An onmyouji mystic is hired to protect a bride on her wedding day and when a kitsune, a fox-woman, begins playing pranks, the mystic must figure out: who is the kitsune?
A well-written who-done-it style story refreshed by the utilization of Japanese folklore. The story quickly pulled me in and left me wanting more. I love that I didn't solve the mystery until reaching the very end of the story!
My only complaint - I wish a glossary was included to make it easier to look up the Japanese terms that were unfamiliar to me.
I will definitely watch for future stories by this author!
Immediately, we learn that this book is parts of two other books that have been cut and squished together. The premise of the book -to discuss the evolution of human intelligence- is convoluted within an account of a Disney-like theme ride. I found this to be a frustrating read.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review
