Introducing the thrilling first novel set in the exotic, mysterious world of xxxHOLiC Written by bestselling author NISIOISIN, and spectacularly illustrated by CLAMP, this original story features the ever-excitable high school student Kimihiro Watanuki, the mystifying time-space witch Yuko Ichihara, and a host of fascinating new characters.
Nothing could have thrilled Kimihiro more than stumbling upon the bizarre wish-granting shop of the beautiful but unnerving Yuko Ichihara, who solemnly promises to make the spirits plaguing Kimihiro go away just as soon as her fee-rendered in daily afternoon chores at her shop-is paid in full.
Of course, the thrill wears off as soon as Kimihiro realizes that his payment plan bears a disturbing resemblance to indentured servitude . . . eternal" "indentured servitude. Still he soldiers on, ready for whatever number of adventures lie ahead. But in Kimihiro's case, three may not be the charm

Finally, however ready, willing, and able Kimihiro thinks he is to face the most unusual of circumstances, he still finds himself completely bewildered by the stranger who chases away his darkest spirits, condemns Yuko as a craven charlatan, and offers Kimihiro a way out of his preternatural predicament-and" "a fortune besides.
