Who knew royalty could destroy the world? As soon as Tamaki settles into her role as the Tamayori Princess, fate has other ideas. It seems there is more to being a Princess than just battling monstrous creatures and being protected by her guardians, and the secret to this lies with Takuma himself.
But with her very life on the line and the sword of Onikumaru on the verge of destroying the world, just what can she do? A royal and only just in high school, Tamaki needs to understand that a future is tied to the past and to look forward is learning to look back.
