On her 16th birthday, orphan Himari Momochi inherits her ancestral estate that she’s never seen. Momochi House exists on the barrier between the human and spiritual realms, and Himari is meant to act as guardian between the two worlds.

But Himari discovers when a demon attacks her that the mysterious shapeshifting man who has assumed her role will rescue her from danger.
