"I won an ARC of this book in a Goodreads giveaway!

Okay, so I already liked the concept of this book before I even received it. Asian-inspired fantasies seem to do better in the middle-grade genre than in YA because in middle-grade novels there's usually more action and less romance, and The Twelve totally lived up to those expectations. There is no romance featured in this book at all, and the training and fighting make up most of the book. And it was awesome training and fighting.

Just be aware that the majority of this book is somewhat of a slow build-up to the grand finale. It's pretty much worth it, though, because that's the part of the story that gets you closer to the characters, especially our main heroine, Usagi.

The ending will knock your socks off - or your sandals, if you're wearing ones like our main characters. Either way, I loved it and thought the slow-paced rising action was worth reading because of the climax.

I have just one lingering question about The Twelve - The characters are named after the member of the Chinese Zodiac that they represent... but in Japanese. Why's that?!

3,5 stars

This is a fun middle-grade fantasy based on the Chinese zodiac system where people can be born with certain powers based on their birth year. I found the plot simplistic but quite exciting in the beginning, the characters were likable and the world building was rather unique. But I also didn't like the writing style that was too heavy for such a book, in my opinion, and the plot got out of hand by the end of the novel and I didn't like the resolution that the author presented.

Overall, I still enjoyed the story but it could've been even cooler with some editing involved.
