Product description

Review

"If you're interested in fantasy, giant mechs, or even love stories with strong characters, I highly recommend Kokoro. 5 hoots!" - Purple Owl Reviews; "Kokoro promises a gorgeous, rich new world and an exciting story." - Syfy Wire; "Ultimately, Kokoro delivers a fast-paced adventure, sweeping us off our feet and into the world of Higo. Delving into new worlds and characters, we see through their eyes and they make their way into our hearts astonishing us with their love, humbling us with their bravery, and making us weep with their pain. While on the surface we see a tale about heroism, action, and finding your calling, beneath we find a story of forgiveness, inner truth, and finding our family." - Utopia State of Mind; "Kokoro is the sequel to Keith Yatsuhashi's book Kojiki and continues where it ended with its masterful blend of Japanese folklore and science fiction. In many ways it is a manga or anime in purely written form and those familiar with that form of storytelling and the tropes that guide that very genre will enjoy it immensely. The difference between the sequel and its predecessor is that Kojiki more felt like an adventure novel, related to tales like Spirited Away, while Kokoro is more reminiscent of Robotech or Knights of Sidonia." - WARG; "I recommend this book for readers who like a mix of fantasy and science fiction." - A Bohemian Mind at Work; "Kokoro is the sequel to Keith Yatsuhashi's book Kojiki and continues where it ended with its masterful blend of Japanese folklore and science fiction. In many ways it is a manga or anime in purely written form and those familiar with that form of storytelling and the tropes that guide that very genre will enjoy it immensely. The difference between the sequel and its predecessor is that Kojiki more felt like an adventure novel, related to tales like Spirited Away, while Kokoro is more reminiscent of Robotech or Knights of Sidonia." - WARG; "Kokoro is a loving homage to mecha anime and manga. I got really strong Neon Genesis Evangelion vibes throughout the whole book, which was not a bad thing... Really fast, and really engaging." - Crosshatches; PRAISE FOR KOJIKI; "Great. Beautifully crafted; well-written, with a loving attention to detail. Among the best of its genre." - Japanator; "If you are looking for an exciting fantasy novel, I definitely recommend that you give Kojiki a try. You won't be disappointed." - Masquerade Crew; "I had a great time reading this book". 5/5* - Blogger's Bookshelf; "A unique spin on fantasy, a space where dragons and elementals war with each other over broken Tokyo - then this book is worth your time." - Sci-Fi & Fantasy Reviews; "Recommended." - The Curious SFF Reader; "I'm a huge fan of books that send me on spiraling internet searches, digital walkabouts that start in one place, and wind up somewhere completely different. Kojiki is one of those books, spinning away from a neat, accessible introduction into an exploration of a myriad of creatures and the worlds to contain them." - B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog; "In many ways, Kojiki is a metaphor for discovering your heritage and engaging with your roots, especially as a second-generation immigrant. Rooting the novel in Keiko's real world, relatable struggles gives the story depth and helps anchor its wonderful flights of fancy." - Fantasy Faction; "A win for Keith Yatsuhashi." - The Silver Words --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
