You have a goddess. She has a `teenage' daughter hidden away. Daughter rebels, accidentally steals Mom's Godkiller Sword, escapes to Earth. Culture shock ensues, but it's okay, she finds a couple plucky human friends who teach Clueless Daughter about the Meaning of Friendship and all that. She has the obligatory snarky talking animal friend/guide/comic relief. The obligatory Big Bad who want Mom's Godkiller Sword so he can kill some gods his own self. Daughter starts out selfish and stupid, but over the course of her trials and tribulations, she learns Important Lessons about friendship and responsibility and all that other stuff.
So...yeah, basically, it will either make anime fans squeal with glee or sneer because "It's *so* derivative, <insert favorite anime here> did it *so* much better!" For us readers *not* a huge fan of anime, it's a quick fun read...definitely more Young Adult than his Bill The Vampire series, but personally, I think it's great to see an author able to competently shift genres and focus. It's well-written, a bit formulaic (no surprises, even for non-anime fans), and good light fun reading.
And if there's no character here to even begin to compare to Gan from `Bill The Vampire'...well, honestly, there's only *one* Gan. (Although, I must confess to occasional errant images of Gan showing up, punching Midnite's Daughter in the face and stealing the Godkiller Sword. Why? Because she's *Gan* and she *can*!) Some might complain that the characters are a little flat and two-dimensional, but honestly, I get the impression that was intentional on the author's part.
So, while I can't recommend this as enthusiastically as I do the author's `Bill The Vampire' series, I can say it's not a waste of time or money and I have no regrets over my purchase...even if I'm not a huge fan of anime.
I can't wait to see what happens next.
I received an advanced review copy and was asked for an honest opinion.
I like the way Rick looks at our time and ways through the eyes of a person of the past.
His humor keeps making me laugh.
And I learned about taco rice, a culinary experience I have to try.
This book is NOTHING like that. (That's OK, I promise)
The story of Midnight is in the vein of Japanese fantasy. It's from the point of view of the two main female protagonists.
The story flowed great and while NOT a Bill the Vampire story, is a wonderful story and beginning of a new series.
The characters are well thought out, the mythology of this new world Rick has created is well presented. The rules are set and followed as we learn what is happening with Kisaki and her travels away from home. While this might be better suited for YA readers, it didn't feel like only a YA book.
I received an early copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
