We read this for the YA for Grownups bookclub, and what a fun read it was! Thoroughly spooky, this is a great first book in a fantasy/horror series and I'm curious to read more within this universe to see what happens next. This book is a great read-a-like if you love Garth Nix's Abhorsen series or anything written by Leigh Bardugo.

I just could not get into the book. I did not like how they went back and forth between the past and present. It also seemed like the characters would be in one city and they all of a sudden they were somewhere else and I had no idea why.

It was interesting reading this and emersing myself in the colorful, new culture was a bit difficult at times, but honestly the last page made it all worth it. I do so love it when a unexpected ship sails out of left field.

This is one of those books recommended to me by others. I adored the gorgeous settings and descriptive writing... until that is all that this book became and I started to lose interest. The first half of the book flows well and at a fast enough pace to keep it interesting but I felt the story slowed down and I ended up putting it down. A couple months passed and I checked out the downloadable audiobook, much better! If you enjoy world building and descriptive language you might consider this title, but I would definitely go with the audio version if you decide to give this book a shot.

if memories of a geisha had magical creatures and witches that called themselves asha. Can take some time to get into as the first few chapters are all introductions into the world of asha. I didn't mind this that much, might not be for everyone.

I really like this book. It's a bit confusing at first, but if you pay attention while you read it's very good. I especially like the parts in the present, because it's kind of eerie and I think Tea speaks with a nice rhythm.
