Night of the Dragon Blog Tour

Hello, all!

I've been a huge fan of Julie Kagawa's Shadow of the Fox series since it first came out, so I'm incredibly excited to be a part of the blog tour for the final installment, Night of the Dragon. You can find my reviews for the other two books here and here. Big thank you to Inkyard Press for having me!

Yumeko, a Kitsune shapeshifter, has given up the final piece of the sacred Scroll of a Thousand Prayers in order to save her friends from a terrible death at the hands of Genno, the Master of Demons. Now, Yumeko and her ragtag band of companions must journey to the Moon Islands in a desperate attempt to stop Genno from calling forth the Great Kami Dragon, and making a wish that will plunge the entire empire into chaos and destruction.

With so many obstacles standing in their way, one of the biggest hurdles the group must face comes from within. Kage Tatsumi was once the deadliest assassin in the Shadow Clan, now he's forced to share his body with a dangerous demon named Hakaimono. For the most part, Tatsumi has a grip on the demon inside, but there are moments when Hakaimono's blood rage is too much. The pair agree to work together, but they soon find out their combined power and skills may not be enough to help Yumeko overcome what's ahead. Especially when the group discover there's been a shadowy figure following their every move, and he has his own plans in store.

This was an action packed rollercoaster right from the jump. There wasn't any slow building, you were thrust right into the fray, and I loved it. I've always said this series plays out like an anime, and this was no exception. The character development and growth of Yumeko and Tatsumi was wonderful, and watching their relationship blossom was both heartwarming and heartbreaking. As I said, the action in this story was full throttle. Every time you turned the page, there was some evil to vanquish or some new obstacle the group needed to face. Whatever Kagawa threw out, Yumeko and gang met it with humor and heart. I sort of figured out the little twists before they happened, so that was the only reason why this wasn't a full 5 star read for me, but either way I enjoyed every minute and thought this was such a solid end to the series.

Rating: 4.5/5
