In the Land of the Crane is the first book in The Kiko Ochisan Adventure series by Lina Vine. It is a fast paced, adventure with drama, action, some culturally informative elements- and is very detailed and descriptive. This is the authors debut and is a very quick and easy novella sized read.
We meet Kiko Ochisan a former Secret Agent for Japan who was dismissed for, and still recovering from a failed mission. She seeks the guidance of her spiritual Master who tasks her with an unusual mission. This propels Kiko on an adventure she never saw coming, discovering secrets, facing danger and so much more.
There really is a lot going on in this small space, but the author choreographs it into a smooth, and captivating read. I am really looking forward to book #2 ‘The Blue Heart Mission”, due out in July this year.
Thank you, Lina Vine!
