Manga Review: The Betrayal Knows My Name, Vol. 5 [Paperback]

I've finished "The Betrayal Knows My Name Vol. 5" by Hotaru Odagiri.

Product Description

Though the Zweilt are together at last, the calm before the inevitable storm of battle lingers. With no sign of activity from the camp of their sworn enemy, Reiga, Yuki and his allies are beguiled into a sense of peace.

But even the distraction provided by a retreat to the Hidden Springs of the Giou to rest weary hearts and souls will not prepare Yuki for Sairi's revelations about the brave but terrible end met by the Light of God through the ages.  And when Takashiro is called in to investigate a pair of suspicious deaths, the winds of war begin to pick up in a frenzy.

My Review:

Yuki and rest of the Zwelts are enjoying their time at a retreat the Hidden Springs of the Giou.  Meanwhile the proprietress informs them that guests are being scared off and they are losing business.  Everyone decides to investigate and when they realize what is going on most of them get involved.  Sairi also informs Yuki about the brave but terrible fate the Light of God endures through the ages.

Then Takashiro is called in to investigate a couple of murders which stirs up the wind of wars.  Also Shusei and Tsukumo both have disappeared.  We also meet a couple of Shusei's relatives.
