Fumi Yoshinaga's characterization at its awe-inspiring finest.

I sat down to write this review, and all I really want to do is gush.   Last night I decided to soak in the tub for a bit, and as is my wont I grabbed a book to read while I was there-- Ooku volume 2.   Oh, man. ...

A superb YA fantasy with just a touch of adult darkness.

Let me first note that you should probably go over to my First Date Review for my thoughts on the first chunk of the novel, which revolves around the setup and the main character's final entry into the fantasy world of Vision. (But don't worry, I'll still go over the ...
