It¿s really hard to review volume 9 without giving out some major spoilers, so if this review is more vague than most I apologize. Volume 9 is a bit of a wake up call as Maes Hughes death finally comes to light for the Fullmetal Alchemist and his friends. They are devastated by the loss and blame themselves for dragging him into this mess in the first place. They have some tough decisions to face as a result and some real growth is shown here for both the boys and for Winry as well.The events in this volume also highlight the animosity between Mustang and Ed. Combined with some looks back at the Ishvala campaign and the machinations of the homunculi makes this one of the saddest and most sinister volumes yet.I really encourage you to read on even as the plot twists and characters turn around and stun you. Just like with every other volume, keep unwrapping that onion. There's always another layer underneath.

Maria Ross is a prime suspect for the murder of Lt. Hughes, but we all know hew actually did it. Ed and Al also heads back to central  headquarters finding out the death of Hughes, both them and Winry does not find this good at all. In fact Ed blames himself for his death.  Once Roy mustang finds out about Maria Ross being a prime suspect he tries to find more info on this and soon leave's.  Later finding  out that he went to look for Lt. Ross and kills her by burning her to death.(or so we think) This is a great story  if you like FMA, you have to keep reeding all the books to know the whole story, but this book was amazing.

Wow! Book nine, and, if I'm not mistaken, barely half-way (if that) through the series. Quite honestly, I've read the scans and raws ahead of time, so the cliff-hanger at the end isn't necessarily as much of one for me as it is for those good little readers who don't spoil themselves, although they get to deal with the angst of not knowing... This is where it gets interesting for me as a reader particularly because of the last chapter, which brings to light a whole new involvement with military and homunculi, as well as a few subtle points that I never really noticed before. Again, be patient. This volume is pretty good, and the next volumes will only get better!
