In the Realm of Ash and Sorrow by Kenneth Harmon (Book Review #741)


In the realm of ash and sorrow is a historical fiction and magical realism story written about Micah Lund and Kiyomi Oshiro. Micah is a bombardier who has lost his mother and brother. He is seeking revenge. Kiyomi is a Japanese war widow who is only focused on saving her daughter.

As Micah is on his mission, he meets Kiyomi, and the two instantly find an attraction between each other. The emotions and the love between them then took over the story, and the combination of the history from the world war 11 and the added setting of the story being placed in Japan, really created a poetic, fun, inter-layered tale.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The literature was robust and well-intended. This made the story enthralling and thought-provoking. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It felt magical and explored many individual effects and reactions to the set time period.

I look forward to reading more from this author as he managed to include many aspects and elements to the story to make it unique.

I recommend this book to anyone interested in historical fiction and love stories.
