Ratings and Reviews
I liked the emphasis on the character interactions, the depth one can see play out without needing the action to carry the plot along. I can respect that. The feel for established characters was there, the conflict and tension rising from the start and middle were great... Then it just took a turn for the strange that outright derailed it. One minute it is clear cut, next minute it's referencing something akin to inception in absurd ways that I felt hurt the story.
I didn't enjoy the second half of the story due to how it went from character building, to questioning the characters roles in the story altogether, to a completely different story entirely that only referenced what was the original story.
I loved the first Samurai of Hyuuga book, and I've replayed it many times. This book just felt like it was dragging its feet halfway through, tripped, and crawled towards the end with parallels to fantasy island as its crutch. Maybe I grew too fond to the flow of the previous books plot, but this felt hollow by the finish.
I agree with the whole confusion about the last half of the story. It started off amazing because it stuck with feudal Japan as its setting but then the last half is in some weird stranded island, and now apparently the characters can't get out of it too. Just where was this supposed to go? The mission was to find the 2nd demon and kill it, not stay in a fantasy island for half of the book.
It's like the saying, "If we gonna eat, let's eat." Let's kill that demon already because we all know who it is.
Another thing I didn't like was how little romance there was, despite there being options for who you could pick in some scenes. I expected a little more romance in the second book but no. If the gender of Toshio/Toshi determined whether or not my character is gay/lesbian or straight, I would want more interactions with that character and not a forced (depending how you play) "romance" scene with Momo (the only female in the gang). There were many chances and moments where it could've taken a somewhat romantic turn with the other characters, but it didn't deliver. And don't get me started with that crazy bastard Jin. He's a big NO.
I was promised romance. At least make all of the characters an option, not just one.
Fantastic book. I've read every single choice of games book on the App Store, (except for that one about being an iron atom. I mean, what?) and this is most definitely the best one I've had the pleasure of "playing" coming in atop my former favorites, tin star and the heroes rise trilogy. This book delivered. I felt for the characters. I wanted to be there to comfort hatch, or lay a friendly hand on the ronin's shoulder when he was feeling overwhelmed. I enjoyed the dichotomy between the first book, which focused more on violence and swordplay, and this one, more attuned to the intellectual pursuits available in hyuga. Also, the last supper, Mona Lisa, and roof of the cistine chapel inclusions were much appreciated. I truly cannot wait until the third installment.
