    1 thought on “Over the Mountain of the Moon: A Tale of a Samurai Consort”

    1. This was a beautiful and very emotional story, a romance in the best sense of the word. I'm normally not a big fan of insta-love, but I didn't mind it much here because I found it fitting. Although the heroes fell in love practically on first sight, it wasn't all flowers and rainbows for them afterwards; they had to work hard for their happiness. For one, there were many adverse circumstances to overcome, attempts at their lives, injuries, sickness, rough streets and bad weather, torture, separa [...]

    2. Normally, whenever I read about a young male character who's both too beautiful and too helpless, I wince. But Tetsuya is actually a lot more than that and I actually liked him, though he did have way too many weepy moments. Still, when it came to defending the man he loved, a noble samurai named Jin, he could hold his own. My only complaint--WHERE THE HELL WAS THE LUBE? If you're going to write M/M romance, do not forget that the anus DOES NOT create its own secretions. Every sex scene between [...]

    3. I'm a big fan of the adventure and the journey but what I don't like is the long drawn out plot line where the main characters don't know how the other person feels about them. This isn't like that. Tetsuya is so beautiful and fragile but once he decides to love Jin he does it heart and soul, leaving behind everything, all the safety he has in the world, to follow after the man who is now eveything. It reminded me of Musashi and his faithful love and I was enchanted. You get swept up in this, it [...]

    4. This was a great book. I was a bit worried about it being almost 300 pages, but the pacing is perfect, so you're never bogged down with too much information or drumming your fingers waiting for something to happen. One of my biggest gripes about historical novels is that the ones I've read seem to have a specific formula and they seem a bit redundant, so I usually avoid them. This book surprised me - the plot was not what I had in my head. I would love to see this made into a movie and would rec [...]

    5. This is a very enjoyable romanticized version of an action adventure samurai tale. The Samurai in this story, Kin, is extensively skilled with almost super human abilities and senses. He encounters Tetsuya who he finds himself attracted to but decides not to pursue him as he has a task he wants to focus on. However Tetusya and Jin do come together as Tetsuya rescues him from danger. Afterwards, Jin agrees, despite his reservations, to take Tetsuya along with him. While they encounter danger on t [...]

    6. This is like a MM "The Geisha & The Samurai" romance. It's a long adventure which ends abruptly, without clear long-term solution to the two heroes dilemma: how will the Lord of a Province rule and produce required heirs when he is in love and committed to man? Which arrangement will he find that could satisfy his lover on one side and his father and his people on the other side? At the end of the book, the heroes just go for a long ride, telling people not to expect them soon, and that's it [...]

    7. I really enjoyed this novel. The author did a wonderful job with the research and obviously enjoys writing about this era and it shows. Tetsuya, a concubine in the beginning, undergoes a metamorphosis from a soft, sought after beauty who distances himself from emotions to a person who gives up everything for the samurai he loves. Reiko Morgan's writing makes you believe in his transformation and in his love for Jin. I loved this story and was with the characters emotionally thru their trials and [...]

    8. I absolutely, completely and thoroughly enjoyed this book. My attention was riveted from word one and held until the end. I enjoyed the journey of the two main characters, both in Jin's need for revenge and Tetsuya and Jin's relationship.The setting was particularly exquisite; tangible and yet not overdone in description. The style was crisp and clean; my only complaint was that at the end we exploded into a strange number of POVs when we'd been just Tetsuya for so long. Even so, this is one of [...]

    9. I enjoyed this a lot, a lot.It was a slow read, but it was calming to read, the language was wonderful. Once I get into the style of writing, and speaking, which is exaggerated and overblown, I loved it. The style fits with the Japanese setting, and I was brought back to all that Anime I enjoy.

    10. I was a little hesitant to read another “courtesan” story, but this book’s preview chapters were so immensely compelling that I dove right in! The story remained compelling throughout, moving at a fast pace, with a new danger or difficulty around every corner that’s sure to keep you glued to your seat.Over the Mountain is probably the most sentimental and romantic book I’ve read in a while. I don’t say that as a negative, but I was a little surprised! The speed of Tetsuya and Jin’s [...]

    11. I really enjoyed the first two-thirds of this book. But its length stalled itself out.I'm not one who enjoys fluffy stories, and on the outside, taken without cultural context, this could probably be classified as a hurt-comfort fluff bunny story. There are a lot of tears and the devotions of love are rampant. However, I fell head-over-heels in love with this story. This book read just like a Japanese TV drama, which I am a fan of. Over the top scripts and high emotion are a hallmark, so this bo [...]

    12. In lieu of writing reviews – I’m taking an extended break – I decided to leave this list showing the reasons for the stars I’ve given to the stories I’ve read. 5 Stars – Given to stories that had me falling in love with the characters, had me so engaged in the plot I couldn’t put the book down and stories that either made me cry buckets and/or laugh until I cried. 4 Stars– Given to stories that I REALLY enjoyed reading but had me wishing for just a bit more. 3 Stars – Given to [...]

    13. A pleasant, naive, easy going reading with a rather plausible Japanese setting, in terms of secondary characters, dialogue, with a rather considerate life perspective, but not so much of a samurai world. On the background of a political feud, a few fateful meetings bound our samurai hero and a big hearted hero. You will find mentions about living life "bending instead of breaking" and how "true sacrifice has nothing to do with swords or battlefields, but with the quiet resolve from the heart and [...]

    14. Yaoi. A terrific opening few scenes. Starts strong, turns quotidian. Samurai who is really a prince (or Japanese equivalent) and a male geisha. Charming in beginning, and then their relationship and the sex is So Repetitive that I just got tired of it. And the grooming details, over and over. Way too long and bogs down in boring narrative in the middle. Hurt-comfort in unrealistic, they-get-well-way-too-fast way. Boring and trite, after a very, very good start.

    15. I really liked this book. It engaged me much more than any story has for quite some time. It becomes a real roller-coaster ride, especially near the end, when you're not sure if the two characters will live, or stay together. It's not perfect, though. There are several modern anachronisms in the writing, which for some people might be disturbing, but it didn't bother me too much.

    16. I wanted to love this book. I really, really did. The writing itself was very good, but the problem that kept me from loving it were some historical and cultural details that weren't accurate, and those pulled me out of the story. But overall the story was entertaining and I enjoyed it, and I'll look for more works by this author.

    17. I couldn't get through this book. Insta-love followed by overly flowery speech and a samurai who just "somehow knows" when the MCs are going to be attacked read too much like fan fiction for me.

    18. Jin and Tetsuya were so often in tears - I was in serious danger of drowning.The story was well written but had a bit too much "manga-feeling" for my taste.
