Tsumiko inherits an ancestral home, a vast fortune, and a butler who isn't exactly human. Humanity is rocked by the Emergence of a people who call themselves the Amaranthine. They are our myths and legends come to life. Neither human nor animal, yet embracing qualities of both, the inhuman races inspire both awe and fear. Every newsfeed is clogged with updates about the peace process, but some places don't concern themselves with worldly affairs. Like the girls' school run by Saint Midori's of the Heavenly Lights, where Tsumiko Hajime grew up.A letter from a long-lost aunt names Tsumiko heiress to an ancestral estate and its accompanying fortune. Only the legacy comes with an aloof heirloom: an inhuman butler. Argent has served the Hajime family for centuries, and Tsumiko must renew the generational bond or he'll die. Argent hates her for the hold she has over him, but he craves her soul almost as much as he craves his freedom. Amazon Editors' Picks for the Top 20 Best SciFi/Fanta...

Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox Reviews
Anul acesta mi-am propus să nu mă oblig să termin o lectură care nu îmi place, iar acest volum s-a încadrat foarte bine în acastă categorie. Povestea unei tinere care se trezește, din senin, bogată, deosebită și cu un servitor extra-sexy-frumos-demon-puternic, de care o leagă un jurământ de acum o mie de ani, dar totul ia o altă întorsătură, cu el care o urăște și ea care e mielușică... ei bine, poate e vârsta, poate e stilul, poate e faptul că am citit nșpe manga cu acest subiect și exact acele ...more
French & English reviews
Un énorme coup de coeur !!
Je dois avouer que j'ai découvert ce livre grâce à Ilona Andrews (<3) qui l'a recommandé et j'ai ADORE !!!
Ce que j'ai particulièrement aimé :
- l'univers qui est très riche avec l'Emergence qui a permis la révélation des Amaranthine qui sont des personnes ayant une forme humaine et une forme plus "animale" (renard, chien, chat ...) et les reavers qui sont un peu des sorciers permettant de protéger les humains contre les Amaranthine. Je simp ...more
Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox is an interesting debut novel. The feel is mostly "if Anne Bishop's Written in Red had been a j-drama with a clean romance" - the whole story starts out rather anime-y and then settles into a more defined plot and whereas there is kissing, it is no KISSING (which took a moment to get used to, as I usually read books with K I S S I N G !!1). There are some dark elements (abuse, consent, off-screen rape) but overall, it is pretty fluffy and the heroine is a shining bea ...more
Une très belle lecture, originale à tant d'égards.
L'histoire se déroule de nos jours, au Japon et en Angleterre: la jeune Tsumiko, orpheline, hérite d'une tante inconnue et se retrouve propriétaire d'une maison immense et surtout d'un maître d'hôtel qui n'est pas humain et qui souffre de sa condition de quasi esclave.
Les "Amaranthine" sont des créatures animales douées d'intelligence, de capacité de se transformer en humains un peu particuliers malgré tout et pour lesquels les âmes humaines so ...more
Finished in one day.
Quite enjoyable. I liked most of the characters. It was like a fairytale. If this would have been longer And DEEPER, It’d be perfect. But for a read in one sitting, I had a good time reading it.
All I can say is this story is so UNIQUE!!!!!
I have a hard time putting all my thoughts on paper. If you've ever watched a manga series on TV (in my case it was Sailor Moon), or read manga comics, you'll love this book. It's so creative and it has this Japanese style to it. The premise is very manga. The book is full of characters that can shift into animals and have animal characteristics. There is this secret society, with magic and century old stories. The entire saga has an utterly f ...more
I'm a fan Ilona Andrews and thus I also read their blog and now & then they'd (mostly Ilona) recommend a book that they themselves liked. This was one of the times and the blurb had me snatched up in a second because:
1. It is awesome (absolutely my kind of book)
2. It totally reminds me of the manga/anime Kamisama Hajimemashita :D
The world created in Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox is truly interesting with it's Amaranthine race and the plot was also good enough.
And overall I did love the boo ...more

I never would have found out about Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox by Forthright if I hadn't seen Ilona Andrews recommending it on their blog. While I did enjoy reading this Japanese-inspired fantasy, I can't say that I loved it as much as everyone else who picked it up did. It has interesting worldbuilding and a sweet romance, but I felt like the writing takes some getting used to and by the time I got used to it, the book ...more
