On the heels of a family tragedy, the last thing Katie Greene wants to do is move halfway across the world. Stuck with her aunt in Shizuoka, Japan, Katie feels lost. Alone. She doesn’t know the language, she can barely hold a pair of chopsticks, and she can’t seem to get the hang of taking her shoes off whenever she enters a building.
Then there’s gorgeous but aloof Tomohiro, star of the school’s kendo team. How did he really get the scar on his arm? Katie isn’t prepared for the answer. But when she sees the things he draws start moving, there’s no denying the truth: Tomo has a connection to the ancient gods of Japan, and being near Katie is causing his abilities to spiral out of control. If the wrong people notice, they'll both be targets.
Katie never wanted to move to Japan—now she may not make it out of the country alive.
I liked it. It was original ,but at some points it just felt like they slipped out the word vampire and replaced it with kami. The Summary left no surprises about his species either because it basically tells the jist of the story.
As much as I loathe people who constantly compare books to Twilight, I have to compare this book to it. Katie in the beginning reminded me so much of the bad things of Bella it was kind of annoying. At the 2nd part of the book she got less annoying and more "mediocre" for lack of a better term. I did like her decision in the end because I didn't like how Tomo was pushing her away.
I hated it so much that I loved this character, he rude, arrogant, and so hot! He is just so protective of her and it's so dreamy ,but he has problems with pushing people away.
Amanda Sun was really detailed on the facts of Japan and I learned a lot about Japan. They have some words in Japanese that you have to look up, which was fun in the beginning but got tiresome 50 pages in. Like literally every one or two pages you have to look up the words in the glossary in the back.
The ending was not a cliffhanger nor a dull one. It was a nice ending
