    “Your Highness,” she said. “I’ve already explained that no matter how much you might give me, it’s no good to me if I’m dead. Forgive my rudeness, but I must speak plainly. You have dealt me an unfair and cowardly blow.”
    The queen went pale and began to tremble violently. “What do you mean?”
    “I saved the prince’s life, yet you reward me by taking my life. What would you call that but unfair and cowardly?”


    On the prosperous, island kingdom of Yogo, the divine king Mikado rules absolute, his veins carrying the precious blood of the god Ten no kami. When the Mikado’s son, the Second Prince Chagnum, is thrown from his carriage in a freak accident, he’s nearly killed; luckily for Chagnum

A simple stroll by the manga section of any well-stocked bookstore will put your mind to rest on that particular matter. But what the kids aren't reading these days is Japanese prose. How many novels for kids, translated from Japanese, can you come up with off the top of your head? Living as we do at a time when children's literature is profitable and all encompassing, you would think that pu

    This book is slightly old now, and it was published in the time where diverse ownvoices fantasy often wasn’t given the time of the day, so it’s not that well-known either. But honestly it’s brilliant, and needs more love! And as Asian fantasy and diverse fantasy overall is becoming so incredibly popular, with releases like Girls of Paper and Fire and Flame in the Mist, this novel is perfect f

    (1) has everything (action, drama, fantasy, politic, slice of life, romance); and
    (2) makes all of them work.

The prose is smooth, although a little flat, and the book relied a little too heavily on introspection as a method of relaying information, I think. But it was really gripping, and wow, the expertise of the author really shines through in the worldbuilding. I was also surprised at how well the themes of colonialism and such were handled - and how clearly deliberately thought out they were. This ain't your standard poor lost prince narrative. Uehashi is obviously conscious of this stuff and knows what she's doing.

    Need I even mention the awesomeness of the whole AWESOME HARD-BITTEN BADASS SPEAR-WIELDING BODYGUARD LADY for a main character thing? Or the bonus of her gentle healer figure of a male love interest? Who she can't seem to settle down w

She does, but I like the book for many reasons besides her. What I loved most was the way two factions who start out the book at odds with each other wind up learning that they're actually on the same side against a real enemy. I liked the ultimate message of how two sides had to combine two pieces of a legend in order to defeat the Plot Thing.

    Balsa rescues, protects, nurtures, and trains a boy in this story, which combines so many elements dear to me: women as rescuers, women rescuing men, the juxtapos

I figured that a new review was in order, especially since my opinion of this book has improved.

    After Balsa, a female bodyguard, rescues young Prince Chagum from drowning, she finds herself being roped into being his protector. Chagum is believed to be possessed by the same creature that once caused a terrible drought. It's thought that the drought will be averted if Chagum is killed, so the Mikado himself has ordered several assassination attempts against

    精霊の守り人 PDF Ð Hardcover 精霊の守り人 ebok, 精霊の守り人精霊の守り人 PDFEPUBThe Moribito (= Guardian) series is one of my favorite works, not only of Asian Fantasy, but of the fantasy genre in general. The world-building, the characters, the story, everything about it is not only, imho, original and creative, but also worked perfectly for me. I will try to express what fascinated me the first time I visited the worlds of Nayugu and Sagu, and what still impresses me after reading (and watching) the story multiple times.

    First of all there's the world-building. The book is barely 250 pages long, yet Nahoko Uehashi seemingly effortlessly creates a world more complex and more realistic than others manage in a whole series. I believe that due to her pro
