When the dark dragon Kage learns of her true nature, he seeks to strike a blow that will destroy his noble brother, and Rei-Rei, forever.

As a Media Developer, Game Designer, and aspiring writer myself, I have worked on and with a number of projects with like minded themes over the years. I have been nothing short of inspired by not only this Novel, but all of Mrs. Harvey's Fantastic works of fiction. Her ability to express, visualize, and define vast worlds and diverse cultures both ancient, and mystical, has been nothing short of vivid, impressive, and often times awe inspiring to say the least. Her current novel, "7 Times a Woman" is by far the best piece she has ever written and in many ways rivals other Best-selling Historical Fantasies, such as "A Bridge of Birds", "Kushiels Dart", "Young Samurai", "Mistress of Rome", and even the now heavily proclaimed "Game of Thrones" series. As a single stand alone novel, this book stands far above the rest, both in content, historical fact, mystery, and very deep, very old, traditional legends of ancient Southern Japan. With a gripping "tail" of love split between two paradigms, the storyline details the trials and tribulations of a war torn feudal society, and the woven souls bound to repeat history, time and again, until a lesson was learned. Their desire for justice, retribution, and eternal unrest, is bound into the core cast of characters who will leave you speechless, intrigued, and often in tears, page after page, as you read, and watch within your own mind, this moving story, about love, ambition, revenge, and family honor.
Haunting, absolutely haunting. I love this book and found myself thinking about it for days after I finished it. Harvey does an amazing job of drawing you into the story of the fox-spirit Lilia and Sha-Tano, her dragon lover. The world is entrancing and the story is unforgettable. I can't wait to read Ms. Harvey's next book!
