After reading the first two books I had mix feelings about the character and the author. I will continue to read them (that's no doubt) but as the previous book I was not all that glad about this book. This book suffers from the translation (it seems that sometimes the english language is not suitable or makes all that sense). I think it's hard to translate a book from japonese to a western language. Since I don't understant japonese I can't say anything. If there are some differences from english to portuguese I think what would be the differences from japonese to any other language. Moving along..

This book as the first was adapted for a tv film. If the movies were something good the books I can't say that. This third book the persons doing it changed everything. Even the ending is completely different. In the movie they go happily to the stars but on this book the noble Mayerling is killed and the female counterpart impales herself in his nails (sharp as steel).

I know this book has the right ending but I did see the movie first so...

In the end I think the book (small as it was) drag on in some parts.. In seemed that nothing happened for some time... But as I Said maybe is my perspective of the film. I will read the fourth book in a couple of weeks and see what changed.
The companion-manga book is doesn't feel right and i'ts not that good. I think it add nothing to the all mythologie.
