  • Excellent series

    Aki Hisona is secretary to the Yakuza godfather, Nao who he has been in love with for a long time, however it is unrequited or so he thinks. While out for an evening with friends he gets into a fight with one of them who draws a knife on him. During the struggle the friend is stabbed and in his panic Aki hides the body. When he goes to hide the body, he is stunned to find it has gone missing. Now he needs to find it before he is found out and loses his position. This is a superbly written short story, however all is not revealed so we need to anxiously wait for book 4!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Loved it!!!

    This is the third book in The Yakuza Path series by Amy Tsukada. This is the first book that I have read in the series, and I can't wait to go back and read the first two books after reading this one. I loved One Thousand Cranes. The story was well written, and I found the characters to be developed and complex. I loved Aki and his crush on his boss, Yakuza godfather Nao. I also liked how everybody keeps underestimating what his job is for his boss. They see him as only a tea maker and phone answer. A job that anybody can do. He also gets ribbed for having to bend over a desk whenever his boss wants to take him. However, those rumors aren't true even if Aki really wished that they were. He would love nothing more than to be his boss's new toy. The book is part of a series, so it does end in a happy for now, and I can't wait to find out what happens next. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fast paced thriller with slow burn romance

    If you follow Amy Tasukada’s Yakuza Path series you’ve probably been waiting for this one with a bated breath. I know I did. It is a very good short, quick thriller that furthers the whole story around the young Yakuza boss, Nao and his secretary, Aki. A morning knife fight born out of envy leads to the need for keeping secrets and the tension they create. The plot develops amidst the superbly described setting, but again if you follow this author this is not a surprise. Amy Tasukada is an expert in the contraposition of the quiet and solemn scenery of the Japanese city with the turmoil inside the character’s mind, this time Aki. We don’t know until the last moment if Nao is aware of the fight or not and what his reaction would be. There was something else I expected to happen and I can’t say because spoilers.. All I can say is that there will be another book and I’m really glad about it. A word of advice: One Thousand Cranes can’t be read as a standalone but if you like fast paced thrillers with interesting characters, superb descriptions and twists and a bit of a slow burn romance, you’d do yourself a favor if you start the series now.

    Thanks for your feedback!
