DNF. Not my type of book.I honestly thought that I would like this book more. Since I am big on fantasy and big on girls who kick butt, I didn't think I have a problem getting in it.There is nothing wrong with the story other than it's just not my style. I wasn't able to connect it nor understand it. The story is written vividly with great imagination. I gathered that much just from the first few pages. But for me, it just wasn't my type of book. For now, I will pass and decided not to finish the book. For those who love Japanese history, mixed with fantasy you should definitely check this book out.
