A Mortal Song by Megan Crewe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Love, love, love A Mortal Song!
Sora is a Kami, one of the spiritual beings (able to turn solid or invisible and able to manipulate ki energy) living on Mt. Fuji, or so she thought.
On her 17th birthday, there’s an attack on the mountain, which sends Sora and her bodyguard, Takeo, fleeing to find a way to save the Kami.
Their quest takes them to Tokyo, and reveals a long-kept secret: Sora is not Kami. She was traded at birth to keep the true Kami princess safe, meaning she has an emotional struggle as she meets the girl who will take her place and save the world, and the parents who gave her up for this to happen.
The danger looms ever stronger as the days approach Obon, and the ghosts and demons who took over the mountain come closer to their insidious goal.
There is almost non-stop adventure, an adorable and heart-wrenching romance, and heart-stopping danger around every corner. The fantasy elements in this are gorgeous. There’s really not much I can say, because it was just so good I’m a little speechless.
The only complaint I have about the book is that it had an end, but the story still lives on in my mind. This one is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to anyone looking for an engaging, thrilling, beautiful, un-put-downable book!
