RT says it "excels wildest expectations!"

Year of the Demon just collected its second review, this time from RT Book Reviews. Their verdict:

What readers get in Bein’s second novel is not one, but three stories that alternate between different time periods. Bein excels beyond any history lover’s wildest imagination with exceptionally researched, vivid descriptions of ancient Japan. Japanese social norms, both past and present, are broken down in order to deliver memorable protagonists that push against the boundaries of their eras. (RT Book Reviews October 2013)

Thanks to Elisa Verna for such a flattering review, and for the short interview that followed it. (I’ll post a link to that when I can.)
