  • The Japanese tradition is long and complicated, with subtleties that are truly hard to capture in a work of extant fiction However, Katherine M Lawrence does a wonderful job of it Peppered throughout Cold Sake and Haru are little details like using the old calendar Year of the Monkey, for example , and translating the tongue twister names of people in the pre modern era so that their inherent meanings can be gleaned even by readers unfamiliar with the language.Doubly impressive is the character [...]


  • Such fun Kate weaves a truly enjoyable tale here She knits the warp of Japanese custom with the weft of a good plot crisp pace It was good fun to read, and I look forward to tales of Yamabuki.


  • This story is written in an odd style, but I think it might be consistent with the style of Japanese story telling The way the characters spoke and thought made me think at least a little bit of Memoirs of a Geisha, which is the closest example of Japanese story telling that I have experience with This was a really short book, less than 50 pages, so it was a quick read, but it was also very entertaining I have always enjoyed ghost stories, and ultimately, that s what this is I suppose I would re [...]


  • I m not terribly well versed in Japanese culture or history, and Cold Sake would not normally be in my reading genre, but a friend who d read it gave me the book as a gift and I found it quite enjoyable There s an outstanding ghost story here, a couple of compelling combat scenes, and plenty of mystery around the character of Yamabuki and her mission The setting is vivid, the pacing solid, the glossary helpful, and the cover beautiful I wish there were of it to read Happily, there is another lo [...]


  • Excellent, quick read Lawrence seems to have a grasp of her setting and her character, Yamabuki The story is of a traditional ghost story with a spooky demon and some disturbing imagery It was unsettling, which was to be expected The incorporation of Japanese cultural elements were well done in a way that felt natural and not pedantic DISCLOSURE Received from First Reads program in an exchange for an honest review


  • Your classic ghost story of someone looking for shelter for the night, finds what seems to be a comfortable place to stay, is confronted by The Unknown, then awakens in the morning to discover the place has been in ruins for quite some time and everyone that was encountered last night has been dead for years.




  • Fantastic reading Fantastic reading It has me wanting of the series I can only hope that she will write of this character
