Soul of the Sword (Shadow of the Fox, #2)
by Julie Kagawa
Expected publication: June 25th 2019
Synopsis (via Goodreads): One thousand years ago, a wish was made to the Harbinger of Change and a sword of rage and lightning was forged. Kamigoroshi. The Godslayer. It had one task: to seal away the powerful demon Hakaimono.

Now he has broken free.


Kitsune shapeshifter Yumeko has one task: to take her piece of the ancient and powerful scroll to the Steel Feather temple in order to prevent the summoning of the Harbinger of Change, the great Kami Dragon who will grant one wish to whomever holds the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers. But she has a new enemy now. The demon Hakaimono, who for centuries was trapped in a cursed sword, has escaped and possessed the boy she thought would protect her, Kage Tatsumi of the Shadow Clan.

Hakaimono has done the unthinkable and joined forces with the Master of Demons in order to break the curse of the sword and set himself free. To overthrow the empire and cover the land in darkness, they need one thing: the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers. As the paths of Yumeko and the possessed Tatsumi cross once again, the entire empire will be thrown into chaos.

Eeeeeeeeep! I am thrilled about Soul of the Sword, because I absolutely loved Shadow of the Fox. It was one of my favorite reads last year! Julie Kagawa is an amazing author (loved the Iron Fey series, too), and I'm really looking forward to this sequel. The first book ended with a heartbreaking twist, and I desperately need to know what happens next! If you haven't read this series, or Kagawa, you definitely should!

    1. Me too! Did you read the first book? I didn't think fantasy was your thing. ;) <3

    2. Nope, never read anything by Kagawa. Like you said, fantasy just isn’t my thing usually.

  3. I've never read that author but Demons! I do like demons in stories and this sounds interesting.

    1. I highly recommend Julie Kagawa's books! She has a vampire series that you might like. I've only read the first two books, so I'm not sure how it ends. Shadow of the Fox was amazing! I enjoy watching anime, and the story had a similar vibe.

    1. Shadow of the Fox ends with a bang! Kagawa doesn't leave you with a cliffhanger, but she does leave you needing to know more. Which of her books have you read? I love the Iron Fey series! I was always #TeamPuck, though. I do like Ash, but Puck! ;)

    1. Yay! I hope we both love it!! I need to know what happened to a certain someone, and how that situation is going to be resolved.

  6. I REALLY need to start the Kagawa series. I've read other books by her and really enjoyed them. The covers on this series are so well done!

    1. Agreed! I've really enjoyed every Kagawa book I've read. The Iron Fey series has always been my favorite, but Shadow of the Fox was just SO GOOD. I think it might have surpassed Meghan, Ash, and Puck. ;)

  7. The cover for Soul of the Sword is so pretty! I've yet to read anything by Kagawa but I hear only good things.

    1. What?! I'm so surprised! I feel like her books would be perfect for you (based on other things you've read/reviewed). I recommend starting with Shadow of the Fox, then dipping your toes into the Iron Fey series, unless vampires are more your thing. :)
