The Ghost in the Tokaido Inn, by Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler  
The Ghost in the Tokaido Inn
By: Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler

Spoilers Behind the Cut: Mild

Summary: While attempting to solve the mystery of a stolen jewel, Seikei, a merchant's son who longs to be a samurai, joins a group of kabuki actors in eighteenth-century Japan (taken from here)



Says Risa: I actually started this series by reading the 3rd book, In Darkness, Death, which I didn't review because it's the third book and I like doing things in order, so. XD; OBVIOUSLY I loved that book, because I read this one immediately afterward. The Hooblers have a very smooth and straight-forward writing style, making the pace of their prose quick and painless. That's not to say their writing doesn't paint vivid pictures in the mind. These books are filled with plenty of action, mystery, and fun that'll keep you reading until the last page. <3

Well, it also helps that I love reading things set in Japan. Samurai FTW!

Rating: 3/3

Final Words: This review does this book little justice, but still. Moving on to read The Demon in the Teahouse now.
