#BookReview: The Beast Warrior (The Beast Player #3-4) by Nahoko Uehashi, Cathy Hirano (Translation)






Synopsis: A companion to The Beast Player, this is the conclusion of an epic YA fantasy about a girl with a special power to communicate with magical beasts and the warring kingdom only she can save.

Ten years after the fateful clash between two opposing sides of the Divine Kingdom of Lyoza, Elin lives a peaceful life with her family. She tries to stay as far away from her past as possible—the girl who communicated with creatures and befriended a Royal Beast wants no part in the power struggles of humans. But when Elin is called upon to investigate a mysterious illness that's stricken the Toda, she uncovers a startling plot—one that could threaten everything she holds dear.

In this thrilling sequel to The Beast Player, Elin must confront her destiny and the dire warnings of history. Is a final battle between the Toda and the Royal Beasts inevitable? Or will it mean destruction for all?

Rating: ★★★★
My Review: This book was crazy good.  It picks years later after the end of the first book and I just loved getting back to this world.  The animal human relationships in this were amazing and I just loved the world and the creatures.  I really hope this one gets picked up as a movie or something because it would be amazing.  The characters were great as well. Everything worked so well in this one.
