  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 February #2
    Jiho descends from a line of rangers immune to magic, allowing them to patrol the magical Kidahara forest, in which, five years prior, his father disappeared—around the same time as the young princess Koko. When a political plot invites foreign, machine-wielding invaders to destroy the Kidahara, Jiho gets caught up in the forest's magical depths, where he and the princess unite to save the royal family from being overthrown and an ancient evil from being awoken. Oh, a cofounder of We Need Diverse Books, leans on tropes in her latest middle-grade fantasy, though an infusion of East Asian–inspired world building provides some freshness. Shifting points of view prepare readers for an impending betrayal, adding strong tension to the book's latter half, but clunky pacing throughout, along with thin characterization, detracts from the adventure in such a way that may disappoint fantasy-lovers but will nonetheless offer a fast-paced gateway—full of machine guns, magic, and shape-shifting dragons—for young newcomers to the genre. Grades 3-5. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
