Red river. Vol. 1
Shinohara, Chie
Adult Fiction SHINOHA

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Library Journal:

Originally transported to ancient Anatolia by the wicked queen Nakia to serve as a human sacrifice, Yuri Suzuki from modern Japan has taken on many challenges and won the heart of a prince. In these final volumes, the anticipated marriage and coronation of Kail and Yuri take place, and their descendants see the decline of the Hittite empire, culminating in a political marriage between the Hittite and Egyptian empires. Yuri is a tomboy who uses her athletic ability, modern education, and charisma to overcome many obstacles and receive her happy ending. With her distinct style, Shinohara is able to re-create ancient cities and geography, as well as make sympathetic secondary characters using humor and tragedy equally to complete this satisfying, award-winning series. Verdict Yuri is an intelligent and athletic heroine, an anomaly in shojo series populated by meek maidens, so this title is recommended for older teen or adult manga collections owing to violence and sexuality.-Christine Gertz, Univ. of Alberta (c) Copyright 2010.
