Shinigami

D in a power struggle for the fate of Fujiwara no Hirotsugu While he battles to find his own path in life Hirotsugu finds solace in a boy who will first become his secret friend t After giving us the beautifully uiet and atmospheric Kogitsune that must be read before moving on to this second instalment in her Takamagahara Monogatari Xia Xia Lake raises the bar with Shinigami an astonishing combination of coming of age story Japanese folklore BLyaoi history and legendsConstructed on and around four main characters and with some surprising changes in the POV Shinigami follows the life of Fujiwara no Hirotsugu and his relationship with his powerful family and with the young Takahashi Ry But be warned This is just the very surface of a story that evolves in an extremely fascinating and complex way that left me breathless and truly astonishedThe author combines historical facts folklore and her own storyline in a totally seamless manner and the resulting experience is a full immersion in an arcane and suspended world where gods meet human where yokai pop in and out of the scene and the emotional charge of the story is relentless and ever growing Shinigami is a truly wonderful novel ending on the brink of the great events which will come in the future instalments of the MonogatariVery highly recommended

    I'm going to be honest I have very different feelings for the first half of this book vs the latter half The first half details the life and experiences of Hirotsugu as he grows up as the heir to one of the wealthiest and respected families In contrast to those around him particularly his family he's very aware and almost ashamed of the divide that separates him from the poor and this is reinforced by a chance encounter with a young beggar
