This is one of the more intriguing books I read this year for sure. Here’s the first paragraph from this book…
My name is Namima – ‘Woman-Amid-The-Waves’. I am a miko. Born on an island far, far to the south, I was barely sixteen when I died. Now I make my home among the dead, here in this realm of darkness.
~ The Goddess Chronicle by Natsuo Kirino
In terms of plot so far, the book reminds me a bit of Peony in Love, but this one is much more accessible and less bogged down by the mythology. It really and truly feels like a modern story.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
