Andre is working on his doctoral thesis on Japanese folklore. When he is out collecting stories, he hears about Abe no Seimei, the son of a magical fox and a powerful magician. The stories claim that Seimei is still alive and that he cannot die. What Andre doesn´t expect is to actually stumble upon a man who calls himself Seimei, but when he realizes he has found the real deal, he will do anything to get Seimei´s life story.
The author weaves an interesting story about the magicians, and all the little spirits and demons, that is a big part of the Japanese folklore. I love how the creature´s and the people are described. I can really see them for my inner eye. What is somewhat misleading though in the blurb is that the story focuses very little on Andre and Seimei. When the story of Seimei´s parents and his early life has been told, and think that you will get more of Andre and/or Seimei´s story, you realize that there are only three pages left of the book. This was unfortunately one of those short stories, where you get a lot of background story, that never really comes to a conclusion and too much is left hanging. The story that was there was
lovely though, and I believe would be enjoyable even for those who might not know a whole lot about Japanese folklore.
Fire Demon by K.B. Forrest
TBR Reviewer: Brutally Honest
The beginning was interesting but with the characters Monasap and Rusasap it got kind of hard to follow with their names begin so close. From there were thrown into a different scene with a new set of characters. It was very confusing the way this played out and it really dampered the beginning of the story.
Once we meet Korin, things went from confusing to freaking fantastic. She was great with a sword, brave and in the sights of a first generation demon. Vorak is that bad ass demon who is slave to one man because of a collar around his neck. It was an interesting concept with twists and turns that really made for a great solid book. The scenes, however, were very jumpy. That plus the beginning issues made me rate this books with four stars. But that’s four solid stars. I would certainly recommend Fire Demon and I am sure to read more by this author in the future!
