I received this book for free from a Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Hello everyone I hope you all have an amazing and lovely day today!
What are you guys planning to read this weekend? I’m not sure yet, there are so MANY books I want to read😆 but I’m definitely planning to read something!
Do you like to read more than one book at the same time?📚
I just finished reading one of my new all time favorite books EVER. Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa was amazing and EPIC. There are so many things I loved about this book, and to be honest I’m not even sure where to start, the book is so good I don’t even know what to say.
This story is about Yumeko who is a Kitsune, a half Fox. She has been living her entire life at the Silent Wind Temple and knows nothing about the outside world. She has amazing abilities and loves to make pranks but everything changes when Master Isao tells her the story of the Kami Dragon and that she must protect a scroll, that if it ends in the wrong hands the world would change as she knows it now…for bad.
Shadow of The Fox is a story full of mythology, powerful demons, ghosts, spirits, samurais… It’s a world that, while it was filled of powerful creatures and terrifying witches, I didn’t want to abandon. I have never read a story like this one before, it was… so magical. AND THE ENDING WAS PERFECT.
I love books where the characters have to go on an epic quest, and this one didn’t disappoint. Yumeko met Tatsumi, a boy who was looking for the scroll as wel,l and while she doesn’t tell him that she has it, she lies to him and asks him for help. Tatsumi is a demonslayer – HOW COOL IS THAT?! – He never shows his emotions because if he does the demon inside his weapon could posses him! But I just loved to see how little by little he starts to change because of Yumeko. He starts to question everything he knows and… well he’s amazing!
One of the things I absolutely loved and adored about this book are the characters. Yumeko, Tatsumi, Okame, Daisuke are so special to me, they made me laugh SO MANY TIMES and surprised me with their courage whenever they tried to save those they encountered on their way. Also, I loved the fact that the personalities of these characters are so different from each other! I really liked seeing how Okame annoyed Tatsumi non-stop, he’s definitely a character you will love as soon as you meet him in the story.
Shadow of the Fox is a book you won’t want to miss. It’s definitely one of the best books I have read this year and I honestly can’t wait to read the sequel. Julie’s writing style made me feel part of a story I didn’t want to leave❤️
