Summary of the Book:

One thousand years ago, a wish was made to the Harbinger of Change and a sword of rage and lightning was forged. Kamigoroshi. The Godslayer. It had one task: to seal away the powerful demon Hakaimono.

Now he has broken free.

Kitsune shapeshifter Yumeko has one task: to take her piece of the ancient and powerful scroll to the Steel Feather temple in order to prevent the summoning of the Harbinger of Change, the great Kami Dragon who will grant one wish to whomever holds the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers. But she has a new enemy now. The demon Hakaimono, who for centuries was trapped in a cursed sword, has escaped and possessed the boy she thought would protect her, Kage Tatsumi of the Shadow Clan.

Hakaimono has done the unthinkable and joined forces with the Master of Demons in order to break the curse of the sword and set himself free. To overthrow the empire and cover the land in darkness, they need one thing: the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers. As the paths of Yumeko and the possessed Tatsumi cross once again, the entire empire will be thrown into chaos.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I read the first book for this series and posted a review for this last year. This continued my love for the books. I am ready for the third book in the trilogy. That does not come out until March of next year. It kind of had me wondering about spirits or beings being trapped in objects in this case it is a sword. I have all kind of feeling about this book and I love the Japanese Mythology that is in this series. I love flowing the journey of the characters.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
