The Fox's Mask Blog Tour [Review | Giveaway]

The Fox's Mask by Anna Frost 
 (Kitsune Trilogy #1) 

 Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Paranormal, QLTBG

Demon hunter Akakiba keeps many secrets from his human companion. The fact he's a werefox isn't the
worst one.

In feudal Japan, magic is dying. As a demon hunter, Akakiba finds this problematic. The evil he's been trained to destroy is disappearing and, along with it, the shape-shifting abilities of the clan he left behind. With his only companion, a determined young human named Yuki, Akakiba traverses the country slaying demons and performing odd jobs.

But when an army of demon possessed humans masses to exterminate his clan, Akakiba must put aside old feuds and protect his family–all while hiding an important secret from Yuki. Will they find a way to defeat the demon possessed before it's too late? With magic dwindling, will it matter either way?
  Anna. Anna! ANNA! You slayed me with this book. I had no idea what to expect. I purposely didn't look at the reviews because this book was so new to me and I wanted to go into this with an open mind. I'm happy to say that I loved The Fox's Mask. It isn't something I would pick out for myself. But that's the beauty of it. It transcended my preferences and gave me something new to experience.

  I've never watched anime or been heavily into Japanese culture. I don't watch ninja movies. Basically, I am not the target audience for The Fox's Mask. That's what is great about it, though. Even with all of the odds stacked against it, I still loved this story. The pieces of culture and history that were woven into the book were so amazingly done, and I enjoyed that aspect immensely.

  This book is written in third person, but I felt like I was able to establish a relationship with the characters regardless of that. Sometimes a third person telling can have a detached edge, but that was not the case for The Fox's Mask. I was very much a fan of Yuki and Akakiba's relationship and rooted for it the entire time.

  All in all, I enjoyed Anna Frost's The Fox's Mask. It was a different type of story for me, and I loved it just the same. At times, the story lagged but overall, I found it easy to keep up. If you're a YA fan who likes Japanese culture, The Fox's Mask will be a perfect read for you!

**I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review with no cempensation.

Anna Frost is a Canadian girl who spends winters writing and dreaming of summer. An overdose of Japanese culture and media has led her to write fantasy inspired by Japanese mythology. In a shocking break with literary tradition, Anna does not live with cats. Instead she lives with chinchillas, which can be just as demanding and evil as cats.
