Story: Richard creates a risky plan to defeat the Margaret's Lancaster army. Margaret, meanwhile, is fearful for her son and convinces her daughter-in-law Anne to make sure Edward doesn't join the battle. But things don't always go as planned and Anne herself will make a bold move to save her husband and her father Warwick's memory. Richard, meanwhile, does not know how Edward feels for him and captures him in battle and must ensure he dies that day. Richard's brothers and mother, however, are rejoicing now that the Yorkish army has conquered England and reign supreme. But there is still one more loose end to be taken care of - in the tower of London sits the mad former king whom Richard loves - and the person he is commanded to now kill.
In this volume, we finally get the nature of Richard's 'deformity' as it is explained that he was born as both male and female. His mother continues to plot against her 'demon' child and is fearful that Richard's 'cursed fate' will somehow tip the precarious balance of her eldest son's new throne. Similarly, our other manipulative matron, Margaret, is desperate to ensure her son survives the battles and doesn't rush in foolishly. Ironically, just that happens despite trying to keep her son from running headlong to his own death.
Those who know the history of the end of the War of the Roses will recognize the liberties taken. Although the story follows loosely around the known facts, it also weaves a fun tale while also giving an idea of what was happening in the medieval period. So this isn't a replacement for actual history but it is an enjoyable overwrought melodrama as only a shoujo manga can do. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.
