I’ve been itching for another Courtney Alameda book ever since I finished Pitch Dark. I’m not familiar with Valynne E. Maetani, but I love to see what authors do when they collaborate. I’m always on the lookout for good fantasy novels with a bit of a horror twist and Seven Deadly Shadows sounds incredibly intriguing when it comes to world building. Cover is linked to Goodreads.
Title: Seven Deadly Shadows
Author: Courtney Alameda and Valynne E. Maetani
Release Date: January 28, 2020
“Seventeen-year-old Kira Fujikawa has never had it easy. She’s bullied by the popular girls in school. Her family ignores her. And she’s also plagued with a secret: She can see yokai, the ghosts and demons that haunt the streets of Japan. But things accelerate from bad to worse when she learns that Shuten-doji, the demon king, will rise at the next blood moon to hunt down an ancient relic and bring the world to a catastrophic end.
Not exactly skilled at fighting anything, much less the dead, Kira enlists the aid of seven powerful death gods to help her slay Shuten-doji. They include Shiro, a kitsune with boy-band looks who is more flirtatious than helpful, and O-bei, a regal demon courtesan with covert reasons of her own for getting involved.
As the confrontation with Shuten-doji draws nearer by the day, the fate of Japan hangs in the balance. Can Kira save humankind? Or will the demon king succeed in bringing eternal darkness upon the world?”
