I probably should have thought this one through more. I started on the Iron Fey series by this same author and while the first book was ok, I just couldn't get into any of the other ones, so they sit upon my shelves collecting dust.
I struggled to get past the first part of this book, and it took me over a week to get up to page 207. The story is a good one and the writing is superb, apparently I just can't read books about the Fey, as they don't interest me. I guess my main problem was that even though the writing was amazing, I just really felt no connection to any of the characters. I couldn't put myself in their lives and see me doing any of the things they did. Ethan was a strong male lead and Kenzie makes the perfect female character, afraid but strong willed and doesn't really show that she can't handle what is going on. The Fey in the book, was mostly what I had previously read about in other books, goblins, gremlins, and the like; though there was the introduction of the new smokey/shadowy fey.
I feel that I may be burnt out on Fey books for now and will try to come back to this and the Iron Fey series at a later date.

A half-kitsune (fox) girl and a ninja with a demon-infused sword that wants to possess him, working together to find a magical scroll so a dragon can grant a wish??? This sounds amazing, right?

Unfortunately, I didn’t mesh with the storytelling. It was so DRY, man. At times, it felt info-dumpy or just bland. I don’t think this is any fault on the author, but this bare-bones-telling style is not for me. I didn’t connect with the characters emotionally. I was even skipping paragraphs because my interest kept waning. I also don’t see why this needed a dual pov. Yumeko’s pov was never all that interesting; it could’ve been relegated to a prologue. At least, Tatsumi’s struggle with darkness and his ruthless upbringing was better.

But I think the story took a turn in the right direction when Okame appeared. “Rough characters who are secretly decent deep down” are always endearing to me. This dude brought a little style to this blandness, but he did get annoying with his constant “filthy ronin dog” drivel. Like, sir shut up.

This started terribly slow and unseasoned to me but ended fine. While it is tempting to see how Yumeko and Tatsumi’s slow burn connection ends or Okame’s tragic backstory, I don’t know if I’ll continue with this series. My reading experience was too lackluster.

Gr 3–7—At a market, Shinji is thrust into the adventure of his life when he finds a figurine of a Coatl, a feathered
serpent creature from Mesoamerican Lore, and strives to return the figurine to Mexico before its curse takes effect.
This Indiana Jones meets Percy Jackson adventure touches on respecting and preserving cultures instead of taking
from them.

I had a huge problem with the romance in this book. It went the (unfortunate) Twilight route with the 'dying unless I'm with him' route, plus added the 'my best guy friend is also in love with me but..." avenue as well. BLECH!
I wouldn't have minded so much, but also wouldn't have even started the series, if the first book had even hinted at this. And I'm really sorry, Julie Kagawa is a good writer and this world that she's created really could do and deserves better.
I'll sample the next book, but for now, this series is off my automatic buy list.… (mais)
