Fairy Tale 2 by Hiro Mashima

Lucy is a beautiful celestial wizard who has formed a team with fire wizard Natsu and a strange cat with wings. They are part of a mage guild, Fairy Tail, and have just received a task. Together, they have to steal a book from the notorious Duke Everlue. However, Everlue has hired special guards to kill anyone who comes near. If they survive then they will start their second mission to battle the increasing Dark Guild. Can Lucy and Natsu make it past their first mission to help with the second?

Reading manga is a different experience for all readers. This one in particular is fantasy; it is complete with magic and monsters. I loved how intricate the drawings were, and how the words to the story matched perfectly. The plot was never boring, and I found myself unable to put the book down. Also, the characters were all well put together and had very realistic personalities. I recommend the first volume of Fairy Tale to any manga or fantasy lover.
