The Twelve Kingdoms, Volume 2: Sea of Wind.
The Twelve Kingdoms book. With the Twelve Kingdoms series, Fuyumi Ono has created a high fantasy universe on a par with the more familiar medieval European milieu. Her "Middle Earth" springs out of ancient China, and boasts a highly complex cultural and political system, interwoven with the "rational" use of magic. At the same time, the trilogy of novels covering Youko's adventure is a classic exploration of the hero's journey (or "monomyth"). This was quite the page turner and I am very much looking forward to Volume 2, Sea of Wind. Nov 11, 2008 Nate rated it really liked it.

The Sea of Shadow is the first of seven novels in the Twelve Kingdoms series. The storyline itself is pretty straightforward: a teenage girl living an ordinary life is suddenly pulled into a completely different world where she has to fight for her life at every turn and soon discovers that she is the new ruler/savior of the land. As this is just the first volume, a lot of time is spent explaining the world, which is almost all done through dialog rather than narration. This was a good move by the author because it allows the reader and Yoko to both learn through the explanations and Yoko's questions without being crit for 9999 damage by walls of text. Also, the lessons are broken up by travel, other conversation, fights, and rare humor so that it never struck me as boring.
Vol 1 – Sea of Shadow. Vol 3 – The Vast Spread of Seas. Vol 4 – The Sky at Dawn. Note: The light novels were released in both hardcover and paperback formats.
