This novel is really interesting. First we meet Xellos. It's my favourite character. So mysterious.... obviously he hides something and he is very powerful. We learn a lot of things about the background, especially the Clare Bible. During the first part, Lina has no power. So she has to improvise and find solutions to fight. And the last fight is well described. So I can only encourage you to read this novel. But be careful : once you have started it, you can't stop until the end !
Xellos but not only

Xellos is also my favorite character and Xellos makes its first appearance inside this novel. It will also appear in novel 6 to 8 and 15. The second important feature of the novel is the Claire Bible whose existence is now certain. This Claire Bible will be of key importance of the novels 6 to 7 and represents a really important lore of slayers. The last one but not the least is the demon bloodstones, a legendary artefact in form of 4 gems that Lina will purchase from Xellos.
In the beginning of the novel, Lina, Gourry and Amélia were going to the duchy of Kalmatt and were stopped by an attack of Mazenda and finally separated for about the two third of this novel and after this attack, the powers of Lina will be sealed...
The silver beast will only be present as armor in the first place and then will be the boss of this novel. Technically it will be what will bring together the 4 man group of Lina, Amélia, Gourry and Zelgadis together, group which will remain until the end of the novel 8.
