Soul of the Sword Reviews

  • Mlpmom (Book Reviewer)

    Wow! What a ride! Full review to come.

    *EDITED TO ADD REVIEW*

    Kagawa has an amazing ability to bring her fantasy worlds and characters to life. So much so that they seem to breath off the very pages you are reading. You get completely immersed into her stories, into their lives, and into the danger that always seems to lurk in the dark and magical realms she is so good at creating.

    I fell in love with Shadow of the Fox and couldn't have been more anxious or eager to get my hands on Soul of the Swo

    Kagawa has an amazing ability to bring her fantasy worlds and characters to life. So much so that they seem to breath off the very pages you are reading. You get completely immersed into her stories, into their lives, and into the danger that always seems to lurk in the dark and magical realms she is so good at creating.

    I fell in love with Shadow of the Fox and couldn't have been more anxious or eager to get my hands on Soul of the Sword.

    It didn't take me long to once again fall seamlessly into the very heart, the very center of the world that is this series. Totally invested in all that had happened last book and more than excited to find out where the story would take all of my beloved characters next.

    With ore action, more danger, more risks, and more tension around every corner, not to mention bad guys, myths, legends, and lore and Soul of the Sword not only lived up the Shadow of the Fox, but I think it surpassed it.

    Move over, Harry Potter, fox shape-shifter Yumeko has come to town. I just finished this cinematic YA fantasy sequel to SHADOW OF THE FOX and I want the third book RIGHT NOW (I didn't think it was possible for Julie Kagawa to pull off a sequel that was even better than the first book, but she has - in spades). This book has the visual splendor of a Miyazaki film (think SPIRITED AWAY), the brilliant characterization of the Harry Potter books and the action-excitement of an Avengers movie. Author

    Move over, Harry Potter, fox shape-shifter Yumeko has come to town. I just finished this cinematic YA fantasy sequel to SHADOW OF THE FOX and I want the third book RIGHT NOW (I didn't think it was possible for Julie Kagawa to pull off a sequel that was even better than the first book, but she has - in spades). This book has the visual splendor of a Miyazaki film (think SPIRITED AWAY), the brilliant characterization of the Harry Potter books and the action-excitement of an Avengers movie. Author Kagawa has mined Japanese mythology for the most incredible magics, creatures and villians, bringing them to vivid, Technicolor life (particularly love the teenaged twin scorpion-yokai girls). The story's main villain, demon Hakaimono, is by turns terrifying and sardonically hilarious. And there is an unexpected love scene that had me cheering (bravo, Julie Kagawa). My highest recommendation. #TeamYumeko

    This second book continues directly after the final events of the first book. We find Yumeko and her crew on the road to the Steel Feather temple in the hopes of protecting the last pieces of the Dragon Scroll.

    Y'all know a

    is one of my all-time favorite tropes so this storyline is right up my alley.

    The team of characters setting forth on this mission together makes this story for me. They are so well drawn, their personalities playing off one another perfectly. It seriously makes me want to be a part of the group. I don't care how outright scary and dangerous it gets!

    While I wasn't quite as smitten with this installment as I was with the first book, it is still definitely worth all five stars in my eyes. As second books go, this one upped the stakes of the quest and left off in an exceptionally intriguing part of the story.

    I'm not really quite sure how I will hold off until March 2020 for Book 3. I need more Yumeko, Okame, Tatsumi and friends NOW!

    It's almost unfair of Kagawa to do this to us. How dare she write such perfection?!

    I would love to shout from the rooftops how much I love this series but that could get embarrassing. For now, I will be content with recommending the heck out of it to all my YA Fantasy-reading friends.

    Also, legit anime come to life. The atmosphere and tone of this is so dynamic, it leaps off the page and into your minds-eye so clearly. It's honestly tremendous.

    I want to thank the publisher, Inkyard Press, for providing me with a copy of this to read and review. It was one of my most anticipated books of the year and it certainly did not disappoint. If you are sleeping on this series, wake up, pick it up and join me in a fangirling!

    things that make this book great:

    - the array of characters is so diverse, each bringing something different to the story; but they work so harmoniously that, if one of them was missing, i think the story would greatly suffer. and i think that is such a feat to accomplish for a writer.

    - the japanese mythology and folklore is the heart of this. and the story is set up in a really clever way where you know you are encountering really old tales of magic and wonder, but it has such a modern and lively feel to it. its so exciting.

    - there is such an immersive quality to kagawas writing. its been such a long time since i could so vividly imagine the story, with scenes so descriptive its as if a film was playing inside my mind. its just makes the entire reading experience go above and beyond.

    and although the journey taken throughout this book was extremely enjoyable, my anxiety levels are through the roof because of how this ended.

    seriously cant come soon enough!
