Can everybody PLEASE read this series?! I fell in love with it but it has no Fandom and I'm alone in my feelings!

I'm already 3.5 hours into the #20in4 #readathon. @Andrew65

I've finished A Curse... and read 5chapters of its sequel A Heart...

Now a few chapters in my #buddyread with @DuckOfDoom and @Maike.

Then a chapter in the tagged book, a buddyread with my daughter.

#GhostCat did not approve of my taking pictures of books, but is happily sleeping on my legs now.

#CatsOfLitsy

Andrew65 A good start. 2y

Really enjoyed this story. Yumeko was interesting to get to see grow. Yes she‘s still frightened, but every time something happened, she stepped forward more to help save the day. Which is still humorous how she‘s intrigued the likes of a thief and a sword obsessed prince. They all came together over Yumeko being kind. I saw the ending coming, but it didn‘t make it any less devastating. Interested what‘s to come next in protecting the scroll

100 pages left! This entire book has been the journey between the monks temples. I love Yumeko so much, she has such a kind heart and doesn‘t understand how the world around her has to be so mean. She‘s constantly trying to do better. Tatsumi is also slowly falling for Yumeko. Talk about a show burn! Now we have a bandit and a prince join this merry group - all unknowing Yumeko has a scroll piece -which anyone would kill her for, including Tatsumi

alisiakae I look forward to seeing what you think about the ending of the first book! I just finished this trilogy a few months ago. 2y

So we‘re on our way through the mythical world. Yumeko is hiding the Dragon Scroll from her demon slayer companion - as that‘s what he is after. Yet here we go with them beginning to get closer to understanding each other. Even if Tatsumi doesn‘t care at all; he was brought up as a weapon for the demon blade. It‘s amazing how different they are, and cannot wait to see if they keep being companions of turn upon each other. Even with the demon blade

Not gonna lie, but I picked this book up solely for the reason that I loved the authors last series (Talon). I know almost nothing about this book outside that it‘s based of demons trying to obtain the Thousand Prayers scroll that would bring them back to conquer the earth. Yumecko sounds like an interesting woman - half Kitsune, half human with the ability to shape shift. I have seen many mixed reviews about this book -mostly good, I‘m excited

One thousand years ago, the great Kami Dragon was summoned to grant a single terrible wish—and the land of Iwagoto was plunged into an age of darkness and chaos.

Now, for whoever holds the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers, a new wish will be granted. A new age is about to dawn.

This will be my first book for the #Asianreadathon

BookishGirl06 I loved this one. Hope you enjoy it too~ 2y

That ending!! 😱 I could totally see ‘Shadow of the Fox‘ becoming an ace Netflix series. I loved the Japanese integration, the supernatural lore, and the ‘Wizard Of Oz‘ like cast of unlikely friends. Need Part 2.... 🦊

Moving on to another #BOTM I‘ve had *forever*.

BookishGirl06 Well the second book is currently out. I can‘t wait for #3 next March 😊 3y

Finally a heroine who doesn‘t spend the whole mission swooning over the “hero” every 5 secs during an important mission she needs to complete.

Yumeko is a kitsune, half human and half fox. After a Oni demon attacks and kills all the monks who raised her she now has to protect the dragon scroll.

Enjoyed the characters and the weird family they made reluctantly. I will more than likely read the second.

I really liked the Japanese folklore and world-building. Maybe I‘m ready to try some Manga. Maybe. But, I thought the dialogue was weak and felt really discordant with the setting. That turned me off a bit, but I still want to read the sequel.

I loved Julie Kagawa's Talon series and her Blood Of Eden series. But this? I just can't. I made it to 25%, just out of sheer stubborness. It's just blah to me. I can't relate to the characters, and the story seems slow. 😕

Started reading Shadow of the Fox. I‘m about 62 pages in and if I‘m honest I‘m not really enjoying it so far I may wind up DNFing this book though I‘m trying to give it at least 100-150 pages before I make that final decision.

Caffeinated_Reader It‘s so good!!! I loved this one. Maybe try it again in a week or a month? It‘s really great! 3y
Bookaholicforlife @Caffeinated_Reader I‘m going to keep reading for a bit to see if I can get into it. It may just be the beginning I‘m not into. If not, I‘ll take your advice and try picking it up again I. A week or month or so. Thank you. I‘m glad you enjoyed it. 3y

Wow!! This book was very different from what I normally read (not because it‘s bad, just because I find anime/manga/etc culture intimidating!!) but I totally loved it!! I loved the world, the characters, the story, and THAT ENDING OMG 😱😱❤️ Can‘t wait for the sequel. Also I loved the magic system and the MC and ugghhhhh just you know what? Just read it yourself.

