Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa

I received this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

OMG! So good so good so good!

I loved this book! I love fantasy and I love Japanese inspired books and this had both!!!!

I really liked Yumeko. She was a strong girl and I loved her! She was rarely outed as a Kitsune so I guess she was really good a hiding her true self. I can’t quite imagine what she really looks like. How weird would it be to have fox ears and a tail?

Tatsumi was also really good. I felt really bad for him though.

He seems a lot older than he is because of it.

There were a lot of twists in this book. It started off very confusing and then got so much better.

The things I disliked was that it was very confusing for the first 5 chapters or so. You really have to pay attention to the synopsis or you can really easily get lost those first few chapters.

Also I’m not sure if it was an issue with my copy or it hasn’t been created yet but why are there two pages that simply say MAP TK in brackets? I’m assuming since the dedication is also missing that it means to come???

Also I really wish there had been a glossary and maybe some history about the creatures. This is only a personal wish not something I’m critiquing on.

I’m also a bit mad that in general Netgalley is biased towards Kindle. I own a kobo and quite often I have to deal with what I call wasted space issues that make it very difficult to read because of the small font. Rant done. Love this book. Hope I get accepted for the next one!!!
