I love all of Chris Ward's books, and am so excited to read this new series set in Japan!
The story is told by multiple characters, both adults and teens, and I found the relationships (past and present) between different people really interesting.
The setting was well-described and I had a clear idea where all the characters were at different times. Very important in this type of action story.
I really liked all the mythology, including the character Professor Crow and his creations. (Won't give too much away about that). I admit, I thought this was a YA book, but it does actually have a lot of adult content. It suited the story though. And finally, the ending left off in a great place to follow on to the next book 'The Castle of all Nightmares', which I will be reading next.
The story is about a school group that traveled into the mountains of Japan to visit a study camp in British Heights- an out of place museum, theater and more. Its owned by Mr. Forbes, a s'diddi billionaire who cares for his precious antiquities more than the people paying to visit them. Students are suddenly trapped in a white-out snow storm, doubled over from an illness I shall not name, since I don't believe in SPOILERS and hunted by something that comes out of Edgar Allen Poe's, The Raven!
To be honest, the only reason I finished this book is because the author promised me a monster. The characters were a bit drab but strong enough in Jun and Akane to make me command my eyes show me to the ending... or new beginning. Other than that, I read about a bunch of foolish teenagers who (periodically) did the same thing to their British instructors as to me and my friends when I lived in Japan: They spoke ugly words in their native tongue while pretending to be kind and respectful. That part was true to life to me. Ugh...
