I really enjoyed reading these interconnected short stories. They follow the life of a minor court noble who solved mysteries involving Yokai, Kami and other beings of Japanese lore. I enjoyed the characters, almost all of them are well fleshed out and rounded. I'm looking forward to more stories and perhaps a novel or three.Was this review helpful?

Fantastic book set during the Heian era of Japan, when the world was shared with ghosts, demons, and other monsters. Impoverished nobleman Yamada no Goji is a bit of a demon hunter, a drunk, and a man with surprising insights into life. This compilation of short stories is a wonderful introduction to this world. Hope the planned sequel comes out soon.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
