This, it turned out, is the third and final book in a trilogy….. and I believe it would have been very beneficial for me to have read the earlier two books before reading this one! Don’t get me wrong, it is still an enjoyable read but I felt I missed out on so much of the background information and that detracted from my enjoyment of the story. I’d also recommend reading it in a paper based format as it turns out there is a brilliant glossary explaining many of the terms used as part of the story but if, like me, you’re reading it in an e-format you won’t discover that helpful information until you’ve finished the book!
This is a fantasy adventure with a wide range of paranormal characters, an essential quest to be completed and the world as we know it (or don’t really) to be saved. It is an action packed page turner that keeps you on the edge of your seat right to the very end. A very different saga, this is the finale but still leaves with the potential for follow up books in future including some of the diverse characters. Get ready for super hero powers, surprises galore and battles to be won in this epic read.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
All is lost.
To save everyone she loves from imminent death, kitsune shapeshifter Yumeko gave up the final piece of the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers. Now she and her ragtag band of companions must make one desperate final effort to stop the Master of Demons from using the scroll to call the Great Kami Dragon and make the wish that will plunge the empire into chaos.
Shadow clan assassin Kage Tatsumi has regained control of his body and agreed to a true deal with the devil—the demon inside him, Hakaimono. They will share his body and work with Yumeko to stop a madman, and to separate Hakaimono from Tatsumi and the cursed sword that trapped the demon for nearly a millennium.
But even with their combined skills and powers, this unlikely team of heroes knows the forces of evil may be impossible to overcome. And there is another player in the battle for the scroll, a player who has been watching, waiting for the right moment to pull strings that no one even realized existed…until now.
