Vampire Knight Vol 13 by Matsuri Hino (review)

Vampire Knight, Vol. 13 (Vampire Knight, #13) 
Vampire Knight Volume 12
By Matsuri Hino

Genre: Graphic Novel (manga)

Pages: 184

Published: Dec 2010

Publisher: Viz Media
Summary: Cross Academy is attended by two groups of students: the Day Class and the Night Class. At twilight, when the students of the Day Class return to their dorm, they cross paths with the Night Class on their way to school. Yuki Cross and Zero Kiryu are the Guardians of the school, protecting the Day Class from the Academy's dark secret: the Night Class is full of vampires!

Yuki is attacked by another pureblood outside a graveyard for meddling in the ways of the vampire society. Injured, she returns home to Kaname, who shares with her his past memories and the truth behind the Kuran family.
Review:  This volume has some of the best back story of the whole series! Did you ever want to learn more about Kaname and his past? This is the volume to do so. Just be sure to have read all previous volumes first. This series can be confusing enough without knowing everything else that has already happened and this volume is no exception.

My heart goes out to Kaname on this one. What a sad past he has. Yuki gets to 'experience' it through him in order to better understand him. It is a good thing too. His controlling behaviors as of late have not been doing either of them much good.

And there is still Zero. He seems to have lost everything that ever mattered to him but instead of accepting Yuki as she now is he continues pushing her away. So lots of angst in this volume from our three lead characters.

This volume was a nice change of pace. Although the depressing tones can be overwhelming at times, it was nice to get my head out of the main plot chaos for part of the book.
