Overview

My pulse races until my heartbeats become uncountable. I black out, my thoughts erased by a blissful agony, a euphoria of pain. I scream—and it’s the howl of a fox.

Tavian Kimura has never forgotten his kitsune mother, a shape-shifting Japanese fox spirit who abandoned him as a baby. While visiting his adoptive grandparents in Japan, Tavian learns his mother is still alive and that a faceless ghost is haunting him at every turn. The ghost’s warning is clear: Leave now. It is almost too late.

After a pack of vicious dog spirits attacks him, Tavian discovers that his paranormal fox powers are failing, killing him at an accelerating pace. Desperate to find a cure, he must track down his kitsune mother in Tokyo’s dangerous underworld. She is Tavian’s last chance to survive not only the fatal illness, but also the dog spirits who hunt him relentlessly.

Praise for the Other Novels:

“Other has it all; love, shifters, pookas, and nail-biting action.”—Carrie Jones, New York Times bestselling author of Need and Captivate

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Kincy serves up this series entry blessedly free from the Other novels' usual heavy-handed racism metaphors, finally offering the characters a straightforward action-adventure. Tavian, the romantic object of Other (2010), is returning to a Japan he hasn't seen since he was 6 years old. What should be a routine visit to the adoptive grandparents he's never met is haunted--literally--by a faceless ghost, a noppera-bo, that seems to be tailing him. Tavian is a kitsune, a fox shifter, and his accompanying girlfriend, Gwen, is half-pooka. There is much less bigotry against the shape-shifting Others in Tokyo than Tavian experienced in rural Washington, but there's plenty of other things to worry about. Shape-shifting gangsters keep trying to attack Tavian, for no obvious reason. Tavian fights a mysterious illness he was left with after his adventures in Other, and possibly only some kitsune shrine maidens can help. Everything seems to tie back to the mother who abandoned Tavian when he was just a child, an ignorant fox kit freezing in the woods. Tavian's need to know his past leads him on supernatural adventures around Tokyo, where he discovers satisfyingly predictable revelations. An enjoyable, mystical coming-of-age, complete with quick getaways, motorcycle chases and no distraction from the already-established, comfortable romance. (Paranormal romance. 13-15)
