Whispers turn into screaming headlines in Earl Ciel Phantomhive's morning paper as word of the dead being resurrected takes society by storm.
But when the unsavoury details of the business reach Ciel's ear, he and his superlative butler, Sebastian, book themselves on a luxury liner to look into these alleged miracles and the 'Aurora Society' conducting them.
As the waters lap and crash all around the vessel, mysterious individuals gather under the banner of the 'Phoenix.' Ciel and Sebastian may be one step closer to the truth, but have they sealed their fates by conducting an investigation on what could easily become a floating coffin...?

Review by Kassilem
I got my explanation. And what an explanation it was. The rendition of it was kind of funny actually in all that Sebastian had to do to accomplish his goals but the overall explanation itself is a good example of why this series is "gothic". I forget sometimes that Ciel and Sebastian aren't necessarily the good guys here. Toboso makes sure to remind the reader every once in a while. Despite that I still really like the two characters. Again, that is sort of odd since not much is known about Sebastian and Ciel's history, what we know of it at this point, while certainly horrendous, does not justify some of the things he does. There is some deep psychology hidden somewhere her. I just have to wait until Toboso pulls it out. I'd also love to know more about Sebastian. Hopefully in the next few arcs. :)
