I was immediately immersed into an exquisite story of Japanese mythology with well-developed characters and with my more recent experiences of reading from multiple POV’s I was ready and excited to see the story develop from different perspectives.
With a setting in Japan I had high hopes for the world building and of course it was fantastic; I was not disappointed. The description of the landscapes and architecture were descriptive and true and I could see everything clearly in my mind.
This fantasy has it all with mythical creatures, demons, kami-touched humans and samurai. This quest and its companions offer a magical story that discovers new friends and reveals secrets all the way to the ending… that you will not be expecting! I loved this and can’t wait for the sequel!
