Sakura, Li, Kero-Chan, and Yue all feel it - the presence of Clow Reed. But how is that possible since he died so long ago? Sakura continues to fight a formless enemy who always uses another creature or creates a natural phenomenon that Sakuramust subdue. Each time she does, the Clow Cards she summons to help her are transformed - Reed’s magic circle on the back is changed into a distinct one Kero-Chan believes is a representation of Sakura’s own magic. These new cards are therefore more part of Sakura than Clow. But this takes a terrible toll on Sakura; she leaves battles completely exhausted and begins to run a fever, but even sickness isn't going to stop her from saving her friends and getting to the bottom of this mystery.
There are so many mysteries in this volume that readers are sure to be emersed in figuring out the answers. Some are going to be obvious for older readers to figure out, but others will leave us on the hook until after this volume. Sakura has to contend with her new cards and transforming magic, but also new students at school who are all connected to the Clow Cards. Of course, Tomoyo is on hand to make Sakura new outfits for her new battles, so there are still a lot of beautiful illustrations and full-page spreads to captivate.
