Mythological Mondays 9/5

It's been a while since I've participated in Mythological Mondays-- an awesome weekly meme hosted by Bonnie at A Backwards Story to bring attention to all things mythology related. 


As I was surfing NetGalley for new books, I came across this little number by Esther Friesner. She is the author of the Helen of Troy books Nobody's Princess and Nobody's Prize


Spirit's Princess (Princesses of Myth)Himiko the beloved daughter of a chieftain in third century Japan has always been special. The day she was born there was a devastating earthquake, and the tribe's shamaness had an amazing vision revealing the young girl's future—one day this privledged child will be the spiritual and tribal leader over all of the tribes. Book One revolves around the events of Himiko's early teen years—her shaman lessons, friendships, contact with other tribes, and journey to save her family after a series of tragic events. Once again, Esther Friesner masterfully weaves together history, myth, and mysticism in a tale of a princess whose path is far from traditional.
I don't know much about Japanese mythology, but this one sounds good!