Despite the slow burn and length of time it took me to get through this YA fantasy, I ultimately ended up enjoying it. I loved the mythology and world-building, but the plot itself kind of plodded along. The story is very much rooted in Japanese folklore, and I loved that aspect! Enough for me to pick up the sequel when it is published later this year.

LauraBeth I think the bike is more practical - I prefer running but primarily outside. If we had the bike, I could see the husband also using it. 4y
alisiakae @Laurabeth The app is included with the bike subscription, and they have a series of audio classes in the app that are meant for outdoor running, not on a treadmill. 4y
LauraBeth Ahhhh - so with the monthly subscription it also includes the app? I didn‘t know that! 4y
alisiakae @LauraBeth Yes! You use the same login info on the bike, app, and desktop version. So I take all the yoga, stretch and strength videos off the bike and use my iPad. You can also link it to a TV with Roku or something similar. 4y
alisiakae @LauraBeth If you do ever decide to buy one, I have a referral code you can use. 😃 I think a referral gives you $100 off accessories. 4y

alisiakae @Butterfinger Thank you so much. 💕 I have a daughter, and everyone is coping about as well as can be expected. The teachers have been so incredible this week, and have done so much to try to get things back to a regular routine while at the same time honoring Morgan and the children who are grieving more than others. We actually have a weekend trip planned, which I thought about cancelling, but I think will be a good escape for all of us. 4y

I‘m struggling to get into this one. It has all the elements I usually love: inspired by mythology, interesting magical creatures, and a mischievous and likable main character. Not sure why I keep putting it down, and can only get through one chapter a day. #OwlCrate #OwlCrateSociety

Gissy I enjoyed it, but it is a simple YA fantasy novel but it has funny scenes. I think the worst part is those foreign words because you have to see the glossary at end constantly but at the you are going get use to it. 4y

2box subscriptions=2same books😳One is an exclusive edition, at least.YA fantasy book which will be discussed in a Yutuber channel that I follow. Full of adventure, sometimes gory in the description of battles with demons, full of magic with elements of Japanese-samurai folklore which I need to read more. Love the relationship of 3 unlikely characters:Yumeko, Okame & Tarsumi.So funny.Some romance elements. I really enjoyed it as a YA story3.6⭐️

That moment when you‘ve had the ebook for maybe a month and you didn‘t realize it had a preview for the sequel 😱. I have a physical copy of the book and normally I use that when I want to reread certain parts. This time I checked my ebook and stumbled onto this. I don‘t think the physical copy had an excerpt in it.

My little fox creature approves whole heartedly of this one! While not a perfect book (although in the words of my beloved German grandma, 'but what do I know?'), it feels like a vivid anime full of colorful villains, lovable heroes, sassy side kicks, and dreamy backdrops full of shadows and magic. There were also weasels with blade feet, hungry ghosts, and frequent descriptions of food. Ella is mostly here for the food.

Ella Fuzz Fox Face loves the snow. This book would make an excellent anime series. Lady Satomi is a perfect villain and an illustrator would have an absolute blast bringing this to life. Lots of color and opportunity to work in traditional Japanese imagery. Anywho, this is an enjoyable one so far! Lots of blood and guts too....if you are into that...☃️❄☃️☃️☃️

This book checked off so many boxes for me — an utterly swoony, slow-burn romance between two people who‘re as dynamic on their own as they are together. A fascinating fantasy world made out of Japanese mythology. A plot that is masterfully crafted to create perfect tension. I did feel like I was slogging through the writing at times, which annoyed me a bit, though I still enjoyed the story. A compelling, character-driven fantasy. ★★★★☆

Girl who is half-kitsune (fox shapeshifter) and has a sought-after legendary scroll meets boy who is a trained assassin and has orders to kill for the same scroll. The two become unlikely travel companions, battling demons and monsters together. Being half-Japanese, I couldn‘t get enough of the Japanese mythology, anime-inspired heroes and villains, and Sengoku era-inspired settings. Love this so hard and super excited for the sequel!
