The Twelve Kingdoms: Sea of Wind - Fuyumi Ono, 小野 不由美, Akihiro Yamada, 山田 章博, Elye J. Alexander, Alexander O. Smith

The Twelve Kingdoms series is kind of an odd one for me - I consider it a beloved series even though most of my ratings for the individual books are 3 to 3.5 stars. I think it's the world and general setup that I like the most.


That said, I genuinely love Sea of Wind. I was a little worried that the events of The Shore in Twilight, the Sky at Daybreak had ruined this book for me as a comfort read, but it still works, for the most part. There's just an extra helping of bittersweetness to it now.
