    Fantasy mob story with super powers

    A mob novel that takes place in a second world fantasy setting where Jade can give people super powers but only people who are from this country can harness the power and only control it after years of training. A powerful family story is told in this alluring setting.

    Excellent

    Loved this way more than I expected to. I got it because of the setting and the fantasy elements, but the writing is terrific with wonderful characterization and characters with believable flaws and motivations. I highly recommend it.

    Really Really Good!

    I really have to start putting my thoughts down when I finish my books, not three days later! I really enjoyed this book, more than I thought I would, if I'm honest. It's The Godfather meets Ninjas and Yakuza clans in a 1950's-ish time and on the Island of Kekon where jade is magical, giving enhanced abilities to some who are known as the Green Bone Warriors. I found the first maybe third of the book a little slow, as things got set up and we meet the main players, the Kaul family, as well as the a slew of secondary characters. It's a typical clan type family, I guess, with the 'retired' grandfather who is having difficulty letting go of his power. His three grandchildren, Lan, Hilo, Shae and the adopted Anden. Lan, the eldest, is the new Pillar or head of the No Peak clan, Hilo is the Horn, the second-in-command. Their sister, Shae, has been away from the island and the clan for a while and has been living without her jade. Anden, the youngest, about to leave his teen years behind is a senior at the Academy, just about ready to graduate and take his jade as well as his position within the family. Once we begin to know all the characters and get somewhat of a handle on them, the story really kicks in. We're talking murders, assassinations, stolen jade, government scandals, love affairs, clans heading to war and maybe even the total collapse of their island and way of life. The world-building is intricate and terrific and the characters, main, secondary and even the walk-ons are deftly drawn. Once we get into things, the plot moves along quite nicely with twists and turns and surprises along the way. Some good and some bad. Some I saw coming, some I did not. So, yes, this is one of those books where I wish I could write a decent review because I feel like I'm not doing it justice. It's a terrific book and I can't wait for the second book to come out.
