    Inhaltsangabe

    On a mountainside at the edge of the Kaigenese Empire live the most powerful warriors in the world, superhumans capable of raising the sea and wielding blades of ice. For hundreds of years, the fighters of the Kusanagi Peninsula have held the Empire's enemies at bay, earning their frozen spit of land the name "The Sword of Kaigen".

    Born into Kusanagi's legendary Matsuda family, f14-year-old Mamoru has always known his purpose: To master his family's fighting techniques and defend his homeland. But when an outsider arrives and pulls back the curtain on Kaigen's alleged age of peace, Mamoru realizes that he might not have much time to become the fighter he was bred to be. Worse, the empire he was bred to defend may stand on a foundation of lies.

    Misaki told herself that she left the passions of her youth behind when she married into the Matsuda house. Determined to be a good housewife and mother, she hid away her sword, along with everything from her days as a fighter in a faraway country. But with her growing son asking questions about the outside world, the threat of an impending invasion looming across the sea, and her frigid husband grating on her nerves, Misaki finds the fighter in her clawing its way back to the surface.

    When the winds of war reach their peninsula, will the Matsuda family have the strength to defend their empire? Or will they tear each other apart before the true enemies even reach their shores?

    PRONOUNCIATION

    The story is simply amazing. Thoughtfull, with well realized characters and an interesting plot, the story is a pure success. But one big negative point is the narration. Generally, Andrew Tell does a good job, but the titles, which are orinigally Japanese are almost all mispronounced and it GRATES. How could it be that no one bothered to quality check this? The -kun almost sounds like a vey bad word, -chan rhymes with man and -sama fluctuates like it is part of the actual names. It feels like noone bothered to tell Andrew Tell that these titles are rooted in an actual culture and have a CORRECT pronounciation and aren't a result of M.L. Wangs imagination.

    Japanese pronunciations completely off

    The book is amazing, however they should've considered a narrator with at least minor knowlegde of Japanese name pronunciation, or at least instructed him on it.
    This isn't the narrators fault at all but I can't help but cringe every time he says '-kun' like 'kan' and I don't see why he wasn't taught how to say 'yoroshiku onegaishimasu' even vaguely correctly when it came up in the story. One time he even confused two characters.
    It's a shame because the story is brilliant, but these mispronunciations keep breaking the immersion.

    gripping storytelling

    do not let the "fantasy" label put you out of reading this book, it is an amazing story! characters have depth, growth and failures with believable arcs. The writer manages to bring a whole world filled with empathy and you will find yourself unable to stop until you reach the end.
    it is one of those books that you can't stop reading but you do not want to finish as to not say goodbye to the characters and the world. 10/10 will read again.
