Amaranthine Saga Series

Amaranthine Saga is a book series by a little-known American authoress, called Forthright, who writes Japanese mythology-inspired literary works. Incidentally, the mononymous Forthright’s books are modeled on the articles that she used to contribute to the Fandom website.

A participant of challenges such as Inktober and NaNoWriMo; Forthright has been encouraging her readers to recommend and send her—by commenting on her blog—both writing prompts and illustrations since 2018, including anime drawings and expressions. Forthright also incorporates her so-called fanart, readers’ polls—conducted on the Patreon website—and fan’s requests on her Twitter account. Forthwright, who compares her fantastic writing style to C.J. Milbrandt’s, also specializes with the paranormal romance genre.

Books in the Amaranthine Saga Series

Amaranthine Saga is Forthright’s most-renowned series, courtesy of the thousands of ratings that overshadow her other Songs Amaranthine Saga and Forthright Fiction book series. Amaranthine is named after the featured mythical animal characters who conflict with human ideals.

Originally dated February 22, 2018; Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox is Forthright’s first book in her Amaranthine Saga series. The book’s protagonists are legendary creatures called Tsumiko Hajime and Argent. Tsumiko is an intelligent girl whose next of kin has willed her an estate, including a live-in butler called Argent. Incidentally, Tsumiko had been schooling in a girls-only boarding institution in the run-up to her inheritance, while Argent is a centuries-old servant fox shifter.

Tsumiko now has to use her hitherto unknown supernatural powers to communicate with Argent, a male fox shifter who was formerly under her aunt’s care. Argent not only dislikes associating with Tsumiko, but he also misuses Tsumiko’s kindness despite loving her soul. Argent’s defiance and his rebellious attitude is a result of his enslavement and intergenerational hereditament.

First dated October 22, 2018; Kimiko and the Accidental Proposal is the second book in Forthright’s Amaranthine Saga series. Its protagonist Kimiko starts schooling—her witty younger sister influenced Kimiko’s admittance—at a high school called In-between whose objectives include facilitating the interaction between (the children of the) people and their shape shifting counterparts; thereby enabling the harmonious lives of the diverse beings and their respective racial tolerance. One of the social issues is a shape-shifter that kidnaps then rapes women.

Kimiko is mandated to negotiate peace among the two groups—between the shape shifters called Amaranthine and the ordinary people who are called the Muggles—courtesy of her magical abilities which classifies her in the group called the Reavers whose members see her as a social outcast nevertheless. Kimiko jeopardizes her role as a negotiator when she hands over something to a shifter called Quen; Kimiko unwittingly starts a romantic affair with Quen, although she did not know that gifting something to someone of the opposite gender is proposing. Luckily, her kith and kin rallies behind her.

Initially dated July 22, 2019; Tamiko and the Two Janitors is the third book in the Amaranthine Saga series. Its protagonist is a Japanese-American woman called Tamiko Reaverson. The book has an America seting, where the regional Amaranthine shifters are wrongly suspected of attacking the locals; consequently, the shifters are reluctant to reveal their identities—and also afraid to enroll their children in schools— due to the racial intolerance exhibited through the ensuing protests.

Tamiko uses her new position as the principal of the Hisoka Twineshaft to sensitize the people about and enable the shifters to take advantage of the educational and economic opportunities. By and by, Tamiko learns about other localized but secretive shifters, including two supportive janitors at her school; the life-time janitors, called Kip and Ash, turn out to be lovers and Amaranthine members.

Originally released on September 22, 2020; Mikoto and the Reaver Village is the fourth book in the Amaranthine Saga series. The protagonist is Mikoto Reaver who is aged seventeen and a local leader (he inherited his late father’s former headman role) of an off-grid mountainous village called Wardenclave that organizes not only springtime grants for the education of other teenage reavers worldwide but also summertime camps.

There is a professional matchmaker called Glint Starmark who is famed for his thousands of years of matchmaking service. And yet Mikoto wants to consult to consult his romantic interest before he can heed Glint’s recommendation of a lover.

The soon-to-be released Funiko and the Finicky Nestmate is the fifth book in the Amaranthine Saga series. This book introduces dragon shifters and different entities that are seeking age-old mystic weapons that some call Four Storms, while others call those weapons The Junzi—and alternatively named Four Gentlemen. One of those interested in the weapons is a character called Hisoka Twineshaft who hopes to wield those weapons against a notorious thief that is called the Gentleman Bandit.

Among those tasked with guarding the weapons are a mythic character called Juuyu Farroost who leads an elite fighting team. Thus, Juust interacts with, and is distracted by, an orphaned twin tree called Fumiko—the two are the book’s protagonists—who may also jeopardize their mission.
