This is a YA fantasy tale and is the first of a trilogy.
This is a world where the mythical creatures of Japanese legends are real and alive. So humans, demons and samurai walk the land with other wonderful beings.
There are two main characters, Yumeko, a young girl who has lived all her life at a temple, after being found in a basket at the temple, raised by monks, She is a very special individual, part Kitsune, part human.
Kage, a young man, a special kind of samurai, Who has a powerful and very dangerous weapon and is able to slay demons and monsters.
The two are thrown together by fate and travel together on their quests and the great Dragon is rising.
The language is beautifully poetic and the atmospheric world building is stunning and imaginative. I’m looking forward to the next in the series.
I would like to thank the Author/the Publishers/NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a fair and honest review
