really liked it
Read from September 08 to 10, 2013

In his award-winning debut, Martin shows a talent for writing tense, well-choreographed action scenes and witty banter. I learned a lot about the various supernatural beings of Japan, such as Japanese werewolves (okami) and yurei. Attentive readers can also pick up information about the more mundane aspects of Japanese culture, especially school life. This book may contain the first ever literary reference in English to the dreaded "kancho." I'm looking forward to reading book #2 in the series.
