"Must read: An engaging fantasy inspired by Japanese mythical lore. Great characters with a fast paced story...Which readers would I recommend Rise: The Liminal Chronicals to, all readers. But especially those that enjoy anime and manga, or are interested in reading them. You may not enjoy this novel as much if you do not have an interest in either of them. While reading it felt like I was watching a movie."
