Red Moon Rose (赤い月のロゼ) is a book series that can be collected in Trails of Cold Steel. The book can also be read in Trails of Cold Steel II.


The novel takes place in the imperial capital of Heimdallr. Several decades after the passing of Emperor Driechels, an unknown killing spree continues to spread, victimizing young women walking in the dark. The incident would be later referred to as the "Vampire Murders" from the mysterious fang marks found on the victims' bodies. This is a story of how an Imperial Soldier, Alphonse put the case to an end.
