Shiro is faced with an almost impossible task and has little resources with which to accomplish it. With little choice left to him otherwise he accepts the task and begins doing what he can in order to try and get profanely villagers in shape to delay and weaken a trained army. It's a grueling, thankless task especially for one of Shiro's standing.
Meanwhile Seiko and her brother must not only try to find ways to fight the army bearing down on them, but they must also deal with pressures from their own allies as well.
Compelling characters mixed with political drama and military action made for a very enjoyable and fascinating book.
I like that the author did more then just include a glossary, they took the time to explain how some of the words used in the book differed from their original usage. Plenty of author ms change foreign words from their current or historical meanings while writing a book but few take a moment to explain that they have done so and what the original usage and meaning of the word is.
This was a compelling story with each character's voice easy to distinguish and their role in the overall plot never being diminished by others or growing dull.
I highly recommend this book for fans of anthropomorphic characters or Japanese inspired books and I look forward to reading the next one when it comes out.
Set in a fantasy Feudal Japanese-esque setting, this novel tells a tale of warring wolf clans and the intrigue that goes along with it. It focuses on two main protagonists and we view the world from their perspective-, a rōnin samurai by the name of Shiro, who's called on by his Daimyo to execute what seems like an impossible task. And an onna-bugeisha by the name of Seiko (-sister to said Daimyo), looking to prove her worth as a warrior on the battlefield. Both characters are really likable in their own way and feel solid and well rounded, with their own distinct personalities, flaws and takes on the events that surround them. The side characters are all very likable and detestable where appropriate as well. It very briefly touches on the other species that inhabit the world, and while it does so to establish certain facts and ask certain questions, it does leave you wanting to know more about those as well.
While there are some genuine goosebump and laugh out loud moments scattered throughout the book, it's tone remains consistent throughout. It tells it's tale and doesn't waste any time on useless fluff, but also doesn't rush through anything. All in all, this is definitely a book worth reading. And an author worth checking out.
