Review

"Daring and disturbing . . . [Kirino is] prepared to push the human limits of this world . . . Remarkable" (Los Angeles Times)

"It is one of the most unexpected and playful novels to emerge from Japan in recent years . . . a triumph. In its boldness and originality, it broadens our sense of what modern Japanese fiction can be" ((for Real World) Telegraph)

"Be prepared for a book utterly unlike anything we are used to in crime fiction" ((for Real World) Independent)

"Got my heart beating" ((for Out) Rose Tremain Daily Telegraph)

"In her wildly far-reaching tale of relations between gods and men, men and women, life and death, darkness and light, Natsuo Kirino tells a peripatetic, global, and truly satisfying love story of how it is to be human" (Stella Duffy)

"Kirino's retelling is a taut, disturbing and timeless tale, filled with rage and pathos for the battles that women have to fight every day, battles which have, apparently, existed from the moment of creation" (Tan Twan Eng the Guardian 2013-02-27)

"I have to say I had a wonderful experience reading this novel because not only Natsuo Kirino has once again captured my attention through her great writing skill and her most unforgettable plot, but what most made this book such a satisfying read is the thought-provoking message behind the story. I couldn't put my feelings into words; this is one novel that you need to read it to experience it" (Melody's Reading Corner)

"What an enjoyable tale I found this to be, involving: love, loss, betrayal, hatred and revenge with great storytelling qualities, memorable characters an epic and mythical read . . . A tale that will have you captivated and fully intertwined, a love story that will remain in your mind and felt in your heart for many cycles of the Sun" (More2Read)

"[Izanami and Izanagi's] story provides a point of comparison and contrast with Namima's . . . All is wrapped up in clean prose that gives this engaging novel a mythic feel of its very own" (Follow the Tread)

"The Goddess Chronicle dissects the myths of female helplessness, power and vindictiveness with simplicity and empathy. And like all myths that transcend boundaries, it will resonate with women of every culture" (Ong Sor Fern The Straits Times)

Book Description

My name is Namima. I was barely sixteen when I died. Now I make my home among the dead, here in this realm of darkness . . .
