Mr. Yatsuhashi has a created a work of art with his novel Kojiki. Readers are eased into the waters of his intricate universe and its hierarchy of gods, goddesses and their Guardians. In this way, Yatsuhashi creates a sense of mystery and awe as he unveils his stunning world gradually, delivering one cinematic visual after another. I found myself re-reading portions of the novel to simply savor his imagery.
His characters are built with complexities and nuances that make each of them unique and integral to the overall narrative. His ability to make his multitude of characters relevant to the plot and memorable really impressed me.
With fluid, visceral action scenes, larger than life characters and language that never fails to render his enchanting visuals sharply in the mind's eye, Kojiki by Keith Yatsuhashi deserves 5 stars.
I highly recommend this fantastic novel for lovers of fantasy and action, and for those who want to be swept off their feet and taken places novels have never taken them before.
