Soul of the Sword returns with all my favourite characters.

One thousand years ago, a wish was made to the Harbinger of Change and a sword of rage and lightning was forged. Kamigoroshi. The Godslayer. It had one task: to seal away the powerful demon Hakaimono. Now he has broken free.

Kitsune shapeshifter Yumeko has one task: to take her piece of the ancient and powerful scroll to the Steel Feather temple in order to prevent the summoning of the Harbinger of Change, the great Kami Dragon who will grant one wish to whoever holds the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers. But she has a new enemy now. The demon Hakaimono, who for centuries was trapped in a cursed sword, has escaped and possessed the boy she thought would protect her, Kage Tatsumi of the Shadow Clan.

Hakaimono has done the unthinkable and joined forces with the Master of Demons in order to break the curse of the sword and set himself free. To overthrow the empire and cover the land in darkness, they need one thing: the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers. As the paths of Yumeko and the possessed Tatsumi cross once again, the entire empire will be thrown into chaos.

Enter for a chance to win a signed set of the Shadow of the Fox series.

Soul of the Sword (Shadow of the Fox, #2)

Soul of the Sword (Shadow of the Fox #2) by Julie Kagawa

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Soul of the Sword returns with all my favourite characters. Suki's ghost is still hanging around and Lady Satomi has been murdered. Less darkness to have to deal with.

We see Okame and Daisuke's mutual attraction deepen and blossom for one another. Yumeko has kept the piece of the dragon scroll safe and is still on her way to the Steel Feather Temple to deliver it as she journeys with her friends. Reika, the temple maiden and Master Jiro are travelling with Yumeko to protect her.
The demon Hakaimono has been set free from the sword Kamigoroshi and possessed Tatsumi the demon slayer. Yumeko wants desperately to save Tatsumi.

Lord Genno the master of demons is in search of a body so that he may come back to life in the land of Iwagoto. The 3 witches messed up a necromancy spell having only Genno 's head without a body. Hakaimono thinks it hilarious but makes no promises to join forces with Genno.

Lady Hanshou and Lord Seigetsu are another story. Lord Seigetsu appears more like a puppet master pulling the strings behind the entire story. It is interesting to know he has so much power. So far it looks like he is a force for good and not evil but he's still a mystery.
