"Kira is a distinctly Japanese character whose sensibilities are refreshingly un-Westernized. Fans of Julie Kagawa's Shadow of the Fox and Kat Cho's Wicked Fox will also appreciate the vivid, sometimes gruesome, writing reminiscent of punchy anime dialogue."--Publishers Weekly
"The arresting action and imagery are engrossing. Perfect for fans of Japanese folklore and manga similar to Death Note."--Booklist
"Many cool monsters and some suspense keep the pages turning, with a bit of romance and banter."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
