Editorial Reviews

Review

"Risuko is an artfully crafted novel that evokes a heavy sense of place and enchantment.... Risuko's development and evolution are fascinating to watch in this powerful and relentless coming-of-age adventure."--Foreword Reviews (spotlight review)

"Tight, exciting, and thoughtful... The characters are nicely varied and all the pieces fit into place deftly" -- Kirkus Reviews

"It is easy to invest in the characters, and once the reader starts this book, it's almost impossible to put it down. Risuko goes through a lot of character growth throughout the book. An entertaining story with excellent writing and haunting descriptions, a relatable heroine, and fast-paced writing." -- InD'tale Magazine

"Vividly portrayed, flush with cultural detail, and smoothly written." -- BookLife


2016 BAIPA Great Reads Awards -- Best in Class

About the Author

David Kudler is an author, editor, and publisher living just north of San Francisco, California with his wife, teacher/author Maura Vaughn, his author-to-be daughters, and their (apparently) non-literary cats. He is best known as the editor of Joseph Campbell's The Hero with a Thousand Faces.

His children's picture book The Seven Gods of Luck was adapted from a Japanese folktale. Two books that he edited for Joseph Campbell Foundation (Sake & Satori and Myths of Light) explore Japanese mythology and religion. He has written about places other than Japan -- but his imagination keeps returning to the Land of the Rising Sun.

Risuko is his first novel.
