Ballad of a Shinigami: v. 1: The Light Novel

Paperback / softback
In the darkness stands a girl draped in pure white. Don't let her innocent appearance fool you; her hands grip a glistening scythe. Momo is the dark messenger of death who, along with her wisecracking cat named Daniel, is tasked with releasing humans from their mortal bonds and delivering their souls to the great beyond. First encounters with Momo end in farewells.Light novels are close siblings to manga, geared toward manga fans who are teens, older teens and above. These pocket-size books, slightly smaller than manga and traditionally mass market titles, contain both colour inserts in the front of each volume and roughly a dozen or more black-and-white manga style illustrations throughout, complementing the text.
