Oh, man, I’m so happy to see this! I adored the first two books, so I’m super excited to see what will happen in this one. It’s especially interesting to see move lively side of Toshio/e (even if it is because someone got murdered…). So ready for the rest of the book!
Though I do have a minor question about how you use a word: “Discoloration beneath the neck, across the left shoulder and around what remains of his stomach area.” Toshio complained, “His entire lower body is soaked in blood…” Complained doesn’t feel like the right word to use here? Maybe it’s just me, but it doesn’t seem like Tosh is actually complaining about Mukai’s bruises, so it seems out of place.
That aside, I really did enjoy the first chapters. I can’t wait for the rest!
