Despite being slightly out of my comfort zone (being unfamiliar with Japanese culture) I soon relaxed into `Buried Threads' because I found myself in the hands of a talented writer, who knit together the threads of erotic romance, gangs, cults, mystery and Japanese society with consummate skill.
I ended up enjoying the mix of cultures: the obvious physical attraction between Chase and Rachel, compared to the more subtle but incendiary, highly charged Japanese eroticism. In a book with an attractive Japanese monk, a surprise sibling, curses and decapitation -the scene is set for a rollicking adventure. The story grabs you, much like a screenplay, and this book could easily make the transition to Hollywood blockbuster.

One of my favorite characters in this book is Mariko the geisha, whose life is inextricably bound to a man named Kenji... until he is murdered in cold blood. She vows to find his killer, and gets swept up in the adventure alongside Rachel and Chase.
Overall this book is fast paced, exciting, and full of plot twists, especially at the end. But what else would you expect when the premise is two treasure hunters searching for a cursed ancient sword? If you like Indiana Jones you might like McFarren's books. I also thought she did a good job painting a picture of the culture of Japan, which I'm not personally familiar with, but after finishing this book I almost feel like I've been there.
They find out from a monk’s prediction that a natural disaster my strike and in order to seek the gem they have to race time and find 3 swords to halt the disaster. Chase and Rachel go on a great quest to the treasure and they find themselves in interesting situations such as, waters with sharks and caves. The way the book is written it really makes you feel you there with Rachel and Chase trying to solve the quest as well.
I enjoyed this book just as much as the first one. So much detail and descriptive words. I also would recommend this book to everyone i know. The author is very knowledgeable about Japanese history. What would really be great if a movie came out on this series. I just could not book the down. I'm excited to see what the author has more to share.
I couldn't stop reading this harrowing tale of discovery and romance. Life and death. With so much going on i was thoroughly impressed with the accurate details of this book. All the beauty was written so it floated into my mind with ease. The pace is quick and you're left wanting more. This is a great book to read when you need a bit of distraction. It will suck you into the world of japan's under belly and the beauty of the land of the east. Shipwrecks and underwater caves, which near death experience will be your favorite characters last. Read this wonderful book to find out.
I found this book to be even more exciting than the first installment because of the Japanese theme. The author weaves iconic hallmarks of Japanese culture into the story perfectly, complete with geisha girls, nightclubs, and tea-houses. There are also compelling side characters with their own storyline that add complexity to the plot, and the detailed descriptions of Japanese history and cultural traditions are fascinating glimpses into a seemingly strange and mysterious land. McFarren keeps things going at a brisk pace, with plenty of action and just the right amount of romance sprinkled in.
For those who have already read Severed Threads and enjoyed it, I highly recommend you purchase Buried Threads, Volume 2. The stakes are higher, the villains are ruthless, and the treasure hunting adventures deliver heart-pounding thrills. You won't be disappointed
