    • At Yomi's Gate is a big fantasy novel set in mythical ancient Japan. The story has some firm foundations in authentic folk legends. The first thing you should probably know is that "Yomi" is the ancient Japenese land of the dead. It's something like a gloomy limbo where the dead go before being reborn into their next life. Another word worth knowing before you begin is "Yokai" - an umbrella term for folkloric supernatural monsters and demons. There is rather a lot of Yokai in this book.The story [...]

    • This book is written in a very unique style. I was unfamiliar with the author and went into it without high expectations. I was pleasantly surprised. It is expressed as it would be if a Japanese person with a thick accent would narrate in English. The book is highly detailed and descriptive. It is an exceptionally good fantasy story line. If you enjoy fantasy I believe you will enjoy this.

    • The mythology of this book, based in ancient Japanese folklore, was very unique and at times overwhelming. It was definitely a very welcome break from our usual Euro-centric folklore of goblins, elves, ogres, and dragons.

    • Fan of Cassandra Clare? She’s about the only paranormal urban fantasy author whose books I enjoy. What if this genre went to samurai era Japan? You’d have At Yomi’s Gate. Sakura, Fumito, and Yoko are embroiled in a warlord plot at control. He tortures, maimes, and murders all who have betrayed him. Including his own family. The warlord has captured a fire demon and yields the supernatural force as a military weapon. What a great story! I’ve encountered plenty of werewolves, vampires (bot [...]

    • Disclaimer:I have received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This is an amazing story that kept me enthralled and reading well into the night.The audience follows a band of unlikely heroes — a tiny woman who'd been abused most of her life, a story-teller who is also Byronic (IMHO), an uncommonly tall priestess, and a woman with a massive chip on her shoulder. There is also an outcast. a person considered filthy and beneath everyone else, who can't read but has taught hi [...]
