White as Bone, Red as Blood – The Fox Sorceress

I want to thank Mirella Patzer for allowing me to re-post this on my website. Please see The Historical Novel Review’s site for an interview with the author and an excerpt from the book.

White as Bone Red as Blood – The Fox Sorceress is much more than a vivid portrayal about a turbulent period in Japanese history. It is a gentle coming of age story, one that explores sexuality in all its forms, and the passions of relationships of all kinds. The author, Cerridwen Fallingstar, has weaved an intricate tale of treachery and love that is so realistic, it feels as if the reader is actually a living witness to the tale.

What I found most intriguing, is the fact that the author drew on her own experiences as a shaman and time-traveled to this past life where the story of Seiko was unfolded to her. Because of this first-hand view, coupled with intense research, the author was able to write the story with amazing clarity and a level of detail that held me enthralled from beginning to end. It is historical fiction at its very best, depicting a time and era in history rich with conflict and emotion.

A sequel named White as Bone Red as Blood – The Storm God is scheduled for release in the spring of 2010 and is one I am eagerly awaiting.

    Doesn't it, though! I, unfortunately, was not the one who got to critique it. (Sassafrassafrickinfrackin. LOL) I'm just a member of the Historical Novel Review Site, so the owner allowed me to post her review. But I look forward to reading it. It sounds right up my alley!
    BTW, if anyone has an historical novel – even one that is closer to magical realism than true history – the site will give reviews.

    Thanks for dropping in, Jeannie Lin! I hope the book's good. It does make me a tad nervous to post a review of a book I've personally not read, ya know?
