Tsumiko inherits an ancestral home, a vast fortune, and a butler who isnt 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 dont concern themselves with worldly affairs. Like the girls school run by Saint Midoris 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 hell die. Argent hates her for the hold she has over him, but he craves her soul almost as much as he craves his freedom....

Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox Reviews
I loved every aspect of this tale. Tsumiko and Argent were an awesome couple and the plot kept moving along so quickly. Read it twice in 24 hours just so I could soak it all in.
A quick, engrossing read. I enjoyed the mythology.
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
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

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
A very enjoying read. I first heard of this book when it was recommended by my favorite authors on theirs blog, and decided to give it a try. It is very well written, story is catching, and I couldn't put it aside until I was done. I felt that it was a finished story, even I would love to read the sequel to it. Definitely will be waiting for next book from this author.
A one day read
Read about this in Ilona Andrews' Blog on Wednesday afternoon. Since I enjoy their writing, any work Ilona recommended is one to consider. It's now 1a.m. Thursday morning. I liked the character development and the idea of non-humans teaching trust to their newest human mistress. I will read again, my mind needs a little time to settle the assorted species so I can better understand the next book.
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
