We rated this book:


In Taisho-era Japan, demons are running rampant. This evil is eating, threatening, and depleting people’s happiness. With their Nichirin Swords, the Demon Slayer Corp devote themselves to ridding the land of all evil. One young slayer, Tanjiro, is determined to save his sister from her demonic curse. He searches the mountains at night for the flower from the vine lantern. Legend says that if one sleeps with the flower, they will marry their true love. Tanjiro hopes the flower will help transform his sister from a demon to a human.

Demon Slayer: The Flower of Happiness is the first light novel in this popular series. Written by Aya Yajima, the book stays true to the Demon Slayer Corp in their usual hijinks. Even though this book is easy enough to follow, it is part of a much larger franchise. Besides the newly introduced novels, Demon Slayer was originally a manga series, later adapted into anime, movies, and games. Yajima’s book is perfect for those who enjoy the story in its many forms. As a standalone novel, it could also be a great introduction to the world of Demon Slayer.
