Lincoln Black is nogitsune--a “field fox” cast aside by his family, an outsider among the hidden community of American kitsune descended from the shapeshifting fox-wives of Japanese folklore.

With his animalistic hungers threatening to take him over, Linc's forced into questionable alliances with his cunning cousin Jin, Magnussen, the s ...more

What happens when the guy who can't go home realizes he has to? Lincoln Black is the perfect outcast, a "field fox" forced by his own gnawing hunger to re-enter the world that cast him out.

Lovely prose: elegant in places with a strong (but not too strong) sense of humor and snark. Engaging world-building that taught me something about a culture that isn't my own. Interesting, dynamic characters. Well worth it!

This book. It's lovely. I think my comments noted how beautiful the writing is. I really think this would be amazing as a graphic novel, just to bring to life the beautiful world the author has created.

I have to admit that I was confused a lot of the time, but I think that was more my fault than the author's. I think I got so caught up in the writing that I sort of missed the details, if that makes any sense at all.

I recommend this to anyone who is interested in urban fantasy.
