Recommends it for: Anyone interested in a good quality story using a mix of History, Legend, and Fantasy
As a Media Developer, Game Designer, and aspiring writer myself, I have worked on and with a number of projects with like minded themes over the years. I have been nothing short of inspired by not only this Novel, but all of Mrs. Harvey's Fantastic works of fiction. Her ability to express, visualize, and define vast worlds and diverse cultures both ancient, and mystical, has been nothing short of vivid, impressive, and often times awe inspiring to say the least.

Her current novel, "7 Times a Wom

Like any other book I read, it was hard to get into until I read the basis for the story. Now I am reading the reincarnations and each one is perfectly different. Definitely not reading the same thing over and over. Its a story in a story and yet all tied together. I will recommend this book to friends.

The spirited kitsune Rei-Rei is content in her life as the lover of the god Inari, but the goddess Benzai-ten has other plans for her. Rei-Rei's assignment is "to tame a dragon," namely the arrogant Sha Tano, who lives as a human lord in feudal Japan. The task will take many years, and is fraught with danger from Sha Tano's twin brother and from their own inner demons.

The title, Seven Times a Woman, refers to the seven times Rei-Rei is born into human form and crosses paths with Sha Tano. Sara M

I've read this book a couple years ago. This is such a moving tale. I felt a personal connection to this book as a follower of Inari.

The lore is authentic in regards to the deities in the book. Each one is accurate to everything I've researched in the past.

The characters are believable in the way they act and interact. There is a lot of emotional times in this book that made it hard to read. I had to pause several times to balance my emotions.

The life Reiri is a sad one and you will feel for her
