Koyasan by Darren Shan

An absolutely wonderful tale of Koyasan and the lengths she went to in order to save her younger sister. Koyasan was teased for being too afraid to cross the bridge to play in the graveyard with the other village children and after an argument, her sister ran across the bridge at night to play in the graveyard. The spirits were angry, lonely monsters who stole her sister’s soul and only Koyasan could get it back–if she could conquer her fears and defeat three warriors selected by the spirits.

I loved Koyasan’s perseverance and logical thinking. Sometimes things are not at all what they first appear to be and conquering her fears, silencing her inner demon, and finding inner strength made Koyasan the perfect hero.

Another great story by Darren Shan!
