posted on by Karen Ressler
Cross Infinite World announced on Thursday that it has licensed Sato Fumino's two-volume josei light novel series Beast † Blood. The first volume is slated to debut digitally worldwide on February 28.
Cross Infinite World's English edition will have cover art by Akira Egawa. Charis Messier is translating the novel.
Cross Infinite World describes the sci-fi romance story:
Desperate to escape her successful sister's shadow, Euphemia seeks independence as a biotech researcher fixated on destroying Nightz, a dangerous narcotic sought across the colonies. She never believed her life was in danger until a group of men pulled her from her car at gunpoint.
Euphemia had also never met a Beast Blood, the nonhuman subspecies with animalistic qualities, until she was rescued by one.
Zelaide is a Muta Hunter and a Beast Blood. When his hunt is interrupted by Euphemia's attackers, he saves her on a whim. Never expecting to see Euphemia again, he's shocked to receive a job protecting the spunky researcher who just might be his lifelong mate.
Follow Euphemia and Zelaide as they navigate a colony world brimming with peculiar beasts, powerful narcotics, dangerous criminals, and a budding, interspecies romance!
Fumino began posting an adult version of the novel series online in 2011, but later moved the series to the all-ages side of the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in September 2016 in order to participate in contests that restricted works rated 18+.
