I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
I really hope that Csevet is trustworthy or that, if he's not, Maia figures it out in time to step out of the trap.
Technically, Maia hasn't done anything yet except talk to people, attend a funeral, and have some letters read to him, but there's so much tension. I love it. As long as Maia survives and thrives, anyway. I like him.
