Synopsis

Fushigi Yugi: Genbu Kaiden by Yuu Watase

This exciting prequel to VIZ Media's best-selling fantasy series, Fushigi Yugi, tells the story of the very first priestess of the Four Gods - the Priestess of Genbu! Back in her own world, Takiko tries to forget about The Universe of the Four Gods. Determined to live the life of an ordinary girl in Tokyo in 1923, she returns to her father's home and concentrates on being a loyal daughter, and soon, a dutiful bride. But she can't leave her other life behind. And while Takiko struggles to cool her still-burning heart, the Celestial Warriors battle through a new ice age.

Since then she has written and drawn some 50 volumes worth of different short stories and long-running manga series, including the fantastically popular Fushigi Yugi. She won the 43rd Shogakukan award for Ceres: Celestial Legend. Her works have provided the basis for two anime series, a live-action drama, three OVA series, anime soundtrack CDs, and a string of novels.

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.
