I’m really, really enjoying these books. The details the author is providing are just fascinating. Info about traditions, clothes, weapons, lifestyles, and more all transport me to 12th century Japan perfectly.The story is turning out to be really excellent.
Again, Lawrence delivers a rich and satisfying tale. Hard for me to chose what I love most about her books though it is probably, her lush descriptions of setting and character. I never feel I am reading her books as much as watching a movie as the story unfolds.
Once this series is complete, it will rank with Buffy the Vampire Slayers seasons 8, 9, etc. as a heroic female adventure worth waiting for one installment at a time.
