Description

Sora's life was full of magic--until she discovered it was all a lie. Heir to Mt. Fuji's spirit kingdom, Sora yearns to finally take on the sacred kami duties. But just as she confronts her parents to make a plea, a ghostly army invades the mountain. Barely escaping with her life, Sora follows her mother's last instructions to a heart-wrenching discovery: she is a human changeling, raised as a decoy while her parents' true daughter remained safe but unaware in modern-day Tokyo. Her powers were only borrowed, never her own. Now, with the world's natural cycles falling into chaos and the ghosts plotting an even more deadly assault, it falls on her to train the unprepared kami princess. As Sora struggles with her emerging human weaknesses and the draw of an unanticipated ally with secrets of his own, she vows to keep fighting for her loved ones and the world they once protected. But for one mortal girl to make a difference in this desperate war between the spirits, she may have to give up the only home she's ever known.show more

Review quote

"Megan Crewe's A Mortal Song is engrossing from the first chapter. The world of the kami is beautifully fantastic and delicately drawn, and the switched-at-birth scenario made me instantly feel for both of these resilient, brave girls. A Mortal Song has lots of magic, lots of heart, and lots to love." - Kendare Blake, NYT bestselling author of Three Dark Crowns. "Sora is multi-faceted, endearing, intelligent and a pleasure to read... We've all read the classic rags to riches story, but in A Mortal Song, Megan Crewe delivers the opposite, and the result is gripping. Nothing about this book is typical; not the characters, nor the world. Young adult readers are in for a treat." -Kelly St. Clare, YABooksCentral "Wholly unique... The setting will appeal to teen fans of anime and manga and the diverse nature of the entirely Japanese cast will attract others." -VOYA "Crewe toys with the boundaries and tropes of science fiction and fantasy, making A Mortal Song a truly enjoyable read... Readers will not be disappointed as they follow this relatable and compassionate heroine on her way home, wherever that home may be." -Quill & Quireshow more
