really liked it

Okiku kicks! What an evilicious read. It is a story of a young girl that had died 300 years ago by a man who tossed her body down a well. She hunts murderers - child killers. When a young boy with very strange tattoos that carry an evil secret moves into a new neighborhood, he gets her eye. As the story moves along, they travel to a remote valley in Aomori, Japan where doll rituals and exorcisms claim.... Great YA thriller and I loved the Japanese myths/folklore that were added. Rin knows how to vividly portray the settings so the reader can actually taste the book and all of its gore. Excellent job Rin! Looking forward to the sequel. Thanks for your imagination!
