When I started this book I thought this is going to be a long read. I started reading and became so engaged in the characters and immersed in the backdrop of Japan before I knew it I was at the end of the book. Regrettably. I think if I could want for anything out of this pleasant read it would be more of the dating side of the relationship between Dana and Sorahiko. So much of their time together was overshadowed with angst and intrigue from outside forces. There was some open-ended questions w ...more

I typically do not read this particular genre but I absolutely enjoyed this story. The author did a great job being descriptive and I feel the story was well written. For the life of me I could not find myself to like Dana who is the main character. To be in a foreign country engulfed in a completely different culture, she seemed very arrogant and like a know it all. I kept trying to give her the benefit of the doubt due to her young age.
This story really opened my perspective on reading fictio

Thank you to Keri Moore and Tethys Night Sky Publishing for giving me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

I’ll be honest - this is not the type of story I will typically read, so it was kind of hard for me to get into. I had a lot of trouble adjusting to Dana’s character. She goes through a lot, but as someone with a more quiet personality myself, I found a lot of her louder reactions and choices to be strange or almost rude. Especially considering she’s a guest in a place

The Fix Demon's Kiss

This was a great read. This was the first BWAM\Demon book that I have read that told more about the mythos part of why Japanese demons do what they do. Can't wait for a follow up book about her sister.

I stumbled across Keri Moore while she was promoting her upcoming urban fantasy release on IG back in September 2020. I began following her and expressed interest in reading her book upon its release. Guess what happened, she released the book!!!! Let me tell y'all I got my fantasy fix with this debut novel!!! The Fox Demon's Kiss is absolutely captivating from beginning to end. This book is not attached to any book club reading list; however, she is a perfect candidate for #FeatThaUnknown!

I truly wanted to love this story. It has everything, a touch of fantasy, a visit to one of my favorite places in the world (Japan), culture, a BIPOC protagonist, romance, beautiful vistas, a touch of magic. The story is intriguing, but I struggled with the execution, as I felt slowed down and disconnected by the details of every moment and every thought. This lead to me not connecting with the characters as much as I would like, because I was in their heads rather than their hearts.

I wanted to like it.

I so wanted to like it. It has a good premise but it just doesn't come together. The biggest issue is the lack of background information on the yokai. The next issue, Dana is hard to like. She spends a great deal of energy going over the same ground. It wasn't bad but it could've been so much better.
