School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up

A synopsis for those new to the series acquaints readers with 16-year-old Momoka Futami, orphaned four years earlier in an accident that also took her memory. She seeks to learn the truth about her past and travels to Mitsurugi City, home of her father's very powerful relatives who offer to take her in. There Momoka is introduced to the eight spiritual swords and their masters, as well as her own spiritual sword Susukaze. She also learns of her part in a future battle. The book follows the teen as she attempts to find answers to her questions surrounding the deaths of her family members. She visits their gravesite, where she encounters what appears to be her dead sister and, for the first time, she unsheathes her spiritual sword. This episode is probably the most exciting scene in the book. It is difficult to keep track of the numerous characters in this story, which include the eight spiritual sword masters, the four sacred sword-wielders, and numerous supporting cast members. There is even a guide to the assorted Mitsurugi cats. Without warning, new characters suddenly appear in the story line. Flipping back to the cast listing becomes tiresome and slows down whatever momentum may be building. The plot seems to meander in several directions and often becomes difficult to follow.-Barbara M.
