Summary

Tsumiko inherits an ancestral home, a vast fortune, and a butler who isn't exactly human.  

Humanity is rocked by the Emergence of a people who call themselves the Amaranthine. They are our myths and legends come to life. Neither human nor animal, yet embracing qualities of both, the inhuman races inspire both awe and fear. Every newsfeed is clogged with updates about the peace process, but some places don't concern themselves with worldly affairs. Like the girls' school run by Saint Midori's of the Heavenly Lights, where Tsumiko Hajime grew up.   

A letter from a long-lost aunt names Tsumiko heiress to an ancestral estate and its accompanying fortune. Only the legacy comes with an aloof heirloom: an inhuman butler. Argent has served the Hajime family for centuries, and Tsumiko must renew the generational bond or he'll die. Argent hates her for the hold she has over him, but he craves her soul almost as much as he craves his freedom.

very well narrated

I think the narrator did a very good job. Love the story, on the book and bought the audio to listen to it while I was working.

I couldn't stop listening

I was so wrapped up in this story. Normally I listen during certain times of the day but with this story I was "sneaking in" 5 minutes here and there to progress the storyline. I will definitely be relistening to this story time and again!

Very unique

Unique story- I’ve not read anything like it before & I read a lot. Perfect for anime fans or fans of kitsune mythology.

part manga-fairytale-romance

Tsumiko inherits an estate and an Amaranthine, one of the newly revealed human shifters. She is shocked to find out he is bonded to her family line and, basically, a slave. Tsumiko is determined to have him freed and has help from Michael and his wife, housemates at Stately Manor. Lovely and fun, and with a Japanese sensibility.
I completely enjoyed the author’s writing style and the story, which falls somewhere between manga, a fairytale and, lastly, a romance. The world building is only sketched out as needed, but interesting enough to keep the story moving along.
I’m a fan of Ilona Andrews and she mentioned this book on her blog. I read this on Kindle first, and I’ve bought additional books.
Baldree did a decent enough job of narration. The recording would have benefited with the editing out of some mispronunciations.
Recommend.

finally the audiobook

I've been waiting and hoping for this since I pre-ordered the hard copie. I love this story it's a new kind of fairy tale. and I can't wait for the rest of the series. the narration is not what my brain thought of when I read the book, but it's still good.

Creative and different

This story has the imaginative touch of many Japanese animated movies. It is a bit like princess mononoke, a bit like twilight. The author puts together an alternate reality which is enjoyable to spend some time in. There were times I felt the story wasn't as deep as it could be, but overall a good read.
