Publisher's Summary

One thousand years ago, a wish was made and a sword of rage and lightning was forged. Kamigoroshi. The Godslayer. A weapon powerful enough to seal away the formidable demon Hakaimono.

Now he has broken free.

Kitsune shapeshifter Yumeko has one task: to take her piece of the ancient and powerful Scroll of a Thousand Prayers to the Steel Feather temple in order to prevent the summoning of the Harbinger of Change, the great Kami Dragon who will grant one wish to whomever holds the scroll. But she has a new enemy now, more dangerous than any she has yet faced. The demon Hakaimono is free at last, and he has possessed the very person Yumeko trusted to protect her from the evil at her heels, Kage Tatsumi of the Shadow Clan.

Hakaimono has only one goal: to break the curse of the sword and set himself free to rain chaos and destruction over the land forevermore. To do so, he will need the scroll. And Yumeko is the only one standing in his way.

Wonderful Continuation of the Story

This installment was definitely a continuation of the previous story. I’m not sure it would really make sense if you hadn’t read the first book. We learned more about the history and geography of Iwagoto in this book. I loved how much more we learned about the characters in this book. I love getting the first person narrative from different characters as it gives you a unique perspective, and the multi-narration cast really helps to distinguish each section.

Entertaining story, excellent production

The story was gripping and never dull nor predictable . Exceptional world building with balanced adventure and character building . Once you start listening you won’t want to put it down. The performance was as good as it gets. Unlike some performances you could easily discern who is who. The performance was the right tone to remain interesting throughout .
