Night Itself

The Night Itself - Zoë Marriott Appealing heroine in Mio who takes her grandfather's sword for a costume party (teenagers) and unleashes strange and dark powers and makes terrible enemies. With trusty best friend, Jack (a girl actually) and another special friend (no spoiler) and with the aid of fox spirits (in the grand tradition of Japan mythology) she has to learn how to control the power of the sword.
Refreshingly pacy and lively dialogues make this YA debut (of a trilogy) something to look forward to.
