The Loom of Sorrows-
Earth was dying.

Clouds of blood and lightning killed billions, squeezing humanity to the
equator and extinction. There was only one place to go: a planet named
Joshua 20.

It was a desert world of scalding steam and crushing ice. A few minutes
under the giant suns would burn you to ash. A few seconds in the darkest
night would freeze you solid.

Humanity burrowed underground and turned on itself. People became
brutal, cruel, selfish. One man escaped that, became selfless, led
humanity back home, and then disappeared.

Nobody knows the reason why.

For two hundred years, the memory of that reason lay hidden in the sand
like a shard of glass. Uncovered by accident, it buried itself in the
brain of its discoverer.

He has two weeks to understand it, to unlock the life and motives of its
owner, or it will kill him.

Synopsis: Kitsune shapeshifter Yumeko has given up the final piece of the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers in order to save everyone she loves from imminent death. Now she and her ragtag band of companions must journey to the wild sea cliffs of Iwagoto in a desperate last-chance effort to stop the Master of Demons from calling upon the Great Kami dragon and making the wish that will plunge the empire into destruction and darkness.

Shadow clan assassin Kage Tatsumi has regained control of his body and agreed to a true deal with the devil—the demon inside him, Hakaimono. They will share his body and work with Yumeko and their companions to stop a madman and separate Hakaimono from Tatsumi and the cursed sword that had trapped the demon for nearly a millennium.

But even with their combined skills and powers, this most unlikely team of heroes knows the forces of evil may be impossible to overcome. And there is another player in the battle for the scroll, a player who has been watching, waiting for the right moment to pull strings that no one even realized existed…until now.

 

Review: I thought this book did amazing! I loved the relationships and how the characters interact with one another. I think that’s one of the best things about this series, the author realistically portrays relationships between others in a way that anyone can relate. The plot did well and the book continued well from the second to this. The ending was amazing and this will definitely be a series that I reread!

 

My only issue is, again, the world building, but it was better than the first two books.

 

Verdict: I recommend this series!
