death Note Is On A Roll Amazing! Honestly, I keep saying this, but each volume of Death Note just keeps getting better and better! What a shocking plot twist happens in Volume 7 that then changes the whole dynamics of the story and the introduction of three new characters in Volume 8 take the plot off in a new direction. I can't say much about plot here as it would spoil your reading. What I can say is that Light & Misa get their memories back, just as Light had planned and we are taken backwards a bit to see just how he had planned this brilliant move. Getting that glimpse of Light without his memory, though, really makes one realize just how downright evil he actually is and how much fun he is having playing with people's lives. The Shinigami are back playing a major role in these volumes and we have a good mix between the crime, police detecting aspect of the story and the paranormal aspect. Of course, "L" still suspects Light and Misa although he finally has to let them go from confinement. With the shocking plot twist, the new characters and finally some background information into "L"'s origins, this is one doozy of a volume. There are only 2 more Black Editions left and I can't even imagine where the plot is going end after these changes. Bring on the next volume, I say!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a powerhouse packed full of action and wits and logic Reason for Reading: Next in the series. This is the second last book in the "Black Edition" of this series, which combines 2 volumes into one book. With volumes 9 and 10 of the series combined here, as expected, is a powerhouse packed full of action and wits and logic facing against each other as L is joined by Mello and Near in tracking down Kira. Another major character is killed off in this volume and it was a major shock that I did not see coming. If one thought L was strange the two new characters M and N are even weirder by L's standards and pretty creepy as well. N pretty much sides along character-wise with L, while on the other hand M has an unethical side which makes him an even more dangerous character than Kira to this reader. While not giving any plot away at this point in the series, I will say that things have certainly changed from the beginning and gone in a different direction than I would have ever expected, but the books still contain everything I love about the series: the crimes, the witty logical repartee between L (M & N) and Kira. Another new character is introduced who takes over the role as the second Kira and he is a devoted follower of Kira. The book is bringing into play some deep ethical questions now. I've always liked Light, even though I abhor what he does and have wanted him to lose in the end, but he is a hard guy to totally dislike. Highly anticipating the last volume, which will be my next read coming up soon.
