Julie Kagawa, the New York Times bestselling author of the Iron Fey and Blood of Eden series was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing exciting really happened to her there. So, at the age of nine she and her family moved to Hawaii, which she soon discovered was inhabited by large carnivorous insects, colonies of house geckos, and frequent hurricanes. She spent much of her time in the ocean, when she wasn't getting chased out of it by reef sharks, jellyfish, and the odd eel.When not swimming for her life, Julie immersed herself in books, often to the chagrin of her schoolteachers, who would find she hid novels behind her Math textbooks during class. Her love of reading led her to pen some very dark and gruesome stories, complete with colored illustrations, to shock her hapless teachers. The gory tales faded with time (okay, at least the illustrations did), but the passion for writing remained, long after she graduated and was supposed to get areal job.To pay the rent, Julie worked in different bookstores over the years, but discovered the managers frowned upon her reading the books she was supposed to be shelving. So she turned to her other passion: training animals. She worked as a professional dog trainer for several years, dodging Chihuahua bites and overly enthusiastic Labradors, until her first book sold and she stopped training to write full time.Julie now lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where the frequency of shark attacks are at an all time low. She lives with her husband, an obnoxious cat, an Australian Shepherd who is too smart for his own good, and a hyper-active Papillion.

They are demon like but Yumeko isn't a bad kitsune, she doesn't use her powers to harm anyone. She is useful. The books intrigue begins an...

It was a very good anthology filled with folklore and mythologies (a subject that I really love) that I have not been usually exposed to but I enjoyed reading about very much. Some were better than others, some felt quite flat.Rating for each storyForbidden Fruit b...

When I heard about this book and finding out that there was going to be an assassin in it and a mysterious scroll(sorry if I spelled the word wrong,) in it. I thought it would be my type of book, boy even my friend that I was buddy reading it with, though I was going to love it. My friend didn't eve...

I'm a fan, having read 16 books of Julie Kagawa's. I have high hopes. It was good but not great. I feel like my lack of knowledge with Japanese culture and folklore may have contributed to me not loving it. I literally had zero knowledge. At the beginning of the story I was even slightly confused, a...
