BLOG TOUR: Night of the Dragon (Shadow of the Fox #3) by Julie Kagawa

I am really excited to be a part of the Blog Tour for Night of the Dragon by Julie Kagawa. This is the third book in the Shadow of the Fox Series. I've been a fan of Julie Kagawa's writing for a while, so I was so excited to read this conclusion. I was provided with a free copy for honest review from the publisher. Thanks so much to Inkyard Press and Julie Kagawa for letting me be a part of this tour!

Synopsis: Kitsune shapeshifter Yumeko has given up the final piece of the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers in order to save everyone she loves from imminent death. Now she and her ragtag band of companions must journey to the wild sea cliffs of Iwagoto in a desperate last-chance effort to stop the Master of Demons from calling upon the Great Kami dragon and making the wish that will plunge the empire into destruction and darkness.
Shadow clan assassin Kage Tatsumi has regained control of his body and agreed to a true deal with the devil — the demon inside him, Hakaimono. They will share his body and work with Yumeko and their companions to stop a madman and separate Hakaimono from Tatsumi and the cursed sword that had trapped the demon for nearly a millennium.
But even with their combined skills and powers, this most unlikely team of heroes knows the forces of evil may be impossible to overcome. And there is another player in the battle for the scroll, a player who has been watching, waiting for the right moment to pull strings that no one even realized existed… until now.
Master storyteller Julie Kagawa concludes the enthralling journey into the heart of the fantastical Empire of Iwagoto in the third book of the Shadow of the Fox trilogy. As darkness rises and chaos reigns, a fierce kitsune and her shadowy protector will face down the greatest evil of all. A captivating fantasy for fans of Sabaa Tahir, Sarah J. Maas and Marie Lu.

My Thoughts: I loved this! I'm such a fan of Julie Kagawa. I'm always in love with her characters, enthralled by their adventures, and gasping at the twists and turns. Night of the Dragon was a wonderful conclusion to her Shadow of the Fox Series.
There was so much adventure in these pages. Everything is finally coming together, we get to see some awesome powers, and a satisfying conclusion.
This series reminds me so much of a manga or anime. In middle school, I loved reading Yuu Watase's fantastical adventure mangas that always included a ragtag bunch of characters, and this series just brought back those feels. I love a good group dynamic. I also love a good relationship, and this had some of those too.
I'd definitely recommend this series. Really, I'd recommend any of Julie Kagawa's works. This is good and a great conclusion for this series.



Julie Kagawa, the New York Times bestselling author of the Iron Fey, Blood of Eden, Talon, and Shadow of the Fox 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, but the passion for writing remained, long after she graduated and was supposed to get a real 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 dogtrainer 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 North Carolina with her husband, two obnoxious cats, and a pair of Australian Shepherds that have more Instagram followers than she does.
