Any authors reading this who write the types of books that we review and love please let us know and we will be glad to tell our readers about it!!!
This week I found out about a book I was given a little while ago by a very cultured young author with an interest in Korean Lore.The book is called The Year of the Wolf and it follows Citlalli(awesome name)Alvarez, a young Mexican girl who moves to Seoul, S.Korea with her family after her sister goes missing. It's a mix of Epic/High and Urban Fantasy and it has some interesting concepts that go beyond the typical Euro-centric themes you typically see in High Fantasy.
Read the blurb:
“Many years ago, when I was young and still human, a shadow took my older sister—a dark queen from a mysterious spirit world, who clings to life by stealing the bodies of young girls. Now she’s returned again to hunt my family…
“But this time, I will be the one hunting her.”
Citlalli Alvarez thought the hardest thing about adjusting to her new life in Seoul, South Korea would be the food. But when her half-sister is kidnapped for sinister purposes, Citlalli gets entangled with an ancient Vampyre Queen, her seven deadly and beautiful sons, and a dangerous spirit world. Citlalli has never been one to shy away from a fight, but in order to rescue her sister, she must face an unimaginable price that could put her very soul at stake.
Self-empowering and lushly-imagined, YEAR OF THE WOLF is a dark adventure that follows the lonely road of revenge and dreams of breaking off toward the bittersweet horizon of redemption. For the latest on the Changeling Sisters series, visit:
