Shadow of the Fox is the first novel in a series of the same name by Julie Kagawa. I’m ashamed to say that I’m only now getting around to reading this novel – and man do I wish I had found time sooner. Because it is an excellent read!
Whoever holds all the parts of the Scroll of a Thousand prayers can have a wish granted – should they have it at the correct time and place, that is. With that moment nearing ever closer, countless people (humans and demons alike) scheme to get their hands on it.
Enter Yumeko. She’s half kitsune, and generally is happy to spend her days enjoying the world and teasing the monks who raised her. That is, until the day that her life was changed forever. Now she has a new task, one much greater in weight than she ever expected to have to carry.
Kage Tatsumi is a famous (or rather, infamous) demon hunter. He’s of the Shadow Clan, and follows all orders given to him. So naturally, he doesn’t hesitate when given the orders to track down and obtain part of the Scroll.
“One step at a time, little fox. The spider does not spin its web in a heartbeat, nor does the albatross fly across oceans with a few flaps of its wings. Many would consider what they do impossible, and yet, they still complete their tasks without fail, because they simply…Start.”
