Author: Virginia McClain
Pub. Date: October 14, 2017
Publisher: Artemis Dingo Productions
Formats: Paperback eBook
Traitors lurk around every bend. Mishi’s mind is betraying her, and she fears her kisō and katana will betray her next. Taka’s heart abandons her for a person she cannot possibly trust. Now that the two friends are obliged to help re-establish peace in the land of Gensokai, the only question is where the next betrayal will come from and if Mishi and Taka will have the strength to survive it.
This book was such an enjoyable read! It is the second in a series so don’t go into it thinking this is a standalone or first of a new series. I had not read the first but that did not stop me from really liking what I read. It was easy to follow and figure out as I kept reading. The overall story itself was very intriguing, thoughtful, and action packed. It really does not read like a second book so it doesn’t have that second-book syndrome. The characters were so thought out and well developed that it was easy to connect with them. I felt like I was on the journey with them and I couldn’t wait to see how everything ended. I was in this for the long haul.
There are only two small grievances: some character’s names were too closely spelled the same and as a result I sometimes got them confused. AND some of the POV chapters were so short – only a page or two – that it left me wondering why it was included. But please know this did not take away from the overall story. I still kept reading and I still liked this in the end.
Please, give this a try and you won’t be disappointed!
Virginia thinks dangling from the tops of hundred foot cliffs is a good time. She also enjoys hauling a fifty pound backpack all over the Grand Canyon and sleeping under the stars. Sometimes she likes running for miles through the desert, mountains, or wooded flatlands, and she always loves getting lost in new places where she may or may not speak the language.
From surviving earthquakes in Japan, to putting out a small forest fire in Montana, Virginia has been collecting stories from a very young age. She works hard to make her fiction as adventurous as her life and her life as adventurous as her fiction. Both take a lot of imagination.
She recently moved to Winnipeg with her husband (a Manitoba native) and their dog.
