If you like mystery, and everything that surrounds the ocult subjet, I recomend this book to read. So far I have readed the first two volumes, and the story goes this far.

When he found out about this power, a misterious man took him in as his aprendice, later on his teacher suggested him to join The Black Order, and organization dedicated to destroy akuma and stop the Milenium Earl. After a few adventures on his way to the Black Order, and a few misunderstandings when he try to join in. Finally the Black Order explained that their main mission was to find the missing pieces of Inocence, a power that can destroy akumas. Which resulted on his first mission, for this mission he was paired up with Kanda, a cold young man with a mysterious past. Kanda didn't like him much, in fact he doesn't like anybody much, but a mission was mission and it had to be carry on. In their way to collect and protect the missing pieces of Inocence, Allen and Kanda enocunter the holder of the Inocence and her friend. And imaginable twist happens at the end of the second volume. And I don't want to spoil it, so you ahead and read it. Art and character designs are pretty great. Truly a explendid book!
