The Beast Player
The Beast Player | Nahoko Uehashi
An enthralling and sophisticated fantasy story from one of Japan's most popular writers of teen fiction, which has been turned into a popular anime series Erin's family have an important responsibility: caring for the Toda, fearsome water serpents who form the core of their Lord's army. So when a number of Toda mysteriously die, it is Erin's mother who takes the blame, and the punishment - she is sentenced to death. Before she dies she manages to use an ancient, forbidden power to send Erin to safety - leaving her daughter alone, far from home but with the knowledge that both she and her mother are somehow different. Soon, Erin finds she can talk to both the terrifying Toda and the majestic Royal Beasts, who protect the supreme queen of her realm. This knowledge gives her great power, but it also involves her in deadly plots and political gameplaying that she wants no part of. Can Erin save herself and prevent her beloved beasts from being used as tools of war, or is there no way of avoiding the terrible battles to come?

The Beast Player is my most-anticipated. Its art style reminds me Spirited Away. It‘s a YA fantasy about a girl who can speak with animals, and she ends up getting caught up in a dark plot that could cost her life in a fight to save a kingdom on the brink of ruin. It‘s full of Japanese culture and myth.
Great for fans of Studio Ghibli!

My last read was very short. This next one appears to be over 500 pages. Hard to judge when it‘s electronic. Also making an appearance, my brand new shiny iPad, and new specs. #currentlyreading #intranslation #marchrelease2018 #rso #middlefiction #fantasy #adventure #magic
