This is the first book I’ve ever read from Julie Kagawa and I cannot wait to read another from her! The world that she has created in Shadow of the Fox is fascinating and highly detailed. The characters are captivating and the storyline is unique too which makes it a perfectly written story. I love how the story is based on Japanese mythology which is not over-used like shifters and vampires are. It brings more diversity to the wonderful world of books. If you’re looking for a truly unique and creative read, pick up Shadow of the Fox when its released October 2018!
Once Every Thousand Years…
Every millennium, one age ends and another age dawns…and whoever holds the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers holds the power to call the great Kami Dragon from the sea and ask for any one wish. The time is near…and the missing pieces of the scroll will be sought throughout the land of Iwagoto. The holder of the first piece is a humble, unknown peasant girl with a dangerous secret.
Demons have burned the temple Yumeko was raised in to the ground, killing everyone within, including the master who trained her to both use and hide her kitsune shapeshifting powers. Yumeko escapes with the temple’s greatest treasure—one part of the ancient scroll. Fate thrusts her into the path of a mysterious samurai, Kage Tatsumi of the Shadow Clan. Yumeko knows he seeks what she has…and is under orders to kill anything and anyone who stands between him and the scroll.
A wish will be granted and a new age will dawn. Less
