I was sent an Advanced Reader Copy of this book by the author to review Full video review coming to my YouTube Channel soonI thoroughly enjoyed this book Not that I was expecting to not enjoy it but I was pleasantly surprised with how much I gravitated towards this story When Meagan originally proposed her newest novel to me the part that REALLY got me interested in A Mortal Song was that it was meant to be a play on the stereotypical protagonist finds out they re a part of some elite mythical race and have to own up to their identity to save the world trope we see freuently in YA urban fantasy As this is a story about a girl who finds out she s NOT the princess to the Mount Fuji s spirit kingdom and is a human changeling to protect the real princess living unaware in Tokyo naturally I was sold immediatelyL I K E S SettingCulture I was really happy to find out this was a book with an entirely Japanese cast that took place in Tokyo It s not a culture I m often exposed to in YA especially in fantasy and it was really cool to learn about it I also found it interesting that the mythical creatures the story is focused on the kami are not just made up beings but to my understanding actually deities worshiped by those who practice Shintoism I thought the combination of urban fantasy and Japanese culture suited the story as well as the author s writing very well Characters I really enjoyed the crew we followed throughout this journey Sora is an extremely strong willed character while going through all this internal conflict about accepting she s human her loyalty and determination never falter Takeo is another extremely loyal character and the epitome of a proper guard good friend Chiyo is probably my favorite character She s virtually unfazeable Never afraid to jump into the unknown so accepting of the fact that there is an entire world of people depending on her and will stop at nothing to protect them And come on you don t just not love a character with lavender hair Kenji is a character I struggled with at some points but I ultimately think he has a good heart and I m glad he was incorporated into the story Another mere human who is ready to lay down his life at any moment for a greater cause The dynamic between this unlikely group of people who never thought they d cross paths was really interesting and I m glad I was able to read about themMagic System This was probably my favorite part of the book The fantastical elements of this book were SUPER well developed which is super important to me as a fantasy reader It was so easy to visualize the kami s using their ki and the system of where their powers derive fromhow they use them was extremely clear I really don t even know the best way to describe it but if you re looking for a good fantasy book for it s fantasy elements this is definitely a book I d recommendD I S L I K E S Romance As an absolute romance LOVER I am always looking for who I can ship with who always hoping for romantic scenes Surprisingly that is not the case for this book It s not that I didn t like the love interest whom I did like it s not that it felt too insta lovey because I wouldn t even call what is in the book LOVE or that the romance was too overwhelming which it wasn t I just personally felt like this story was strong enough WITHOUT a romance which is actually a really good thing So many YA novels these days rely too heavily on a love story and A Mortal Song definitely stands out from that It s not that I felt the romance weakened the story I feel that s too harsh to say But I personally think the absence of a romance would have made an already stable story strongerEnding Without trying to spoil too much the ending was not my favorite and I wish we had With A Mortal Song being a fantasy standalone it s understandable that it has to be a first book and a conclusion all in one and that s not something many fantasy stories can accomplish I can t tell you how I would have changed it but I think a few changes to the ultimate outcome as well as a little bit concerning where things go from here would have benefitted the endingAll in all I really enjoyed this story I would definitely recommend it to my urban fantasy lovers and am super grateful I had the opportunity to read it

A Mortal Song

Ng discovery she is a human changeling raised as a decoy while her parents' true daughter remained safe but unaware in modern day Tokyo Her powers were only borrowed never her own Now with the world's natural cycles falling into chaos and the ghosts plotting an even deadly assault it falls on her to train the unprepared kami princess. when you say thoughts to come tomorrow but it s been like 11 days oopsso hi guys i d like to start off with a huge thank you to the author for giving me an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review i d like to add a sorry for it coming so latefor the most part a mortal song was not bad at all in fact when i first found out about it via crewe s newsletter i was pleasantly surprised because this was an instance where you d expect a chosen one only it s not the main character i haven t read many books where this is the case so i was excited about this booksora is a changeling she s not the real princess of mt fuji s spirit kingdom she s a human not a kami and she doesn t find this out until her birthday right after a bunch of angry ghosts attacked the only home she knew now she has to rely on someone who s been labelled obtuse to find the real princess and save the kingdom within the week easy right hahalike i said the book wasn t bad the action was interesting but it wasn t something that would keep you on your toes but it was enough to keep me going another plus was that it wasn t dull either so yay for thati liked the characters they felt real and not too over the top i can t really say much about them not because of spoilers but because i didn t really feel anything for them i thought sora was a okay main character she was levelheaded and i understood her feelings or tried to as the novel progressed i do remember that whilst reading i found it a bit surprising also weird that she didn t act like the world had just disappeared from beneath her i mean i guess that s kinda over the top but dude she just found out several surprising things but that s just methe romance was the iffiest thing for me there s no love triangle but at one point there is a back and forth between feelings and i absolutely hated that but after that was settled i still didn t feel anything for either party it wasn t a romance that wow d me or made me think was too cute for words like most everything else it was just okayand for the ending god i HATED it it felt cliched and an ending you d expect from every movie or book where there s a huge war not action but through TALKING and i hated that i wasn t something MORE it was a huge letdownoverall the best word i can use to describe this book was okay i wish it was something special especially since it involved japanese mythology but alas 35 stars

As Sora struggles with her emerging human weaknesses and the draw of an unanticipated ally with secrets of his own she vows to keep fighting for her loved ones and the world they once protected But for one mortal girl to make a difference in this desperate war between the spirits she may have to give up the only home she's ever known. 35This book started out very strong for me I really loved Sora the main character and I liked that this story was not in fact about the chosen one Instead it was about the girl who always believed she was the chosen one until one day she finds out that her whole life has been a lie I really loved that I also really loved the Japanese setting It s not something that is seen often in YA but as someone who knows a little bit about the Japanese culture I devoured it I loved the Japanese folklore and how the author created the world out of thatHowever the further into this book I got the my excitement waned I wasn t very overly fond of any of the other characters that were introduced and I didn t love the romance subplot I found that once the main characters started hunting down the sacred items the book got repetitive They travel fight ghosts at shrine retrieve sacred item slay ghosts recover and talk about their losses Sora and Keiji romance each other repeat That type of repetitiveness made the book a chore to pick up I also was not a fan of the ending I m not a fan of the love conuers all ending I find them to be anticlimactic weak and not a representation of good writing By making your hero show love and good to the villain so they understand that they ve done wrong you re really just avoiding writing an epic battle of any varietyHowever I did enjoy the first half and I think Sora is a great lead I also do commend the author for not writing another Greek mythology story instead focusing on an underrated but incredibly interesting folklore in YA For that reason I gave this book three and a half stars
