In an ancient Japan where the incursions of gods, ghosts, and demons into the living world is an everyday event, an impoverished nobleman named Yamada no Goji makes his living as a demon hunter for hire.

With the occasional assistance of the reprobate exorcist Kenji, whatever the difficulty — ogres, demons, fox-spirits — for a price Yamada will do what needs to be done, even and especially if the solution to the problem isn’t as simple as the edge of a sword.

Yet, no matter how many monsters he has to face, or how powerful and terrible they may be, the demons Yamada fears the most are his own!

I don’t know why I’m doing this to myself. The average score for Yamada Monogatari: Demon Hunter is 3.14 stars. Not so bad, right? And yet I have a bad feeling about it. I really do. Is it all just in my head?

Why am I doing this again? Oh yeah, it’s a free ebook. And the cover is nice. Oh well..

As you can see I wasn’t even able to finish it. Worldbuilding, where is the worldbuilding? And the characters are idiotic. And the story is boring and clichéd. Richard Parks didn’t even do his homework on Japanese culture properly.


Look at this grey box. Look at it carefully. What do you see? A grey box. This is exactly what Yamada Monogatari: Demon Hunter means to me.
