Book Blurb: Love and revenge don't end with death.
Exiled for her mother’s sins, Suzume lives in a remote mountain shrine training to become a priestess. She would give anything to return to her old life at the emperor’s palace. When she accidently awakens a sleeping dragon posing as the mountain god, she thinks he is the answer to all her problems. But she gets more than she bargained for when she unleashes the Dragon, Kaito. He has been sealed away for five hundred years and now he is hungry for revenge. The woman who trapped him may be dead, but he will settle for her reincarnation and he chooses Suzume to join him on his quest for vengeance. What he doesn’t realize is Suzume is that priestess reborn. Now she must find a way to seal the dragon once more before he learns the truth.
My Review: I love how in this book some of the characters from Kitsune return to be part of the story. Suzume is a very headstrong princess who was exiled along with her mother and siblings because her mother supposedly cheated on her father the Emperor. Of course throughout the story it's alluded to that something besides adultery is the real reason that she was exiled. Suzume is very spoiled and throughout the book she starts to lose her spoiledness but still retains some of it by the end of it.
Kaito is the Dragon from the book Kitsune and after he is set free from his seal he vows to find and kill the reincarnation of his former lover. Of course most people in the book that the two interact with are convinced that Suzume is Kazue's reincarnation but she is very adamant that she is not.
This book had me hooked from the very beginning and I'm looking forward to reading book two in the series. It's worth picking up and reading.
Rating: 4½ stars out 5
